It was suggested to media that Police should raise the minimum age at which a shooter could apply for a firearms license.
The Kiwi Gun Blog asked Police if this idea had been progressed and if so – why it was on their radar at all.
Here is the reply:
Well there we have it.
Just because a Superintendent of Police tells the media that Police should do something – it in no way should be taken as a suggestion that Police should do something or are doing something.
Even when they clearly state that the idea IS indeed part of a review.
Key word in the response here is ‘Currently’.
