New Zealand Pledges Reforms As Relaxed Gun Laws Scrutinized

According to Reuters, New Zealand's gun laws has been thrown into the spotlight by the killing of 49 people by a shooter rampaging through two Christchurch mosques with an arsenal of high-powered guns..

It has prompted an immediate promise of stricter gun laws from Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, who said that the mosque attacker was a licensed gun owner.

New Zealand’s firearm laws have remained largely unchanged since 1992, though subsequent government reviews have called for reforms.
