New Zealand will ban military-style assault rifles in wake of the mosque shooting.
“On 15 March our history changed forever. Now, our laws will too. We are announcing action today on behalf of all New Zealanders to strengthen our gun laws and make our country a safer place…….All semi-automatic weapons used during the terrorist attack on Friday 15 March will be banned…….. I strongly believe that the vast majority of legitimate gun owners in New Zealand will understand that these moves are in the national interest, and will take these changes in their stride.”
New Zealand Prime Minister
