It will be interesting to see how the government reacts to this. I'm guessing there will be something beyond thoughts and prayers.

Are you seriously trying to be offensive about an issue like this right now?

Apparently the Bangladesh Cricket team was at the second mosque and just barely escaped.

I'm so happy for them, but man the survivors guilt will be rough. I'm so devastated by this whole situation.

I read up on their gun laws, they are pretty interesting that's for sure. And you're right, the way they have reacted to past gun events leads me to believe there are about to be sweeping changes made.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_laws_in_New_Zealand

By licensing people who use firearms the legislation seeks to control users behaviour rather than the firearms themselves, since it is the user and not the firearm which posed a potential danger to society. This is intended to mimimise the risk of firearms getting into the wrong hands. Concentrating on users also reduced the administrative burden on police, and allows users to pursue lawful activities without undue restrictions or excessive cost. The system was also intended to be both self-funding and self-regulating as the licensed community could sell among themselves, without the added expense of a State permit and registration system.[9]

While the Arms Act and its associated regulations may seem liberal, they need to be interpreted in the context of police policy, established case law and government policies and the intent of Parliament. In New Zealand, like Australia and the United Kingdom, owning a firearm is seen as a privilege, not a right, and those entrusted with that privilege need to behave in an appropriate manner, or lose the privilege. Consequently, a Firearms Licence can be revoked by police, although due process is required and the revocation can be appealed.

Thorp found various firearms indicator statistics such as suicides and homicide by firearms were similar to those in Australia and Canada, which registered firearms, and markedly lower than the United States, which had a far higher proportion of handgun ownership and higher overall owners of firearms. The slight differences between Australia and New Zealand could not be accounted for by differences in firearms registration policy. Nevertheless, he proposed registering the firearms held by a licence holder at the same time as the licence holder applied for a new firearms licence.
Thank God for our constitution.

Dude was loaded just from what I saw of him in the car at the beginning. I skipped to the middle and watched about 3 seconds and I was done. Absolutely terrible event.

You are correct, I'm way done with that ****. We used to watch faces of death on VHS back in the day, and I've seen some wild **** in my time. Enough honestly.

I don't even like watching people bail hard on skateboards anymore.
