From Nine To Noon, 9:08 am on 22 October 2015

A university professor is telling police this morning that big changes are needed to the licensing system and registration of guns as 96 percent of weapons in the country are not registered. He says there is also evidence that the fire power of weapons criminals are using is increasing. Alexander Gillespie is a professor of law at the University of Waikato he says the tracking of weapons is far too loose. He is addressing the Police Association's 'In the Firing line' conference.
