In their latest clumsy flailing – our Police have pushed for all upper receivers of the AR15 variant rifles to require a serial number prior to importation. In addition to the lower.
Importers were to have this modification made.
It was quickly pointed out by a shooter’s lawyer that these numbers could then simply be removed on any ‘A’ category rifles after importation – while remaining in complete compliance of the law.
Oh said the Police.
More needless meddling.
More ignorance of the very laws that Police are paid to manage.
The Kiwi Gun Blog has just heard of yet MORE needless legal fumbling being discussed right now.
The pace of attempted changes to the restrictions on shooters has been as relentless as it has been utterly unnecessary.
