Makarau stand-off: Gun club stubborn after court order

A bitter standoff between a gun club and its neighbours could continue for some time yet, with shooters looking at how they can keep going despite a court order to stop. Makarau residents have been lobbying for more than two years to shut down the Auckland Gun Club and claim they've been intimidated - including having a swastika spray-painted on a shed. The club insists it's the victim of an inept city council and, despite its former president yesterday saying it would disband, an insider says that's not the case. Matthew Theunissen reports.
