Green party Line up should be of concern to hunters

"The Green party have trotted out their line up for the next election and Outdoors people should be very concerned about the make-up of the top 20 candidates who all have a chance of making parliament" says Alan Simmons co leader of the Outdoors Party.
Alan said "that from his observations very few of them have any connections to the real "outdoors" or in fact any involvement apart from their preservationist stance on protecting indigenous wildlife and their thrust for clean water.   The Green ideology classes trout as an introduced species, seeks to surround the country with  marine reserves and exterminate deer and other wild animals.  The ideology from well meaning green academics will see them try and turn New Zealand into a country  quite different to the New Zealand we have grown up with.  The people who actually hunt, fish or just enjoy actively getting into our  mountains  should take a look at the line up on the Greens website and realise a vote for the Greens is shooting themselves in the foot."
"The Outdoors Party http://www.outdoorsparty.co.nz is the real Green Party without the extremes of the Greens and we hope that anyone who enjoys the New Zealand way of Life will support us" said Alan

"13. Gun Control
In order to reduce risks associated with guns and their use in crime, the Green Party
will:
1. Make private ownership of fully functional semi-automatic weapons illegal.
2. Investigate the benefits and costs of a low fee, centralised gun registration
system and database.
3. Reduce the licensing period from ten years to five, in line with practices in the
UK, Australia, and Canada.
4. Review the vetting procedures in the firearms acquisition certificate, to ensure
that they are in line with best practice."

If you read the rest of their justice policy, it basically says "we need to make life easier for criminals" (Not fully, but close enough)

Their gun policy basically says "Screw you, licensed firearms owners".

Thanks for posting that link BTMO, and your summary looks about right to me too.

That policy is dated 2014 (i.e. last election) - is there a more recent one?
David Clendon was a member of the select committee that recently proposed amendments to policy along similar lines (thankfully mostly rejected by Paula Bennett), so I'm guessing it hasn't changed.

sounds very similar to the greens party in australia, but the shooters and fishers party and the SSAA do a very good job of been very vocal when the greens party come out with a lot of bullshit over firearms and hunting in general.we need an outdoor party to do the same
