According to the Washington Post, France’s very tough gun control laws did not have much of a deterrent effect on the Charlie Hebdo jihad murderers last January. Neither did French firearms laws seem to have any effect in stopping the November 13, 2015 jihadis from arming themselves and killing more than one-hundred young law-abiding, unarmed French civilians last Friday.
Nonetheless, leave it to a left-wing American Illinois Democrat Congressional Representative to respond to the Paris terror attack with a call for tougher gun control laws in the USA. As though stricter gun control laws here will somehow deter any terrorist in Europe from getting firearms and explosives. By the way, Chicago has some of the toughest gun control laws in the country and one of the nation’s highest per capita murder rates.
Please notice that Schakowsky dropped a very (ugly) subtle hint that perhaps those jihadis in France just could have gotten their weapons into France through arms sales originating right here in the USA.
Sort of like those drug dealers in Mexico got their firearms from the United States government in the Operation Fast and Furious caper? Is that what Ms. Schakowsky is trying to tell us? Probably not. She won’t want to discuss Fast and Furious, I’ll wager.
