That didn’t take long.
Labour’s rat, Stuart Nash, has gone from promoting the Law and Order Committee’s report to now distancing himself from it.
Despite him being the driving force behind it.
The NZ Herald tried their biased best to cover the issue this week.
Naturally with a picture of a lawful shooter threatening the camera with a gun muzzle.
But then came an interesting quote from Nash:
Committee member Stuart Nash says people need to remember these are merely recommendations.
Labour MP for Napier, and a Committee member, Stuart Nash, says these are recommendations, not laws, and “they are not precursors to laws”.
The Herald report also went on to mention the low percentage of crime involving firearms at just 1.4 per cent of all violent crime.
These comments from Nash come only days after the Police Minister, Paula Bennett, also began to distance herself from the report:
“I have had an initial look at the response from the select committees inquiry into firearms and can already see that a number of recommendations will not be progressed as they are not a priority”.
Keep the pressure on. Its working.
Nash needs to be destroyed come the election.
It wont be hard as he has been desperately seeking relevance. Posting one video on his social media calling for a ‘Get tough on crime’ stance while demanding less people in prisons in another.
In February 2014, Nash was selected as Labour’s candidate for Napier to contest the 2014 general election. A National party name had retired and was succeeded by a lesser known candidate called Walford.
Nash won with a majority of 3,850 votes over Walford.
This is the danger of vote splitting.
