As usual Fed Farmers are nit picking the small stuff but otherwise going along with the Govt.  The new FirearmRegn policy is here – despite its failure to impact crime or increase safety in any other country that’s tried this.  But the aim in NZ is to locate all items, then later retrieve them and disarm the people.  Remember, “Register” in legalese means “transfer ownership of,”  hence once you register your car you don’t own it, you have transferred ownership to the State!   (Read the back of the ‘Vehicle change of ownership/registration’ form and see for yourself.  That’s why you only get Registration papers not Ownership-papers for your vehicles!)
