Tonight I am convinced more than ever of the need for average citizens to be permitted to carry handguns, after being trained how to use them.
More than 100 people were held hostage by cowardly terrorists in a Paris concert hall today, and it seems like most of them were killed. If some of them had been carrying handguns, they might have been able to shoot the terrorists. Instead, the terrorists were able to murder the hostages in cold blood . . .
I know all the arguments against allowing people to bear arms, but these are not normal times. There are terrorists cells looking for soft targets, and people in countries like France, Britain and Canada are sitting ducks.
Islamic terrorists think twice about trying such attacks on American soil, because they know that many Americans are armed and will fight back.
We Canadians should have the right. We should be allowed to bear arms and be ready to neutralize terrorists . . .
I also feel it is time for the coalition to put boots on the ground, go in and finish off ISIS, and round up their sympathizers around the world. And we must rethink the idea of admitting thousands of Syrian refugees into our countries. Already, there is speculation that up to 4,000 ISIS agents have slipped into Europe posing as refugees, and that the attacks in Paris today may have been staged by some of them.
