Gun reforms: my response to the government’s initial gun law changes

It’s been a while since I’ve posted here, but given the ongoing interest in gun control measures following Christchurch, here is a link to a column I wrote for RNZ on the many beneficial qualities and general sanity of the government’s initial Order in Council banning most semi-auto firearms on 21 March 2019.

I can’t add much to Pablo’s excellent analysis of the extremism and national security aspects of the case, but for my sins, gun stuff is something I can write about.

Shortly I’ll also post a copy of my submission on the Arms (Prohibited Firearms, Magazines, and Parts) Amendment Bill currently before the house.

I call myself a sensible moderate, but not in the same way Peter Dunne does.
