Trump Says France’s Gun Laws Made Tragedy Worse

An armed French citizenry might have helped more people survive Friday’s terrorist attacks, according to Donald Trump.

“When you look at Paris, you know, the toughest gun laws in the world, nobody had guns except for the bad guys; nobody,” the Republican presidential contender declared Saturday during a speech in Beaumont, Texas. “Nobody had guns; and they were just shooting them one by one.”

Trump added: “I’ll tell you what, you can say what you want, but if they had guns, if our people had guns, if they were allowed to carry, it would have been a much, much different situation.”

The Hill reported that ISIS has claimed responsibility for the assaults at multiple sites that killed at least 129 people. The death toll is likely to grow, as nearly 400 victims suffered injuries.

According to Trump, the incident illustrates that President Obama would be “insane” to follow through on his proposal to provide Syrian refugees sanctuary in the United States. The candidate cited evidence that one of Friday’s terrorists might have migrated to France from Greece.

“Our president wants to take in 250,000 from Syria. I mean, think of it, 250,000 people, and we all have heart, and we all want people taken care of and all that, but the problems our country has to take in 250,000 people, some of whom are going to have problems, big problems, is just insane,” Trump said.
