Wellington: New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Monday said the country’s existing gun laws will be reformed within the next 10 days, adding that her Cabinet has “completely unified” in the decision that comes in the wake of the March 15 shootings that were carried out by a “lone gunman” at two mosques in Christchurch.

The Cabinet met earlier on Monday and made the “in principle” decision about changes to the gun laws in the aftermath of New Zealand’s worst ever terrorist attack that killed 50 people and injured over 45 others, The New Zealand Herald reported.

“As a Cabinet we were absolutely clear, the terror attack on Friday (March 15) was the worst act of terrorism on our shores,” she said. “I strongly believe that the vast majority of gun owners in New Zealand will agree with the sentiment that change needs to occur,” the Prime Minister said.

She has also called on gun owners to surrender their weapons to the police.

“We need to ban some semi-automatics, perhaps all of them. Those decisions have yet to be taken, but the prime minister has signalled that we are going to look at that issue,” New Zealand’s Attorney General David Parker said in an interview.

People of United States of America, a country which has seen more mass shooting incidents than any other nation, applauded the efforts of the New Zealand. In the years between 2011 and 2014 USA saw one mass shooting every 64 days.

In the last year itself, various shootings have taken place; viz. Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, Thousand Oaks shooting, Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, Santa Fe High School shooting. 4 school shootings have occurred in 2019 itself, killing one person.
