Today Ali Mau was joined by Chris Cahill from the NZ Police Union to beat up on shooters for Radio Live.

You can listen by clicking the link below:–significant-concern–for-police.html

Mau cant help being utterly ignorant on the topic.

That is when she should get a spokesperson from the shooting fraternity to help her.

Then shut her mouth and learn.

Instead we get:

Mau: “Why would somebody need a semiautomatic weapon anyway?”

Cahill: “Thats the big qustion that we would ask”

Mau: “So we should ban them right?”

No Alison. No we shouldn’t.

Cahill then goes on to call for a ban on semi automatic rifles on behalf of the Police Union. “Like they did in Australia”.

It is like Cahill just gave Mau her talking points.

Not acceptable.
