The US government will push through legislation to ban dancing after an off-duty FBI agent dancing wildly at a downtown Denver bar shot a man in the leg.

“We need good guys with guns, not good guys with guns dancing,” US President Donald Trump told reporters.

The FBI has raised the threat level of bars and clubs to severe following the incident.

Citizens have been advised to call the national security hotline if they see anyone attempting to get jiggy with it.

In a statement, the Denver Police Department said “people should immediately dial 911 if they witness any individual on a dance floor attempting a backflip”.

Trump commented on the incident on Twitter saying, “Guns don’t kill people, dancing kills people.”
