Donald Trump had a very interesting point about the deadly attacks by Muslim terrorists on the editors of the magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris. He noted in a Twitter post that this brutal attack occurred in a country that is a liberal’s dream in the area of gun control.
“If the people so violently shot down in Paris had guns, at least they would have had a fighting chance. Isn’t it interesting that the tragedy in Paris took place in one of the toughest gun control countries in the world? Remember, when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.”
Liberals and Democrats such as those in the Colorado legislature say if we had more gun control laws then it would prevent violence and mass shootings because the problem is our society makes it too easy to get guns. However, it is noteworthy that in a country with stricter gun control laws than the United States, these Muslim terrorists had no problem getting what is supposed to be unavailable.
While the blame for the horrific massacre lies with the shooters, this incident shows once again that gun control laws do not prevent violent crime.
