Some hope for New Zealand...

"Now the good news: New Zealanders are not complying. There are an estimated “1.2 million to 1.5 million firearms in New Zealand,” yet only “about 700 firearms have been voluntarily surrendered.”

More good news: There’s no registry of semi-auto firearms in NZ, so door-to-door armed thefts of such firearms can’t be done.

There may not be a general registry but NZ firearms owners have to have a licence which carries endorsements for various categories of firearms owned.

A Category 'E' endorsement allowed the holder to possess and use Military-style semi-automatics (MSSAs) but was issued only to applicants showing a genuine reason for needing to use an MSSA - such as professional hunting, or participation in service rifle or other specified competitions.

Weapons other than sporting-configuration rifles and shotguns must be individually registered, and transfer of possession is subject to prior approval by the police.

Enzeds on here will know more than me but I think these guns can be found.

I hope that a lot of kiwis have lost their guns in canoe accidents.
Knee jerk politics are just an excuse to outlaw things that the politicians have been waiting and wanting to outlaw.

That sucks but shows how insidious 'backdoor registration' really is.

I wish our fellow citizens understood that.

They seem to support 'universal background checks' ONLY in the form that requires registration; but that may be due to the fact that nobody informs them that it would be perfectly feasible to have 'background checks' WITHOUT registration. No reason an ordinary citizen shouldn't be allowed to check out a potential purchaser via NICS, but there is no need to require that any serial numbers be handed over to the government in the process.

NEVER believe that they do not.

Bingo!

One would think that in a world chuck-full of examples of how this plays out, especially in English-speaking countries (no excuses for poor translations), no one in their right mind would follow this path. Alas, most of the world now is populated by historically-illiterate sheep...
