In the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris, Trump said:
"When you look at Paris, toughest gun laws in the world, nobody had guns but the bad guys. Nobody had guns. And they were just shooting them one by one, and then they broke in and had a big shootout and ultimately killed the terrorists. And I will tell you what — you can say what you want, if they had guns, if our people had guns, if they were allowed to carry, it would have been a much, much different situation."
Gerard Araud, the French ambassador to the U.S., tweeted that Trump's call for more guns in France was "repugnant in its lack of any human decency."
