Robbie Williams Attended Gun Inventor Party On American Massacre Weekend

Robbie Williams joined an all-star list of celebrities attending the 90th birthday of the Glock Pistol inventor Gaston Glock on the weekend.

The British pop star has come under fire for attending the party at the Glock Horse Performing Centre in Austria.

Other celebs at the party were Leona Lewis, Joan Collins, Naomi Campbell and John Travolta.

The party took place on the same weekend 30 lives were lost to gun terrorism in the USA.

Glock’s pistol is described as ‘America’s default pistol’.

According to the Violence Policy Center, Glock weapons are a favourite of terrorists. “The 2015 attack at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, that left nine dead; the 2011 attack at a Safeway in Tucson, Arizona, that left six dead and 13 wounded—including then‐U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords; and, the 2007 Virginia Tech shooting which left 33 dead and 17 wounded. Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh was illegally carrying a 45 caliber Glock pistol.”
