New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern on U.S. Gun Laws: ‘I Do Not Understand the United States’

‘New Zealand had its experience, and changed its laws’


AMANPOUR: "Well, actually some of your people said, 'You know, we feed half the world. We're hunters.'"              
ARDERN: "And we are, and we will continue to be a food-producing nation that deals with animal welfare issues and so on, and has a practical purpose and use for guns. But you can draw a line and say that does not mean that you need access to military-style semi-automatic weapons and assault rifles. You do not. And New Zealand has by and large absolutely agreed with that position. Australia experienced a massacre and changed their laws. New Zealand had this experience and changed its laws. To be honest with you, I do not understand the United States."
