New Zealand Gun Owners’ Reaction To Coming Gun Ban

BY Herschel Smith
1 month ago

To be sure, there are those who are trying to get semi-automatic long guns before the ban, but these reactions are the most telling.

Some rushed to their trusted online dealers and stores to stock up on semiautomatic assault-style rifles. Others unlocked their secure cabinets, picked up their firearms and turned them in to police stations, no questions asked.

[ … ]

John Hart, a gun owner, said on Twitter that he has given up his AR-15 rifle and ammunition because his “convenience doesn’t outweigh the risk of misuse.”

Don’t worry.  I’m sure the government will protect and care for you.  They’ll show up at any shooting that occurs, and lay out the chalk lines, arrest the guilty, and comfort the grieving.

    Analysis already coming in that the New Zealand mosque may have been staged, i.e. an act of false-flag terrorism. Scott Bennett, Ph.D. – a former U.S. Army intelligence officer, psychological operations specialist and State Dept. Counter-Terrorism consultant, has written an article with forensic analysis worth reading, entitled, “THE NEW ZEALAND SHOOTING: WHAT HAPPENED AND WHY?” (18 March 2019) available various places on the internet.

    In a related development, the New Zealand government is now cracking down hard on anyone found in possession or known to have transmitted video of the incident, which suggests that the powers-that-be in that nation don’t want the footage analyzed independently or by anyone not within their control.

    This is circumstantial evidence, but is highly suggestive that some sort of monkey business is going on. Anytime the authorities clamp down a lid of secrecy on an event it is legitimate cause for speculation and inference.
    If everything is as the authorities claim it is, then why the need for secrecy and the draconian penalties for violating it?

    The time of incidents like these is also highly suspect in that these mass-shooting incidents seem to occur almost with clockwork regularity – and seem to occur precisely when it benefits the gun-control agenda the most.
    Bear in mind too that the various agencies, intelligence services and other government/state actors involved have long histories of black bag ops, skullduggery of various kinds, and dirty tricks in their respective histories. The institutional knowledge to do this sort of thing exists – and there is no reason whatsoever the ruling elites would not use such expertise if it serves their cause.

    Not all conspiracy theories are groundless or the work of crackpots, as much as our deep-state overlords would like us to believe otherwise. False-flag operations are a time-tested staple in the repertoire of states and their personnel, and have been used in the past as well as in the present time.

    The so-called “Gleiwitz Incident,” which occurred on the night of August 31, 1939, was the trip-wire which started the Second World War in the West. German Chancellor and Fuhrer Adolf Hitler wanted an excuse to seize the Danzig Corridor for Germany, which was at that time Polish territory which separated East Prussia from Germany proper. However, the Poles would not provide him with a ready pretext for such action, so it was decided that one would be fabricated for them using a false-flag operation.

    Part of an overall series of planned actions codenamed “Operation Himmler” after the head of the SS-Gestapo, Reichsführer Heinrich Himmler, and under operational control of SS Major (Sturmbannführer) Alfred Naujocks, a team of German operatives & saboteurs dressed in Polish uniforms raided and seized a radio station along the Polish-German frontier at Gleiwitz.

    After broadcasting a short anti-German message in Polish, a number of concentration camp inmates, who had been dressed in Polish uniforms, were killed by lethal injection and then shot-up and disfigured to prevent identification.

    These corpses and other evidence were presented as “proof” of the Polish attack by Hitler in a speech given at the Reichstag the following day – and along with a series of similar incidents (also staged by German intelligence) – ultimately provided Hitler the justification wanted to invade Poland. Sixty Divisions lined up along the frontier burst into Poland in a blitzkrieg, thus starting the War in Europe.

    The substance of the Gleiwitz Incident and others like it are known today chiefly due to the testimony by Alfred Naujocks at the post-war Nuremberg Trials.

    Many historians believe that the Gulf of Tonkin incident (also known as the U.S.S. Maddox incident) of 1964 was manufactured under the orders of the Johnson Administration to serve as a pretext for escalating American involvement in the Vietnam War.

    Much more recently, this time-tested technique has been used by the government of Recep Erdogan of Turkey, when during the mid-2010s in Syria, chemical weapons atrocities were committed by that nation’s intelligence services and then blamed upon the government of Syrian President Assad.

    After a number of independent investigators uncovered irregularities and inconsistencies in the official stories of these events, and confronted Turkish intelligence officials, it was admitted that false-flag attacks had indeed been staged. With a shrug of his shoulders, the Turkish officer said that sometimes operations of this kind work, and some times not. It did not seem to bother him in the slightest that several hundred innocent civilians had died in the staging of this ruse de guerre.

    NZ has been trumpeted as a great destination for those seeking a safe haven from whatever apocalyptic future they envision. I wonder if the coming exclusion of defensive tools – because it won’t stop with just dreaded, evil semi-autos – is making them feel better about their relocation choice, or just hoping no one outside NZ knows about boats…..

    Statement by the Shooter. Read and Consider: Does this show any Contradictions to the apparent Acts, or what the government is Saying about it?

    I Believe that the DESPERATE attempts to Censor this, and the Video that was Posted, is Direct Evidence that either:
    1. The Incident is a government-directed ‘false flag’ attack, to be used for Political Gain (i.e. ‘gun control’)
    or-
    2. The Incident is one Man’s ‘Get off the Porch’ Moment of rebellion against the (((globalist))) Agenda of turd-world immigration to Destroy White Christian Civilization.
    If it is the Latter, (((they))) are scared shitless that more White People are going to realize what is going on, against them.
