New Zealand Leader Jacinda Ardern said she’s astounded by the US’s inability to pass stricter firearm laws, in spite of the many mass shootings on American soil in the course of the last few decades.
Ardern’s nation prohibited military-style weapons in April, not exactly a month after a shooter opened discharge at two mosques in the city of Christchurch, killing 51 individuals and harming many others.
CNN’s Christiane Amanpour asked Ardern amid a meeting that broadcast Tuesday whether she accepts different nations can gain from New Zealand’s quick reaction to the mass shooting.
New Zealand will proceed “to have a viable use and reason for firearms,” Arden said. “In any case, you can draw a line and state that does not mean you need access to military-style quick firing weapons and strike rifles. You don’t. Furthermore, New Zealanders, all things considered, completely concur with that position.”
“Australia encountered a slaughter and changed their laws,” she included. “New Zealand had its experience and changed its laws. Frankly with you, I don’t comprehend the Unified States.”
The U.S. has encountered more than 100 mass shootings since 1982, and 15 acts of mass violence this year alone, as per Amanpour. It was one of six nations that represented the greater part of overall firearm passings in 2016. (The five others are Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela and Guatemala.)
Yet it keeps on being generally simple for Americans to approach firearms, including AR-15-style rifles, military-style weapons oftentimes utilized in mass shootings.
U.S. legislators face a few obstacles when attempting to pass clearing firearm control enactment. Be that as it may, it’s hard to clarify how Congress could neglect to authorize any important enactment, for example, a restriction on weapons of war, even with mass shootings at a primary school, spots of love, a dance club, an army installation, an open air show and more.
