Future Of Gun Control In Wake Of Muslim Massacre

The second a mass shooting happens anywhere in the world, the leftists jump at the idea of taking guns away from innocent folks.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern declared the country’s “gun laws will change” after a gunman killed 49 and wounded dozens more at two mosques that day before.

“While work is being done as to the chain of events that led to both the holding of this gun license and the possession of these weapons, I can tell you one thing right now: Our gun laws will change,” she said at a press conference.

The suspect had five guns with him during the attack, described by multiple media outlets as “two semi-automatic weapons, two shotguns, and one lever-action firearm.” Semi-automatic refers to a weapon that fires one bullet per trigger pull, but automatically loads and prepares the next bullet. It is often used by the media as a term to make a weapon appear scarier to the public, even though most guns people are familiar with are semi-automatic.

During her press conference, Arden said banning such weapons was “certainly one of the issues that I’m looking at with immediate effect.”

After her press conference, New Zealand Attorney General David Parker promised a crowd at a vigil for the victims of the shooting that the government would ban semi-automatic weapons, according to the New Zealand Herald.

“There is a dimming of enlightenment in many parts of the world,” Parker said. “How can it be right for this atrocity to be filmed by the murderer using a go-pro and live-streamed across the world by social media companies?”

“How can that be right? Who should be held accountable for that?” he added.

The Mosque shooter appears to have modified the weapons used in the attack, in violation of his gun license. The Guardian reports the shooter had a “category-A” which allowed him to purchase firearms without registering them, but the shooter illegally modified them.

“A category-A firearm holder can purchase the firearms without the magazines or the things that will enable them to be in the state that they were,” New Zealand police commissioner Mike Bush told reporters, according to the Guardian.

“As soon as New Zealanders hear that someone was legally able to acquire, as I’m advised, those weapons and carry out this event, that will raise enormous questions with our gun laws, and that is why we will respond swiftly,” Ardern said of the situation at her press conference.

Murder is illegal in New Zealand no matter what the gun laws are.

Neighboring Australia implemented a gun confiscation program, ostensibly referred to as a voluntary “gun buyback” program, in 1996 after a deadly shooting. Residents were mandated to turn in their semi-automatic rifles and other now-outlawed weapons. They would receive money for doing so.

Ardern said at her press conference that she wasn’t ready to support a similar program just yet.

After the press conference, police commissioner Bush told reporters he “was very happy to hear the prime minister’s comments this morning that there will be a change in the gun law, but I can’t say any more than that.”

  1. Americans will NOT sit still for any more Gun Control/Laws.
    Enough is enough! Enforce the laws already on the books!

  2. All because of the 12 sissified twit, fake Republicans who won’t stand up for for those us who will end up with thousands illegal immigrants invading California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. I’m an very old man man and a disabled. veteran. Also a life long Republican. Because of 12 fake Republicans, I will be voting third party in the next election. I will l encourage others to vote third party. The Republicans can KMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The 12 sissified fake Republicans can end up unemployed!

  3. People wake up. Make all the gun laws you want. Stop and think!! These killers are NOT law abiding and could care less about gun laws or any other kind of law.

  4. So they confiscate and destroy all Semi-Automatic Weapons. What will keep the next Looney from killing people with some of those Explosives they said this Guy had in the Trunk of his car? Nobody seems to get to the real problem here , which is – The Perpetrator. People that want to kill somebody will always be able to find or build a weapon , no matter if it is a Ball Bat , Knife , Screwdriver , hammer , Broken piece of Glass , or , as has been shown in the past, another Vehicle. Guns , no matter what their Make or Actions they have, always have to have the Trigger Pulled by a ” FINGER ” belonging to the Shooter. Use your heads people, taking away somebody else’s way of using a gin for ” SELF PROTECTION ” will never solve the Problem caused by the Killer Himself or Herself . DO NOT EVER TAKE AWAY ANOTHER PERSONS OWN RIGHT OF SELF PROTECTION.

  5. Why is it that politicians always go after the gun? It’s because they are lazy by nature! They don’t want to go after the crazed idiot that held that nothing more than a tool to carry out their evil deeds and find out why and then make an example of them to show what happens when you do $hit like this! But no, lets punish those that had nothing whatsoever to do with this type thing and then the media can show the people how fkn great we are in fighting crime! It’s the same $hit we get here of which we are facing in a few days as our dogooders try to convince the people how great they are, even tho they are nothing but traitors bringing tyranny upon us so they can have more control of us, that’s what it’s really about,COMMUNISM AT IT’S FINEST!

  6. Jacinda is dumb!! If you take peoples guns away, the only ones who will have them are the criminals who don’t follow laws. Can Jacinda promise you that the criminals will follow gun laws NOPE! So now when a criminal with a guns attacks the people have no way to defend themselves. I guess when most of the family gets wiped out you can file a lawsuit on Jacinda for not having protection? !!

  7. If they start mandating gun turn in, I suggest they go to the gangs and criminals first and ask them to kindly turn theirs in. ( Not that that will happen.) If they can mandate that, what next? Knives like Great Britain is doing? Then clubs and rocks and slingshots? Get rid of the problem. If you knowingly break the law by doing a crime like this, expect to be taken out and shot or hung or whatever, don’t expect to keep on breathing. If you try and take law abiding citizens’ guns there will be a lot of people hurt.

