Mass shootings at mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand

Tools    





This shouldn't (and won't) become a thread on gun control, but worth noting that quite a few of the mass shootings you see in the U.S. happen in places with significant (or even very strict) gun control. As someone who's not a big gun guy, but knows plenty and has thought and talked about this issue a lot, the one thing I'm sure of is that there is no pat solution.

Well I would point out that this Australian wasn't able to get away with this in Australia so he had to go to a different country that has similar gun laws/ownership as the US.

I'm not sure what you mean by "wasn't able to get away with this." If you just mean that he was an Australia citizen, it doesn't exactly follow.

But the idea that this wasn't possible in Australia isn't mutually exclusive with what I said, anyway, which is simply that the situation is a lot more challenging than just "we should have more gun control," for reasons I've alluded to here and expounded on in great detail elsewhere.
