Tightening New Zealand's gun laws is at the top of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's agenda as she meets her Cabinet on Monday for the first time since the mass shooting in Christchurch that killed dozens of Muslim worshippers.

"We would like to remind people that it is an offense to distribute or possess an objectionable publication (under the Films Videos and Publications Classifications Act 1993), which carries a penalty of imprisonment", local police said in a statement, according to ABC News.

Asked if he held any sense of responsibility, Mr Tipple said: "No, I do not".

Under New Zealand gun laws, A-category weapons can be semi-automatic but limited to seven shots. Because we represent diversity, kindness, compassion, a home for those who share our values, refuge for those who need it.

"But it is clear public sentiment has changed in relation to semi-automatic weapons and we acknowledge that, which is why we're putting this ban in place".

Facebook said it removed 1.5 million videos globally of the New Zealand mosque attack in the first 24 hours after the attack.

Three days after New Zealand's deadliest peacetime shooting politicians promised to change their relaxed gun control laws.

"It did not include a location, it did not include specific details", she said, adding that it was sent to security services within two minutes of receipt.

The Association of New Zealand Advertisers (ANZA) and the Commercial Communications Council called on social media platforms to do more to make sure such horrific scenes are never live-streamed again.

New Zealand, like the United States, also has no requirement for gun owners to register their weapons, unlike many countries in the world.

Currently, New Zealanders are able to surrender their firearms to police at any time.

Rebecca Peters: So the Port Arthur massacre occurred in April 1996 and before it occurred, we used to have actually a mass shooting in Australia about every year, there would be six people, nine people, 12 people killed because our gun laws were not very strong. The event is poised to be the largest anti-racist protest in New Zealand since the 1981 South African rugby tour sparked widespread Apartheid-related protests across the country. The Port Arthur massacre was when a young man with semi-automatic rifles, similar, it appears, to the weapons this guy used in New Zealand, killed 35 people in one day.

Ardern said Sunday she would be looking for answers from Facebook and other social media firms about the attack was livestreamed on their platforms.
