No, you numbskulls! The message of Orlando is that the US needs to ban guns, not that the UK should leave the EU!

160613 LeaveEU Orlando poster

There it is. I said some clueless fools would try to use the Orlando atrocity to boost Brexit and Leave.EU has obliged.

I said my piece about Orlando and the EU referendum in that article, but here’s the important point for citizens of the United States:

Your stupidly lax gun laws are killing your people. They are killing your friends, your family members and your colleagues. You need to put a stop to it.

Look at the feeble excuses provided by US gun users who were involved in shootings in May this year:

160613 gun crime motives May 2016

I wouldn’t let those people have the remote control for the telly, let alone give them ownership of a deadly weapon!

So come on, America. Are you really so cowed by the rich and powerful interests running the US gun lobby that you won’t act for your own survival?

It’s time for change. The next victim could be you.

One of the groups calling for Britain to leave the European Union has unveiled an advert referencing the Orlando terrorist attack in a desperate bid to drive up votes for Brexit.

The advert urges voters to “act now before we see an Orlando-style atrocity here”.

Omar Mateen killed 49 people and wounded 53 more in the deadliest mass shooting in recent US history, before being shot dead by police. Mateen was a US citizen of Afghan descent who was born in New York and lived in Florida.

    I completely disagree.
    We need to learn a lesson from this…. in the UK we need more guns, TTIP will free us from the oppression of Eurocrats and we can be more like the USA.
    USA is the number one in homelessness, healthcare abuse, greed, arms sales, private companies ignoring citizens to the point of lawsuits because of deaths…YeeeHaaa let’s all be American we are #1 …..
    Incidinentally, the men in white coats are on their way to me, just a delay in the USA owned private call centre..I’m sure they will be here any time soon…..

    I notice that the gunman had far stronger ties to G4S than ISIS – are they being investigated by the US Department for Homeland Security and all their employees put on “no fly” lists? They even supplied him with weapons!
    We’d better ban them immediately as a terrorist organisation and arrest the ringleaders and especially those who provide them with funding – like the home office, for example.
