French anger mounts Later Trump says Paris Requires more guns

US President Donald Trump has caused outrage in France and the United Kingdom by suggesting that more relaxed gun laws could have prevented the 2015 Paris attacks and subdued rising knife crime in London.

The president told the National Rifle Association convention in Dallas: "I recently read a story that in London, which has unbelievably tough gun laws, a once very prestigious hospital right in the middle is like a war zone for awful stabbing wounds".

He said that France's gun laws were the "toughest in the world", but that if more people had been allowed to carry guns in Paris, the November terrorist attacks would have seen fewer victims.

Trump also said at the NRA convention that "it would have been a whole different story" if a legally armed vigilante was present during the automatic weapons attack at the Bataclan theater in Paris in November of 2015.

'They were brutally killed by a small group of terrorists that had guns.

Trump said someone in the Bataclan club, where 90 of the 130 people died, could have ended the killing spree if they had been able to use a gun to shoot back. Come over here. Boom, come over here.

"They don't have guns".

Former French president Francois Hollande, who was ruling the country at the time of the Paris attacks, rejected Trump's remarks as "shameful" and "obscene" which "tell a lot about what he thinks about France and its values".

France slams Donald Trump for Bataclan remarks during NRA speech

Trump spoke about gun laws in France and Britain during a free-wheeling speech in front of gun owners in Texas on Friday.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian expressed his "firm disapproval" of Trump's remarks and vigorously defended France's gun controls.

London suffered a spike in knife crime early this year, and saw more murders during February and March than NY. "Knives, knives, knives", he had said, accompanied with a stabbing motion.

Knife-related crimes rose by 23 percent in London last year and a spate of stabbings and shootings have left more than 50 people dead this year alone.

'They say it's as bad as a military war zone hospital.

The Royal London Hospital has cut the number of our young patients returning after further knife attacks from 45 per cent to one per cent. The attackers killed 130 people, and over 400 were injured.

This week, Trump reenacted the 2015 Paris attack and said London will have to get used to the violence.

While making the knife crime comment, Trump was apparently referring to a comment Dr. Martin Griffiths, a surgeon at The Royal Hospital, made to BBC 4 a month ago, where he admitted his hospital was likened to an Afghan war zone. They're getting used to it.
