Says guns would have stopped Paris attack

16 Nov, 2015

On CNBC’s Morning Squawk, Trump says France’s gun control laws contributed to the Paris attack

And by the way, France is — France and Paris is one of the strictest in the world with guns. Those people were sitting there with no guns whatsoever — hundreds of people. There wasn’t a gun in the room except for the bad guys. Had there been some guys carrying a .45, had there been some guys with a gun, there would have been a shootout and probably the primary people that got whacked would have been the killers. So, you know you can say what you want about all of these people that preach guns but France, you can’t get any tougher than peace or any tougher that were France. These people walk into a room with hundreds and hundreds of people not a gun in the room except the bad guys. And they just said, ‘Come here – boom, come here — boom.’ They just shot these people at will for a long period of time and killed them and had there been other people carrying weapons, you would have had a lot different story, believe me.
