Feinstein Wants New Zealand Gun Ban in U.S.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein praised the gun ban recently passed by the New Zealand Parliament and urged that the “U.S. should follow suit.”

Shortly after a March 15 mosque attack in Christchurch that killed over 50 people, New Zealand presented a ban on “military-style semiautomatics” that expanded to included semiautomatic rifles in general, including shotguns.

“I applaud New Zealand on a job well done,” Feinstein tweeted last Friday. “As a country with a gun violence epidemic, the U.S. should follow suit.”
