New Zealand is cracking down on law abiding gun owners, and one has already died in a standoff. Stuff NZ reports:
A former Russian soldier who feared going back to prison tried to call his son before dying of a suspected suicide following a three-hour standoff with police.
The family of 54-year-old Troy Dubovskiy told Stuff he was sought by police after his property in the Christchurch suburb of St Martins was searched on Tuesday.
Police acted on information from the public.
Police Commissioner Mike Bush said police found a number of firearms at the property and Dubovskiy, a welder and steel fabricator, was found in the Richmond Park area about 12.30am on Wednesday when his vehicle was stopped.
Gun confiscation is a dangerous affair for all involved, and any confiscation in America could lead to far more deaths, including police officers.
