    I had to chuckle when hearing that the French have decided they need considerably more guns and with more firepower... really? What did it take to get them thinking that way do you suppose? :rolleyes:

    The French? Make me laugh. If there aint pssy or booze involved, they aint interested.
    Firepower for them means Blue Pills (Viagra) because they gotta cheat!!

    In European heaven:

    Cooks are French
    Mechanics are German
    Cops are British
    Bosses are Swiss
    Lovers are Italian

    In European hell:

    Cooks are British
    Mechanics are French
    Cops are German
    Lovers are Swiss
    And bosses are Italians

    Notice they don't mention guns:D

    Had the pleasure of shooting a French subgun (mat 49 I think) it run just as good as any other.

    I think the citizens of France could easily stop an attack.
    From parakeets and small tree frogs....I think.

    As long as they only attack 1 or 2 at a time, and very-very slowly.
    In daylight.
    With no, rain, wind, or sun behind them.
    And not on the 3 day weekend.
    Or a holiday. Before 10AM or during lunch from 1 to 3. Coffee breaks, frequent smoke breaks, or nap times.

    on second thought. Never mind, they're completely naked from a tactical standpoint.

    Tree frogs would blend in with the environment, completely disappear and wait.
    The parakeets would dive bomb with the sun directly behind them.
    Thus creating panic and clearing the way for the frogs to block all egress and sweep up at ground level.

    Sorry France.

    Allowing 3 round bolt action rifles only to licensed hunters won't even stop a parakeet and tree frog assault.

    Which reminds me of this quip:

    The tragedy of Canada is that it could have had British culture, French cuisine and American technology. Instead it got American culture, British cuisine and French technology.

    Maybe the "birthers" should have looked in France for the emperor's birth certificate . . .

    Have you ever seen the French version of the Swiss Army Knife?

    It has 6 corkscrews and a little white flag.

    The gun decks of British sail powered warships were painted red to reduce the appearance of blood and guts which might unnerve the crew. Napoleon's cape was red on the inside so the troops would not see it if he were wounded. Now we know why Italian generals wear brown pants.
    WW2 would have been a lot less ugly if France and Italy had been elected to represent threir respective sides.
