Firearm Prohibition Orders to ban gangs and offenders from being around guns

Stuff Report

Police are set to get more powers to help keep guns out of the hands of criminals, gangs and high risk offenders.

Useless Bush

On Monday, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Police Minister Stuart Nash announced new tough gun laws in the form of ‘Firearm Prohibition Orders (FPO)’.

These are orders – that could be issued by either police or judges – that could potentially ban some people from possessing, using, accessing or being around firearms

The Government has released a discussion document and wants input from the public to help shape the rules, and decide who should issue the bans.

“FPOs are aimed at those who have already shown a disregard for the law through prior offending, which may include offending with firearms. They could be a gang member, or part of an extremist ideological group, or a person with a history of family harm,” Nash said.

The consultation document was deliberately broad, Nash said.

It sought to find out the type of previous convictions that could make a person eligible and the extent of police enforcement powers, such as searching people and property without a warrant.

It also wanted feedback on whether police or judges should make decisions about FPOs.

  1. That’s all fine BUT are they going to toss out the crapp laws they have already imposed on law-abiding gun owners or as I suspect they will just add this to their freedom killing property confiscation portfolio?

  3. The gangs will be running scared now!

  4. It should NOT be the police. The police have proved themselves incapable of administering the Arms Act in a fair and proper manner. Only the courts should have this power.

    • I agree Alice. Slippery slope taking away our rights. I used to be in the camp that believed if you don’t break the law you don’t have anything to worry about with the police. I no longer trust the COL or their toady police to not abuse the rights of law abiding NZ’ers.

  5. So, let me see if I get this: if some bureaucrat thinks you’re “unworthy” for, say, wrap yourself on the English flag, or having an opinion on Islam, they can ban you from having guns??
    WHAT CAN POSSIBLY GO WRONG!!!

  6. I can’t see any Aotearoan Government stopping one of the bros from associating with his whanau/hapu/iwi.
    It’s bound to be against some indigenous right somewhere.

  7. I heard Nash describe the type of person that could be subject to one of these, and my first thought was ” Why the fuck is a cunt like that not in jail”…. ( Not Nash). I do worry about human right breaches and how this could be a slippery slope for legitimate gun owners…

  8. Wake up people. The gang reference is a cover story to appeal to emotion.

    They are going to ban people even going to a mates house if they have a firearm and the government does not approve of your political opinions.
