  1. This is why Dairy Owners and Operators need to arm themselves.
    As I understand U.N. Treaties that New Zealand signed-on to and became a part of, Chapter Vll, Article 51 gives a nation and it’s INDIVIDUALS the right to defend themselves from bodily harm.
    UN Treaties are said to over-ride local law(s), and has priorities over the same.
    Hence, could it be that ‘outlawing’ semi-autos, pistols, and MSSA-style firearms have been illegal on the government’s part??? We notice that most of the MSSA semi-auto’s we see nowadays are found in events like ‘Operation Cobalt’. This just goes to prove the old Yank adage of ‘If guns were outlawed, only outlaws would have guns.’
    How very true…
    Dairy owners and operators need to go in for a class-action lawsuit against the government that has banned self-defence, an unalienable human right!
    This is based on being UNABLE to protect their life, limb and property, and fear of bodily harm!!
    Need clarification?

    • It’s called crime farming
      In contrast to tax farming
      Interest under the guise and ruse of tax’s
      Pay as You earn
      Sadly the reality sets in as being the Police being the ambulance at the bottom of the cliff
      Being completely reactionary
      Hamstrung by their own inadequacies, deficiencies and failings
      The Masonic Police are there to keep those in power in power
      The Commissioner of Police is chosen politically palatable and makes the right noises
      And who was the Minister of Police?
      It’s not rocket science
