Gun show in NZ cancelled over Christchurch attack

New gun laws will make New Zealand safer after mosque massacre, says PM Ardern

New Zealand cabinet agrees on tougher gun laws in principle: PM

Australian Brenton Tarrant, 28, a suspected white supremacist, was charged with murder on Saturday. "That doesn'tmean there weren't possibly otherpeople in support and that continuesto form a very, very important partof our investigation".

Tightening New Zealand's gun laws is at the top of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's agenda as she meets her Cabinet on Monday for the first time since the mass shooting in Christchurch that killed dozens of Muslim worshippers.

"This is an issue that I will look to be discussing directly with Facebook", Ardern said, adding Sandberg has shared condolences over the shootings in Christchurch on Friday.

Meanwhile, police launched a probe into a bomb hoax that forced an hours-long closure of the airport in Dunedin on Sunday, where Tarrant lived.

Facebook says it has deleted more than 1.5 million copies of the video of the mosque attacks in New Zealand in the first day after the incident.

"Jacinda Ardern has said emphatically that New Zealand's gun laws will change and that now is the time for that change", Police Association president Chris Cahill said in a statement online. A government-funded gun buyback and a virtual ban on owning semi-automatic rifles cut private gun ownership by nearly a third.

Following Friday's shooting, the Kiwi Gun Blog Facebook page was flooded with messages fearing responsible gun owners would be unfairly punished.

"Rightly. people are asking the question 'why is it that someone with a firearms licence in New Zealand can obtain a military-style semi-automatic weapon?'" Ardern told Radio NZ.

"Perhaps when the dollars start to go, you'll get a response", he said.
