Mongrel Mob leader says members won't hand in their guns

https://nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12217785

Gang members will not be handing in their guns following the law reform announced by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, a Mongrel Mob leader has said.

Sonny Fatu, president of the Waikato branch of the Mongrel Mob, said that, while some members of the gang may have illegal guns, they will not be handing them in as they are necessary to their protection.

"Will gangs get rid of their weapons? No. Because of who we are, we can't guarantee our own safety," he told Stuff.

New Zealand Introduces Gun Control Bill Expected To Become Law Within Weeks

The Arms (Prohibited Firearms, Magazines, and Parts) Amendment Bill, introduced by Nash, would make it illegal to own certain parts that can be used to assemble prohibited weapons. Nash said Monday that the gunman in the Christchurch attacks created military-style weapons from legally purchased semi-automatic guns and high-capacity magazines.

"The loophole that this terrorist used to kill 50 people was totally unacceptable," Nash said, according to The Associated Press. "We're closing that down."

In addition to banning most semi-automatic firearms, the bill also prohibits the sale, import, supply or possession of pump-action shotguns that can be used with detachable magazines or that hold more than five cartridges. It excludes pistols, as well as some guns — "small-calibre rimfire semi-automatic firearms and lesser-capacity shotguns" — often used by farmers and hunters. The measure also provides exemptions for groups such as "bona fide collectors of firearms" and pest controllers.

The bill provides amnesty covering the surrender of firearms, magazines and parts through Sept. 30. Ardern has said the government will create a buyback scheme to compensate owners of banned firearms, a program that could cost up to 200 million New Zealand dollars (around $137 million).

Following reports over the weekend that the New Zealand gang Mongrel Mob would not turn in illegal firearms, Peters said Monday that there would be "consequences" for anyone who did not conform to the law.

"Our message is, yes, you will be handing them back," he said.
