Former police ministers ‘impressed’ with Otago gun buyback
Between the utes arriving at Otago’s Taieri Rugby Football Club was a late model car with two former police ministers.
Michael Woodhouse and Anne Tolley decided to visit the first firearms buyback held at the Mosgiel clubrooms – the first in the Southern Police District – on Friday.
The pair were shown the process involved – including how the firearms were made safe – and “were very impressed”, Woodhouse, who is based in Dunedin, said.
Tolley said the pair did not talk to firearms’ owners.
The surrendered weapons included some AR-15s.
The pair urged anyone going to a gun buyback to register first, which would make the process faster.
While there was no specific instructions for MPs attending buybacks, the pair decided to look at the process as they were both former police ministers who happened to have party business in the township on Friday morning.
It’s all about looking good for the cameras with Labour lite. Never mind about the poor law abiding citizens who have been forced by our socialist government and the toadies in opposition, to hand over their legally bought guns. Who in their right minds would consider voting for them?
