MUST SEE: The Rebel's Lauren Southern annihilates Jeffrey Robinson in gun control debate on Sky News

Rebel Staff

As The Rebel's Lauren Southern continues her European tour, she took part in a gun control debate against Jeffrey Robinson on the UK's Sky News.

Let's just say this got feisty and extremely heated.


Robinson tells “MISS Southern” to go back to Canada, change the gun laws there and then come back on Sky News and see “how well that works out”.

“I would love for the gun laws to change in Canada. If I were...in a mass-shooting, the first thing I would think is 'I wish I had a gun on me'. The gun is an equalizer. As an individual, if I was attacked... if men attacked me, I couldn't overpower them. I would want a gun on me to defend myself,” Lauren strikes back.

She then goes on to say how people with guns could have prevented mass-shootings in the case of Orlando and Paris.

When the moderator calls Lauren's point 'good', Robinson interjects, “it's not a good point. It's nonsense. It's utter crap.”

“What gun laws do is prevent violence,” Robinson starts to say as Lauren bring up Paris.

The debate continues with Lauren explaining to the much older Robinson the importance of the second amendment, which he yet again calls “utter nonsense”.

“This is exactly why the Libertarian Party in Canada and the Libertarian Party in America have no credibility,” Robinson sneers.

“These are personal attacks, sir,” Lauren replies.

Just wait until you see the end when the moderator asks the two “who makes gun control laws in the USA?” It's going to shock you.

I’ve checked out homicide rates in Manitoba with these across the medicine line in North Dakota and Minnesota. Both of theirs are substantially lower inspire of them both allowing concealed carry. 40,000 permits in ND and 600,000 in Minnesota. Montana is quite similar to Alberta in spite of allowing both open carry and concealed carry. Facts are such pesky things.

Bill Elder: Well said. I agree. Leave the chest pounding to the Gorillas.

“…If this asshole had spoken that way to any mannerly woman in my presence I’d have bitch slapped the old commie cooter to remind him others have higher standards of civil behavior than venal old marxist ordure munchers…”

This one’s for you Bill…53 seconds from “Band of Angels”

Good on ya Lauren – I love watching these old Marxist operatives heads explode when they are exposed to fact and reality – same old crap – get blustery, make personal accusations and condemnations and double down on the commie BS.

Obviously this sheltered/insulated old Dem insider lives in a gated community protected by armed private security – this repulsive old gargoyle could have been hooked up with Bill Ayers in the day planning armed revolt (Bill is now a big civilian gun control evangelist) but the Marxists have decided the perfect revolution is to disarm the public and let the Washington and its enforcement army do their dirty work.

BTW This is a demonstration of the mindset, tactics and incivility of the gun-hater fanatic – he was not there to debate he was there to get his way by any means possible – lies, dramatic outrage, intimidation, fraudulent expertise, personal attacks and snide insinuation. If this asshole had spoken that way to any mannerly woman in my presence I’d have bitch slapped the old commie cooter to remind him others have higher standards of civil behavior than venal old marxist ordure munchers..

Paul McCormack Another interesting exercise is to compare stats between provinces and states of similar population and demographics….you’ll see in some cases murder rates are actually higher north of the border!

John Lott Jr’s book “More Guns, Less crime” proved beyond any shadow of a doubt that armed citizenry prevents a vast amount of gun violence. People like Robinson will never concede a truth like that. The Left does not believe in facts, period.

Wow, MISS Southern, you sure kicked MISTER Robinson’s ass all over the internet. You appeared as the mature calm collected intelligent adult as opposed to the ranting ignorant juvenile he portrayed. Very impressive!!

It is easy to connect the dots with these stories. http://globalnews.ca/news/1937397/mandatory-minimums-for-gun-crimes-unconstitutional-supreme-court/ http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/toronto-police-stumped-by-increase-in-gun-violence-this-year-1.3200089 The last sentence says allot. “We’ve had over 10 straight years of overall crime reduction, but every now and then we get a spike in crime. We’re putting our best people on it.”
commented 2016-06-24 11:03:34 -0400
Yes there is allot of points one could have countered with or questioned firstly being the fact we have a tenth of the population and also what kind of government is in power. Despite liberals claims of about gun violence crime rates go up when liberals are in power in Canada. Check the statistics. When Harper was in power and he threatened to get tough on gun crimes they dropped dramatically. Now it almost seems daily we are hearing about shootings and stabbings again despite any talk of getting tough on guns. http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/85-002-x/2014001/article/14040-eng.htm#a3 It would seem obviously counter intuitive to decrease punishment for those who use guns illegally while at the same time outing guns.

Good job Lauren.
Someone please smack that lying commie child molesting POS, Robinson, right upside his ugly degenerate head…liberals are soooo offensive in their self righteous ignorance.
Although the irrationality, delusional anti-gun-nut stats and petulant hysterics exhibited by this oh so typical pinko hater of America, is a great example to illustrate the utter moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the left, you have to know you will never cure these bozos of their delusions…so we may as well just start taking them out – I’m mean that’s what their heroes, the Islamists and Communists do, so it should be OK with the lefties…
We are at war here…and we had better start fighting back before it’s too late to fight back!

