#dictatorship, #gun control, #evidence possession,
This is a familiar trick to create a dictatorship in a normally democratic nation: The aspiring dictator gets hold of an unfortunate big tragedy, professes intense emotion, inserts lies  into the news, banning the possession and questioning of evidence [2,3]. That aspiring dictator also suppress evidence of tragedies in the other directions  on the ground of preventing provocation, repercussions and revenge. The aspiring dictator incorporates a political agenda [4,5] (guns confiscation?, although the main gun used in the NZ massacre has been illegally obtained-please check) into the tragedy and make its discussion a taboo. The aspiring dictator then offers half-baked plan to protect the population from future such tragedy (though the plan does not protect them from tragedies such as of the type of Tiamen Square to be created by the dictator himself!).
The aspiring dictator is then undeposable, he then calls dissenters deniers and jail them all.
As it turns out, it appears that the terrorist is not even a right winger. He is a self-described anarchist and a radical environmentalist, and an admirer of Communist China.
In his own manifesto the terrorist gunman who killed 49 Muslims at a mosque in New Zealand…
wanted “no part of” conservatismdescribed himself as an “eco-fascist”admired Communist China.
Answering the question “Are you a conservative?”, Brenton Tarrant wrote, “No, conservatism is corporatism in disguise, I want no part of it.”
“Conservatism is dead, thank god,” he also wrote.
Describing the arc of his political journey, the killer said: “When I was young I was a communist, then an anarchist and finally a libertarian before coming to be an eco-fascist.” …
“The nation with the closest political and social values to my own is the People’s Republic of China,” he wrote.
He claimed that he was left wing, writing, “Depending on the definition, sure.”
He also disavowed President Trump from the standpoint of his policies and decisions. In answering the question: “Were you a supporter of Donald Trump?”, he replied: “Dear god no.” …
Why did Scott Morrison get it so wrong?
Pete Breidahl, a former New Zealand military machine gunner, posted a video on Facebook in the aftermath of the shootings claiming he asked police in the nearby town of Dunedin to investigate the rifle club based on troubling things he witnessed and overheard.
He said he saw members taking target practice using guns with 30-bullet magazines, talking about “zombie apocalypses, rifles for combat when they’re overweight and … useless” and discussing “homicidal fantasies.”
Breidahl told the New York Times that he reported the club to police in 2017, shortly after visiting the club for the first time. He told the newspaper he was concerned about the mental stability of the club’s members and the way they handled guns.
Gun City owner David Tipple said Tarrant purchased four guns from the store but denied selling him a semi-automatic rifle used in the mosque attacks.
