French Republican Value: Disarm Yourself for Self Defense
Nicolas Sarkozy, the French "conservative" candidate for president, is displaying his complete disconnect from reality in this statement:
"I would like to say one thing, in what is my conception of the Republic, security is the responsibility of the State, I am against militias, I am against the private ownership of firearms, and I’m trying to make you think about that."
Oh yeah, your "state security" is doing a great job of putting an end to all those Islamic immigrant riots. Hundreds of cars torched every day? Cops getting thrashed on their beats? Please pass the crack pipe before you open your mouth again.
Oh, Wait, you won't.
"If you are assaulted by an armed burglar, he’ll use his weapon more effectively than you anyway so you’re risking your life."
WHAT? Clearly you need to bone up on our news stories. Most local papers have at least one account a week of a homeowner repelling a home invasion with personal weapons. Home invasion victim fatalities are frequently those who "felt unsafe with a firearm in the home". Documentary evidence on request. Might take me a few days to scrape together the 200-page list of supporting links. Dipshit.
If the criminal is not armed and you are and you shoot, your life will be ruined, because killing someone over a theft is not in line with the republican values that are mine.
Because your ass-fucked country won't enact laws that enable property owners to defend their lives and property with whatever force is necessary to repel the assault. Just remember, "Those who beat their swords into plowshares will plow for those who don't".
"The private ownership of firearms is dangerous".
Absolutely! If you have any intention of busting down my door. Best to do it in force, but be warned: the first dozen or so making the attempt will end up being my honor guard to Valhalla.
"I understand your exasperation for having been burglarized two times, I understand the fear that your wife and daughter may have but the answer is in the efficiency of the police and the efficiency of the judiciary process, the answer is not in having guns at home."
In other words, you'd rather sit in your office spouting puddle profundities than take action to prevent further suffering among your people. You shouldn't be elected! You should be tossed to those "restless youths" who seem intent on burning your pisspot nation to the ground and forcing it to bow towards a big black rock in the Arabian desert five times a day.
What is it with the French and accepting leaders who drive the nation into the dirt? The Bourbons (at least until the Frogs wised up and beheaded the lot of those sybaritic, blue-blooded twats) Robespierre, Bonaparte, Any number of Vichy collaborators all to eager to help the Germans ship off every Jew they could root out to the camps, and now this turd. Fuck it. If the Crapauds elect him, they deserve him and every single crime his policies will enable.
