    Default Re: Changes to the Firearms Act

    When/if there's a buy-back, will the full cost of the weapon be refunded?

    What about extra mags?
    What about custom scopes?
    What about custom engraving?

    you can make home made guns if you want.

    so what lengths is it worth going to?

    if you put the fixed mag in, put a bit of glue around it, then you would need to destroy the gun to get it out to fit a big mag in.

    to be honest their best move is to actually get rid of the high capacity mags. why? because its really hard to make good working ones. even aftermarket ones can be absolutely rubbish.
    they are critical to the semi-auto function. so they have to be very well made.
    some older guns used to come with big mags and when those mags come up for sale, they are worth more than the gun itself. people will pay that sort of money rather than make one.
    Stop making so much sense, you can't get praise from the world's leftist media with an attitude like that.

    I present a C/P from what is SUPPOSEDLY from one of your news-sources that has been re-transmitted via BuzzFeed.com ---> for your comments and for my edification.

    Personally I think this report is BS 'cause I'm pretty sure that youse guys would not like to be turned into instant law defying subjects. But this is the stuff we hear........[/I]
    It's been amazing, over the last week I've been flicking between CNN/MSNBC/FOX and they've all been using it to push their own agendas. US media and politicians have been disgusting over this.

    Nevertheless Stuff.co.nz and the Herald both had big articles gleaming over how a few people had the heart to hand in their weapons to the police for destruction. I agree with tweak'e, most people will just stay silent until they hear about what the price and conditions for the buy back are.

I'd recommend put your misgivings or mistrust aside and look objectively at the content.

    All we know at this stage is that there will be one.

    Joe, it seems to have escaped your notice, but I have been - on purpose - regularly posting in full, the NZ Police press releases.

    Factual, apolitical, concise accounts of what is really happening. Devoid of conjecture, media, social comment, political agenda, lobbying.

    Yes, this government further spending our money yet again irresponsibly. Expenditure we can't afford. Reducing even further the healthy reserves they inherited when taking over the Treasury benches.

    Here's a good line "You can't change the 2nd Amendment". "Yes you can, it's called an amendment"

    Here's another good one: "50% of the people [in this room] realise that this is a comedy show and it's not to be taken seriously and they're laughing along because it's just funny jokes."

    Perhaps the value of the weapon rather than the cost might be refunded? (Although the depreciation on a crushed weapon renders the value fairly low.)
    Extra mags will get you extra feel-good points for surrendering them rather than having them stored in a Solar-deprived region.
    Custom scopes will be returned after the lenses and other materials are removed (It's the thought that counts.)
    Custom engraving will be returned after the wood, plastic and metal bits are removed and crushed.

    (Australians get a special discount plus a lifetime supply of Lucas ammunition, guaranteed fire-proof.)
    Entropy is not what
    it used to be.
