New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said on Monday that her cabinet has made an in-principle decision to tighten gun ownership in the aftermath of the Christchurch mosques massacre.
“We have made a decision as a cabinet, we are unified,” said Ardern.
The New Zealand prime minister also announced an inquiry into the mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch on Friday that left 50 people dead.
Ardern said the details are still to be worked out but the changes to the country’s firearms laws will be announced in full within 10 days.
She also said that while the man charged with carrying out the shootings was not a New Zealand citizen, it could not ignore the problem of white supremacy supporters within the country.
