Breaking Views: Stephen Franks: Why practical Police will not use a gun register

SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE

Highly regarded lawyer Stephen Franks makes it clear as to why the Labour coalition Government gun buy back scheme and draconian laws are a huge mistake, and risk splitting asunder the hitherto strong levels of trust between Police and the NZ public.

He shows it it is an appallingly bad and senseless piece of legislation, affecting the innocent and not at all affecting the career criminal set.

“It takes deliberately offensive steps against rural and shooting sports people…to posture before the world commentariat….It is cynical opportunism.”

Let us hope the NZ public shows their dissatisfation at the upcoming elections in September this year.
