Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Saturday that the terror attacks in Paris would have been ‘a much, much different situation’ had the victims been armed with guns.
In the immediate aftermath of the coordinated assaults in Paris, which killed at least 129 and injured 352 more and for which Islamic State has claimed responsibility, Trump called on the Obama administration to reconsider plans to allow thousands of Syrian refugees to be resettled in the United States.
‘With the problems our country has, to take in 250,000 people, some of whom are going to have problems, big problems, is just insane,’ Trump said at a rally on Saturday in Beaumont, Texas.
Did you know that if you’re being attacked, and you have a gun, that you can potentially stop the attack and perhaps minimize the injuries caused to innocent people? It’s common sense and logic rolled into one, although it might be too simple for some to process.
Does it make sense to anyone else, or am I alone out here on brain island?
