New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said March 18 she would announce new gun laws “within 10 days” of the March 15 mass shootings in which a lone gunman killed 50 people at two mosques in Christchurch.

Australian Brenton Harrison Tarrant, 28, a suspected white supremacist, appeared in a Christchurch court March 16 on one murder charge. He was remanded without plea and is due back in court April 5, when police said he was likely to face more charges.

“Within 10 days of this horrific act of terrorism we will have announced reforms which will, I believe, make our community safer,” Ardern said at a news conference after her Cabinet reached in principle decisions on gun reform laws in the wake of New Zealand’s worst mass shooting.

In addition to the 50 people killed, dozens were wounded at two mosques in the South Island city during Friday prayers.

Ardern did not detail the new gun laws, but has said she supports a ban on automatic weapons.

The role of social media has also come under the spotlight after the gunman livestreamed his rampage on Facebook. A teenager, whose name cannot be published, appeared in court March 18 charged with distributing that footage. (Reuters, AFP-Jiji)
