New Conservative Firearms Policy 2 May 2019

Published: Fri 3 May 2019 09:21 AM
New Conservative releases its Firearms Policy today to support the 250,000 firearms licence holders in New Zealand following several months of discussions with key people in the firearms community.
Our government unnecessarily rushed through their firearms reforms without proper consultation, which means that we have aviation safety personnel threatened with arrest for simply protecting aircraft, we have representative shooters who can no longer practice for international competitions, and we have a film industry restricted in the scenes they can shoot.
Most firearms users we have spoken to saw the need to reform the previous firearms legislation. However, they wanted the opportunity to help create legislation that was robust, protected the population, but also recognised the needs and rights of law-abiding New Zealanders to access and use these firearms where required.
“With the stroke of a pen the government criminalised a large segment of New Zealanders who had done no wrong, without proper debate or process. New Conservative is committed to right that wrong and be a voice for New Zealanders who believe in a fair go,” says Leader Leighton Baker.
