First Lady Melania Trump responded to the tragic shooting in New Zealand with a powerful statement.
My deepest condolences to the families who lost loved ones in the horrific shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand. We pray & grieve with you and stand against all of the hatred.

Thursday, liberal media sensation Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez elicited criticism when she appeared to attack those of faith by asking “What good are your thoughts & prayers when they don’t even keep the pews safe?”
At 1st I thought of saying, “Imagine being told your house of faith isn’t safe anymore.”
But I couldn’t say “imagine.”
Because of Charleston.

Some others pushed fake news including a twitter user who falsely claimed “Your husband was the shooter’s inspiration.”
Per ABC, After 49 people were gunned down in terrorist attacks at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, on Friday, the prime minister is vowing to change gun laws.
At least one gunman carried out what is now the deadliest shooting in New Zealand history.
Forty-two others were injured, including two critically, in what became “one of New Zealand’s darkest days,” New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said.
Ardern said Saturday, “while the nation grapples with a form of grief and anger that we have not experienced before, we are seeking answers.”
She vowed that “while work is being done as to the chain of events that led to both the holding of this gun license and the possession of these weapons, I can tell you one thing right now: Our gun laws will change.”
