Warwick MarflittJust saw this on the Fairandreasonable COLFO PAGE. Unreal eh!
FRIDAY 29 NOVEMBER 2019
A Police announcement today of an exemption for firearm owners stuck in a long queue for Police approval omits to mention a serious change in the rules for compensation.
Thousands of owners have applied for exemptions to hold prohibited firearms for pest control, for licenses to continue as antique collectors and other exemptions provided for in the law. They now get up to 30 days to apply for compensation if their special category applications are turned down.
But new regulation 28LA lets the Commissioner unilaterally decide not to compensate fully for more than the quantity of parts and magazines that the Commissioner considers appropriate for the reasonable personal use of the person.
The Council of Licensed Firearms Owners (COLFO) spokesperson Nicole McKee says that a change not mentioned by the Police is sinister.
It should worry all New Zealanders, particularly people with larger than average farms or houses, or with more than enough of anything.
Collectors are enthusiasts. They often have more parts than the rest of us consider necessary for personal use.
The regulation reneges on the key reassurance from the government, reiterated this month by the Prime Minister in talking to US entertainer Stephen Colbert, that people would get fair compensation.
Nicole McKee says the right to compensation for property confiscated by the government was inherited with the Treaty. That is the basis of the last 30 years of Treaty settlements. It was included in laws like Public Works Act, and the Arms Act before it was changed earlier this year.
But those rights are excluded for this confiscation. The new regulation effectively means that if you hand in more bits than the Police think you needed, you dont deserve normal rights. Theyll just seize your excess and the market value is irrelevant. They might give you your cost price, if you can prove what it was.
Some magazines cost over $200 each. Many have heritage value, and of course inflation has made the cost price irrelevant, even if you can show what it was.
How many people can prove the price they paid for much loved items bought many years ago?
McKee said the arrogance of this change is inexcusable. With only a month from the end of the amnesty, the government is still trying to clarify key provisions without consulting with the community.
But theyve decided they dont mind trashing rule of law principles, whether it is warrantless entry, privacy, extraordinary Police powers, and compensation principles, because its being done to sports shooting people.

Structural discrimination in New Zealand
Structural discrimination (also known as structural inequality, systemic discrimination, institutional racism, and white supremacy) occurs in a society "when an entire network of rules and practices disadvantages less empowered groups while serving at the same time to advantage the dominant group". The Human Rights Commission in New Zealand have asserted that there is strong, consistent evidence that structural discrimination is a real and ongoing issue in the country. The Commission has acknowledged the importance of addressing institutional barriers within New Zealand's social institutions, stating that these barriers help to create social inequalities which in turn limit the access to and fulfillment of New Zealand's human rights obligations.
In the New Zealand Department of Social Welfare's (1988) Report, Puao-te-Ata-tu, it was noted that structural discrimination is the most insidious and destructive form of racism. The Report found that the negative effects of structural discrimination were wide reaching and inter-generational and primarily disadvantaged New Zealands most vulnerable groups. Joris de Bres, New Zealands Race Relations Commissioner from 2002-2013, stated that the systems and processes in New Zealand public services are not sufficiently sensitive to the diversity of its population. He argued that addressing structural discrimination is vitally important for New Zealand as currently structural disadvantage is being perpetuated with Māori, Pasifika, and ethnic minorities not getting equal outcomes through their access and interaction with public service bodies.
The Good thing and most impressive is that none of us licensed gun owners have raised a weapon to defend our privilege?
Lots of Police walking around intimidating everyone with their semi auto guns. Scaremongering and fabricating........ Enforcing The illegal collective punishment on people not responsible for, OR associated with the Mongrel Tarant (Article 33 of the 4th Geneva Convention)
Meanwhile here we are trying to engage in intellectual fact based dialogue and we get slammed and ostracized for it. The biggest kick really is that mainstream asininity in New Zealand has sat by and aloud us to be blamed for another fuckwits actions..........If/When China, Russia, Nth Korea or any other forces try to take over the world do you really think that NZ defense forces 10,000 members will defend you and our land? No! Fanciful thoughts maybe..... But Then look at Pike River, Christchurch, Japan 2011 Tsnuami, earth quakes etc....... They werent meant to but did happen.........
To our leaders remember that
"There's a difference between us. You think the people of this land exist to provide you with position. I think your position exists to provide those people with freedom.Please make sure that they have it".
To every New Zealand License holder! Follow the Law, but don't fear to speak out and defend your legal rights. Too everyone else. Don't be so quick to throw us under the bus because we said it has bald tires, its brakes don't work and your grand-kids are going down the mountain in it and it just left the building........
We've been set up for this for a long while just look at this from March 2012.
Search and Surveillance Bill passes
Take care and stay safe.
