Election Promises Cheaper Cigarettes: etc:

 NZ Government quote of the week -Tuesday "THE ARMY DOESN'T TOLERATE VIOLENCE IN THE RANKS"..

Err whaaat? - Is that with or without the grenades, LAV's, missiles & machine guns??

- Never mind - the proles will buy that along with all the other mushroom fertiliser eh .. maybe tell em that you're going to make cigarettes cheaper to buy ..

 .. The also run parties happily promise they'll fill your wish list with golden ticks .. when they've no chance of being held to it .. but what is even worse - your Party votes for those groups NOT currently in Parliament will certainly be re-allocated to the opposing parties under the MMP Sainte Lague formula.

I've concluded that the biggest single issue that is corrupting our modern lives has to be that the millionaire owned media just promotes all their millionaire's bullshit lies & opinions - daily slopping into the feed bowls. - DOUBLE THINK from '1984' seems to just flow continuously like weak porridge into the voters ears.

As shooters we rightly are angry about the stupid changes to the 1983 Firearms Act that restrict and punish legally Licensed gun owners ... The single chance we now have is to change the make-up of Parliament by 

PARTY VOTING act 


& local candidate vote National.


FULL STOP.

AND Furthermore .. Dissonance Around NZ Police PCCK

- There's that old saying that goes "Only in America .." but I'd like to note that the stupidity of the latest changes to our local kiwi firearm laws strongly suggest the new phrase "Only in New Zealand" may soon replace it. 

NZ Police management are tying themselves into knots to generate deterrent policies of their choosing to restrict licensed / endorsed shooters .. with this latest example about using a carbine-like stock attachment 'PCCK' for handguns at the Police approved-certified pistol clubs.

Dissonance is inconsistency between one's actions and one's beliefs:

They have invented a new class (of NON-FIREARM) that they are calling a Pistol Carbine Conversion Kit ...

A Glock Semi-auto Pistol Mounted into a Roni "Pistol Carbine Stock"

.. Whereas in the "gun free" Mother Country of Great Britain - the only cartridge firing Handguns currently permitted to target shooters are the very similar sized LBP"Long Barrelled Pistols" that have to be modified with a lengthened barrel plus a grip or stock that is extended to the rear:


Of course "ordinary" pistols/revolvers ARE available all over UK - 
for the Police, criminals & DRUG DEALERS .. Just not for the legal subject shooters ..
Permitted British Long Barrelled Pistols

- It certainly seems somewhat illogical that one British jurisdiction is demanding long handguns - while our British New Zealand Police executive seem to be ploughing their own furrow by introducing restrictions & impediments to restrict the use of long handguns by some competition shooters ..

Illogical sure - but not unexpected - as the hundreds of pages of new legislation introduced by police here are wholly illogical, un-reasoned, & punitive and will have zero affect on the violent use of weapons in New Zealand crime .. the only purpose seems to be to camoflauge and obfuscate exactly  how New Zealand firearms regulations were so underfunded and unenforced as to result in white supremacist mass murderer BRENTON TARRANT being granted a Firearms Licence and issued with a permit by Police to buy thousands of rounds of ammunition for his guns.

Marty K.

Please carefully use your Party Vote at the coming Election. -
- If licensed shooters divide their party votes between two or more different parties .. they are halving their voting power.
- Also remember that all Party votes for groups that fail to enter Parliament are added to other parties.

More Nonsense From NZ Police - Conversion Stocks

 Oh Dear ... Oh Dear ... Oh Dear

Our "Authorities" seem to be intent on making themselves a laughing stock throughout the world.

- Actually it might be laughable IF it wasn't so pathetic and expensively punitive & pointlessly restrictive on fully law-abiding fit and proper licensed New Zealand firearms owners.

Here in New Zealand a handful of fully licensed and properly vetted sporting firearms owners - complete with properly interviewed referees .. have purchased plastic conversion stocks that enable them to mount their properly licensed and registered target shooting handguns as a sort of pistol calibre carbine for use on-range


Glock 17 Pistol Mounted in RONI Stock

Let's be clear here - these stocks don't alter the handgun's performance or capabilities in any way .. they are not "bump stocks" or magic sniper telescopes - all they do is add considerable bulk and expense to give a three point grip when used rather than a single or two handed grip.

