If More Money Is Needed, That Money Will Be Found

[From the video] It sounds like something a .gov would say, regardless of manifestation.

The owner of one of New Zealand’s largest ammunition companies has warned of a violent revolution if gun owners feel shortchanged by the Government’s gun buyback scheme.

Paul Clark’s company, New Zealand Ammunition, supplies both the Police and the Defence Force. He told RNZ‘s Checkpoint that many gun owners were planning to intentionally skirt the law by hiding their banned weapons.

He was “absolutely sure” that gun owners or organisations would appeal to the courts over the proposed prices of the gun buyback, and he was currently considering taking an action himself.

He said that if gun owners could not access the courts “the only alternative is revolution”.

When asked by host Lisa Owen what he meant by “revolution”, Clark said “Literally, what I just said. What have you got to lose? What other alternatives have you got in life?”

When Owen asked if he was talking about “a physical, violent, uprising,” Clark said it was likely.

“Yes, it could happen,” he said. “People are aggrieved. You’ve been screwed by a government for a crime you didn’t commit. How do you think that makes you feel?”

He said he knew of gun owners who were being radicalised as a result of the gun buyback.

“There’s a lot of pissed off people. It wouldn’t take a lot to set some people off. There’s some pretty heavy, strong, hard feelings out there.”

However, he said he would not go to police with the information he had, because “I didn’t create the problem, someone else did”.

He estimated that he would lose hundreds of thousands of dollars as a result of the gun ban, including orders that he has had to cancel.

On Thursday, Finance Minister Grant Robertson and Police Minister Stuart Nash announced the budget of the gun buyback scheme had been increased to $208 million.

A police price list showed that guns in new or near new condition would get 95 per cent of its base price, guns in used condition would receive 70 per cent of value, and guns in poor condition would see 25 per cent.

“Injury prevention program.”  It all sound so innocuous, yes?  But revolution.  What?

Over money?  A few dollars worth of firearms?  So what is it, my friends and readers in New Zealand?  Is it turn in your weapons, hide them, wait for fair payment, or revolt?

“Injury prevention program.”  Remember those words.  You might hear them again by another slick politician.

    Folks I know are being circumspect.
    I suspect there will be a lot of caches, andthe consequences of too much social media have already been demonstrated. The wise will shut up and shovel.

    It is unlikely there will be any shooting.
    Without protected liberties, there is no way to rally the cause, and no leaders have emerged that would be followed en mass.
    As for logistics, while many households have some degree of preparation for weather & earthquakes, everyone looks to the government to ride in to the rescue.

    Kiwis like to consider themselves independent spirits, but the average bend is towards socialist compliance.

    ALCON,

    Here we go again, more .gov manipulation and deception. This time from New Zealand.

    1. Who will define “condition” ?
    2. Who will determine “value” ?

    Answer: Hehehehehehe….the “public servants” of NZ .gov.

    Hemp and Lead. It is the ONLY solution.

    The “news” out of NZ seems to be very carefully explaining to the people who still believe what it says, that it’s all about the price per firearm, and that it’s not about, no no no dear commie believer, the fact of the criminalization of owners and confiscation of firearms in the first place.

    All news is somebody’s propaganda. Never believe a word the government says, or its outlets, ever.

    Every last one of these traitors to Holy God, needs to be hanged from the neck until dead.

    Call it what it really is, confiscation. You can’t “buy back” something you never owned. Fred: truer words have never been spoken!

    Why would the ammo guy apologize? It already is a Revolution. Grok this hard!

    The inclusive answer, Fred, is that New Zealand is firmly a progressive leftist population.
    A moderate Democrat in the US is considered hard right here.
    Shapiro or Yianolpolis would probably be denied entry if they tried to visit for a speaking engagement, while Clinton and Obama are revered as gods amongst mortals.

    That someone would even Say something like this shows that “Gun Owners are being Radicalized” beyond the usual Idle “Come and Take It” Meme. To My Knowledge, this is the current ‘Closest To Confiscation’ situation out there, and I’m sure a Lot of folks who Won’t be giving away anything but Bullets are making Plans.

    The fact that this individual has ‘Walked Back’ his statement is more likely due to having been Threatened with Arrest for ‘insurrection’ rather than any actual reconsideration of his words.

    It will be Interesting to see if some person(s) go Preemptive on a definite Time/Date of Confiscations beginning, or the Raids start and the Resistance builds from there.

    Funny, the blowhard seems to be going along to get his 30 pieces of silver and “stay in business”…

    When it’s time to bury them, it’s time to put them to use.
    I don’t cars what dollar value is offered. It’s still less than the value to the surviving families of the lives that will be lost by those trying to confiscate should the people say no.

    Those that would try to take them by force need to ask themselves, is it worth dying for?

    If the plan is a divide and conquer, making arrests at unsuspecting times, then the people need to go on the offensive.