  8. Criminals do not follow the laws. It is why they are called criminals. Duh. We have laws against murder. assault, and violence of all sorts. We also have a human right to be able to defend ourselves and our lives and the loves others against criminal attacks, even if they come from a tyrannical government. Take guns away from criminals and crazy people. Leave the rest of the sane and law abiding people alone.

  9. The only reason you’ll EVER see him control will be cause the TREASONOUS LIBERALS THAT SIDE WITH THE SUB HUMAN MONGREL MUSLIMS, THE USELESS MUSLIM CONTROLLED U.N. AND THE NAZICRATS THAT WANT TO PREVENT REAL AMERICANS FROM FIGHTING BACK AGAINST THEIR MURDEROUS TYRANNY… And being a Vietnam Veteran, I couldn’t care who likes it but would stand against any and all DemoNazis.

  10. Muslims brought this upon themselves, they should have stayed in their stone age nations, they are savages and potential future terrorists. the shooter was exercising his right to protect his nation from these future terrorists, the Prime Minister is wrong about banning guns, Muslims should be banned instead.

  11. Democrats are the real criminals! They orchestrate these crimes to have an excuse to disarm citizens in order to RULE them without resistance…. liberals are the real terrorists!

  12. The laws in Australia did not help their outcome of violence. All it did was to pay law
    abiding citizens to give up their guns. The bad guys didn’t

  13. WHAT has America to do with this ATTACK….???? NOTHING…..In fact, America was ATTACKED by ISLAMISTS on 9/11, AND now America has even MORE muslims living in America than ever before, thanks to 00bozo……!!!! Makes SENSE..??? I DON’T think so…..NOTHING makes ANY sense anymore…..!!!! Countries who are accepting “muslims” into their countries will have nothing but TROUBLE with THEM because THEY are TROUBLE-MAKERS, just look at the two America has in it’s Congress NOW, besides CRAZY-eyed-brained AOC……!!!!!

  14. NZ is so screwed up, that they won’t even allow our Naval ships in for a port call if they are carrying Nuclear Weapons.

  15. The Muslims have massacred thousands of Americans .These bastards killed the people in California and Orlando FL & so many other states they are a part of the reason we must never give up our Constitutional right .The new Democrat Socialist Party they attack people for wearing a hat they do not like .Make no mistake this new party is out for the White mans blood .If this Country ever tried to take our Guns this Country would be covered with blood .With the Muslims that are in and coming to the United States . They want Sharia law where their big males rape 4 & 5 year old girls .They beat and sometimes kill their wife these are not men they are ANIMALS .

  16. OH, then that means ALLLL of the UNITED STATES population would THEN be in the SAME situation as the poor people in NEW ZEALAND??? OR, do you need to put on your thinking cap like your MOTHER & REALLY think what your mother—now you— really want gun control for….It doesn’t take a Rocket Scientist to see why!! Be sure and have YOUR mother post a list of ALL the people in Congress have guns….AND how many have TALL WALLS surrounding their homes…..NOW do you get it!!??

  17. Since when is New Zeland involved in any way with the US as far aw their laws are concerned. Also remember the Muslims are not oir friends they want to come here and take over the nation. THE ONLY WAY TO COMBAT THESE ATTACKS IS WITH MORE GOOD PRIVATE CITIZENS WHO ARE ARMED. NO IT MIGHT NOT KEEP EVERY ONE FROM GETTING SHOT BUT ARMED CITIZENS CAN REURN FIRE AND STOP THE NUT CASES. BESIDES JUST THE FACT THAT SOME ONE WHO MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN DOING THIS SORT OF THING VERY WELL WOULD NEED TO THINK HGE MIGHT NOT HAVE AN UNARMED GROUP WHICH HE HOPES TO BE LIKE SHOOTING FISH IN A BARREL. . . .THE FISH SHOOT BACK AND THAT ADDS TO THE DANGER OF EITHER NOT BEING SUCCESSFUL OR NO CHANCE TO GET AWAY !

  18. There are more where these came from, some may be good others not so, but for the most part as group they want to subjugate us infidels at the least and anihilate us at the worst.

  19. Lesson to the uninformed:
    A semi-automatic gun fires once each time the TRIGGER IS PULLED.
    In other words, it doesn’t fire all by it’s self! Someone must pull the trigger!
    NO LAW will stop a criminal intent on killing some one.
    They choose guns because they are more effective than knives, bombs, etc.
    I don’t own a gun but if the world gets much crazier I may get one!

  20. Several times in the article it mentions what is always the case and that is the perpetrator doesn’t follow the law. Criminals often don’t follow the law. But, the state, in all it’s wisdom simply writes new laws, after each act of terrorism, and those new laws will not be followed by the criminals, either. Each of these events results in new laws which make it more difficult for upstanding citizens to acquire protection for himself and family. The new laws don’t really affect the criminals, because the criminals don’t usually go to the Sporting Goods Shop to buy a gun. They buy one from the fellow on the corner, who don’t have any rules.
