Not long after 50 people were slaughtered inside a New Zealand mosque, Prime Minister Jacinda Adern announced a ban on “military-style semi-automatic” weapons.
Here’s the scoop:
All military-style semi-automatic weapons, assault rifles and high-capacity magazines will be banned in New Zealand following the mass shootings at two Christchurch mosques that killed 50 people, New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced on Thursday.
“On 15 March our history changed forever. Now our laws will too. We are announcing action today on behalf of all New Zealanders to strengthen our gun laws and make our country a safer place,” Ardern said at a press conference in the capital Wellington.
The announcement came after the country’s cabinet agreed to overhaul the law and ban military-style semi-automatics and assault rifles 72 hours after the Christchurch attacks.
“Every semi-automatic weapon used in the terror attack on Friday will be banned,” Ardern continued, adding that she hoped the law would be in place by April 11. “This legislation will be drafted and introduced in urgency.”
An estimated 1.2 million guns are in circulation in the country, according to New Zealand Police — one for every three people. Ardern said the buyback scheme could cost between $100 million to $200 million.
Enter twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who praised Adern and slammed “thoughts and prayers”…
Under @jacindaardern’s leadership, New Zealand has banned assault rifles and military-style semi-automatic weapons just six days after the Christchurch mosque attacks.
Public servants didn’t stop at offering thoughts and prayers. They chose to act.
Keep it up, Hillary! That should get more Americans in your corner.
While in Norway, Clinton proclaimed to the crowd that the “entire world” has a stake in ousting President Trump from office.
Maybe nobody told Hillary that the economy is booming and minority unemployment is at an all-time low?
How about the fact that constitutionalists are being placed on federal courts?
From American Mirror:
“I’ve said it repeatedly and over and over again, look I am in the camp of people who believe it’s imperative that our country elect a different president,” she said to applause from the Norwegian audience.
“You all have a stake in this,” she added to the foreigners as she said the “entire world” should care about ousting Trump.
Earlier in her remarks, she lamented foreign countries, namely Russia, allegedly working against her.
