‘I am opposed to self-defense’ – Macron says farmer had no right to kill a burglar who broke into his home
Despite France seeing a drastic increase in crime and murder, Emmanuel Macron said he believes that people do not have the right to defend themselves

After a farmer shot a man who broke into his home, French President Emmanuel Macron said the French people do not have the right to self-defense, and the man should have instead let the police handle the incident.

Macron made his controversial remarks on Europe 1 news channel while broadcasting in Fourras, France, after learning of the news that a 35-year-old man from Longré, in the north of Charente, was indicted for murder after fatally shooting a 40-year-old man who broke into his home last Friday.

According to the initial investigation, the farmer fired twice with a large caliber rifle at a group of four burglars, killing one of them. The self-defense shooting took place last Friday, between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m., and the man was alone with his 3-year-old daughter at the time.

When commenting on the matter, Macron said that he considers himself to be living in the “state of law.”

“Everyone must be safe, and the public authorities have to ensure it,” he declared while speaking on Europe 1.

“But I am opposed to self-defense. It’s very clear and undisputable because otherwise, the country becomes the Wild West. And I don’t want a country where weapons proliferate and where we consider that it’s up to the citizens to defend themselves,” said Macron.

The president said he wants the French to rely on the police and the gendarmerie to ensure their safety, however, critics have pointed to France’s deteriorating security situation, increase in murders, and sexual assaults. The existence of no-go zones in majority migrant neighborhoods where police fear to go has only fueled fears that France is unable to police a significant portion of its population.<Source>

Bottom line…

We need to kick France out of NATO. Not worth defending people who won’t defend themselves.

And, now you know why people need AR-15s with high-capacity magazines.
