Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern announced that all military-style semi-automatic weapons, assault rifles and high-capacity magazines will be banned in New Zealand following deadly shooting that killed 50 people in Christchurch mosques, Wellington, Thursday.
«So I encourage all those who wish to submit to start now. My expectation is that the law will be in place by the end of the... Еще next two-week sitting session, which is by the 11th of April,» added Ardern.
A total of 50 people were killed and another 50 were injured in a mass shooting at two mosques in Christchurch on March 15, in what was New Zealand's worst attack. The main suspect, 28-year-old Australian Brenton Tarrant, appeared in court on March 16 charged with murder.
