New Zealand Gangs: ‘No,’ We Won’t Get Rid of Our Guns

The fact that criminals are not giving up their guns is not surprising However the reason why is very interesting.

New Zealand Gangs: ‘No,’ We Won’t Get Rid of Our Guns




When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns.


This truism is on clear display in New Zealand where the leader of a notorious gang said publicly last week that he had no intention of complying with the nation’s proposed, large-scale gun ban.


“Will gangs get rid of their weapons? No. Because of who we are, we can’t guarantee our own safety,” explained Sonny Fatu, the leader of the Waikato branch of the Mongrel Mob, in an interview with Stuff.


“It’s not in our culture to inflict harm on innocent people like what happened in Christchurch,” he continued, referencing the massacre that left 50 people dead. “The attacks between our organizations are gang-on-gang, they do not involve the non-gang members.”


That said, Fatu acknowledged that sometimes there is collateral damage.


“Although there may be peripheral damage and violence that occasionally spills out into the public eye, it is absolutely and without intention for any harm to be caused to non-gang members,” he said.
