New Zealand attacks: Debates over gun control

There is renewed debate around New Zealand’s gun laws after the shootings.

New Zealanders will question how someone could have been in a position to legally own weapons of this nature. One of the issues is that the guns that were used in this case appear to have been modified to cause even more harm.

Friday’s attacks are now forcing the New Zealand government to rethink its gun laws.
