1:25 Gun control: Rachel Stewart on banning assault rifles 

Cabinet ministers will receive an interim briefing this afternoon on potential changes to gun laws as we struggle to come to terms with the horror of Friday's events.

Trade Me has today put a halt on the sale of semi-automatic weapons and parts.

What could these possible changes mean for those who use semi-automatic weapons for pest control or other legitimate reasons? The columnist Rachel Stewart has a firearms license for pest control on the farm. She supports a ban on fully automatic military style assault rifles.
