I doubt it very much (i'd be interested to see the sources). Maybe a brave unarmed citizen, but highly unlikely that Kiwis would carry firearms for anything other than hunting or pest control. Its just not that sort of place, which makes this tragedy even more cowardly & heinous.Terrible tragedy. I am seeing from some sources that it was an armed citizen that stopped the 2nd mosque (Linwood) attack. The reports suggest after the first mosque the attacker(s) went to a second mosque for a repeat that was partially repelled by an armed citizen.
