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

Donald Trump was speaking at the National Rifle Convention

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 USA president. Every country is free to define its own laws when it comes to bearing arms.

The French foreign Ministry announced on this occasion a special statement which said: "France strongly disagree with the comments of the President of trump on Paris attacks that took place on 13 November 2015, and it requires respect for the memory of the victims of these events".

The French Foreign Ministry last night expressed its "disapproval" of Trump's comments in a statement.

Trump's comments have caused upset before in Britain, which views itself as the United States' closest ally. The former head of Paris called statements of the US President's "shameful" and stressed that his manner of gesture "obscene". "France is proud to be a country where acquiring and carrying firearms is strictly regulated."The mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, tweeted that President Trump's depiction of the 2015 attacks was "scornful and unworthy".

In March, hundreds of thousands of people rallied the streets of the U.S. capital for the "March for Our Lives", calling for stricter gun control in the country.

The French Government issued its strongest criticism of Mr Trump since he took office, at a time when President Emmanuel Macron has been reinforcing bilateral ties following a state visit.

Valls simply said of Trump's remarks: "Indecent and incompetent". Needless to say, his speech angered many.

Jihadists armed with assault rifles and suicide vests struck outside a France-Germany football match at the national stadium, cafes and bars, and the Bataclan concert hall in a coordinated assault that left 130 people dead and more than 350 wounded. "They have knives, and instead there's blood all over the floors of this hospital".

"They say it's as bad as a military war zone hospital ... knives, knives, knives, knives", he added, making stabbing gestures.

A senior London surgeon, Prof Karim Brohi, hit back by saying it was "ridiculous" to suggest guns could help combat knife violence. "The statistics of firearm victims do not make us question France's choice in the matter".

"Gunshot wounds are at least twice as lethal as knife injuries, and more hard to fix", Prof Brohi said in a statement on Saturday.

He suggested sarcastically that countries that ban guns "should ban cars too", because they are "the new form of death for the maniac terrorists".