As part of ever increasing and ineffective anti-gun regulations - the NZ Police are introducing yet another layer of administrative paperwork to confuse the issues of firearms ownership here.

They have invented yet another new acronym "PCCK" (Pistol Carbine Conversion Kit) to throw into the legislation alongside "MSSA"s - which will no doubt be used to confuse the media commentators and to frighten the timorous.

In all fairness to Police .. they do seem to be also concerned that soft air toy gun shooters have been buying toy PCCKs to run about with at their clubs popping them off at each other in competitive games ...
The real problem arises with registered & licensed antique arms collectors who invest thousands of hard earned dollars in non-shooting highly collectable Boer War C 96 Mauser pistols .. like the one used by 'Laurence of Arabia' as these (and other collectables  including some Lugers) come complete with a wooden "leg of mutton" holster that also clips onto the Mauser's grip converting it into a kind of carbine:

Currently Police are proposing that current Licensed Collectors wishing to retain their legally owned property need to complete a Permit to Possess Form - FRM67A - PCCK. 

There is a strong likelihood that these registered collectors will also be required to deface & devalue their important museum pieces by permanently stamping or engraving these stocks with an invented serial number.

Link
ww.police.govt.nz/sites/default/files/publications/frm67a-pcck-application-for-a-permit-to-possess-pistol-carbine-conversion-kit.pdf

I suppose that in these COVID-19 blighted times there is small compensation that there will be employment opportunities for many specialist Firearms Law Consultants to guide both the public and the Police employees on the correct current interpretation of the hundreds of pages of Amendments to the 1983 Firearms Act so far added by Tranche I and Tranche II by Police Minister Nash.

Please get all your whanau & friends to vote at the soon coming ELECTION and impress upon them the importance of PARTY VOTE for act  - the only party committed to reverse this police & Parliamentary firearms insanity.

Charlie Upham - The world's only WW II DOUBLE V.C.

 Scholars apparently still argue as to when World War II started - with the 1931 Japanese invasion of Manchuria? - 1936? - perhaps 1939. - Kiwi Author of  SEARCHING For CHARLIE Tom Scott notes that there is an argument that WW II was actually a continuation of the First World War after a long intermission ..

British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain declared war on Germany 9th September 1939.

New Zealander Captain Charles Hazlitt Upham VC and Bar is the only warrior ever awarded TWO Victoria Crosses For Valour in WW II.


Military historians state that if there was such a thing as natural justice in our world .. Charlie's military record would fully justify the award of some Eight Victoria Crosses.

Charlie Upham was a killer. He was such a killer of German WW II enemy soldiers that when he died .. 49 years later in 1994 aged 86 - the German Association of former Afrika Korps placed a respectful death notice in the NZ Christchurch Press.

Charles Upham Memorial Statue in My Local Town Amberley Hurunui:

Captain Upham had a habit of carrying a pack filled with the grenades he used to attack and destroy enemy machine gun teams.
- His wartime bravery has resulted in some modern opinionated people claiming that Upham was a psychopath.

As a POW his defiant behaviour and repeated escape attempts resulted in his being classed as dangerous with solitary confinement and transfer to Oflag IV-C Colditz.

- However fact shows that civilian Charlie was a peaceful New Zealand farmer.

In today's New Zealand it is likely that he would have had any lawfully owned firearms prohibited and destroyed.

Marty K.

USE YOUR 'PARTY  VOTE' CAREFULLY - as votes for an "Also Ran" Party are redistributed & counted for other successful parties in a NZ Election.

Hi Marty

 

I had met with Charlie Upham on several occasions and he was a hard case but a thoroughly decent bloke.  You will be pleased to know that his grenade bag (made from goatskin) has survived and is in the possession of a Christchurch collector along with some other pieces of his memorabilia.  The bag is roughly the same capacity as a gas mask bag and would have held a dozen grenades easily.  It looks a bit like a leather shopping bag.

 

Charlie came to Cheviot in 1974 to open the Running Boar range and brought his old Springfield .22 5 shot bolt action to fire the opening shots.  He fired 4 shots, 2 in each direction, and scored no hits.  His only comment was “The bloody Germans couldn’t run that fast!”

 

Cheers

Policing CUTS ... Prepared?

 If your home is broken into RIGHT NOW ... do you seriously expect any police action or real interest?

