Neighbours wary as Auckland gun club shut down
Guns and meditation don't sound like a happy combination and if you talk to Kaukapakapa locals, they'll tell you it's not. The Vi-passana Centre, a meditation retreat near Kaukapakapa, has been in a bitter fight with the neighbouring Auckland Shooting Club. Locals complain of intimidation and even having their property tagged with swastikas. The dispute looks to have come to an end after the Court of Appeal ruled yesterday the club's been operating without a proper consent.
