Gun control disarms victims, not criminals. Two very high-profile attacks in Europe in the past 24 hours prove that point eloquently, but sadly won’t change minds of gun control radicals in America or anywhere else.  In Slovakia, a would-be assassin shot a very popular (and populist) Prime Minister. Meanwhile in France, a drug gang shot up a prisoner transport team, killing at least two guards and wounding others.

Compared to most (but not all) jurisdictions in the U.S., the Europeans have extremely robust gun control schemes. It tends to help keep the subjects there disarmed and helpless in the face of terrorists, criminals and authoritarian governments.

Even with all of the gun control in the world, there’s still no shortage of “gun violence” in those nations. Or high-profile crimes like these.

First, from Slovakia, courtesy ZeroHedge:

Slovakia’s populist prime minister Robert Fico has been shot, according to breaking news reports, after which he was rushed to the hospital and appears to be alive according to early reports. But some reports have listed his condition as “very serious” and that he had to be airlifted.

According to emerging details in The Associated Press, Fico “was injured in a shooting and taken to hospital. The incident took place in the town of Handlova, some 150 kilometers northeast of the capital, according to the news television station TA3.”

Fico gained in popularity by telling the globalists to pound sand. He opposes Ukraine’s admission to NATO. Fico also publicly suggested that Ukraine would have to give up territory to end fighting with Russia. After all, that’s what people losing a war do when they surrender.

Fico also opposed illegal immigration, told WHO to buzz off and regulated non-government organizations to limit their ability to facilitate illegal activities including illegal border crossers.

Meanwhile, in France this happened.

From the AP:

PARIS (AP) — A massive manhunt was underway in France on Wednesday for armed assailants who ambushed a prison convoy, killing two prison officers, seriously injuring three others and springing the inmate they were escorting. The prime minister vowed the gang would be caught, saying, “They will pay.”

“We are tracking you, we will find you and we will punish you,” Prime Minister Gabriel Attal said in parliament, to applause from lawmakers. “They will pay for what they have done.”

The escaped convict, Mohamed Amra, 30, has a long criminal record, with at least 13 convictions for robbery and other crimes, the first when he was just 15, prosecutors said.

French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said “unprecedented” efforts were being deployed. Hundreds of officers were mobilized in the search for Amra and for the assailants who laid in wait for the prison van transporting him, ramming a car into it before opening fire on Tuesday.

The violence of the attack shocked France. Prison workers held moments of silence Wednesday outside prisons in Paris and elsewhere to commemorate the officers who were killed.

Clearly the criminals in France have no problems getting guns, ammunition and skill sets amid strict gun control regimes.
