Helen has been away too long...

While some may feel that to target Jacinda Ardern while attending a primary school function with a protest was a poor choice of venue, for Helen Clark to link this event to mass shootings in US schools, shows deplorable taste on her part and how out of touch she is.

 

The only shootings that take place in New Zealand schools are sporting events enjoyed by the pupils. As for Nash describing the honest Kiwi protesters as a showdowy group spreading misinformation, he is just trying to deflect attention from his own incompetence as Minister of Police, who has failed to take responsibility for the failings of his department.

It is good to see that other protests went off without issue.

“As we approach the end of the amnesty, make sure you have taken appropriate action with any prohibited firearms, parts, magazines and ammo and you are following all the current security requirements.”

 

ANOTHER THREAT TO OUR SECURITY

 

I am sure we would all like to think that this case of a cop accessing the Police data base and on selling information to criminal gangs is a one off. However it clearly has the potential to happen again. That is another reason why we oppose a gun register.

If you are one of those who have been notified by Police that your data was breached last week please relate your experience of this event to the Office of the Auditor General at:  Henry.Broughton@oag.govt.nz

 

Here’s looking forward to an uneventful week, with no more law changes.

 

As we approach the end of the amnesty, make sure you have taken appropriate action with any prohibited firearms, parts, magazines and ammo and you are following all the current security requirements.

 

All the best,

 

Phil
