At midnight tonight, new zealand’s new gun bill will become law. last night prime minister @jacindaardern spoke at the third reading of the arms amendment act with passion and pride that parliament has been able to pass the bill swiftly.
the final vote came in at 119 for the amendment and one against.
the changes to our gun laws come less than a month after the christchurch terrorist attack on march 15 where 50 people were killed. “i can recall very vividly the moment i knew that we would need to be here, doing what we are doing, right now. i was very early on in a briefing with the commissioner of police, where he described to me the nature of the attack that had occurred in christchurch. i could not fathom how weapons that could cause such destruction and large-scale death, could have been obtained legally in this country. i made a decision after that briefing, that i would go down that day, and without having the chance to question the parliament, know that parliament would be with me, and they were, and again i thank you for that. mr speaker we are ultimately here because fifty people died, and they do not have a voice. we in this house are their voice. and today, mr speaker we have used that voice
wisely." - jacinda ardern

beautiful words from @jacindaardern ♥️♥️
thousands gathered together in hagley park, and around new zealand, to reflect on the 50 victims of the #christchurch terror attack. prime minister jacinda ardern spoke simply moments before the two minutes silence was observed. “according to muslim faith, the prophet mohammed, sallallahu alaihi wasallam said, ‘the believers in their mutual kindness, compassion and sympathy are just like one body. when any part of the body suffers, the whole body feels pain.' new zealand mourns with you. we are one.”