- No? - I well remember that police were organised specifically to keep residents safe - in New Zealand the ARMED POLICE FORCE APF was formed in 1846.


 'Frontline' police workers continue to this day to be dedicated and heroic in their dangerous work of trying to control the nutters in our beautiful land .. but they are seriously handicapped in this work by their warped leadership - that focuses politically led "policies" through a dust-storm of under funding and "ECONOMIC EFFICIENCY".. in other words - COST CUTS.

Police powers are not military ... they are subject to the same criminal laws as are their families & neighbours - so their ongoing employment and pay will be further badly affected by this COVID-19 pandemic.

Have you yet noticed the new phrase THE POST COVID ECONOMY ?

- All of these extra costs and "shut-downs" are likely to end something like a quarter of our business's .. and the rest of us will be left paying for the Billions that we are borrowing in emergency payments.

As Licensed firearms owners we are all hoping to stop further anti-gun laws from emerging - perhaps even dreaming of stopping and reversing Tranche 1 and Tranche 2 that resulted from the BRENTON TARRENT MOSQUE MURDERS.

Prime Minister Ardern wants us to forget and never again mention TARRENT's name - but you'd be wise to remember and use it at every opportunity - otherwise kiwi hunters and shooters will continue to be blamed for what he did on March 15 1999.

Private Security Workers

Who can tell what the future will be like? - but you can guarantee that the essential services of POLICE, HEALTH, EDUCATION, & SOCIAL SERVICE will continue to be increasingly underfunded while the tax burden will get heavier.

Directors of New Zealand's CORPORATIONS and BIG BUSINESS will pull-back their money to keep themselves comfortable in their Head Offices - and expect them to increase their private security staff.

The U S has many insiders expecting a near collapse of society's norms - gun sales and ammunition are rapidly peaking ..

Here in New Zealand we gun owners have a BIG problem - if this Labour Party Government is returned in the coming election they will doubtless continue their emotional attacks on fit & proper firearms owners - but a National Party Government are unlikely to withdraw the recent amendments to the Arms Act. - The one single chance of improving firearms law is if sufficient 'Party Votes' are registered for the act party who are committed to change & reverse the fiddling stupid law changes. Please vote.

Introducing Dick Casull - Little & Large.

Premier Grade Freedom Arms Model 83 454 Casull

The late Richard J. "Dick" Casull (February 15, 1931 – May 6, 2018) was a Salt Lake City born gunsmith & Cessna 180 pilot who worked with both Elmer Keith and with P.O Ackley experimenting & developing "Wild-Cat" high powered cartridges.

His best known cartridge is the high pressure - high velocity 454 CASULL cartridge dating from 1957 .. (The cartridge can develop over 60,000 C.U.P.). Mr Casull was 87 years old when cancer finally got him - but he had been a bit of a wild lad and designed / made his first gun when 11 y.o.

454 CASULL Is Bigger In every Way than The Three 'Normal' Magnums.

- But I reckon it's very interesting that Casull in 1978 was also behind developing & building the the Freedom Arms mini revolvers that are made currently by North American Arms in .22" R.F. and .22" WMR.



I got interested in this story because I'm curious about the performance of .22"Magnum (WMR) rounds in handguns ... particularly when fired from very short barrel revolvers. The WMR cartridge is very useful and performs great on small game when fired from a 16 to 18 inch barrel ... but when poked-out of a one or two inch tube as in a mini revolver or derringer - I'm thinking that shooters might better save their money and use a gun chambered in the ordinary cooking "two-two" rim fire ammo.

I've stood next to a long barrelled - six inch - revolver firing WMR and that was unpleasant with muzzle blast and flame. They certainly feel & sound powerful ... but they'd be lucky to be leaving a one inch barrel having accelerated to over 700 foot per second - which is the same as the ordinary NON-MAGNUM rim fire round manages.

There's a chart in this linked story that shows most .22" WMR loadings making only 730 ft/sec from a One Inch barrel -

https://www.shootingillustrated.com/articles/2018/8/23/using-22-magnum-for-self-defense/

Casull's Belt Buckle Revolver

No kidding but these mouse-guns are deadly dangerous to anyone standing in front of their small exits .. just seeing one pointing in your direction will tell you to get out of town - even without hearing one barking to batter your eardrums. - Whereas the .454" Casull is a solid "Grizzly Bear" gun.

