New Zealands parliament on Wednesday voted almost unanimously to ban military-style semi-automatic weapons less than a month after 50 people were killed in mass shootings at a pair of mosques in the city of Christchurch.
The ban, which applies to semi-automatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than five rounds, was made permanent Wednesday after being unilaterally implemented by prime minister Jacinda Ardern just six days after the mosque shootings to prevent stockpiling.

Why not ban Mosques instead?
And somehow I think that if a Muslim had shot up 60 Christians in churches this same parliament would decry a rush to judgement.
So 119 out of 120 “feel” better now?
Way to go, announce to China that your Pacific rim country’s population has no access to modern assault weapons.....
The Kiwis should tell the government that they don’t recognize the authority of Nazi pigs.
A country that has surrendered to Islamic cult and to criminals. Disarmed citizens now get what they deserve. Every injury or death is their own fault. Defenseless sheep do not last long.
and the way New Zealand elections work the voters can never get rid of these idiots ,you get 50% of the vote you get 50% of the seats
Soon the Maoris may have a chance to take their country back, unless the Chinese beat them to it.
It’s a lot easier to ban things on small islands, try it in a real country.
Let’s watch and see how successful they are at preventing illegal firearms from being smuggled into their country, that way we will know how a ban like that will work in our country.
That would involve actually defending western civilization, there is no will to do that.
Does that mean the mosques have to give up their AK’s?
An entire Island of undefended white chicks!
Who’s got a good boat?
I’ll bet the 120th voted ‘no’ in protest because the bill didn’t go far enough.
Next, all citizens will be required to get a dashed tattoo on the back of the neck. Make it easier for the headsman!!!
Those who trade their swords for plow shares are ruled by those who didnt!!!
What is a “ military-style semi-automatic weapons” anyway??
Any Kiwis out there correct me if I’m wrong, but NZ never had a second amendment to begin with.
Terrorists everywhere will celebrate this, and then start planning a retaliatory attack there.
These people are voting themselves out of existence.
