Christchurch Mass Shooting
|Date||15 March 2019|
|Location||Christchurch, New Zealand|
|Blamed on||Brenton Tarrant|
|Description||A mass shooting at two New Zealand mosques.|
"Snipers from the New Zealand military, as well as professional snipers from Australia and Asian countries, had been at the Defence Force shooting range at West Melton, 25kms west of the city".
CNN reported that "New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's office received an email with the manifesto from the suspect behind the mass shootings at two Christchurch mosques, minutes before the attack began."
A global collaboration quickly swung in to action to try to control access to the event. A Saidit commentator termed it " a test run to remove en mass anything that the establishment/TPTB doesn't like or want you to see or know."

The New Zealand Police deemed that video of the attack was "objectionable" and that anyone sharing it could be liable for up to 14 years in jail and that even "knowingly" possessing was punishable with up to 10 years.
By 26 March, only 37 New Zealand guns had been returned (out of a total of about 1.2 million). The police began visiting gun owners homes to confiscate guns, leading to at least one fatality by 27 March 2019.
By 29 March, "Security house Blue Hexagon claims it discovered a version of the killer's manifesto doing the rounds online containing Windows malware that, when executed with the necessary privileges, reboots the system and leaves the user staring at an anti-racist message. The idea being to punish those who seek out the document, it appears."
