Agreed. It would be wonderful to see guns removed from those who commit the majority of America's gun crimes and gun murders.

"I struggle to recall any single gunshot wounds," Ardern said. "In every case they spoke of multiple injuries, multiple debilitating injuries that deemed it impossible for them to recover in days, let alone weeks. They will carry disabilities for a lifetime, and that's before you consider the psychological impact. We are here for them."

The whole world stands with the victims and the people of NZ.
