Mourning in New Zealand

The response to last week's tragedy in New Zealand has been remarkable. The Prime Minister will not reference the attacker by name and gun law reforms were announced just 3 days after the shootings.

Update

And just 6 days later, semi-automatic weapons have been in New Zealand.

New Zealand is also banning high-capacity magazines and anything that can modify weapons into having a semi-automatic capacity... Ardern announced interim regulatory changes effective immediately.

Not only is the turnaround quick, but it's clear that there's now no place for this type of tragedy to occur in New Zealand. Oh, and it will have been less than a month for this to be have been adopted in law:

What's next: Ardern expects the new gun laws to be fully in place by April 11. The New Zealand government would put in place a gun buyback scheme.
