All military-style semi-automatic weapons, assault rifles and high-capacity magazines will be banned in New Zealand following the mass shootings at two Christchurch mosques that killed 50 people, New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced on Thursday.
"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," Ardern said at a press conference in the capital Wellington.

Why is it that I now find this sort of stuff funny these days?
Their idiotic reaction is so predictable, isn’t it?
They are a sovereign nation and are free to do as they please. And I am free to call them all f—ing idiots.
New Zealand’s whore of a Prime Minister does not understand anything. It’d not the guns, it’s the mindset of the idiots who hang onto every syllable in the blogs and chat rooms.
Yep. And at the end of the day it’s not the US. It’s just the usual liberal western civilization nuttery. It’s why I don’t live there. And having moved from Seattle to Kentucky 8 years ago. I extended the amount of time it will take for this sort of stuff to affect me personally.
And at age 65, I may have put any real impact off until after I die. :)
The main objective.
1) Only if there were guns in the mosque would this have been stopped ASSUMING IT REALLY HAPPENED.
2) 6000 Nigerian Christians were murdered by Islamic fanatics since January 1 and in January, over 20 Catholics were killed and many more injured in an attack on a Catholic Church in the Phillippines.
3) The “terrorist” won.
The total sum of Christians murdered by Muslims has far eclipsed the numbered of Muslims killed by Christian nuts. Terror tactics like that are SO with Islam. Yet hardly a whimper from the press on killings in Nigeria, the Sudan, and Phillipines by these people or attacks in Europe by Muslim immigrants.
Before anyone gets all wistful about New Zealand, remember that it was New Zealand that decide to stage a dockworker's strike for more money as the 1st Marine Division was combat loading their ships for the attack on Guadalcanal. The Marines had to load all their own attack transports and much of the food was destroyed as it sat on docks in the rain.
Here we were, risking our young men's lives to save NZ and Australia from the onrushing Japanese and those clowns risked all of it for more money.
Of course they gave up their guns!
And THIS is why we need a Second Amendment and conservative judges.
New Zealanders can breathe a huge sigh of relief now.....the REAL danger has been stopped:
The way I feel at 60, its just a race to die before the Venezuela style collapse of this country. How inspiring. What a waste of life
Oh, they’re so ‘enlightened’...
don’t tell me...let me guess...NZ’s PM is a woman, yes?
killer got his weapons via internet illegally. So it would be logical to pass laws making importation of weapons a crime on both ends of the transaction and sprucing up customs to find things like rifles and ammo being shipped to home addresses. Instead, every legal gun owner in the country get bonked.
I hate to ask in the middle of a tragedy, but how many guns were stashed in the mosque? anybody bother to check? or is everyone still singing ‘feelings, nothing more than feelings”
Small excerpt of Ardens totalitarian declaration. Its hilarious that she says to legitimate gun-owners, this isnt directed at you. Gee, when you are ordered by the state to turn in your valuable, legally-purchased property and await further word on the pissing amount of compensation you might receive, it probably feels like it is directed at them.
She also said this is just the first step, more to come. Also, how can this be effective immediately without going through parliament? Is this NZs version of an executive order? American liberals are creaming their shorts over this.
Achmed is most pleased with this change.
Muslims 1, New Zealand 0. When your own government won’t protect you against the coming invasions, you will not be happy that it also took away your means of self defense.
Wow, has my opinion on NZ changed for the worse.
Like the EU, they’ll be a muslim(SPIT!) state inside of 20yrs.