Loophole Money Makes The World Go Round ...

 - By taking it out of your pocket ..

Did the New Zealand Government "Buy-Back" your legally owned now PROHIBITED firearms? - Did they use your tax dollars to do that?

Feeling hard-up? .. Likely that you won't be too surprised to learn that over in Britain - where more than 300 people go Bankrupt every day - they now have a National Debt that recently passed 2 TRILLION POUNDS (Roughly speaking that's around 4 Trillion US Dollars). - Funny how they boast about being the world's fifth-biggest economy eh .. but that is before BREXIT has started to affect their trade.

The U S National Debt is over $26 TRILLION 

One Persons Debt Is Another's Wealth

NZ debt is currently only around NZ$58 Billion .... The NZ Dollar buys about US$0.65 so that's around US $38 Billion but rising fast with this Covid-19 Pandemic crippling the economy.

A BILLION is only a thousand million

Whereas a TRILLION is a million Million .. with 12 zeros thus  1,000,000,000,000

These numbers get to be almost meaningless unless you concentrate eh .. especially when you are managing on a state pension.

- There are many mysteries in life ... (like WHO is it keeps turning the ring volume off on my cell phone  (it's not the cat ..) - so few of us proles can work out who are the wealthy lords of the earth that have so much cash that they lend zillions to our Governments and make themselves ever richer on our tax money?

I guess these wealthy dollar-psychos will be the same types who now ruin our public television with five minute Ad-Breaks after every 10 minutes viewing - and also now "own" the countries public electricity system that taxpayers built & paid for .. on the false promise that they would give us cheaper privatised power. - My monthly power charges have more than doubled from $40 a month ten years ago - to $95 every month.

These wealthy corporate psychos actually control our lives ... by twisting our elected governments ... with big "Political Donations" and by helping Ministers to do their jobs with holidays & yacht trips.

loophole is an ambiguity or inadequacy in a system, such as a law or security, which can be used to circumvent or otherwise avoid the purpose, implied or explicitly stated, of the system.

Originally, the word means an arrow-slit, a narrow vertical window in a wall - through which an archer could shoot. - In a loophole, a law addressing a certain issue exists, but can be legally circumvented due to a technical defect in the law.


There are so many "loopholes" in financial laws that you'd need to be naive to think they are accidental or indeed - to think that the lawyers & consultants can't fix them if so instructed by government.

It is these same psycho money hoarders who don't want YOU to own a gun .. They want their own bodyguards and armed private police forces .. Sure.

Our own gun banning prime minister Jacinda Ardern has FOUR armed police guards permanently at her home 

 https://flicense.blogspot.com/2020/02/gun-grabber-pm-ardern-has-four-armed.html

 .. When they finance a regime change in some nation that's got oil or 'rare earth mineral' resources ... they don't want any expensive resistance from the locals.

The right to be armed for self-defence is a basic human RIGHT existing in 'Common Law' - but now denied in New Zealand by our arrogant Police management and by our shifty politicians.

The inside news from Parliament's "Beehive Building" is that if returned to power this regime will introduce a THIRD TRANCHE of gun laws that limits/Bans PISTOL TARGET SHOOTING.

Please USE YOUR PARTY VOTE WISELY.

Time to act  now.

The First Generation "TERRORIST" Glock 17 WAS NOT "The First":

 It really is a funny old world eh .. Just 4% of the worlds population seem to think that THEY ARE THE WHOLE WORLD & whatever they think rules everywhere.

The Glock "First Generation" model typifies how U S models designation can become 'the standard' ... something like "The Big Mac Index" - where the cost of a U S  hamburger is used to measure national economies around the planet (PPP - Purchasing Power Parity).

 .. The U.S. Gun Writers Are WRONG 

The true original 1st Generation Glock 17 did not have any serial number on the bottom of the polymer (Nylon) Frame .. I think a few U S gun writers now recognise that there is a generation prior to 'Gen 1' that they might call the "Austrian Army Model" - but that was actually sold worldwide before Glocks were imported into America.


The original G17 was serial numbered on both the slide and breech of the barrel but did not have the metal insert moulded into the pebble textured frames. Those first models had a smaller diameter barrel than later ones and their magazines did not have the folded steel liners & these bulged when loaded and  did not drop clear when released. - Glock Ges stated that these swollen magazines - that would not eject clear were an intended design feature - but they soon redesigned and re-enforced them to meet American expectations.

