French Stealing Brady Talking Points!

God, this is so rich! You absolutely just can not make this shit up!
Via David Codrea comes this, from Nicolas Sarkozy, the French Conservative presidential frontrunner (emphasis mine — ed.)

I am against militias, I am against the private ownership of firearms, and I’m trying to make you think about that. If you are assaulted by an armed burglar, he’ll use his weapon more effectively than you anyway so you’re risking your life. 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. The private ownership of firearms is dangerous. 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.

Looks like the old French attitude of “l’etat, c’est moi” is alive and well. I wonder how many armed-to-the-teeth bodyguards that puke Sarkozy has. And they call him the conservative one!
And look at what he’s saying! I’ll be damned if it doesn’t come straight from the gun-grabbers’ playbook right here in this country! “If you are assaulted by an armed burglar, he’ll use his weapon more effectively than you anyway so you’re risking your life. …I understand your exasperation…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.”
Translation: “Let the police handle it, they’re the only ones professional enough…” I don’t know how many Frenchmen are actively trying to rid themselves of the whole “cheese-eating surrender monkey” stereotype, but it’s hard to dispute that their political candidates’ utterings of such lunacy undermines those efforts a great deal. I can’t help but think, once again, of what the great Bill Whittle penned in “Freedom” (emphasis mine –ed.)

Kick down 100 doors of self-proclaimed French pacifists, grab the women and kids, and haul them away. Then try that again in Texas, with 100 NRA members.

I’m not sure it’s only the “pacifists” who’d just roll over, either…
