Major changes are happening to our gun laws, a week after the Christchurch mosque shooting.

The government wants a ban on military-style semi-automatic and assault rifles to be in place by April 11.

A sales ban came into effect yesterday. It's 22 years since such a ban was recommended by Sir Thomas Thorpe.

Simon Mount QC worked with him on that report and joins Kathryn to discuss its other recommendations, along with Police Association head Chris Cahill.
