    Because you have a volunteer army, superseding the need for a civilian militia, the second amendment is obsolete. Please hand in your weapons.

        They are estimating that less than 10% of the banned guns have been turned in.

          It may be a 'volunteer' army, but we have to remember what happened when Hitler gave machine guns to 18-year-olds. It didn't bode well for a good portion of the population.

          If some people see Trump as a wannabe dictator, these people should be pro-2nd-amendment.

            The 2A was never about establishing a militia or National Guard (which wasn't even founded until the 20th century), but to allow the general population to be armed and capable of forming a militia.

                Yup, and are now talking about expanding the deadline in hopes of getting a higher percentage.

                National Party leader Simon Bridges has declared the program to be "a fiasco" whereas the best that the co-founder of Gun Control NZ, Nik Green, can muster is a weak, "it looks a little bit premature to be making judgments about fiascos"

                The very fact that the gun grabbers here are as quiet as church mice about it is indication enough that it isn't going well.
