Murder won't stop if firearms are outlawed. Like the saying goes, then only the criminals will have guns. The rest of us would become easy targets. And even if we could erase every gun from reality, there are countless other ways to kill people. How many people died on 9/11 where the weapons used were mere box cutters? In St Cloud, it was a knife. In NY, a kitchen appliance. The Boston marathon before that. In Nice, a truck.. which could easily happen here. We accomplish nothing by trying to repeal our right of self defense. All it would do is make it easier for evil people to do evil things. You'd save more lives by banning fatty foods. But that's not going to happen either.
Hollande is done. He's doubling down on Merkel's stupidity. He'll be lucky if they don't drag the guillotine back out. Britain is leaving the EU. France will be next once Marine Le Pen takes over. The left's inability to listen and admit their mistakes is putting the nationalists in power. France is suffering not only from terror attacks, but also near endless protesting. They're on the brink. Germany is no better. They're censoring and arresting wrong-thinkers like crazy. She'll be looked back on as the one individual most responsible for the end of the EU.
The French way of life is almost over. They've been invaded. They've suffered non-stop violence. No one except the nationalists have put forward any plan to protect the public. Look at the lawlessness in Calais. Tell me how Hollande has improved that situation. He hasn't. He can't. You've confused cowardice with courage. Trump pointed out in a visit to Belgium that they were taking a great risk with their policies on immigrants. He was called a racist. Then they were attacked. He was still called a racist. But he hasn't backed down. That's courage. Hollande taking a blind eye to the destruction of his country, that's cowardice.
If America is truly great, you have no need to fear its citizens being armed. Otherwise you're saying they can't be trusted and you wish to control them. That's not how our nation works. The mere fact that you think the government should take our guns away is the proof that says we need them.
