Think carefully.
Gun law will relax even more under Trump.
He hates gays and lesbians. He will be helping load the guns.

Owen Jones storms out of sky news 'press preview' show after other two co presenters try to deny this was an islamist motivated and deliberately targeted attack on LGBT people by a Muslim terrorist...





https://youtu.be/9ITdjAb3VcE



Owen jones has long been a mouthpiece of the usual leftie pc lies and spin twisty waffle...


There is a certain and undeniably delectable irony in him for once telling the truth but then himself being up against the same type of bullshit that he is so well known for normally dishing out to others...!!!

My vote is for the homophobic angle, and the Islamic identification was a cover.  I mean, how many trips did he make to the gay bar?  More than trips to Syria.

Yeah... gays are persecuted and murdered by isis and other Islamic groups all over the place... but nothing to do with islam...

Such a tragedy. I have just watched the footage from the phone of a lady that didn't survive. Heartbreaking.

Wow someone red stripped me. Sad. Oh well.

Yes it is. Sunday morning watching the news, saw a woman Mina Justice interviewed who had had text messages from her son saying he was in the bathroom and that the killer was coming to get him and that he loved her. Eddie, her son, was among those killed. My mind freezes up at the sheer horror of it.

Yeah I've seen it. Had once customer go on and on and on about it and Obama being the cause and the anti-christ. Funny thing is her step-son is gay. I don't know if it's denial or deflection or what. Also saw the Westboro idiots were spewing off again (I will not dignify them by giving them the title of church), as well as others like you say sharing stuff.

It's sick and twisted and very very frightening that people hate other people who are different to them, this much to rejoice in their death.

That Westboro CLAN is right down the street in Topeka, where my dearest sister and her 6 kids lived. And her abusive/violent Mexican husband ~~~ but that's a whole past life.  My sister used to walk past that place to attend her Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church; early mass on Saturday and to clean the church as often as possible. It was her escape ...the those men from that 'CLAN' were horrid to her and my nieces & nephews ...the ugly things they yell at them! 

Anyway ...my other political group just had a huge blow up about this event and some of those from Kentucky & Tennessee are planning on leaving now because they feel we've slighted them enough with all of this 'EQUALITY' BS.

If you need a extended clip you should not have a gun in the first place.

and it is already Proven, not up for debate at all, that places with strict gun control have far less deaths because what you posted above is COMPLETE CRAP made up by the NRA and that is not only not supported by real life facts and figures but clearly is very strongly the other way with place with US level gun control having 100's of deaths for every single death in regulated nations.

TWO-TIME cancer survivor and mother-of-11 Brenda Lee Marquez McCool has been named among the victims whose lives were taken when gunman Omar Mateen opened fire at Pulse nightclub in the early hours of Sunday morning.

According to a Go Fund Me page set up by one of her sons Farrell Marshall, “She now leaves 11 children alone on this earth who’s in need of dire help from anyone.”

Friends say the 49-year-old often enjoyed fun nights out with her 21-year-old son Isaiah Henderson, who is gay, and this weekend was meant to be no different.

Just two hours before Mateen opened fire on the club with bullets, she uploaded a video of them dancing to her Facebook page.

She was pronounced dead at 6.23pm later that day.

Her son Isaiah survived the attack, but had to look on as his own mother lost her life.

New York Daily News is reporting that Brenda died trying to protect her son.

As bodies fell around them, Ms McCool saw Mateen turn his weapon at them, her sister-in-law Ada Pressley said.

“Brenda saw him point the gun. She said, ‘Get down’, to Isaiah and she got in front of him,” Ms Pressley said.

“She was shot. That’s how much she loved her kids. If it weren’t for her, he’d of been shot.”

According toPeople, when Isaiah tried to stop and help his mother, she told him to, “Just run, go.”

At the time of her death Brenda had survived one bout of cancer, and was battling leukaemia.



Brenda’s son Farrell was clearly emotional, confused and scared for his siblings’ futures as he composed the Go Fund Me page.

“She just went out last night and said goodbye to her children and to be called 3 hours later that she has been hit by 2 gunshots and later pronounced dead and to be among the (49) killed this very day is beyond me.”

“One decision changed the lives of many. All I ask is for prayers and whatever you can to help me and brothers (and) sisters to be able to pick up the pieces where she left off. You will forever be in our hearts. Always. I truly love you so much MOM!”

