As expected, PM Jacinda initiated her semi-automatic firearms ban, but the statistics below contained in an OIA response last December and reproduced on the Police website show why until last Friday there wasn’t an issue.

The next terrorist (and Islamic State have called for an attack in retaliation) will need to obtain an assault rifle illegally, use bombs (the most popular choice for Muslim terrorists overseas) on drones or in a truck, or just use a big truck to mow people down as has happened in overseas cities like Nice, Berlin, Stockholm, Barcelona, London…

Hmm.  Is Jacinda going to fix the real reason last Friday happened — big time security intelligence failure?
