New Zealand Gets It Wrong on Weapons Ban

Jordan Kirkland - March 21st, 2019

It's only been a week since an attack on two mosques in New Zealand left 50 dead -- the nation's deadliest massacre in history.

As a response, the country is now banning sales on of “military-style” semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity magazines in an attempt to prevent attacks like this in the future.

New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern made the announcement on Thursday.

"In short, every semi-automatic weapon used in the terrorist attack on Friday will be banned in this country," Ardern said on Thursday.
