Gun Control NZ is here to make sure our politicians listen to the majority who want greater control over guns.
Add your name to the submission on the Arms Legislation Bill to demand stronger gun laws.


Facts about guns in NZ



Million guns

248,764 licensed shooters own an estimated 1.2-1.7 million guns. This is a conservative estimate. We don’t know exactly how many guns there are in New Zealand because they are not registered.



more guns than australians per capita

We own about 6.5 times as many guns per capita as residents of the UK and 2.5 times as many as Australians. An extra 52,000 guns were imported in to New Zealand last year.


7 days

On average, one person dies by gunshot

Of these, 80% are suicides, 13% percent are homicides, 5% are accidents. Ready access to firearms increases the likelihood of suicide.


in the Media

We support properly vetted people being able to own registered rifles and shotguns BUT not semi-automatics.
