PARIS (AP) — Investigators working to understand why a 20-year-old French citizen born in the Russian republic of Chechnya went on a stabbing rampage in central Paris detained the dead suspect’s parents and a friend Sunday, French officials said.

 

Counterterrorism investigators want to know if the assailant, identified by Chechnya’s leader as Khamzat Azimov, had help or co-conspirators. The attacker killed a 29-year-old man and wounded four other people with a knife before police fatally shot him Saturday night.

 

The suspect was on a police watchlist for radicalism, a judicial official not authorized to speak publicly about the case told The Associated Press. But he had a clean criminal record and did not know his victims, Interior Ministry spokesman Frederic de Lanouvelle said.

Witnesses reported hearing the man shouting “Allahu akbar,” the Arabic phrase for “God is great,” during the attack that happened at about 9 p.m. in a lively area near the Opera Garnier.

I am still baffled as to what benefit does it bring to those who get radicalized? Killing/Converting people is only going to unite the world against Islam. The whole religion will be at the losing end.

I guess the two dead includes the attacker himself killed by the police?

But if other people carried guns, nobody would be dead as well.

Of course terrorists are an edge case but in general yes, considering how many criminal threats are ended by simply displaying a weapon. Been there multiple times.

Good luck with your argument.  You have never come across a gun lover like this before!

Doesnt seem to be doing much to slow them down.  People think of these guys as martyr/heros of the cause.

 

 

As far as the other comments, can we stick to the topic please?  Not a gun debate.

Doubt it. There have been so many terror attacks in France that I can't name them all. Europeans are simply too docile to care.

Islam is just evil and a plague to humanity. Christianity, which is largely what the USA is about for a long time now, is simply not compatible with Islam because Islam is pretty much the devil's work and Christianity is God's. they are opposed.

 

but liberals won't acknowledge that truth as they call it "racist" etc when you tell the truth like that.

Sigh. Flip it around and that is what they say. Your argument is circular and not based on re- oh, nevermind. Praise Jesus.

 

Their ridiculous religion is fake, but mine is real because it is real!

My grandfather Ramon survived a knifing back in the early 1900's.  All I know of it came long after the fact. But it caused me a great deal of sadness.

What they want is to make Muslims in the west more radicalized, they don't want them to be pro-LGBT or have secular views.The only way to do that is to fuel hatred towards the whole Muslim community in the west so they will feel alienated which will make it easier to recruit them. They love it when more people have negative views about Muslims because it favors them in the end.

Defensive Use of Guns

 

Defensive use of guns by crime victims is a common occurrence, although the exact number remains disputed (Cook and Ludwig, 1996; Kleck, 2001a). Almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals, with estimates of annual uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million (Kleck, 2001a), in the context of about 300,000 violent crimes involving firearms in 2008 (BJS, 2010).

Having read the Quran, I whole heartily agree, it is evil. But Christianity has had its moments.

Waste of time.

 

Give a maker some polyphthalamide, G10,  Zytel, certain carbon fiber etc. and they'll make you a very deadly, and mostly undetectable, blade. I have a couple - they've gone commercial. Now include  zirconium dioxide ceramic, which is even used in kitchen blades.

 

Hand-hewed obsidian (volcanic glass) or flint edged weapons have been made since the stone age. And found metal scrap can be turned into a blade in minutes.

 

Etc.

 

Knife bans are mental masturbation because of

 

1) ease of manufacture, 

 

2) the political class doesn't want to address the main cause of the problem; bulk immigrantion from places whose culture and norms are incompatable with their new "homes",

 

3) invasion by immigration.

They just need to form the NKA (National Knife Association) and sell everyone a knife. Research should be made into more tactical knives that can also spray acid while using the best material of damascus steel. They can also use pyramid schemes taken from Cutco. ??? :shifty:
