Mass shootings are common here. It only takes a few days for us to move on. I understand it has been a long time since this kind of thing has happened in NZ. Looks like changes are being made down there. We just do "hopes and prayers here." Nothing changes, but we feel good about our "hopes and prayers." It is the LEAST we can do.

Foodlover, I'm so sorry your country has had to go through that horror.

I saddened this happened to you folks. I'm impressed by your government's quick response.

Horribly sad and so senseless. I'm very glad your country is taking steps to prevent similar future incidents.

Thanks everyone. Yes our Prime Minister has been outstanding throughout the whole event. It is the worst mass shooting we have ever had heree. When we say that sort of thing does not happen here, we are meant to be right. It is now time to move on but changes are being made and that is a good thing.