Veya & WYWolfie ...and that's the horrific - ignorant - mind numbing rehetoric that so many of the Republicans that have been in 'POWER' in our elected senate & congress that fall in line with what the NRA preaches.  Well, that and the NRA hands out loads of $$$$ to those campaigns for those re-elections and the Republicans are very aware - they may not like the message and the back sliding that the NRA has done about some of the "GUN CONTROL LAWS" but they lack the knowledge & the back bone to stand up to the NRA. 
Tommykins - lacks current data about the ways & means that people modify their assault weapons - he lacks the understanding that our POTUS has an opinion about what he hopes our Congress & Senate will do - and do the right thing about tightening those known loop holes in the existing laws --- but these are not 'OBAMA's GUN CONTROL LAWS' ...these are AMERICAN'S Gun Control Laws that we want implemented and changed. 
Rather sad that it's just like the ACA - it's not 'Obama Care' and yet those lesser thinking humans just can't get their stories right! Evil or Very Mad

They are also persecuted/opposed by the KKK, southerners, Mormons and the Catholic Church. Take your pick.

We'll never eradicate crime and terrorism completely. But it's worth noting that with gun control, London has achieved a murder rate that is just one fourth of that of New York City.

Nah...it's negligible compared to any city in the US. It's the availability and market for guns that is the difference. The US has a whole firearms economy, whereas the UK does not.

The rate in usa is considerably low given the widespread availability of guns...


And it is the terrorists and criminals who are doing the murdering... and they will still be getting guns and doing the murdering regardless of the imposition of restrictions on everyone else!!!

Lot of criminals there... but out of a population of how many...?

Start banning guns for 99.99% of decent law abiding people... and the criminals and terrorists are going to be the only ones left still getting guns and other numerous weapons etc...

The Rainbow Flag flies at half mast over Edinburgh City Chambers and government buildings in many places all over the world in a show of solidarity with our brothers and sister who were brutally murdered and wounded in Orlando.

A vigil of support in the same way was also held in George Square, Glasgow also with the Rainbow Flag at half mast..



A vigil of support was held outside the Admiral Duncan pub in Old Compton Street in Soho scene of the nail bomb attack on the Gay community in London that killed 3 people and wounded around 50 more.

A show of solidarity immediately in the aftermath of this despicable act from all sectors of our community is exactly what is required at a time when tensions are running high and the prospect of events running out of control is a real possibility.  The last thing needed is the rednecks and the islamophobic and racist network of North America who have already ramped up the Islamaphobic rhetoric along with the hysterical ranting of RWs who convey their messages by seizing the opportunity to spout bile and condemnation on the entire Muslim community without making the clear distinction between the Muslims who don’t support ISIS and what they stand for and who played no part in this atrocity and the extremists who want to divide communities and create social unrest to suit their warped aganda. The extremist neocons don’t want solidarity, they want exactly the opposite and sure as hell that’s what Trump and the hysterical ranters on social media outlets are more than likely to deliver to them.



That’s the correct message to convey.

RIP to all those wh lost their lives and condolences to the friends and families who have been left to grieve over the loss of their loved ones.

Start banning guns for 99.99% of decent law abiding people... and the criminals and terrorists are going to be the only ones left still getting guns and other numerous weapons etc...



Chicago only has 2.8 million people
Sydney 4.3 million
London 8.5 million
London Has almost triple the population and about 10 gun deaths a year

figures showed criminals have fired a weapon on nearly 1,400 occasions in the capital during the past three and a half years.
Chicago has had more people in hospital for gunshots wounds in 6 months than london has had shots fired in 3 and half years

And that's only a tiny number in comparison with all those in all America

All shootings: Some 13,286 people were killed in the US by firearms in 2015, according to the Gun Violence Archive, and 26,819 people were injured [those figures exclude suicide]. Those figures are likely to rise by several hundred, once incidents in the final week of the year are counted.
Source: Gun Violence Archive
How the US compares: The number of gun murders per capita in the US in 2012 - the most recent year for comparable statistics - was nearly 30 times that in the UK, at 2.9 per 100,000 compared with just 0.1.

lol
exactly Tommy
http://heyjackass.com/

we are only just past half way through the year and they have 291 fatal shootings in Chicago that is close to 2 deaths a day
1455 have been shot and only wounded in that time
What a Face

AND, just think how much worse things would be in London, if only those crim's were to hit what they were shooting at !!!

MOST petty crim's will never actually practice with the guns they buy, but simply point and shoot, and hope for the best..
