Simeon Brown: National MP pushes bill to give Police greater powers to tackle gangs

Early Edition with Kate Hawkesby

Giving police greater powers to go after gangs and their guns was racist and would breach human rights including freedom of association, the Waikato Mongrel Mob Kingdom says.The kingdom's public relations liaison Louise Hutchinson had fiery exchanges with National MPs this morning as she appeared before Parliament's justice committee.The committee is considering the Arms (Firearms Prohibition Orders) Amendment Bill (No 2), from National MP Simeon Brown, which would ban gang members from 37 specified gangs from holding a firearms licence.It would also allow the Police Commissioner to make 600-odd gang members - convicted of serious offences - subject to a Firearms Prohibition Order, which would give police greater powers to search them, their vehicles and property for firearms.National MP Simeon Brown told Kate Hawkesby the bill is about ensuring gangs can't be in possessions of firearms, and proposing additional police surveillance powers."We know that gangs cause harm on our streets. Whether its through firearm violence or other means."LISTEN ABOVE
