In a bid to combat gang crime, the government is set to introduce firearms prohibition orders, which will prevent certain people from accessing, being around, or using firearms, RNZ reports. Offences leading to a firearms prohibition order (FPO) include participating in an organised crime group or gang, and serious firearms or violence offences. Penalties would depend on which conditions the person had breached.
