Hands up those who believe the gun control hysteria we have been suffering these last nine months was a reaction to the terrible terrorist atrocity in Christchurch.

 

Wrong! It's origin dates back considerably further than last March as I have just found in this article from January 2013.

It is time for the police to be reined in again before they completely destroy what is left of "policing by consent."

 

Our best hope of achieving this is for us all to get firmly behind the legal challenges being mounted by the COLFO Fair and Reasonable Campaign and if you haven't signed up yet please consider doing so.

 

There is also a new article by former MP Richard Prosser in the elocal online magazine which may have been suppressed because the link is not currently working:
