New Zealand bans most semi auto guns 119-1


Old Mossy Horns
After just one mass shooting, New Zealand’s Parliament on Wednesday voted 119-1 to ban most semiautomatic weapons and assault rifles in the country.
“New Zealand stands apart in its widespread availability of weapons of such destructive nature and force,” Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern told Parliament on Wednesday, according to the Guardian. “Today that anomaly ends.”

The only dissenting voice was from the libertarian ACT party, which has one MP.
