Common sense gun reform in the wake of a mass shooting? What dark powers does New Zealand wield?

News that we passed a gun control measure here and the Sam Harris derail continues, surely there's another thread for that?

So, our resident village idiot that was the '1' in that vote is the sole MP from the libertarian Act party. He has, thankfully, less influence compared to when he was an overly-influential clingon to the last Tory government. Hopefully his party will finally fade into deserved irrelevance.

This is all too sadly spot on and I've been watching with horror.

We should've seen it coming though, even in our own midst. One only needs to look at the Islam subsection here to see Peter Brown was heading down this path years back. Now it appears to be in free-fall with everyone out-doing each other in expressing ever more extremist pronouncements. About once a day I see a comment on a news site about how our time is up and that they (the newly energized right) will be coming for us soon.

Are you talking also about criticism of religion (being unjust now)?

While it's good news, it was inevitable. Anning was only ever elected as a list politician for a right-wing party that not long after expelled him for his repellent views. So he'd never been elected in his own right, just as the number 2 on the group ticket of a party that got 2 senators. Without that endorsement, he was never going to be able to get elected, and he fell a long, long way short, even in Australia's most redneck state. The fact that he got tens of thousands of votes is still a worry, though.

New Zealand media put Christchurch gunman in his place with focus on victims

New Zealanders and media embody Jacinda Ardern’s approach to deny gunman publicity, muting coverage until life sentence delivered