"First Generation" Glocks are merely the model that was modified to meet the U S BATFE Import regulations:

Soon after the 1968 Act, what is now the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF), Treasury`s agency with regulatory authority over firearm issues, adopted "Factoring Criteria" to be used to determine whether a given handgun is eligible for importation under 925(d)(3). Under the criteria, a handgun must meet certain "prerequisites" and achieve a sufficient number of points under a "point system" which awards points based upon a handgun`s overall length and height (pistols) or frame length and barrel length (revolvers), weight, caliber, frame construction, safety-related features, and miscellaneous equipment such as target sights and grips.

Despite the "sporting language" in 925(d)(3), BATF`s criteria are in some respects weighted against handguns with well-established sporting credentials. As examples, the fact that a handgun uses .22 caliber ammunition earns it relatively few points, though more target shooting is done with .22 caliber handguns than with those of any other caliber. A pistol receives 10 points for having a double-action trigger mechanism, though single-action pistols dominate many long-established target shooting activities. A pistol receives points for having a target trigger and external hammer, though most .22 caliber pistols designed for target shooting do not possess external hammers.

The real reason that Glock's latest model the G44 is made in Smyrna Georgia is that as a striker-fired .22" rim fire model - it does not score enough points to be imported.

- You know that many leaders and journalists falsely state that America has no firearms restrictions or ownership limitations - whereas there are many gun laws there .. including the Federal Law that forbids any FELON from possessing any cartridge firing gun.

.. Mind you .. these same anti-gun "journalists" & politicians said that Glocks were "ceramic pistols" that were terrorist weapons - undetectable by x-ray.

The first Glocks arrived in USA in early 1986 - but the guns were designed by the Glock factory team in 1980 and replaced the Austrian Military's previous service pistols in 1983-1984.

- There is SO MUCH marketing myth & PR that becomes "fact" that we all need to check what we believe in life.. Colt's Single action Army model M1873 "Peacemaker" was designed by WILLIAM MASON .. 11 years after Samuel Colt died.

America's satellites have for years been lifted into orbit on imported RUSSIAN built rockets - If you don't like what I'm telling you - CHECK OUT THESE THINGS YOURSELF.

Current New Zealand's Firearm's Laws have been altered to cover-up Police and Government failings and are being used to punish law abiding shooters who have proved that they are 'FIT & PROPER'.

How many Politicians or UNLICENSED armed police officers can qualify as 'Fit & Proper'?

Britain Wanted To Test H-BOMBS On NZ Islands:

Trust Your Government? 

 I had wrongly thought that the UK had blasted-off all their Atom Bombs in Western  & Central Australia ... but they also used the Central Pacific MALDEN ISLAND in The Gilbert & Ellice Islands - now known as Kiribati.

Trying to write fact about the Poms nuclear tests gets very confusing very quickly .. partly because of the technical terminology used, - partly because THEY themselves were confused and couldn't seem to get the atom science right ... and partly because the British Government was both lying to the "public" .. and telling a different set of lies to America's leaders - who they were trying to con into sharing their nuclear secrets with the British scientists.

Using their words - if you added Tom (fission) to Dick (fusion-boosted) you might get "Harry" The H-Bomb.

We all know that New Zealand became 'Nuclear Free' over the French 1970's tests in the Pacific .. but did any of us know that the NZ Government had already refused in the 50's to let Mother England use either our southern Antipodes Islands or the northern Kermadec Islands for H-Bomb testing?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Grapple

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malden_Island

... When Australia told Britain to pack-up it's H-Bombs and go elsewhere - they looked to the Pacific ..

"In May 1955, the Minister for Defence, Selwyn Lloyd, concluded that the Kermadec Islands, which lie about 1,000 kilometres (620 mi) northeast of New Zealand, would be suitable.They were part of New Zealand, so Eden wrote to the Prime Minister of New ZealandSidney Holland, to ask for permission to use the islands. Holland refused, fearing an adverse public reaction in the upcoming 1957 general election in New Zealand. Despite reassurances and pressure from the British government, Holland remained firm.."

