And from the comments I caught, the Kiwis are not happy about Americans meddling in their internal affairs. That is more than understandable because we told Aussie Rebecca Peters more than once to go eff herself when she was at the UN pushing for the US to do the Gun Ban thing. Also, crapping on their Prime Minister may not have been the smartest thing. Not everybody in the world has a seething hate for their elected leader like US Liberals do.
I wonder who invited them or if they invited themselves.

Well, I somewhat agree with this article’s premise. We (America) shouldn’t meddle with NZ’s policies. As much as I disagree with their Prime Minister’s foolishness, they can do whatever they want with their own country.
The flip side of that coin, however, is that they should shut up and stop trying to kowtow us into changing ours. We’ll never give up our guns and roll over to be slaves like the Kiwis, Aussies, and Brits have.
The citizens aren’t doing it. The government is. No where on the planet does the government represent the people. Including the US. Government’s only purpose is grow and take more power. This decision is by elites, for elites.
Interesting how when they lobby in America, the line is, “Only the police and military should have guns.”
When they lobby in NZ, suddenly the line is, “Not even the police should have guns.”
Also, they hate America so much that they lobby in other countries against “Americanization”.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: If other countries’ cultures and laws are that much more appealing to you, leave. There’s the border, don’t let it hit you in the ass on the way out. There are enough cultures and nations out there that surely one will be more to your liking. No need to wreck this one.
If you don’t want NZ to arm their police officers — if armed police officers make you feel unsafe — instead of lobbying them from here, move there and vote.
Or as Samuel Adams put it: If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.
I have never read that quote before…I am copying and pasting wherever I can. Thank you!
New Zealand gun control groups certainly lobby in America, or castigate American’s for their Second Amendment.

The picture is a crude photoshop manipulation that I gather was first posted on a reddit subthread. The physical location is by David Jones on Lambton Quay.
