France expresses 'firm disapproval' of Trump's gun law comments

France expresses 'firm disapproval' of Trump's gun law comments

"His comments are shocking and not worthy of the president of the world's greatest superpower", Mr Le Maire told BFM TV yesterday.

In a speech to the National Rifle Association (NRA) Leadership Forum on Saturday, Mr Trump mimicked the shooting of victims in Paris and said "it would have been a whole different story" if civilians had been armed.

He said the Paris assault might have been prevented if citizens were allowed to buy arms.

He told the audience, "Nobody has guns in Paris and we all remember more than 130 people, plus tremendous numbers of people that were horribly, horribly wounded". Did you notice that nobody ever talks about them?

"They took their time and gunned them down one by one", he added, before mimicking the shooters while saying: "Boom".

The French government issued its strongest criticism of Mr Trump since he took office and one minister urged the leader to apologise, at a time when President Emmanuel Macron has been reinforcing bilateral ties following a state visit.

As well as the response from Brohi outlining the problems with attempting to solve knife crime with guns, his colleague Dr Martin Griffiths, who said in an interview with BBC Radio 4 that some of his colleagues had compared treating stabbing victims to working in Camp Bastion in Afghanistan extended an invitation to Trump to visit The Royal London. Boom! Come over here.

Trump's NRA speech also drew anger in France on Saturday, after the US president, using his hand in a gun gesture, acted out how a gunman had killed hostages one by one during an attack in Paris in November 2015.

"Every country freely decides on its own laws on carrying firearms ..." A stadium, cafes, restaurants and a concert hall were attacked.

But it is not the first time Trump has targeted Paris, implying on the campaign trail in 2016 that the City of Lights was overrun by foreigners and extremists. Solidarity with the victims... the French are shocked.

Even former French president Francois Hollande and ex-prime minister Manuel Valls took to Twitter to express their disapproval of the statements made by the U.S. president.

France believes that the position of Donald trump wrong.

Valls simply said of Trump's remarks: "Indecent and incompetent. What more can I say?"

French anger erupted this weekend at Trump's comments to the National Rifle Association - and especially at his trigger-firing hand gesture imitating the Bataclan attackers. They have knives and instead there's blood all over the floors of this hospital. The coordinated assault claimed the lives of 130 people and wounded more than 350.

London suffered a spike in knife crime early this year and saw more murders during February and March than NY.
