France's government shamefully refuses to consider Trump's argument against gun control

Donald Trump was right that if more people were allowed to carry firearms in France, it could've stopped the terrorists more easily. But the government of Macron refuses to listen to reason:
When President Donald Trump spoke to the NRA convention on Friday, he suggested fewer people could have died in Paris on November 13, 2015, if Parisians had been allowed to be armed for self-defense.

The Daily Mail reports that French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian responded by expressing “firm disapproval” of Trump’s suggestion that allowing people to be armed for self-defense would have made them safer.

[...] Despite the 130 killed in Paris that night, Le Drian said they will not “reconsider France’s choice on this issue.” He added, “‘Free circulation of weapons in society does not constitute a rampart against terrorist attacks, to the contrary, it can facilitate this type of attack.” In saying this, Le Drian ignored the fact that the attack occurred despite France’s strict gun controls.

Trump’s observation is simply that the attack was made worse because the victims were rendered defenseless by the myriad gun laws in France.
Who said anything about "free circulation"? That would imply giving guns away for free, when you usually have to pay money to buy them. The creep Le Drian is just being selfish and self-righteous about their catastrophous policies, many which are so archaic, they've effectively destroyed society. I think it's time for demonstrations calling for self-defense to be allowed without fear of prosecution, that's for sure.
