    I'm hoping that he used an AR15, that would mute the anti gun people's talking points.

    No it won't. They simply ignore anything that's inconvenient.

    Usually that is one of the first things that the propagandists release. Wonder why that info isn’t out there yet?

    They are CT style laws require a registration of long guns which have "military features".

    It's even more inconvenient that it appeared to be full auto (though that could be attributed to a low rate of the camera).

    Your right, MSM never mentioned this. But I do. My brother in law refused to believe it, until he looked it up.

    from the shooter's manifesto, he is an Aussie and went to NZ to do this. He was prepping for 2 years and guns/explosive do come up. He clearly spells out that it's not about guns, but coming gun bans will further the fracture between right and left.

    So really, anyone who calls for gun control following this should be considered to be supporting this guy's actions. He committed this atrocity with the intent of it creating more calls for gun control.

    left can't fulfill shit if gun owners are not ready to give up their rights. But the trend since 100 years ago was exactly that, people trade rights for security and get boned as a result.

    I don't understand why a kiwi would give such a shit about the political discourse in America. That doesn't make any sense to me. It's also odd that he spells out how his actions in NZ were planned to impact law in the US in the hopes of causing a right v left war.

    Does not compute.

    Dividing and fracturing our society was his goal. The attempt to ban guns is itself all he’s going for. He just wants to watch the world burn, the US first for some reason.

    he traveled the world pretty extensively, so it seems. And it's Aussi, not Kiwi.

    I think it goes beyond that, to extra background/security checks for that 'endorsement' on the license. More like registration + extra checks (like Title II stuff here).

    Of course as we know, that will be completely lost in the "discussion" (of which 90% will be EMO armflapping, braying and whining) and basically ignored. It's going to be "white guy with a gun with killy bits on it we must ban all the guns with killy bits because white guy will misuse" quack quack, mlarc mlarc....

    So that footage was only the first mosque I guess. It didn’t look like 49 dead and dozens wounded, so his stop at the second mosque must have been a big mess too. Was there footage at the second location?

    It doesn't make sense, but if I was going to hazard a guess this is a nutbag racist type that probably believes that the US is the only country on earth where such a broadly defined "race war" etc, could actually happen, because every other country is already too authoritarian for anything like that to really take
    off. We're also the epicenter for media horse shit, so whatever "violence" etc happens is likely to be seen by more of the rest of the world.

    It's pretty sad how even minimal resistance would stop most of these kinds of attacks in their tracks. if 2 people were there even with small handguns we'd probably be talking about a half dozen victims instead of 40+....
