    Wink This doesn't make sense!!!

    This story doesn't make sense...

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15424638/from/RS.2/

    "About 10 attackers five of them with handguns stormed a bus in Montreuil east of Paris early Thursday and forced the passengers off, the RATP transport authority said. They then drove off and set the bus on fire."

    Uh, France has some of the strictest gun control laws in the world. Why, then, would 5 police officers (which is what the "attackers" must have been to have had guns) force people off a bus and burn it?



    Very weird police officers over there is France.

    With the reporting of mass attacks on police over there these days - I'd hardly be surprised at any event!!!

    Seems that and general vandalism/hoodlum activity is gaining a hold. If they don't crack down and hard - it will continue to escalate IMO.

    C'EST LA VIE! No way this could happen in such a gun control society. Or maybe gun control just doesn't work. Who would have thought.

    Guns smuggled from US?

    Those guns must have been smuggled in from the US - we'll have Mayor Bloomberg and his private detectives look into it.

    I'll tell you how they got the guns, they walked up to some members of the french military (I know, I know...french military is an oxymoron) and just told them to surrender which gave the french soldiers (?) a chance to whip out their white flags (standard part of the issued equipment) and hand over their weapons.
