New Zealand Mosque Shootings Put Focus on Country's Firearms

Most guns do not require registration under New Zealand's Arms Act and police do not know "how many legally or illegally owned firearms there are in New Zealand", according to a police statement a year ago.

Of the four people police apprehended on Friday, one was released ― an innocent bystander who "was just trying to get their kids home", Bush said.

The victims of Friday's shooting included immigrants from Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Indonesia, and Malaysia.

New Zealand's Minister for Pacific Peoples Aupito William Sio said he spoke to one of the Trustees of the Festival last night about the decision, and why it was made. "I can't even go to the mosque now because I am scared of that happening again", the 16-year-old told New Zealand television.

"The regulation of guns in New Zealand is categorised as restrictive", say the authors of the database.

The manifesto also said he chose to make his attack in New Zealand to show that nowhere in the world was safe.

"He always seemed to embody the philosophies of the fitness industry which is that we are inclusive and we accept all shapes of sizes and all fitness abilities and we are here to help and improve and help people", she said.

"In response to the attacks in New Zealand, we have a heightened police presence in the community focusing on places of worship - especially mosques", police said in a statement. The shooter, who had a gun license acquired in November 2017, carried out the killings with two semi-automatic weapons, two shotguns and a lever-action firearm, Ardern said. She asserted that New Zealand "will not and can not be shaken" by this attack. He assured all New Zealanders, and in particular the Muslim community, of his "heartfelt solidarity".

She said the the country's gun laws will be changed and toughened after the attack.

Tarrant had worked as a personal trainer, according to the Australian Broadcasting Company.

Ardern noted the failure of several earlier attempts to reform gun laws and said a ban on semi-automatic weapons would be considered.

In the 74-page manifesto he left behind, Tarrant talks about an "invasion" from India, along with China and Turkey, and defines the three countries as "potential nation enemies in the East". Versions of the video reportedly persisted on the sites for hours after the shootings.

WORLD CONDEMNATION Leaders around the world expressed sorrow and disgust at the attacks, with some deploring the demonization of Muslims.

At Christchurch hospital, where many members of the Muslim community spent Saturday waiting for news of loved ones, members of the public turned up offering auto lifts around town, food parcels and hot drinks, or just a friendly face to talk too. He said he was not a member of any organization, but had donated to and interacted with many nationalist groups, though he acted alone and no group ordered the attack. "1.3 billion Muslims have collectively been blamed for any act of terror".
