Gun Grabber Recommends Doing What New Zealand Did

During the 2016 election cycle we heard about the Australian solution, where the nation banned most private ownership of firearms. Of course, somewhere around 70% of citizens did not turn in their guns to this day, and, since there had been no registration beforehand, the government can’t do a damned thing about it

No more ‘thoughts and prayers’ — pass the gun laws America needs

I woke up early Tuesday morning and, as I always do, turned on “Morning Joe,” where the first two hours of the show was devoted solely to the shooting at the Covenant School in Nashville on Monday, March 27. Three adults and three children were gunned down by an individual wielding two AR-style guns and a pistol.

As usual, there were obligatory messages from senators and Congress members — including Republicans — on how tragic it was, and how they were holding the families of those killed in their “thoughts and prayers.” Hearing this, I wanted to scream. They should pass a law that no elected official can use those words about a mass shooting, because it is the height of hypocrisy for any politician to offer “thoughts and prayers” to victims’ families when they know they will not support any changes to stop gun violence.

No real mention of the mental illness from the Nashville shooter, or other wackjob shooters.

This has to end. Don’t tell me that gun laws can’t be changed, when New Zealand had a mass shooting in 2019 and the New Zealand government set out to pass strict gun-control legislation — and did so within six months. New Zealand has not had another mass shooting since. Gun violence there is rare.

We can do this. We must do this. It will take courage on the part of our members of Congress but, truth be told, it shouldn’t require much fortitude because many polls show Americans strongly favor commonsense gun safety laws. If it were up to me, we would pass gun safety laws as strict and comprehensive as those in New Zealand. Weapons of war, such as AR-style firearms and multiple-shot magazines, should be barred forever in America.

New Zealand made private ownership of most semi-automatics illegal. They have a gun registry. They track everything. And the government went full authoritarian the following year over COVID.

But I’m going to make it easy for Congress: Break down the changes we need into smaller increments and pass them, one after another, every six months. Start with what should be the easiest and pledge that by Memorial Day, Congress will pass legislation making multiple-capacity magazines — many of which contain 30, 50 or 100 bullets — illegal in this country. We did it in the 1994 law, making it illegal to possess a magazine with more than 10 bullets.

I’m sure criminals will follow this. Now, listen, there are things we could do. I fully support revamping the background check system to weed out the wackjobs who shouldn’t have a firearm. I have no problem with a 7-14 waiting period, where people could be checked, like with the Nashville trans nutter. I even support requiring some training for first time buyers. I got training voluntarily. A proper red flag system which protects Constitutional Rights and heavily penalizes those filing false reports. And others.

Here’s the problem: Australia. New Zealand. Great Britain. This is the end game. If you give the gun grabbers a little bit they want more and more, because ending most private ownership of firearms Is The Goal. The end game. The powers that be do not care if you, the peasant, are left at the mercy of the criminals who would still be armed

Notice during Jamaal Bowman’s unhinged rant at Thomas Massie that there’s an armed officer in the background. He doesn’t want you to have protection.

I’d also highly recommend the article The Nashville shooter and the forever children who refuse to grow up.

    Mr Teach,

    For every .223 hunting rifle there are 100 .223 AR-15s. When did you last see a mass killer use a .223 hunting rifle? And no, the rifles are not equivalent. I’m surprised the ‘honest’ gun aficionados here don’t point that out to you.

    Mr Teach? Why do the rifles in your photo have so many different dimensions? Look at the triggers and guards. Look at the magazines. Does the hunting rifle take a shorter .223 cartridge than the AR-15? It almost seems as if the photos were altered to make the AR-15 the same size as the hunting .223. Jus’ sayin’.

    Note too the difference in magazine capacity between the two rifles. Is Mr Teach advocating limits on magazine capacity to 3 or 4 rounds? It would actually save lives if killers had to reload more often.

    Regarding the problem of ‘forever children’… there were three 9-yr olds from Nashville who won’t be.

    Representative Bowman’s ‘unhinged’ rant was effective. Children are dying.

      I blame white privilege and transphobla.

    Mr Teach left out some interesting parts of Gov Rendell’s piece:

    …suddenly the screen was filled with a picture of one of the children killed: 9-year-old Hallie Scruggs. She looked so sweet, with her twinkling eyes and curly hair. It was heartbreaking to look at her. It dawned on me that she reminded me of my granddaughter, Rosalind, who just celebrated her ninth birthday last week. Looking at Hallie filled me with enormous sadness and incalculable rage. I can’t imagine what her family and friends — and the families and friends of the others who were killed — might be feeling at that moment. And what about the families of all the children who were killed in this year’s other mass shootings, or the mass shootings that date back to Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, or Columbine High School, 24 years ago this coming April?

    So, to those members of Congress today who are nervous about potentially losing their seats by voting on such a bill (assault weapon ban) again, I suggest this: Take a look at Hallie Scruggs’ photo. Look at her face for 10 minutes, without moving, and you will find the courage to vote for what you know is right.

    But conservative gun nuts don’t want you to think about the actual victims.

    After all: Dead children are a small price to pay for freedom…

      Thank you Nashville P.D.

    we can’t blame all muslims because a few jihadists blow things up.
    why are all gun owners being blamed because of a few mentally ill nut jobs??
    instead of removing guns from law abiding average joe citizens, why do we not
    remove unstable, radicalized, mentally ill deranged people from society?
    could it be because it is easier to identify the gun than to identify the
    psychopath? or because it’s easier to treat the symptom than treat the cause.
    the symptom is gun violence..the cause is not guns, it’s mental illness and a legal system that refuses to enforce the existing laws and treats criminals as spoiled children.

    Because that would require rewmoving all democrats from America. Too big a task.

    I suggest doing what our Forefathers did; back in 1776. It worked out beautifully then; as it will again.

    For the ‘richard’ that suggested that we do as New Zealand did, please go fornicate yourself. Around 250 years ago, our country fought a war against your sovereign and won our freedom. Freedom is one of the most important aspects of our country, even if the progressives [lefties, nazis, socialists, commies, or whatever one calls them] disagree. The RIGHT for the individual citizen to be armed is part of our founding document and principals along with freedom of speech, religion, the press. Again, all even if the ‘progressives’ disagree.
    Dealing with the actual criminal perpetrator is the solution. Arrest them, try them, and, if guilty, jail them. The criminal is the cause. Criminals are criminals and need to be separated from society until it is deemed safe to allow them to reenter. The mentally ill or unstable are “special cases” and need to be dealt with appropriately and protected from harm or causing harm. The ‘Nashville Shooter’ was obviously mentally unstable and should have been identified as such and prevented from obtaining and/or using dangerous arms.
