A number of New Zealanders have voluntarily given up their weapons after a shooting at a Christchurch mosque killed 50 last week, the New Zealand Herald reports. John Hart, a farmer who had a semi-automatic rifle for pest control on his farm, told the newspaper he gave up his gun to the police Monday and designated it “for destruction.” "Once you accept that these things can be harmful, in the wrong hands, the trade-off is a small inconvenience,” Hart told the newspaper. “It's not a big deal not having it anymore. I couldn't, in good conscience, say they shouldn't be around if I still had one.” Fey Hag wrote on Twitter that she had been using guns since the age of nine but turned in her family's weapons to police. “Today I requested that those guns be handed in for destruction,” she wrote. Another Twitter user also said they surrendered their weapon after 31 years of owning a firearm. “This is one of the easiest decisions I have ever made,” they wrote.