Another leftist with no facts and arguments but a bucket full of insults , Lauren I’m proud of you.
commented 2016-06-24 03:02:57 -0400
Mr. Robinson provided the world with a full measure of incoherent dialogue on gun control that was mentally rabid and intellectually vile. This is what evil starts to look like under the surface whether it be from the right or left. Mr. Robinson sees no difference between guns owned and used legally and those used illegally. His arguments are pure evil in that by bureaucratic fiat, citizens can be deemed as criminals overnight. The disregard in his tyrannical tantrum of this very point marks him as a dangerous person to humanity. The core principle and final destination of all tyranny is to disarm and subjugate the populace. The evidence from historical lessons should make that plain enough. Mr. Robinson should concern himself with cutting back on his aspartame use, pushing for tougher sentences when guns are used in crime and follow through on mental health checks, programs and funding.
Lauren, well done. Keep calm and carry on!

Chicago gun free zone and Switzerland citizen obligation to bear army issue rifle….hmmmmm

That was an impressive performance. Lauren had great composure throughout and unlike her opponent, rational arguments. Gun laws are only one difference between Canada and the U.S. when looking at gun crime. You also have to look at the culture of the nation, demographics (the destruction of the african american family unit), a land border with a sometimes lawless Mexico for much greater gang violence, and “safe zones” which is another name for a shooting gallery. One must examine the entire picture before cherry picking stats that favour your perspective.
commented 2016-06-24 01:19:15 -0400
Well Lauren…..it is very difficult to win an argument with an intelligent person and impossible to win against an idiot. Good job!

I get so tired of hearing the leftist spewing their skewed ‘facts’ when comparing US & Canada.

His facts were cherry picked to support his predetermined bias.

If you consider:
A) – the US has 300,000,000+ population & Canada has 30,000, 000+ there is already a massive disparity when quoting ‘x’ number of deaths in the US vs ‘Y’ number of deaths in Canada.

B) – I spent several hours researching FBI stats, Surgeon General stats vs RCMP, Health Canada, etc & cross referencing with UN stats.

When cherry picking ONLY firearms deaths there is a huge difference between US & Canada, however when you take into account ALL violent deaths (this includes criminal activity, suicides, accidents, police related, etc for all weapons types.) & then distill these numbers to a commonality of violent deaths per 100,000 of population, there is virtually no difference in death rates between the US & Canada. Indeed, there are years when Canada produces more violent deaths, despite the US mass killings, & there are some years when US death rates are higher (even without mass killings.)

Guns are the weapon of choice in the US (though they are quickly gaining favour with criminals here in Canada as well) due to the ease of procurement, while knives are the most frequently used weapon in Canada for the same reason.

A wise person once told me people only result to name calling and insults when they run out of intelligent debate. I’d like to add that acting loud and angry doesn’t amount to a good argument.
commented 2016-06-23 23:05:34 -0400
Not to criticize an excellent performance by MISS Southern (?) I was wondering when she was going to bring up the theater shooter and the fact that he passed by other kill zones to hit the first one that he found that was gun free? I always thought that was the best argument to shut up idiots like this guy. She could have been more condescending. He deserved it.
commented 2016-06-23 22:46:12 -0400
Remember when Stephen Harper dared to suggest that for the people in the remote areas of our fair Dominion, guns allowed a certain amount of security. The MSM went ballistic and accused him of encouraging vigilantism. The sophisticates in the MSM would piss their pants in fright if they ever fired a real firearm and yet they sit in judgement of us. There was some newsreel footage of an urban eunuch (modern pseudo male)reporter shooting a few rounds out of an AR15 at a range then claiming he was coming down with PTSD as a result…The western civilization crumbles…

Your going places in the media circuit with your smarts and looks
Don’t be afraid of these liberal bullies
Use these people to hone your debating skills
Purposely seek out these panel debates , polish your skills to resilient shine so their rhetoric will bounce off you , remember they can’t physically hurt you
I agree you won that one

Good point Lauren, the second amendment was put in for the public to form militias to guard against tyrannical governments, end of story. It then holds in place the rest of the U.S. Constitution. Oh and then we have our Canadian charter of NO rights and NO freedoms……..

Wow what slimy rock did they find this arrogant, condescending ass under?
But he does epitomize the typical left winger perfectly.

Ramadan Bombathon 2016 Day number 18

Muslims often insist that other religions are just as violent as theirs and that the bigger problem is “Islamophobia”.
We put that narrative to the rest each Ramadan with a running count of ALL terror attacks categorized by motive.

Motive – Terror in the name of Islam………………..Attacks = 144….….Kills = 1058
Motive – All other religions combined …………….Attacks = 0…………Kills = 0
Motive – By Islamophobes…………………………….Attacks = 0…………Kills = 0

I wish there was a way to contact him to let him know he got his ass handed to him by a pretty “girl” that he did not like.

Well done Lauren.

Jeffrey Robinson should be forced to view this complete short video at least once a week for the next year so that he will have to endure what a fool he looks. If it doesn’t embarrass him or even shame him, then he is a dangerous “man”.

If leftys want to be a victim LET THEM GO AHEAD AND GET KILLED COWERING IN A CORNER, just don’t expect everyone to be as stupid as they are and be a helpless victim. I for one choose to defend my family and no lefty can stop me. What are they going to do send me a nasty letter !
