The shooter livestreamed his attack...and posted pics of his weapon online. I'm surprised that he could have access to a drum mag. I know NZ's laws are a little less restrictive then AU, but damn...

Once again proves that gun laws do jackshit if someone is determined enough to go full psycho.

Yep, video is pretty brutal. The whole thing was up for awhile. Crazy white Aussie dude, angry about the "Middle Eastern invaders." His manifesto is already making the rounds. Pretty matter-of-fact about his motives. Dig a hole and put him in it.

What a stone cold murderer! The wounded Hijabi woman is laying in the gutter begging for help and he just walks up and blows out her brains, and then drives over her body on the way to the next mosque!

That is fucking atrocious. Absolutely evil. The guy live streamed the massacre on his facebook page FFS.

And he actually survived after murdering 50 innocent people and was arrested.

RIP to the victims and prayers to the injured and their families.

Reminds me of the Anders Breivik massacre, both for the political message and how easy it is for the psycho with no one able to shoot back.

RIP to the innocent.

4 in custody, and 1 a woman. That's probably the strangest thing I'm seeing about the incident. (Not condoning anything)

Oh, and NZ's gun laws are a LOT less restrictive than Australia's. But I'm not sure a drum mag would be legal there. And no, this isn't a commentary on access to firearms causing crimes. 4 people with baseball bats or hire trucks could have caused the same crime.

Horrible. Just sad. There is a special place in hell for this guy who is responsible..
RIP and condolences to the affected families.
Places of worship being hit are just not going to solve anything.

*If* everything attributed to him are correct - he did everything for specific reasons - to basically push every button out there and watch it all burn. <--- *If* that is true, we'll see who falls for it.

RIP

Beyond sad. Attacking innocent people in their places of worship is beyond cowardly.

It amazes me that he shot up one mosque and then drove to another and attacked there as well. It doesn't sound like the first responders were ready for this type of scenario at all.

I hate to see any innocent person killed for any reason. May the fallen Rest In Peace. May the wounded and family members heal

To the wicked... may you rot in your version of hell.

May the dead rest in peace and may the wounded heal quickly and completely.

Fuck the murderer and anyone who sanctions his actions in any way...

I'd rather see him rot in my version of hell. His is probably too genteel

I think we already know who's going to fall for it. They'll willingly and gleefully leap right off the cliff after it.
