Fingers crossed that our front line police manage to quickly catch the criminal scum that shot at the female officer's car. - NOBODY should have to live with that sort of threat in their life.
I was quite reassured by media news that the Northland Force will be working armed until the 'issue is resolved' .. hopefully those issued with PROHIBITED MSSAs and RESTRICTED Glock pistols will be confident in their training and lawful use.
Of course - the rest of the 180,000 Northland population will not be issued with firearms for their protection from violent attack by these amok criminals ... indeed many of these law-abiding licensed firearms users may have had their lawfully owned property confiscated by Police in recent times.
The Political Focus by Police Management on legal firearms ownership by lawful hunters & target shooters has consumed police resources and millions of Taxpayer's dollars - while leaving the criminals and gang members untouched.
- There is some hope that the new act members of Parliament may be able to redress this regulatory mess in coming months - BUT there remains the urgent need for New Zealand's firearms users to UNITE as one strong movement and to become a voice for reason that will be heard by the establishment ...
