Christchurch mosque shootings: Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says assault rifles and military-style semi-automatics banned

*does not include .22 or shotgun semi.*

Military-style semi-automatics and assault rifles will be banned under stronger new gun laws announced today.

Jacinda Ardern has just revealed the changes in a press conference.

The country's rules around guns have been in the spotlight since last Friday's mosque shootings in Christchurch.

Attorney-General David Parker said over the weekend that semi-automatic guns would be banned and 70,000 people have signed a petition against these types of weapons.

Today it was revealed that Gun City had sold out of the type of rifle used in the terror attack.
