Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton joined other Democrats endorsing New Zealand’s gun ban saying it proves how leaders can do more than offer “thoughts and prayers.” 

New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced the ban on semiautomatics following the tragic shooting in Christchurch which left 50 dead. 

Clinton responded with this:

Public servants didn't stop at offering thoughts and prayers. They chose to act.

But the video Clinton tweeted was the one which Ardern admitted law-abiding gun owners would be hard-impacted by the ban.

Arden said compliance is “because it’s about all of us, it’s in the national interest, and it’s about safety.”

Bernie Sanders urged the Trump administration to ban assault weapons following the attack, working it into his campaign trail.

Independent Vermont Senator said there should be “real action to stop gun violence."

Sanders tweeted that the United States should follow the recent actions of New Zealand in banning guns.

“This is what real action to stop gun violence looks like. We must follow New Zealand’s lead, take on the NRA and ban the sale and distribution of assault weapons in the United States,” tweeted Sanders.

Also jumping on the bandwagon was Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) who tweeted:

“In country after country, massacres are followed by sweeping changes to gun laws, as logic would dictate. The United States needs to follow these examples and take action to protect Americans from this deadly public health scourge.”

In her tweet she attached a statement:

Here at home in America, since the 1999 shooting at Columbine High School, we’ve suffered through at least 227 school shootings that killed 143 and left 290 wounded. And those are just shootings at schools. We’ve seen massacres at offices, churches, theaters, concerts, malls — all the places that Americans should feel safe, not threatened.
