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’.
