On Monday, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said she and her Cabinet agreed in principle to a set of changes to the country's gun laws that will be unveiled within 10 days. In her news conference, Ardern also announced an investigation into what intelligence and security services "knew or could or should have known" about the plans of a 28-year-old Australian man arrested for killing 50 people and wounding 40 others at two mosques in Christchurch, "including his access to weapons and whether they could have been in a position to prevent the attack." A license is required to purchase a gun in New Zealand, and a Christchurch gun shop said it sold the alleged shooter four guns and ammo legally.
