On March 15, 2019, Australian Brendan Tarrant, equipped with two semi-automatic rifles and two shotguns, attacked two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, killing 51 people and injuring another 49.

On April 10, 2019, by a vote of 119-1, New Zealand’s House of Representatives passed legislation that outlawed most automatic and semiautomatic weapons, and established a NZ$150 million fund to buy back those weapons.

According to this article in The Guardian, New Zealand has purchased more than 10,000 firearms less than a month after the buy-back program was initiated.

Just sayin’.
