New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says details of reforms to NZ's gun laws will be announced within 10 days of Friday's Christchurch mosque terrorist attacks.
Ardern said the Green Party joined meetings today with Labour and NZ First to talk reform of gun laws.
Radio NZ reports that the parties made a unified decision today at Cabinet, but will be testing that this week before committing it to law.
