From the NZFVC

The Government is consulting on whether Firearms Prohibition Orders should be introduced into New Zealand, and if so, what they should look like.

The deadline to make a submission is 13 January 2020.

Firearms Prohibition Orders (FPOs) could prohibit people considered "high risk" from using, accessing, or being around firearms. Breaching the conditions of a Firearms Prohibition Order would be a criminal offence. If established, depending on how broad a scheme was selected, people could be deemed high risk because they have been convicted of serious violence offences, firearms offences, and/or breaches of Protection Orders.
