Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 7 million people who campaign for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all. Our vision is for every person to enjoy all the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights standards. We are independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion and are funded by the individual giving of our supporters.
Amnesty International supports the passing of the Arms (Prohibited Firearms, Magazines and Parts) Amendment Bill. We recommend that the New Zealand Government should establish a more robust system for the regulation of the possession and use of firearms and ammunition.
