Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said regulations around who could hold firearm licences would also be tightened to “stop weapons falling into the wrong hands”. Ardern said the March 15 killings, when a gunman opened fire at two Christchurch mosques as worshippers gathered for Friday prayers, had changed attitudes towards gun ownership in New Zealand. “There is a new normal around firearms, it is a change of mindset,” she told reporters. “The most dangerous weapons are being taken out of circulation.”
