The shooter uploaded the video and I got a chance to see it. Weapons: Semi auto shotgun (9 rounds and dumped it) and 2 AR-15 pattern rifles; first one went crap on him, he returned to his car parked to the side of the mosque, grabbed the other and returned back inside. Multiple reloads. It looked like there were a couple of incendiary devices in the vehicle, but he did not use them.
I do hope I am wrong, but the casualties are well over thirty. Shooter took the time to try to give everybody a coup de grace.
From first shot to last shot: 5 minutes and 30 seconds. No contact with police, he just drove away.
Holy shit, that was one cold mother fucker and he needs to be taken out.
Please, don’t forget to carry at you place of worship, specially the next couple of weeks. There is always one asshole copycat trying to catch the limelight.
PS: The recommended tactic of “rushing the shooter” was used. It did not bode well for the rusher.
PS 2: New Zealand is pretty much one big Gun Free Zone if I am not mistaken.
Update: I just heard that two mosques were attacked and four people arrested. There is a story behind this which does not fit the norm.
Update: My fear about the number of dead has been confirmed: Toll now is 49.
Also, found an alleged copy of the manifesto. If anything, it seems to confirm Nazis and Socialists do belong in the same fascist shopping cart.
