New Zealand Parliament votes to ban semi-automatic weapons

Lawmakers in New Zealand voted almost unanimously on Wednesday to change gun laws. Parliament passed the gun reform bill, the first substantial changes to New Zealand’s gun laws in decades. It must now receive royal assent from the governor general to become a law.

Oh good. Since owning a gun will be illegal in NZ, I'm sure deranged people hell bent on committing mass murder will think twice before going on any homicidal rampages. Because, as we all know, criminals love obeying the law.

Wasn’t there a shooting at the same time where a ‘good guy’ with a gun fended off the ‘bad guy with a gun?

This will definitely take care of the problem. I just don't understand why they don't make killing people illegal...

Good call, Kiwis'! Doing EXACTLY what the terrorist asked for in his manifesto! Not that anyone in your country would know that of course, because anyone who wanted facts over government propaganda deserves 3 years in prison.
