At a campaign stop in Las Vegas on Monday, Republican 2016 frontrunner and former reality TV star Donald Trump told a crowd of supporters that things would have gone differently if he’d been in Paris on the night of the terror attacks that killed 130 people last month.
Ring Wing Watch quoted the real estate mogul, who said, “If a few of those people that are now dead, if a few of those people had guns strapped to their ankles or strapped to their waists, you wouldn’t have the problem, right?”
“If I were there, I’m licensed to carry, I will tell you this, if I were there, if somebody were there, if we had some firepower in the opposite direction, those people would’ve been gone,” he said.
It’s not the first time the Republican presidential front runner has claimed he would personally stop terrorists.
“You look at Paris, no guns, nothing. And you look at California, no guns,” Trump said earlier this month. “I can tell you one thing, if I’m in there and I have a handgun, we’re going down shooting. We’re going to knock ’em out. Okay? One way or the other.”
