Trump on Paris: ‘Nobody Had Guns But the Bad Guys,’ If More People Were Armed…
Donald Trump addressed the Paris terrorist attack at a rally today by talking about the tough gun control laws there and speculating how things would have been different if more people were carrying weapons.
Trump said that “nobody had guns but the bad guys,” and so the terrorists were able to kill people one by one.
“You can say what you want,” Trump told the audience, “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.”
After the Charlie Hebdo attack in January, Trump tweeted about France’s gun control laws. That tweet got new life last night when people thought it was Trump’s comment on last night’s attack. But based on his comments today, it’s clear he still believes it.
