WELLINGTON, NETRALNEWS -- This is probably the darkest day in New Zealand, but New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is actually shining. The youngest female head of government in the world woke up with a nightmare about the victims of the country's most deadly shooting.

When she was told about the shooting that took place in Christchurch, allegedly by a 28-year-old Australian, the 38-year-old Prime Minister became a very calm figure.

The gunman was jailed 36 minutes after police were told about the deadly action. And since then she has continued to communicate with state authorities.

At 9 o'clock in the morning on Saturday (03/16/2019) in New Zealand, Ardern immediately swore from Wellington to immediately tighten the weapons law. "I can tell you now, our weapons law will change," she said.

Ardern was on a flight to Christchurch, and at 1 pm she wore black hijab to meet the grieving Muslim community there.

From Hagley College, one of the locked high schools on Friday (3/15/2019), to the Refugee and Migrant Center in Christchurch, she delivered a message of love and support on behalf of all New Zealanders.

"New Zealand is united in sadness," Ardern said, trying to calm the southern island city which is still staggering from aftershocks caused by a series of earthquakes.

The Sidney Morning Herald reported that at 3:30 a.m., Ardern told the world in detail about the terrible event.

"49 were killed, 39 were still in hospital, 11 were in intensive care. Victims ranged in age, from children, to adults in their 70s. They were mostly men, but there were also women," she said.

Ardern vowed to make sure all citizens and women feel safe. The main message is for the safety of the Cantabria people - the people of Christchurch - especially the Muslim community.

"We want to make sure New Zealanders are safe," she added.

She also told the world the message Ardern kept hearing from survivors of shootings at the mosque.

"This is not New Zealand they know," she added. "This is not New Zealand that we know."

"They are us," she said of the victims shortly after the massacre.

"Many of those affected will become members of our migrant community - New Zealand is their home."

"Sympathy and love for all Muslim communities. People who commit acts of violence have no place here," Ardern added.
