We are thrilled to announce we will be hosting a special Guest Speaker Night on the 7th of February at 7:00PM. Note this is in addition to our monthly club night and is a separate event.
Nicole Mckee and David Seymour will be speaking followed by a Q&A session. Firearms will be a key topic of the evening
About Nicole Mckee
"Nicole is a mother of four, has a background in law, and is passionate about firearms reform and freedom of speech. Before entering politics, Nicole ran her own business providing firearms safety training, and is a four-time New Zealand shooting champion.
Nicole was the coordinator of the nation’s volunteer firearms safety instructors for the Mountain Safety Council and the spokesperson for the Council of Licenced Firearms Owners (COLFO) and its Fair and Reasonable Campaign.
In the wake of our nation’s tragedy in Christchurch, Nicole provided the calm and intelligent voice of reason on firearms law. So much so, she was awarded Communicator of the Year 2020."
Nicole has a strong involvement with NZDA and spoke at the National Conference in Hamilton last year.
About David Seymour
"Before politics, David worked as an electrical engineer in New Zealand and for private sector think tanks in Canada. He has served as ACT Leader and MP for Epsom since 2014. In Government, he was responsible for Regulatory Reform and charter schools. From opposition, he passed the End-of-Life Choice Act.
Fearless and principled, he is known for standing up for his constituents and, if necessary, to every other party. He has been named MP of the year twice, and ‘the only one talking sense’ too many times to count."
David has been involved with, and responsible for numerous bills and legislation that have gone through (or are going through) NZ Parliament.
Historically David was the only Member of Parliament to oppose the initial and subsequent Arms Amendment Acts that have been passed through NZ Parliament in 2019, voting the only ‘No’ in a landmark vote of 119 to 1.
David has previously spoken to the NZDA National Conference Delegates and we last had him speak at NZDA Auckland branch in 2019.
We anticipate this will be a sought after night, so please ensure you RSVP so we have an idea of numbers attending.
