Despite another incident at a central Auckland bar involving a gun – the third within a month – Auckland City Centre Residents’ Group (CCRG) deputy chairperson, Adam Parkinson, said the spate of gun-related incidents was not particularly worrying. Rather, there were ongoing concerns around general gun violence and the “perceptions of safety” on streets in the city centre. Parkinson told RNZ: “People living in the city centre have a wide and robust tolerance to what goes on, but it is our home and like anyone else, we expect to be able to go out onto our streets in safety.”
