New Zealand Shooting Suspect Identified | NBC News


  1. For the people trying to make this a gun debate

    Why did you choose to use firearms?

    I could have chosen any weapons or means.A TATP filled rental van. Household flour, a method of dispersion and an ignition source.A ballpeen hammer and a wooden shield.Gas,fire,vehicular attacks,plane attacks, any means were available. I had the will and I had the resources.
    I chose firearms for the affect it would have on social discourse, the extra media coverage they would provide and the affect it could have on the politics of United states and thereby the political situation of the world. The US is torn into many factions by its second amendment, along state, social, cultural and, most importantly, racial lines.
    With enough pressure the left wing within the United states will seek to abolish the second amendment, and the right wing within the US will see this as an attack on their very freedom and liberty.
    This attempted abolishment of rights by the left will result in a dramatic polarization of the people in the United States and eventually a fracturing of the US along cultural and racial lines.

  2. I wish they put him in the public place and put fire on him and let him die borne to show others animals like him they don't have a place in this world.

  3. If the people inside the mosque were allowed to own guns they could have saved the lives of a lot of their people. Every person has a right to defend themself that's what the Second Amendment is for in the United States of America regardless if your Christian Muslim Jewish atheist whatever as an American citizen we can never lose the right to keep and bear arms especially at our places of worship where hate can come from any angle people in America have been killed in churches synagogues mosque recruiting centers for the military and our Public Schools. And every one of these places was a gun-free zone including the United States military recruiting centers because the recruiters were not allowed to carry a firearm they were unable to protect themselves from the Muslim man that shot up are recruiting offices back in Tennessee. Wake up people it is everybody's individual right to protect their own life and their families life from any individual who's trying to do harm to innocent people

  4. The White Supremacists and Colonial European powers have been abusing non white people since the 1600's. The U.S African Americans were silenced with a shot gun because of their skin colour.
    This Brenton maggot actually hates all non European peoples…today it would be an attack on Muslims tomorrow it would be an attach on the Asians followed by the Africans…

  5. Why u call me a shooter because he is not Muslim if he was a Muslim so today will blame all the Muslims that Muslim are terrorists and we keep saying that terrorists have no religion he is terrorist call me terrorist not shooter

  6. jews and christian terrorism,boddism terrorism,oranges terrorism all terrorism against of muslims.double standerd of western media and whole worlds non muslims,why do you not say this is jews and christian terrorism of terror

  7. why is msnbc making this man a hero in the eyes of the haters? why must they turn these killers into instant celebs juts to push their anti gun agenda? all they are doing is creating more killers. this needs to stop. and taking our guns is not how it stops.

  8. When non muslims are attacked and killed, Sadiq Khan said terror attacks is part and parcel of big city so non muslims should not be alarmed. The world buries their head in the sand. Brandon Tarront is a Crusader. May the Templars rise to glory once again.
