Reality wake up call

Well unfortunately this is more ongoing gang drug related violence, happens everyday now and someone will get shot everyday soon in this country. Jacinda’s not to blame her reaction to gun laws was only last year the country is flooded with guns ever since the Vietnam war ended, plus anyone can import them online. Get use to this getting worse. Security fences and gates are the norm now have you got yours yet. The Police have to have guns in the face of this onslaught. Gang members have no moral conscience and don’t care who they kill, maim or terrorise. Two nasty home invasions down here last year both attacked the wrong house. You could be next and may die trying to save yourself and kids.

Well dumpkof2

Jacindas knee jerk law was supposed to stop all these gun incedents would be interesting to know how many guns were handed in by gangs and bad guys. my guess would be zero
