350 shootings in Auckland

The Herald reports:

In a briefing to Police Minister Poto Williams, Assistant Commissioner Richard Chambers noted an increase in gang-related violence in the Counties Manukau police district, with violent clashes linked to tensions between members of the Tribesmen MC and Killer Beez gangs.

Worsening gun violence linked to gang turf wars, illicit drugs and the insidious cancer of organised crime has left more than 350 people with firearms injuries across Auckland in five years.

I’m staggered that there have been (at least) 350 shootings in Auckland.

Maybe the Government should so something like, well, take firearms off gangs.
