Compassion, grit takes 'Jacindamania' to new heights after mosque attack

Compassion, grit takes 'Jacindamania' to new heights after mosque attack

"Although general practice has had a significant addition to their workload because of the ongoing measles outbreak in Canterbury, they should always be your first point of call for non-urgent care - call your normal GP team's number 24/7 and after hours a nurse will advise you what to do and where to go", he said.

Local media reported he was dropped off at the Al Noor mosque on the day of the killings by his mother who survived the attack because she was trying to find a parking space when the gunman launched his assault.

Ardern said she expected new legislation to be in place by April 11. "New Zealand Police regret this error and apologies for any harm caused by the mistake".

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said that "every semi-automatic weapon used in the terrorist attack last Friday will be banned".

"This will not be popular among some of our members but after a week of intense debate and careful consideration by our elected representatives and staff, we believe this is the only practicable solution", Federated Farmers Rural Security spokesman Miles Anderson said in a statement.

"We have spoken with the person incorrectly named on the charging document and apologised", police said.

Thousands of people are expected to come together for an emotional Friday prayer service led by the imam of one of the two New Zealand mosques where 50 worshippers were killed in a white supremacist attack.

"Many of those who will have been directly affected by this shooting may be migrants to New Zealand, they may even be refugees here", Ardern said.

For years, politicians have tried and failed to reform New Zealand's gun laws.

Asked about the people who illegally hold military-style semi-automatic, she said, "we just want the guns back".

Although the exact weapons used in the mosque attacks have not been announced, images posted by the gunman show at least one of them to be a semi-automatic rifle similar to an AR-15 that is widely available in New Zealand.

Ardern said a sales ban was effective immediately to prevent stockpiling and would be followed by a complete ban on the weapons after new laws are rushed through.

The changes exclude two general classes of firearms which are commonly used for hunting, pest control, stock management on farms, and duck shooting: small bore rifles with magazines of no more than 10 rounds, and pump action shotguns holding no more than five rounds.

New Zealand's government will next week also consider tightening licensing rules and ammo restrictions. "If there was a legal right like there is in the United States, this would be much more hard". Restrictions are certainly tighter than in the United States.

Guns are to be handed in and destroyed via a buyback scheme that will cost between Nz$100 million and $200 million (between US$69 million and $139 million), depending on how many are received and their valuations.

"But I don't need a semi-automatic military firearm".
