Sorry to hear news like that in your country Jim, sad day indeed.

Kman 03-15-2019 08:04 AM

Now they're saying 49 dead.

Very sorry to hear Jim, visited Christchurch few years back. Nice people, nice city.

Dave Taylor 03-15-2019 08:33 AM

Bad news indeed, Jim.
So sorry to hear, my heart and prayers go out to all those affected.

Careful..... THIS may be a bit graphic.

John Bridge 03-15-2019 03:02 PM

I'm curious to know where an Aussie got an AR-15 in New Zealand.
Anyway, it's a horrible thing. I'm very sorry to hear of it.

John even though we have strict gun laws here once you have a gun licence you can pretty much buy what you want (within reason There are several steps that you have to go through but this guy was a "normal" bloke) , the gun shops are full of them.. https://www.guncity.com/ Turns out the guy lives in my city and was going to attack a Mosque here but decided to commit his terrible crime in Christchurch, He went to the same gym i go to and i have seen him most days that i have been there, nothing about him screamed mass murderer. Unfortunatly as far as punishment goes the most he will get here is life in prison, which usually means 20 years and may only serve half that if you are well behaved. I dont know if he will get to serve the rest of his life behind bars but this guy deserves the death penalty

John Bridge 03-16-2019 08:36 AM

He would be a dead man here. That's for sure. (If they didn't decide he was insane.)

Dave Taylor 03-16-2019 02:19 PM

Probably doesn't have much to do with anything but......
anyone notice the prices of those firearms shown in the link that Jim posted?

cx 03-16-2019 05:28 PM

Those dollars are only worth 69 cents here, though, for comparison.

You notice how many are available with silencers installed, Dave.

Dave Taylor 03-16-2019 10:24 PM

Yes, I did notice the silencers, Kelly.

It seemed to me that either NZ takes hearing health more seriously than the US or that they have special requirements for certain arms used in certain ways.

I was not aware of a 69/100 ratio in the value of dollars twixt NZ and US but even so.... the price of NZ arms to me is still rather amazingly high.

Jim Farrell Tiler 03-16-2019 10:31 PM

everything cost way more here, partly because of the costs of getting it here and also the economy of scale, less sold costs higher

John Bridge 03-17-2019 08:25 AM

Anyway, can you extradite that turd to Texas? We'll take care of him for ya. :)

Jim Farrell Tiler 03-18-2019 11:57 PM

the inevitable is now happening regarding tightening up gun laws and the government talking about banning semi autos and a compulsory buy back of existing gun owners semi autos, the end result will be the good guys give up their guns and the bad guys keep their illegal ones