This was to be Britain's first test of a radiation implosion thermonuclear bomb design. The device, named Green Granite Small, weighed 10,000 lb and used a modified Red Beard primary (called "Tom") and a lead-encased lithium deuteride secondary (called "Dick"). Most of the yield was from the secondary, providing evidence of successful radiation implosion, but the yield was far below the predicted value (about 1 megaton was expected).

Britain's H-Bombs Dropped From Vickers Valient B-1 Nuclear Bombers.

https://nzhistory.govt.nz/politics/nuclear-free-new-zealand/testing-in-the-pacific

https://nuclearweaponarchive.org/Uk/UKTesting.html

  • There are more 'ins & outs' to British nuclear history than around the 'portaloos' at a free pop concert .. especially if you include the CALDER HALL & WINDSCALE cover stories and nuclear accident /fire.
It seems that ALL Governments lie .. But the bigger and more powerful they become - the bigger the lies that they tell.
- Have you surrendered your freshly PROHIBITED sporting rifles & guns that 'Jacinda' blames for the murders by Brenton TARRANT? .. If not you will be treated as a criminal.

Marty K.

.. The phrase "Tom, Dick & Harry" is an example of a TRICOLON ... speaking in threes - which our brains seem to like. - Other examples would be "Lock, Stock & Barrel" and "Cheats, Liars & Politicians".

Weasel Words For Four Minutes

DO YOU TRUST YOUR GOVERNMENT? 

Throughout the period 1953 - 1992 the British public were told that should the Soviets launch a nuclear attack at their once green & pleasant land (where supposedly Jesus visited Glastonbury in some unknown year) .. they were promised by their government that they would get a three or four minute warning of their imminent ending.

- This would have emanated from a Warning Officer at the Home Office's Warning and Monitoring Organization - stationed at RAF High Wycombe. (- I lived close-by for 8 years).

Weasel Words & Empty Promises:

You may be excited to learn that this 'generous' warning would only be made in case of a communist nuclear devastation ... should the explosion(s) emanate from a British or U S capitalist gadget there would be NO WARNING - nor indeed any report of it's nature until later when an appropriate fiction might be created .. Such as when a B-47 bomber crashed on landing and destroyed three Mk-6 fission bombs stored in an 'igloo' bunker at RAF Lakenheath Suffolk in 1956.

RAF Lakenheath is an U S Air Force Base - where control was handed to U S in November 1947.


 
Mk-6 Atom bomb.
3.5 Tons+ each With 5,000 lbs of H.E - plus Uranium - Plus Plutonium

The B-47 bombers had an extensive record of "Broken Arrow" crashes and accidental death during their 30 year service life.

Papers released at the National Archives, - formerly the Public Record Office, reveal that Whitehall wanted to block U S authorities from even ordering evacuations if any of its nuclear weapons fell on the British countryside.
B-47 JATO Assisted Take-off: ... What Ecology?

The record shows that more than 2,000 of these nuclear Stratojets were built & deployed.

- In October 1962 I had annoyed my factory manager by taking a day off work - fully expecting to be vaporised by the US threatened nuclear attack on Russia over the Cuban Missile Crisis. - The Soviets sensibly backed-up and withdrew their missile support for Castro's Cuba - thereby forestalling the need for the British High Wycombe based Warning Officer to pick up his telephone ..


UK's Jodrell Bank Telescope Was Secretly Modified To 
Track Incoming Russian Missiles During The Cuban Crisis.

Relax - you are in safe hands(not) .. as long as all Kiwis have surrendered your prohibited rabbit guns.


Marty K.

P.S. - I've just realised why god created politicians ... it's all to add uncertainty to the issues of Right & Wrong - or Fact versus Lies - as whenever the assoles take the soapbox to promise us what they are going to do next time if we vote for them .. they might (only just) actually do it ..

Time to  act   now.

Use your PARTY Vote.

NZ Industrial-Political-Media COMPLEX

 I was party to a recent discussion involving the 'POWER OF THE PRESS" and how it works for the Governments .. but I reckon that the "Media" is only one influential part of the Corporate Complex that our governments support and feed with our tax money.

NZ Is Something Like U S But Much Smaller

The diagram illustrates how the mutual back scratching flows around (round & round) .. Link:

https://wikispooks.com/wiki/Military-industrial-congressional_complex

POWER - MONEY & Influence or Control work together for their own mutual benefit .. while Voters are fed the stories by media to direct their emotions and attention away from the facts into the desired direction every few years.

