New Zealand's Ban On Assault Rifles Is Now In Effect

Business Insider reports New Zealand's new ban on many types of firearms went into effect on Friday after the government overwhelmingly passed legislation earlier this week to prohibit certain types of guns.

The new legislation comes just 4 weeks after a gunman killed 50 people at two mosques in Christchurch on March 15.

The new law forbids the circulation and use of military-style semi-automatic weapons, assault rifles, and their associated parts.
