New Zealand Attacker Purchased All Firearms Legally

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern speaks to the media

The suspected attacker, who identifies himself as 28-year-old Brenton Tarrant, reportedly acquired a gun license in November 2017.

Mr Brenton, a suspected white supremacist, was pictured handcuffed in the dock wearing a white prison shirt, and stood in silence without entering a plea and will be remanded in custody until April 5.

'Just 24 hours after the Christchurch shooting New Zealand bans semiautomatic guns!' she wrote in reference to New Zealand Attorney General David Parker's comments about banning the controversial weapons.

He was arrested 36 minutes after the first call to police, Ardern added.

Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said the country's high commission in New Zealand is in touch with local authorities for more information.

A video live-streamed by him on Facebook showed him rapidly firing what appeared to be hundreds of bullets at his defenseless victims using various weapons.

Police said two other people were in custody.

Now, in the wake of that horrific mass shootings at two mosques in New Zealand, Kim Kardashian has come out in support of leaders in the country who have vowed to change its gun laws.

During the emotional service the woman all held a placard with the words: "Peace will save the world #Solidarity with New Zealand mosque victims".

Bush said forensic officers and pathologists had been working around the clock to gather the evidence from the bodies needed.

"I still don't know where he is", she said.

"Fijian hearts are breaking for our brothers and sisters in New Zealand - a place where an atrocity of this nature is shocking nearly beyond comprehension".

Australian police say the family of Tarrant is helping their investigation.

In contrast, President Donald Trump has repeatedly told mourning Americans in the wake of shootings that stricter gun control would make the country more risky, not less. Armed police were deployed at several locations in all cities, unusual in a country that has had low levels of gun violence. The minimum legal age to own a gun in New Zealand is 16, or 18 for military-style semi-automatic weapons. Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday wrote to his New Zealand counterpart expressing his deepest condolences to the bereaved families of the victims. Residents were mandated to turn in their semi-automatic rifles and other now-outlawed weapons.

U.S. President Donald Trump, who condemned the attack as a "horrible massacre", was praised in the accused gunman's manifesto as "a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose".

"This act of terror was brought to our shores and rained down upon us".
