Look at these new numbers from the Ministry of Justice:
This is insane.
Our worst offender has 46 separate firearm convictions.
But one also has been found with guns on NINE separate occasions.
No doubt they are back on the streets now – IF they ever left them.
The Kiwi Gun Blog has previously reported the number of offenders who have been repeatedly found to be in the possession of illegal arms.
The Police numbers were only HALF the convictions just provided by the Ministry of Justice.
The Police records go back to 2009
The Justice numbers go back to 1980.
So these numbers could even be worse.
Also these are CONVICTIONS not arrests.
