New Zealand outlines strict new gun controls

The owners of most semi-automatic weapons in New Zealand will be required to surrender their weapons by September, according to details published on Monday.

The New Zealand government’s swift decision to make dramatic changes to gun laws after the deadly Christchurch mosque attacks have received widespread praise, and some criticism.

Policy born of panic or simply a case of a leftist government taking advantage of a crisis to further an anti-freedom agenda. Bit of both I’d say.
