Thomas Kitchendon't really know what to say about this.
so this is a supplementary paper to the arms prohibited bill not to sure the difference between a supplementary paper and an amendment.
all of it is a concern but this part probably would be most likely to this group
82ASection 74A amended (Order in Council relating to definitions of prohibited firearm and prohibited magazine, and declaring prohibited ammunition)
Replace section 74A(a) with:
amend the description in section 2A of a semi-automatic firearm (except a small semi-automatic pistol) or pump-action shotgun that is a prohibited firearm:
Replace section 74A(c) with:
declare any semi-automatic firearm (except a small semi-automatic pistol) or pump-action firearm of a stated name or description to be a prohibited firearm for the purposes of this Act:
think there's a brief submission period to this so will keep you updated

Re: more sneaky firearm law changes: Supplementary Order Paper No 408From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Collective punishment is a form of retaliation whereby a suspected perpetrator's family members, friends, acquaintances, sect, neighbors or entire ethnic group is targeted. The punished group may often have no direct association with the other individuals or groups, or direct control over their actions. In times of war and armed conflict, collective punishment has resulted in atrocities, and is a violation of the laws of war and the Geneva Conventions. Historically, occupying powers have used collective punishment to retaliate against and deter attacks on their forces by Resistance movements (such as destroying entire towns and villages which were believed to have harboured or aided such resistance movements).
