France Considers Requiring that All Local Police Carry Guns

With terrorism and related violence on the rise in France, a parliamentary commission is considering a mandate that officers in all municipalities carry guns.
Quartz reports that police in France are “overwhelmed” and that French interior minister Gérard Collomb is seeking a way to alleviate some of the officers’ burden. To that end, Collomb “launched a parliamentary commission to find ways to support security forces and municipal police.”

The commission put together over 70 recommendations to aid police, one of which is arming all “municipal police” who answer to the mayors in their specific locality and who are charged with preserving public safety.

The recommendation to arm all officers runs counter to current French law which directs municipal police to eschew the carrying of firearms save in situations where the mayor of a particular locality requests it.
It should be noted that the recommendation to arm all officers did not emerge from a vacuum. On January 19, 2015, 12 days after the Charlie Hebdo attackers gunned down unarmed French police, the Associated Press reported French police unions were urging Interior Ministry officials to provide “more” guns and “heavier” guns, as well as “protective gear, better training for first-responders, and more legal tools to guard against terrorists.”

France has now “identified 78 attempted terror attacks between October 2013 and March 2018 on home soil,” so the left cannot as easily dismiss Charlie Hebdo and similar attacks as isolated incidents. The parliamentary commission’s recommendation is a response to clear and present danger.

I wrote a few times on FF/TTH France needed to double its Army and police spending.

No French politician advocates that. Not weakling Macron. Not blowhard Marine Le Trumpen.


And down the road goes the can.

Common sense at last!

A horde of men battled with weapons in Luton, England, leaving some bleeding in the street as seven people were taken to hospital, according to reports.

Video footage of a massive brawl involving bats, rods and sharp objects was shared by Twitter user Ali Javed -

The driver in a dramatic car chase that ended on the runway at a French airport declared he was on a mission from "Allah," police say.

A high-speed pursuit that unfolded across multiple airports in Lyon, France, ended on the tarmac at Saint-Exupéry Airport, the city's main hub and one of the country's busiest, causing a major disruption as many flights were grounded or diverted.

Video footage depicts a Mercedes going airborne as it barreled towards the runway, with its driver eventually attempting an on-foot escape before being surrounded and arrested.

"I have been sent by Allah," the driver said during the incident, according to police.
