You're aware that most of the world would love to be as oppressed as California, right?
I just don't see how this furthers an agenda of more restrictive gun laws, considering that everything on The List is already law in New Zealand.
I guess everything except Universal Registration. But AFAIK, that's never been successfully employed to prevent or solve a crime.
and it still happened. Therefore, further restrictions are required.
They had it here. Scrapped it (expensive to run, and wasn't used to prevent or solve crime) annnnnd they're trying to bring it back.
i just don't understand why some people think that the only thing keeping the guy who wrote that manifesto from killing a bunch of innocent people was his ability to get a gun.
Because it's easier to blame anything than it is to accept that sometimes inexplicably bad shit happens.
In solidarity with Muslims, NZ Jews shut synagogues on Shabbat for first time
Who's debating this in this thread? How about just leave this out of this thread and mourn what is a tragedy in a small country bro
Some people are just fucked in the head.
Very little has been mentioned about the accomplices, and also the car bomb.
I disagree. I think things like distance and commuication without a 'face' make some people completely unattached from tragedies so they feel they can insert unhelpful agendas.
However, there are people - particularly BJJ Kiwi and others here from NZ, and to a lesser degree those like myself (has a NZ spouse and is getting married in NZ) - who do feel somewhat genuinely attached and feel like there's no place for useless debates/comments in threads like these.
It was only this Tarrant fellow who live streamed it hey?? If so, police will probably have to do more investigation in the other accomplices as Tarrant is pretty 'open and shut' (as in, he was on film)
2:15 decides to talk stats of the dead with grieving parents
i feel bad for having watched that.
Still no news on any accomplices eh
just that one guy they picked up was a concerned parent who armed themselves on their way to get their kid from school.
and that one of the men arrested was an 18 yo for "inciting hostilities" or something, but not specifically related to carrying out the crime.
Watched a couple of clips. Did he say subscribe to pewdiepie? Though this was terrible, it could have been much worse if he knew how to actually take a building.
You're attempting reasoning with an islamophobe who's probably celebrating internally.
The problems of Islam or any other religion/ideology are topics for another thread.
Just now watched the live-stream video. Sort of wish I hadn't. That was just brutal.
I can't understand having that much hate in your heart, and having such a disregard for human life.
He's legit trying to hit every point on the "mark me as alt right" bingo card.
I must be getting old. I just had to Google "What is pewdiepie"
Snip removed so I don't have to put you on ice. Cut it out and don't use this thread for trolling. - Splinty.
