Donald Trump's Despicably Callous Response to Paris Terror Attack

Leave it to blowhard presidential contender Donald Trump to deliver one of the most vile responses to yesterday’s horrific terror attacks in Paris, which killed 129 people and injured hundreds more.


Speaking in Beaumont, Texas on Saturday, the GOP frontrunner blamed gun control for the scale of the casualties, echoing comments he made following the Charlie Hebdo attack in January.

CNN reports:

Donald Trump said Saturday that the terrorist attacks in Paris“would’ve been a much different situation” if the city had looser gun laws.

“When you look at Paris — you know the toughest gun laws in the world, Paris — nobody had guns but the bad guys. Nobody had guns. Nobody,” Trump said at a rally here. “They were just shooting them one by one and then they (security forces) broke in and had a big shootout and ultimately killed the terrorists.”

“You can say what you want, but if they had guns, if our people had guns, if they were allowed to carry –” Trump said, pausing as the crowd erupted into raucous applause, “– it would’ve been a much, much different situation.”
