Gun controls in NZ are clearly not working...

Don't give me this rubbish, NZ is generally a peaceful country and i love the fact guns are hard to obtain. This is the first mass shooting here was 22 years ago.

It's so damn sad. All those incident men, women, and children were killed. This scum bag piece of shit and anyone who helped should suffer a slow and painful death.
If that is a real quote from the senator for Queensland, I'm at a lose of words. The guy who did this supposedly had been planning an attack for 2 years and planned this specific location for 3 months. Unfuckingbelievable.

Are you sure that's real? It just reads so much like the kind of fakes that pop up after things like this.

Wouldn't put it past people though.

Senator Fraser Anning is a terrible individual. It's entirely something he would say.
But a quick google seems to show it is legitimate.

Actually been waiting to see what Pauline Hansons Response is... But I guess she is laying low.

What's their gun control like? 

Successful, just like Australia's.

No guns allowed, very strict rules. I had never seen a real gun in 26 years of living there, didn't see my first gun until I arrived in Australia. 

Yeah well I have to disagree with that other guy. 1 mass shooting doesn't mean gun control doesn't work. For all we know there would be many more without it.

Senator Anning, assuming this is real, complains about cliched nonsense while providing cliched nonsense.

This really is aweful and a shock to everyone here. I had a relative who was in one of the mosques when the shooting started. He was near the front and managed to run away when the shooting started (the shooting started at the back). As part of the muslim community here in NZ, we are still trying to come to grasp with this tragedy.

Frankly i DO have queation about the gun registration systwm in NZ which I feel is lacking. However gun control in NZ is much better than in many other counteies nd the primary use is hunting. 

 

In the case of this shooting, i understand the gun to have been a semi automatic and NOT automatic albeit with illegal clips. With an automatic gun things could have been even worse. So gun control did work to some extent.

When you have leaders like that, you get shooters like this.

NZ is now looking into banning semi automatic rifles.
They are working fast.
They probably don't have a horrible organistation like the NRA over there, atleast not as fanatic.

I think this incident makes the case clear that local organizations are not necessary to drum up hate and fear.  The NRA, Trump, etc...are so global in their scope, scale and reach that they have a direct impact on the machinations of people all over the world.
