Friday morning after at least one shooter attacked mosques in New Zealand AOC took to Twitter and tore into the NRA (National Rifle Association). Instead of offering condolences to those that lost loved ones, AOC found it more productive to start a gun-control argument.
At one of the mosques, the attack was actually stopped by another churchgoer who had a gun and returned fire.
But the killings were stopped at the second location, thanks in part to someone who shot back at the attacker.
A man told the New Zealand Herald he heard about five gunshots and that a Friday prayer-goer returned fire with a rifle or shotgun.
The Herald reports, it was a well known Muslim local who chased the shooters away and fired two shots at them as they drove off. The man told police officers he was firing in “self defence,” reports the Herald.
So there is also an argument that a gun stopped a terrorist attack at the second location.
Authorities in New Zealand have arrested one shooter and detained three other people.
