France has stringent regulations on firearms and ammunition. As a rule, firearms which have no legitimate sporting or recreational use are not permitted entry into France.Yeah, how's that law working out for you?
Hmm. Doesn't much look like a deer rifle or sporting clays shotgun. Those little rascals broke French law!
This scenario could just have easily played out in a gun-restricted state like California, New York, Massachusetts, or Connecticut.
If a bad guy wants a gun, they'll get it. Taking guns away from good citizens won't make them any safer, it just makes them more likely to end up dead.
Seriously, if you were a terrorist in America, where would you attack? Just like with other criminals, you'd attack where you have the least likely chance of resistance.
These Islamic bastards knew with absolute certainty that not a single person in the offices of the magazine where they were attacking had a gun. At worst, there may have been a knife for slicing their brie.
France, and its people, have chosen to make themselves vulnerable. The states listed above - and a handful more - have done the same.
They willingly make themselves defenseless in the hopes that their "example" will somehow convince the bad guys that Guns Are Bad. Gimme a hug!
So, what kind of example do you want to set? One where the mindset of the populous is that of appeasement and helplessness, or one where bad guys get hit back hard. Deadly hard.
Which do you think will keep you - and your whole community - safer?
