    Glad the NZders don't care about voting and the NRA and all the money gun orgs represent. They care about life. Something the disgraceful administration we have does not. (Only their own).

    New Zealand gun laws - they have background checks for all gun purchases due to the fact that to purchase a gun you must first have a government issued license - and yet liberal media state that New Zealand has lax gun laws. That's because to these liberal media outlets anything short of prohibition and confiscation are lax gun laws.

    The tourist industry has a very lucrative branch, the 'Game Farm', usually a remote wild holding stocked with fenced-in exotic game animals. very private and catering to wealthy and brave trophy hunters who must display a plethora of heads in their homes. Other farms are devoted to 'more sheep than people', but NZ's major industry is really tourism and part of that depends on personal firearms.

    Thank you 'Social Media.'

    Is now the time to talk about it? I believe the NRA would say nay.

    Gun laws are going to change in New Zealand, says the Prime Minister.

    That's what you get when you don't have a head of government that bows down to the whims of a psychopathic organization like the National Rifle Association.

    Why not ban religion which is the obvious catalyst for this event?

    The worst part about this massacre is that Trump when given a softball question about white nationalism punts . We expect our leaders to denounce these madmen in no uncertain terms but as usual I Trump doesnt see the rise in right wing hate crimes as a problem . Well of course he doesn’t because they represent a good portion of his base

    The 2a, like other amendments is not always taken in a entirely literal sense. From the scotus and Justice Scalia.
    the majority opinion, written by conservative bastion Justice Antonin Scalia, states: “Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited…”. It is “…not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.”

    “Nothing in our opinion should be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms insensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.”

    The ADL who tracks all hate crimes says right wing extremism Is responsible for the majority of these horrid attack’s and since Trump was elected there had been a 18% increase

    The shooter is a Psychopath. Trying to rationalize insanity is just as absurd as the agendas of these politically motivated comments.

    Meanwhile Rush, Fox, of course BB, and many others are attempting to blame this on the left.

    The shooter was and is a nihilist. His writings and social media make that clear...right wing yes...nihilist for sure.In this sense he appeals to both the far right and the far left...the very far fringes of each side.

    Who might you ask is one of the leading nihilists in this country? Who has written and spoken about the need to blow up, literally destroy to dust and ash our existing societal, political and social foundations? Whose ideology fits in squarely as he himself has said with leninism?

    Well that would be Steve Bannon. Someone who had the ear, perhaps still has the ear, and sat by the right side of our president...don the con. So when you sit and wonder just what the heck was donnie thinking with some of his outrageous tweets and statements? Think about trump's, Steve's and the loons on the fringes of both sides who all have a disdain for order. Who believe in chaos as providing change. Dangerous times, dangerous people.

    Of course the gun laws will change in NZ. There is no well funded lobby for gun manufacturers there.
