Scale down armed police activities in New Zealand

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!

The NZ govt is using fear, based on the recent Christchurch mass murders to gain support for arming the NZ Police. The NZ Police have made false claims that gun crimes are on the rise in NZ to justify initiating a regular armed squad patrolling the streets of NZ. Overseas evidence - particularly from the US - shows that armed police in the community is an ineffective method of illegal arms control and has no effect on reducing gun crimes.

Recent media reports show that the incidents of armed police attending incidents where no firearms were involved have become a regular occurrence in a country where 95% of the population do not carry firearms for any purpose whatsoever.

It won't be long before innocent youths will be losing their lives to a trigger happy idiot with a badge.
