New Zealand strips citizens of gun rights, Bernie Sanders praises the effort

Dana Mathewson

Urgent Agenda's William Katz believes (as I do) that Bernie Sanders is the most dangerous of the Democrat presidential candidates currently riding in the clown car. This is partly because he has, right now, the second-highest approval rating of that bunch, and the highest of those actually running. Joe Biden's rating is higher, but so far Biden hasn't actually announced.

Bernie Sanders, Dems Praise New Zealand for New Gun Ban, Prove 'Common Sense Gun Reform' Means Confiscation


By: Teresa Mull of Gunpowder Magazine

Presidential hopeful and self-proclaimed Socialist Bernie Sanders joined Democrats last week in cheering New Zealand’s newly enacted gun ban, proving that by "common sense gun reform" they really mean gun confiscation.

"This is what real action to stop gun violence looks like,” Sanders wrote on Twitter. "We must follow New Zealand's lead, take on the NRA and ban the sale and distribution of assault weapons in the United States.”

NRA-ILA reported on New Zealand’s recent action:

On March 21, the New Zealand government issued an order in council that immediately reclassified certain commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms as "military style semi-automatics,” or MSSAs. The order re-defined MSSAs in statute to include the following,

(a) a semi-automatic firearm that is capable of being used in combination with a detachable magazine (other than one designed to hold 0.22-inch or less rimfire cartridges) that is capable of holding more than 5 cartridges:

(b) a semi-automatic firearm that is a shotgun and that is capable of being used in combination with a detachable magazine that is capable of holding more than 5 cartridges.

However, this is a temporary measure. In a statement to the public, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern made clear that the orders in council were a "transitional measure until the wider ban takes effect,” and further legislation is still being drafted.

Ardern noted that there will be "a ban on all military style semi-automatics (MSSA) and assault rifles in New Zealand.” Going further, she noted that, "related parts used to convert these guns into MSSAs are also being banned, along with all high-capacity magazines.”

Others of the Usual Suspects joined Bernie, of course. Read the article to find out if the ones you expected are actually on the list: https://www.gunpowdermagazine.com/bernie-sanders-dems-praise-new-zealand-for-new-gun-ban-confiscation-order/?awt_l=5DZcm&awt_m=hlQFCfaS8XtbXZc
