Shane Jones firing a gun banned by his own Government on an overseas holiday is still causing a stir.

Snaps posted by the New Zealand First MP's wife showed him firing the type of rifle allegedly used by the Christchurch gunman.

National justice spokesman Mark Mitchell told Mike Hosking there's no way he'd be caught firing an AR-15.

"Personally, I wouldn't be using one, but at the end of the day Shane Jones is going to have to stand up and take responsibility for his actions."

Police Minister Stuart Nash says he wouldn't fire one either.

But he's questioning why Mitchell won't support gun legislation changes, as Jones does.

"Why won't Mitch support gun reform in the same way Shane Jones has?
