New Zealand to unveil gun law changes in next week: PM Ardern

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern speaks to the media during a Post Cabinet media press conference

"Gun City did not sell him a MSSA - only A-category firearms".

Tightening New Zealand's gun laws is at the top of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's agenda as she meets with her cabinet on Monday.

New Zealand police say they believe only one attacker was responsible for the attacks on two mosques in Christchurch mosque but added that it does not mean there were no other people in support.

Police Commissioner Chris Dawson said Tarrant, 28, travelled "extensively through many countries both in Europe and Asia and around Australia", including a visit to WA six years ago.

While she said details were being worked through, cabinet has been looking at a ban on semi-automatic assault rifles, tighter licensing rules and the issue of modified weapons.

New Zealand's gun laws are under intense scrutiny in the wake of the Christchurch mosque massacres, with the arms dealer who supplied guns to the killer saying he feels no responsibility for the tragedy.

The victims of a terror attack on two Christchurch mosques range in age from 3 to 77 and include at least four women, according to a list being circulated by families of the deceased. He also said that Tarrant did not appear to be mentally unstable and that he has made a decision to represent himself in court.

"The way he presented was rational and someone who was not suffering any mental disability". It has no place in New Zealand.

On Monday, the family was still waiting for the release of Hussein's body.

Ms Ardern's spokesperson said the PM was considering all options, including whether Tarrant would be deported before or after serving a sentence.

On Sunday, the New Zealand government informed online platforms that sharing any version of the footage, even the edited, non-graphic versions, is a violation of the law.

'This rise in hatred.by people who call themselves right-wing, whether smaller groups or through reckless politicians, should not be allowed to continue.

"What happened to our community here will happen to another community", he said.

Delhi said Sunday that five of its nationals were killed, while Pakistan said nine of its citizens were among the dead, including one man who died trying to rush Tarrant. We detected nothing extraordinary about the licence holder.

Around Christchurch, New Zealand and the world there have been vigils, prayers, memorials and messages of solidarity. "On the farm they are a useful tool in some circumstances, but my convenience doesn't outweigh the risk of misuse", John Hart, a farmer and Green Party candidate from Masterton said on Twitter on Monday.

"We don't need these in our country".

"We make checks that will prevent something that will result in an army build up".

"It's only since he traveled overseas I think that that boy has changed completely to the boy we knew", she said.

Facebook said it removed 1.5 million videos globally of the New Zealand mosque attack in the first 24 hours after the attack.

"The first big report came back in 1997 by Justice (Thomas) Thorp and that was in response to a mass-shooting in Aramoana near Dunedin where a man shot down 13 people", Cahill said.

The proposed changes, to be announced at a future date, were spurred by Friday's Christchurch terror attacks, in which a shooter used multiple weapons, including military-style semi-automatic ones, to open fire on worshippers at two mosques, killing 50. Only firearm owners are licensed, not weapons, so there is no monitoring of how many weapons a person may possess.
