The Brexit assassination in UK unlikely to spark gun debate
A British lawmaker was shot to death Thursday in a small town she represents, a tragedy that brought to a standstill the fierce campaign over whether Britain should leave the European Union.The reason for a lack of a gun debate, is because they are already outlawed in the hands of civilians. Liberals may be surprised that people willing to murder someone would also break laws against teh possession and sue of a gun. But the killing could add perspective to the debate in this country over restricting the sale of guns following the terrorist attack in Orlando, but don;t expect Democrats to show real "common sense" about the subject.
Labour legislator Jo Cox was attacked just before 1 p.m. in Birstall, northern England, Acting Chief Constable Dee Collins of the West Yorkshire Police said. She was pronounced dead by a doctor less than an hour later.
A 77-year-old man was also injured in the attack.
A 52-year-old man has been arrested, and Collins said police believe it is a “lone incident” and are not looking for anyone else in connection with the attack.
