    Am I the only one who thinks that training to break into someone’s house and shoot them while they sleeping is a rather strange thing to do if you aren’t in the military?

    In order to properly convert this thread to a polyasshat thread to more fully enrage the liberal left frequenting here...... (insert latest democratic blunder of your choice).

    I’m visiting NZ right now, and all this makes sense to me.

    I think their categorization and avoiding nebulous 'assault rifles' is smart. Saves pedantic argument. Namely here:

    Military-style semi-automatics

    (MSSAs) include semi-automatic rifles and shotguns that have any of the following components:

    A folding or telescopic butt
    A bayonet lug
    A military pattern free-standing pistol grip
    A flash suppressor
    A magazine that holds more than 7 rounds; magazines holding up to 10 rounds may be modified to carry 7 rounds. The limit on rimfire is 15 rounds per magazine.
    A detachable magazine that holds more than 10 rounds, excepting rimfire magazines, which may carry 15 rounds.

    A Category firearms are those that do not fall into any other category, and are the vast majority of legally-owned firearms in New Zealand, and support a surprisingly wide number of types. For example, semi-automatic AR-15 style rifles are permitted in this category provided they can only hold 7 or less rounds as well as meeting the other criteria.

    If the robbers weren't pussies, they would have killed the old man

    The old man will be sued for shooting first

    The shotgun was enough to ward off the idiots with the AR but not enough to prevent him from suffering a heart attack as they were running away. If only there was something we could do to prevent these things.

    Good news folks. They're going to keep the AR-15s locked in a safe, not carry them around the schools during the day.. That way NOBODY will be able to get them before a bad actor has wreaked havoc in the school... And, no doubt they'll be stolen in the middle of the night before that happens anyway. No doubt those safes will be every bit as well maintained as Ufvalde's doors were.

    Yeah that's silly.

    Not nearly as silly as having a person in a wheelchair, on an entry team.

    Poll responses seem to show support for common sense gun regulations.

    I think some of the usual suspects are keeping it prominent. Ii think many people are somewhat fed up with the gun violence and the culture that wants to see guns everywhere as the only solution.
    Everywhere they loosen gun restrictions as part of the solution ends up with higher rates of gun deaths. I don't really want to live in a society where people are paranoid and armed to the teeth. I'd sort of prefer to not have to worry about it, and it would be nice to stroll in and out of places without a pat down or metal detector. Quality of life, seems to decline the more guns are around.

    Actually, the definition of insanity is suffering from severe mental illness. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results is stupidity. Makes a nice sound bite though

    Not only that, Einstein (who the quote is most often attributed to) never even said it.

    Wait wait wait, does this mean that the guns enter the system legally and are then stolen from irresponsible owners?
    That would mean... Too many guns owned by too many irresponsible people are a major source of the problem! In short... Too many guns!
    What a breakthrough revelation!
    That should be an easy problem to solve, fewer guns for everyone would reduce the problem! I did it guys, I figured it out.
