NZ PM Ardern fails to understand US in terms of gun policy

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said Tuesday she does not understands the unwillingness of United States to advance gun control policies in the country as she has done after a mass shooting at two Christchurch mosques earlier this year in March.

Talking to press ahead of a Paris summit the PM disclosed having plans to meet heads of online social platforms including Twitter and Facebook t discuss their roles in fight against terrorism.

The Christchurch mosques attacker streamlined the massacre live on social media. The PM acted swiftly in banning military-style semi-automatic weapons in New Zealand.

Her ability to handle with such zeal was applauded across the world and many turned towards US wondering why policies are not being worked out even though number of mass shootings is more there.

Ardern added, “Australia experienced a massacre and changed their laws. New Zealand had its experience and changed its laws. To be honest, I do not understand the United States.”

US has continued debating the issue of gun control while guns have continued entering the society. In 2018 gun sales spiked to a significant figure.
