REPORT: New Zealand attorney general backtracks on vow to ban semi-automatics


The verdict may not yet be in on semi-automatic weapons in New Zealand.

The country’s top prosecutor walked back comments about banning the firearms Saturday, just a day after the massacres at two mosques in Christchurch that claimed the lives of 50 people and injured dozens more.

The article goes on to state the following:

Attorney General David Parker had told a crowd at a vigil Saturday that a key part of the government’s response was to ban semi-automatic weapons, a step further than Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern had called for in the wake of the attacks. But Parker told Radio New Zealandon Saturday that the government has yet to make any decision on what changes to gun ownership policies, if any, would look like.

“We need to ban some semi-automatics, perhaps all of them. Those decisions have yet to be taken, but the prime minister has signaled that we are going to look at that issue,” said Parker.
