The Kiwi Gun Blog have previously disproved the ignorant assumption that ‘More guns = more suicides’.

Well, here are the nation’s murder figures for the past ten years:


Here are numbers of license holders per region:


Now as we all understand, this is mainly academic.

Literally 99% of gun crime is committed by those without a gun license.

But even so, these numbers again disprove the ‘more guns = more gun murder’ drivel.

Eastern district has TWICE the gun murders as Southern with HALF the guns.

Counties Manukau has TWICE the gun murders as Canterbury district with almost a third of the guns.

Then again….

With gun crime as low as it is in New Zealand – it is very hard to find ANY pattern.

Look at our major city for the past decade – ONE.
