Yesterday we witnessed the murder of innocent people in their chosen place of worship. This horrible act was made possible because of the easy access to semi-automatic weapons in New Zealand. There is no need for anyone apart for the police and army to have these weapons in our country. Hunters and sports shooter do not need these weapons. Weapons like the Ar-15 are designed to kill people and kill them quickly, they have no place in our country. We call on the New Zealand government to immediately ban the sale of all semi-automatic weapons, and to seize or buy back all of the existing weapons of this type in circulation. The risk to innocent people in our country is too great, as was demonstrated yesterday.
