Abdul Aziz: The man who saved lives by running at the Christchurch gunman
Abdul Aziz did not hide when the shooter advanced toward the Linwood mosque during Friday prayers, killing those in his path. Instead, he picked up the first thing he could find — a credit card machine — and ran outside screaming “Come here!”

What if Abdul Aziz had been armed? He could have saved those 7 lives as well.
Man who stood up to mosque gunman probably saved lives
Aziz said he ran, weaving through cars parked in the driveway, which prevented the gunman from getting a clean shot. Then Aziz spotted a gun the gunman had abandoned and picked it up, pointed it and squeezed the trigger. It was empty.
He said the gunman ran back to the car for a second time, likely to grab yet another weapon.
‘He gets into his car and I just got the gun and threw it on his window like an arrow and blasted his window’, he said.
The windshield shattered: ‘That’s why he got scared’.
He said the gunman was cursing at him, yelling that he was going to kill them all. But he drove away and Aziz said he chased the car down the street to a red light, before it made a U-turn and sped away. Online videos indicate police officers managed to force the car from the road and drag out the suspect soon after.

What if the weapon Aziz picked up had not been empty? He could have ended it sooner. Ardern wants to disarm heroes like Aziz and 4.8 million other innocent New Zealanders. Does she think that terrorists will pay any regard to gun laws?
