'I don't really need it': New Zealanders set to turn in guns

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

For 14 years, Noel Womersley has worked at "home kill," shooting beasts for small farmers and cutting them up, but tough new gun laws to be adopted after the nation's worst mass murder by a lone gunman will require him to surrender another of his guns.

Womersley, 48, received his first firearm, a .22-caliber rifle, for his 12th birthday, and now hunts with his 15-year-old daughter.

A wide swathe of New Zealand's quarter-million gun owners, who account for about 1.5 million weapons, say they accept there must be change after the tragedy in Christchurch.

As part of a new national firearm buyback scheme, Womersley expects to hand in one military-style AR-15 assault rifle, a type of weapon used in the mosque massacre.

Fifty people were killed and scores wounded, prompting an outpouring of support for the nation's bereaved Muslim community, and a swift crackdown on guns.

The semi-automatics used in the attack will be banned, with exemptions for working hunters, and tougher licensing rules are on the drawing board.
