New Zealand has decided to reform the gun law within ten days in the country after recent terrorist attack on Mosques in Christchurch. Speaking at a press conference after a cabinet meeting in Wellington, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said reform of gun law is agreed by three coalition partners. Ardern, however, refused to reveal any details of the upcoming reform.
“I intend to give further details of these decisions to the media and the public before cabinet meets again next Monday,” she said at a press conference. “This ultimately means that within 10 days of this horrific act of terrorism we will have announced reforms which will, I believe, make our community safer.”
At least 50 people were killed including citizens of Pakistan and dozens wounded in the deadly terrorist attack on two mosques in New Zealand. On Friday multiple people were killed when a gunman opened fire on two crowded mosques during Friday prayers. Bangladesh cricket team was also in the vicinity of the shooting but all members were safe. Australian Brenton Tarrant, 28, a suspected white supremacist, was charged with murder on Saturday. Tarrant was remanded without a plea and is due back in court on April 5 where police said he was likely to face more charges.
