GOPUSA.COM April 11, 2019 – On April 10, 2019, New Zealand MPs voted almost unanimously to pass draconian gun control laws in the aftermath of the Christchurch mosque shooting. As a result, “military-style semiautomatic firearms” are now banned.
New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardem stated she would be signing the legislation into law, claiming “these weapons were designed to kill.” The fact is these firearms were designed for civilian recreational shooting, and the original millitary version of these weapons that are fully automatic (true assault rifles) were designed to wound enemy soldiers in war, which tactically is better than killing because they tie up more enemy troops.
The facts surrounding the shooting have also been plagued by
misinformation and deliberate media disinformation. Here is another view based
on facts that have
been hard to extract from the mainstream press.
On March 15, 2019 an Australian man suffering from the mass shooting derangement syndrome undertook a terrorist attack at two Islamic mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, during Friday Prayer. The attack resulted in 50 dead and at least 40 wounded. Although the man has been described as a right-wing, white supremacist by the internationalist and mainstream liberal media, the reality is that the mass shooter could best be categorized as inhabiting the far left of the political spectrum.
The Islamophobic mass shooter described himself as an eco-fascist,
which according to Wikipedia, places him among those who favor “totalitarian
government requiring individuals to sacrifice their own interest to the
‘organic whole of nature’ and which would rely on militarism, expansionism, and
possibly racism to defend the land.”
Obviously, this is far-left totalitarian stuff rather than traditional conservatism or right-wing libertarian philosophy. Two New Zealand nationalist, anti-immigration groups quickly condemned the attack. Nevertheless, MI5 in Great Britain is investigating possible links between the deranged killer and far-right British organizations. [full article]
