(WELLINGTON, N.Z.) JUST IN: Lawmakers voted 119-1 in favour of banning military-style-automatic-weapons on Wednesday it now goes to the governor for approval and to be granted Royal Assent as soon as Friday #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Apr.11: Members of parliament voted 119 to 1 in favour of the ban on military-style semi-automatic weapons Wednesday, as Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern told lawmakers they were giving “a voice” to those killed in the Christchurch massacre: Once the bill is granted royal assent by the country’s governor-general, it could come into force as law as soon as Friday, TVNZ reported.

The passage of the bill comes just weeks after the March 15 mass shooting at two Christchurch mosques, which Ardern described as “the darkest of days in New Zealand’s history.” ……………….”We are ultimately here because 50 people died, and they do not have a voice,” she told parliament Wednesday. “We in this house are their voice, and today, we have used that voice wisely.”

Ardern also said that a buyback scheme would ensure that gun owners would not lose out financially:

The Australian man accused of carrying out the attack, Brenton Tarrant, 28, was last week formally charged with 50 counts of murder and 39 attempted murder counts: He is due to reappear in court on June 14, after a mental health assessment.