You are constantly being manipulated and 'conditioned' by the same marketing & PR techniques that might annoy you with the repeated T.V advertising.

This is a well known psychological technique .. Link

https://yourbusiness.azcentral.com/repetition-advertisement-12532.html

https://smallbusiness.chron.com/repetition-advertisement-technique-24437.html

Even if you don't accept or agree with these persuaders at a conscious level - your subconscious is receptive to repeated inputs. - If you watch it  - hear it - or read it around 10 times ... You've got it.

Anti-Firearms emotion is simple to promote as the majority of peacetime city dwellers will only need to be nudged forward slightly - in line with the sensational thriller fiction violence and and lurid crime reporting on the 6 o'clock news .. "if it bleeds it leads."

You would need to be naive to believe that the first two tranches of anti-gun legislation rushed into New Zealand law following BRENTON TARRANT's white supremacist killings were written then and there .. they certainly were already prepared & polished waiting for the right moment to introduce.

Only time will tell if  'fit & proper Licensed Sporting Shooters' manage to stop the next waiting tranches from surfacing or perhaps even manage to correct the awful & ineffective screeds already passed into New Zealand Law.

Corrupt Government

 If you start with the idea that a country should be run for the benefit of it's population .. you must be disappointed with our world ..

Only the two darkest shades of blue  claim to be "democratic" ..  but policies of even those elected governments have no compulsion to act in the interests of the majority.

There is only one nation in the world that has DIRECT DEMOCRACY - Switzerland - where every policy is decided by voters.

- How can voters here accept their police claiming that ordinary people have no right to self defence using a weapon?

- Take something silly like Television - this wonderful invention used to be great before corrupt governments handed programming control to commercial marketing businesses .. so you can't now watch anything for ten minutes before it is disrupted by five minutes of inane advertising.

.. Getting serious - the basic duty of an elected government is to organise the civil rights of HEALTH CARE - LAW & ORDER - EDUCATION - EMERGENCY SERVICES - SOCIAL WELFARE .. for the people.

Can your management claim that all of these five essentials are fully funded and resourced? .. or are yours all run-down and struggling to cope? - perhaps even becoming privatised and run for profit?

How can any nation that maintains a privileged elite monarchy (with associated aristocrats - 811 in the House of Lords) pretend to be running things for 'The People'? - There are 44 Monarchies:


Even without a monarchy - the top one percent of wealthy Americans own 40% of all of America.

As of 2020, 33 year old Mark Zuckerberg’s (founder of Facebook) net worth is estimated to be OVER 100 Billion - he is quickly catching up to the other CENTI-BILLIONAIRES Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos.

Money Talks: - Like when the privileged parliamentarians decided that they'd blame Licensed Firearms Owners for an Australian Tarrant killing 51 Muslems and horribly injuring 40 more ..

Even more disastrous - when you get brave enough to think about the 

13 THOUSAND nuclear warheads that are held ready to destroy us all & our children - these 13,000 abominations were invented  and built by GOVERNMENTS using our taxes .. 

They were not built or kept at home by licensed firearms users.

"Mustn't complain eh ... They're doing their best."

- The trick seems to be that the elite top layer is allowed to lie to us .. and then PAID by us - and a lot of the poorly educated believe the bullshit that they are fed.

When our New Zealand Government cut funding for the firearms Licensing process and changed the regulations to allow police to give an Australian white supremacist killer Brenton Tarrant his license to kill - They then tried to cover-up by blaming fit & proper Licensed sporting shooters for those murders.

Use your Party Vote carefully .. as The Royal Commission Report will only be released AFTER the Election.

World's Oldest Bronze 'SWORD' - Would Be BANNED In NZ:

This short sword looks more like a dagger to me .. and measures only about 60 cm or 24 inches overall length .. But any bronze replica would be a NZ police banned import 'double edged' weapon for New Zealand.

Tests have found that it is made from an early type of arsenic-copper BRONZE alloy and dates as more than 5,000 years old.

The 'sword' was part of a medieval exhibit in a Venice monastery museum when earlier this year a student noticed that it might be wrongly dated & labelled.


This particular relic comes from the ancient city of Trebizond in Northeastern Turkey.

