    Default Christchurch, New Zealand in lockdown after mosque shooting

    Witness: Many dead in New Zealand mosque shooting
    By MARK BAKER and NICK PERRY37 minutes ago

    CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand (AP) — Many people were killed in a mass shooting at a mosque in the New Zealand city of Christchurch on Friday, a witness said. Police have not yet described the scale of the shooting but urged people in central Christchurch to stay indoors.

    Witness Len Peneha said he saw a man dressed in black enter the Masjid Al Noor mosque in central Christchurch at about 1:45 p.m. and then heard dozens of shots, followed by people running from the mosque in terror.

    Peneha, who has lived next door to the mosque for about five years, said the gunman ran out of the mosque, dropped what appeared to be a semi-automatic weapon in Peneha’s driveway, and fled.

    Peneha said he then went into the mosque to try and help.

    “I saw dead people everywhere. There were three in the hallway, at the door leading into the mosque, and people inside the mosque,” he said. “It’s unbelievable nutty. I don’t understand how anyone could do this to these people, to anyone. It’s ridiculous.”

    Thoughts and prayers.
    I hope the people of New Zealand aren't stupid enough sheep to give any ground to the bird brained gun banners because of this. This event was tragic, nevertheless:

    When Australia experienced a mass shooting massacre in Port Arthur, Tasmania, the far right white supremacist Prime Minister John Howard introduced a gun ban in Australia. We have not had any mass shooting massacres in Australia ever since.

    New Zealand will DEFINITELY introduce a similar gun ban after this terrorist attack. 4 far right white supremacists gunned down and KILLED 49 people and injured 48 others. The death toll might even increase.

    This terrorist attack might turn out to be as bad as the Las Vegas terrorist attack. You remember that one? A far right white supremacist trump supporter shot dead 58 people at a music concert and injured dozens more.

    A gun to defend yourself is acceptable - but citizens having assault rifles is NOT.

    they got 3 men and one women they were dressed in camo

    The New Zealand police said four people -- three men and one woman -- were in custody in connection with the mass shooting at both places of worship in the city of Christchurch. The charged male suspect is expected to appear in court Saturday, Police Commissioner Mike Bush told reporters at a news conference. He said the principal suspect was a 28-year-old Australian-born citizen who earlier claimed responsibility for the attacks.

    The average person does not own an assault rifle. Something that looks scary doesn't make it one.

    Do you consider the Ruger Mini 14 an assault rifle?

    I don’t support this generally but I think muslimes should ask themselves what it is they do as a people to bring this upon themselves.

    Given the terrorist acts muslimes have committed over the years it is hard for me to be sad

    Does moon live in New Zealand?

    They got someone. Looks like we aren't the only ones with radical right-wing mass murderers. It will be interesting to see if this country actually does something about it other than the pointless and ineffective "thoughts and prayers."

    Condolences to the victims and their loved ones. What a sad world it can be.

    Funny that you said "thoughts and prayers" are pointless and ineffective and then say "condolences to the victims and loved ones". What a fucking hoot. You are too stupid a cunt to get the irony
