Le Gun Patrol

Guns for the snobs, not for thee:
The Telegraph reports that “armed military personnel” are being deployed during Haute Couture Fashion Week for the purposes of protecting the wealthy. The military personnel “have been stationed at some of the city’s most popular monuments, including the Grand Palais, where many of the fashion houses’ high-end shows and parties are taking place.”

The Telegraph notes that Paris saw tourism wane in the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo attack and the November 13, 2015, firearm-based terror attacks. In response to these gun control failures, the city has upped its police presence via “mobile police [stations].” But the gun control polices that hinder law-abiding citizens’ acquisition of guns for self-defense are still in place.
Le peace will be kept for your own good, citizens...