So there you go - you never know what's around the corner waiting to be found eh.



So the oldest bronze "edged weapon" at 5,000 y.o from Turkey can meet the oldest known hand gun from China - also made from bronze .. that is a mere 732 years old:

Heilongjiang Bronze Hand Cannon From Before 1288

The slow development of ballistic weapons that follows-on from edged flint cutting tools has logically opened the media's doors to neurotic gun-banners who myopically focus on DANGER from portable firearms .. but they might better raise their eyes toward the upper atmosphere above Antarctica - or indeed to beneath our surrounding seas .. where they might observe REAL DANGER from recently developed & deployed nuclear powered cruise nuclear weapons. - try this linked story for illumination;


With such government maniacs running our planet .. it's surprising that the population retains any sanity ..

Killer TARRANT Jail Costs

Australian Mosque Killer BRENTON TARRANT who is overdue for sentencing for the murder of 51 and attempted murder of 40 more is currently expected by NZ's government to cost $3.6 MILLION in extra security facilities.

2019 'Cabinet Papers' state special security measures for the first two years will amount to $3.6 Million.

-  Ongoing Additional specific DAILY cost for his imprisonment is estimated at $4,932 every day.

Judging by the usual 'cost overruns' of government spending projects - I am expecting the actual costs to New Zealand tax payers will be more than DOUBLE that estimate.

It is impossible to balance these ongoing costs against the budget savings our Police Firearms Licensing Section made by sacking the previous efficient teams of testers and interviewers when they "centralised" and went "on-line" with the Firearms Licensing process.

How can anyone measure the awful trauma of these murders and the horrific injuries to hundreds of innocent victims and their families?

Neither Politicians nor Police Management should ever forget the date 
15 March 2019.

This killer's life should be promptly TERMINATED  by the State.

U S & NZ Gun Deaths Compared:

America is often used by the Gun Grabbers as an example of failed gun control .. U S Deaths compared:

Now if you are surprised about U S firearms death numbers approaching motor vehicle fatalities .. you need to note that 60% of gun deaths are SUICIDE - typically by white males with physical health issues - this strongly indicates to me the failings of the US health system in addressing ill health.


The U.S. Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that opioids were involved in more than 47,600 overdose deaths in 2017.

Both Opioids & motor vehicles each kill more U S residents annually than guns.

Now while each death is undoubtedly tragic .. please measure the significance of each of these roughly 40,000 annual losses against the yearly total of 60 Million DEATHS worldwide. 

New Zealand's records average 10 firearms homicides per year, but last year's ROAD DEATHS are 352 - while we average about 125 DROWNINGS every year.
- There were 23 'on farm' deaths of agricultural workers recorded for NZ in the last year.

So our career politicians decided they had to do something about GUNS ..

Time to act now.

Meaningful HOMICIDE RATES:

It's RED PAINT

The homicide rate per 100,000 inhabitants for United Kingdom at 1.20 is approaching double the level of New Zealand @ 0.70.

(New Zealand is 'British' .. The British monarch is still our 'Head of State')

INTENTIONAL HOMICIDE RATES:
per 100.000.

USA  ........    4.96 
Canada ....     1.76
UK ...........    1.20
Australia ....   0.89 
Ireland .....    0.87
NZ ...........    0.70 
Switzerland.  0.59

South Africa 36,49 

Lesotho (Southern Africa)
             ,,,,,  41.26 

- They say that you can prove anything with statistics - so I'll be cautious in what I suggest ... but these figures do not seem to justify the current process of prohibiting firearms ownership here in New Zealand - nor of passing hundreds of pages of new legislation to impede the lawful ownership of sporting & collectable guns by licensed fit and proper persons here.


To me there does not seem to be any direct relationship between the numbers of firearms in a society and it's homicide rate.


The level of murderous intent or violent crimes is likely to be more proportional with how civilised and responsible the national government and jurisdiction authorities are.

According to NZ police figures - only a mere 11 percent of all NZ homicides involved use of a firearm.

_____________________________

New Zealand badly needs to correct & eliminate recent changes to the way our gun licensing rules have been corrupted ... and the previous level of experienced vetting staff needs to be re-established to a standard similar to that existing before Government funding cuts and administrative changes were applied.

That NZ Firearms Licensing System worked well until degraded by management - and needed only small refinement.


Time to act  now.
