    If the citizens of france had the right to bear arms then this tragedy could have been avoided or at least the number of casualties would have been lower. The prohibition of weapons has left the civilian population in Europe practically defenseless. What would you do if someone decides to pull out a knife or a gun at you? Run? Hide? We as citizens need to have the right to defend ourselves and not simply rely on the authorities to protect us.
    If the Citizens of France were armed, a lot more people would die in France. A lot more innocent people.

    Nonsense, what stopped these terrorists from smuggling weapons into france? If one of the restaurant managers happened to have a gun stashed away inside say an AK 47 or a semi automatic weapon a lot of civilian lives could have been spared. Liberals and socialists think it's good that we remain completely defenseless. We need to have a right to bear arms in this country and protect ourselves.

    We should not be defenseless but arming citizens is not the answer. Maybe it would have saved lived on Friday. But how many more lives would be lost in unrelated murders because people are armed?

    They're Sunni.

    The state has to change the way it protects its citizens. It is the responsibility of the state rather than the people.

    I agree that many different religious have demonstrated acts of violence, but these religions should be allowed as long as they are compatible with modern times and are not forms of fundamentalism. Islam should not be practiced in its seventh century form. It should be practiced in a way that is compatible with today's Britain, and that means no Sharia law or anything like that. If Islam is practiced in its seventh century form, it becomes a more dangerous ideology than Communism or Fascism.
    Agreed, but the same can be said for Christianity or Judaism.

    Ok radicalised Muslims who hate the west . Yes arming everyone with Firearms isn't the answer I'm on about other slef defence techniques , I.e Disarming people with weapons by everyone overpowering the guys with guns if I mean using physically violence then so be it , and the people using the self defence should not be " done " for assault. We need to change the law regarding self defence

    Sorry, I was nitpicking.

    I can certainly back having a look into self defence laws. I just don't think citizens should be armed. We've seen what it's done in America.

    The government need to take action with the current immigrant 'refugee' crisis to ensure this doesn't happen again!

    Do you ever look at any evidence on these things or do you just use your shambolicly twisted logic?

    Well, when members of ISIS are running with them, possibly in 'disguise' then we need to take action!

    Potentially. But this is also something we need to take action about.

    For instance, the despicable attacks in Paris- it was found that 2 of the attackers had came from Syria via Africa in the last 3 months!

    Its worth noting that many of the French Soliders and Police have algerian hertiga and are muslim.
    Algeria having formerly been a colony, and the French having been very racist towards their family
