Gun licensing procedures not followed for Christchurch mosques attack accused - ex arms control officer

A former head of gun licensing claims the man charged with the Christchurch mosque shootings wasn't interviewed in his home and his references came from online chatroom acquaintances.

Guns and gun ownership have dominated discussion since 50 people were killed and another 50 injured at two Christchurch mosques last Friday - one of the big questions being, "How did this happen?"

One ex-cop and arms control officer, Joe Green, says he's got a source alleging gun licensing procedures weren't properly followed.

"I would sooner not disclose exactly who that person is, but who I think is a highly reliable informant," Mr Green told 1 NEWS,

The informant's damning information claims the alleged gunman's application wasn't lodged in Dunedin where he lived, but filed in Waikato.
