New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern pledged to change the country’s gun laws during a press conference in Auckland on Saturday morning, following the mass shooting in Christchurch on Friday.
“While work is being done as to the chain of events that led to both the holding of this gun license and the possession of these weapons, I can tell you one thing right now: our gun laws will change,” she said.
Ardern also said she spoke with US President Donald Trump who called to offer his condolences.
She said, “He asked what offer of support the United States could provide, my message was, ‘Sympathy and love for all Muslim communities.'”
A 28-year-old Australian man called Brenton Tarrant was arrested after livestreaming the moment he attacked al Noor mosque and the Islamic Centre, leaving 49 people dead and dozens more injured.
