New Zealand PM says 'gun laws will change' after mosque shooting
The New Zealand government is looking at banning semi-automatic weapons following the killing of 49 worshipers at two Christchurch mosques, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said, RT reports.
The primary suspect was an Australian citizen who “travelled sporadically to New Zealand and stayed for varied amount of time,” Ardern told reporters. “I would not describe him as a long-term resident.”
He was not on a government watch list in either New Zealand or Australia.
All of the suspected shooter’s five weapons were legally acquired, according to the PM.
