French gun owners badly off
Here's a translation of statements by one French presidential candidate ... and he's the more conservative one! He's speaking to a burglary victim who wants to be able to defend himself.
"Private gun ownership is dangerous. I do perfectly understand that you may be exasperated, to have been stole [burglarized] twice and I do understand the fear of your wife and your daughter, but the answer is in the efficacy of the judiciary answer. It's not in private gun ownership."
[Update, via Instapundit: Here's how good the "judicial answer" is. The police can't protect themselves, let alone anyone else.]
Interesting... is that a French version of the NRA?

Worst case of national malaise (a french word, I believe.) in , well, forever. Isn't that the country whose threat levels consist of Run, Hide, and Surrender ????
