A claim the Government is insincere in its approach to reining in gangs.

Jacinda Ardern says she wants to introduce new laws to target them, that are more than token moves. 

She also says she wants to hit gang members' assets.

Act Party Justice spokesperson Nicole McKee told Heather du Plessis-Allan the Government is playing politics.

"Three weeks ago Labour voted down my Bill which would have allowed Police that new threshold to freeze and seize assets upon finding an illegally held firearm in possession of a gang member."
