CNN’s Don Lemon on Wednesday told Americans who don’t want to talk about gun control in the wake of the mass shooting in Florida to “shut up.”


“The rest of the world is here, and we are here off the charts when it comes to this type of violence,” Lemon said. “And the only common link is the number of guns that Americans are allowed to have. And listen, you can save it–people who are saying, ‘Oh, it’s not the time to talk about guns’ or whatever. Yes, it is. Shut up. I don’t want to hear it. It absolutely is.”

“Again, anyone with any sense knows that this is the one common denominator that America has, the sickness that we have, that we have these sorts of things, is having this much access to guns from people–especially from people who should not have access.”

“So don’t tell me that it’s not time to talk about it. You talk to those people down in Florida who lost their loved ones. They’ll tell you, it’s time to talk about it.” (RELATED: Excuse Me? CNN’s Don Lemon Claims He ‘Can Smell’ Racism [VIDEO])
