Next, Tuwhenuroa Natanahira gives us a report on the Law Societies recent submission on gun law reform. Tu touches on the concerns from the Law Society in regards to the seemingly broad convictions that could prohibit a person getting a gun license, the proposed punitive response to illegal gun possession, and how a toy gun could be penalised. 

Finally, Ben Goldson revists Turkey’s Operation Peace Spring where they are occupying Northern Syria. He fills us in on all the recent developments.

Last night, David Seymour’s End of Life Choice Bill was back in Parliament - but not for its third reading. MPs were debating whether to send the bill to a public referendum at the next election, should it enter into force. That’s the result of NZ First promising they would only support the bill at third reading if a referendum is agreed to. Last night’s vote resulted in a close 63-57 vote, with NZ First’s 8 votes proving crucial. Stewart Sowman-Lund spoke to ACT party leader David Seymour to get his thoughts and started by asking him if the vote went the way he thought it would.
