    There was and is widespread support for the scheme, which is seen as sensible and moderate by the vast majority of people, including apparently many people who own the offending guns who are rushing to hand them in.

    A lot of people (me included) did not realise that NZ had such lax gun laws.
    Yes and those 119 will have to accept responsibility for other events that may follow. Increase in violent crime, knife attacks, acid attacks, home invasions. Do home invasions take place in NZ?, yet?

    Look to me like the barrel could be shortened 18 inches and the handle cut off for easy concealment. But don't do that, it will affect the buyback value.

    All jokes aside NKW, I think Americans have more than enough on their plate to sort out the inextricable situation in their own land. Advice to other countries on how to sort out the comparatively minor (gun-related) problems may be viewed as unwelcome by some.

    Hint: muzzling the lobbies might go along way to sorting out that mess.

    Here is a non sequitur, Is France still banning the burqa? or have even considered it?

    Pretty sure we won't be following that advice.

    .
    You are correct. The homicide rate amongst young black men is staggering and is our biggest gun problem. I do not think any buy back or legislation will affect that in any immediate fashion. The fix to be long term of some kind. If we had an answer, we'd be France.

    The thing you’ll notice about France is their President isn’t continually spouting nonsense on Twitter. Certainly he has never (to my knowledge) even suggested that any other country follow french tactics of how to deal internally with extremists. The solution (for France) would ideally be a socioeconomic solution, create employment and opportunities for the disadvantaged sections of our society. Come to think of it, the US could benefit from such progressive thinking herself. Although something tells me progressive socio-économiques is not something the Drump could get his tiny mind around. Let’s face it he can’t grasp simple economics. Let alone the complexity of social issues across the globe.
    He still thinks
    bilateral trade deficits
    are an issue.

    .
    Is there an example of a country where progressive socio-economics has worked?

    Got to find the problem before you find the solution. Do you know the problem? I'm sure it ain't the French govt.

    Is the burqa how France identifies extremists?
