Gangs, guns crackdown – Govt makes it illegal for ‘high-risk people’ to own firearms

You mean it was all good prior to now for “high risk people” to own firearms???

A new bill to be introduced will involve Firearms Prohibition Orders (FPOs) to combat the “influence of gangs and organised crime to help keep New Zealanders and their families safe”, Police Minister Poto Williams said today.

It follows rising concern about gang violence and illegal firearms, prompted by a spate of incidents including a recent shooting incident outside Auckland’s Sofitel Hotel, believed to involve the Mongols and Head Hunters gangs.
