New Zealand PM Says Cabinet Has Agreed to Gun Law Reform

New gun laws will make New Zealand safer after mosque massacre, says PM Ardern

New Zealand police have charged 28-year-old Australian Brenton Tarrant with murder, while a second so-far-unnamed 18-year-old man has been charged with inciting violence by distributing footage of the attack.

New Zealand's prime minister has announced there will be new gun law reform in the wake of the mosque shootings in Christchurch that killed 50 people.

Ardern said an inquiry will be held into what intelligence, police, customs and immigration knew or should have known about Tarrant and the events leading up to the massacre, to see whether the terrorist attack could have been prevented.

Police said the airport in the southern city of Dunedin, had been reopened early on Monday after a suspicious item found on the airfield turned out to be a hoax object.

"We believe absolutely there was only one attacker responsible for this", Bush said.

The store used a police-verified online sales and delivery process for the purchases, Tipple said. He is the only person in custody linked to the killings and has been charged with murder.

New Zealand firms are considering whether to pull their advertisements from social media following last Friday's terror attack on two mosques.

The development comes as New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern confirmed there will be changes to New Zealand's gun laws following the massacre.

There's no restriction on the number of guns or quantity of ammunition a licensed gun owner can have and pest control is legally considered a reason to own a military-style semi-automatic weapon.

The store has been criticized for leaving out a roadside advertising billboard that shows a parent helping children with rifle target practice.

Meanwhile, even U.S. politicians are pushing gun control for New Zealand, with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez mocking the idea of "thoughts and prayers" and calling for "policy change" instead.

"We detected nothing extraordinary about this licence holder", Mr Tipple said.

Ardern was joined by Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison in expressing doubts that current rules go far enough.

"I chose firearms for the affect it would have on social discourse, the extra media coverage they would provide and the effect it could have on the politics of United States and thereby the political situation of the world", the manifesto states, according to The Guardian.

"It did not include a location; it didn't include specific details", Ardern said.

Police on Monday said they had executed two search warrants in towns on the New South Wales mid-north coast related to the investigation into the mass shootings.

"He didn't appear to me to be facing any challenges or mental impairment, other than holding fairly extreme views", Peters said, adding Tarrant showed no condolences or regret although the "discussion didn't touch on that" topic. Islamic tradition calls for bodies to be cleansed and buried as soon as possible after death, usually within 24 hours.

Deputy Police Commissioner Wally Haumaha said the first body was approved for release on Sunday night, but the family was yet to take the body because another relative was killed and they wanted to collect them together.
