Eyewitness: Unarmed French Police Arrived at Terrorist Attack, Left

TTAG reader RA writes: “It’s unfortunate, but it is hard to stop a shooter when you have no weapon. From paragraph 9 of the CBS article: ‘Benoit Bringer, a journalist with Agence Premiere Ligne who saw the attack, told the iTele network he saw several masked men armed with machine guns. He said two officers arrived on bicycles, then — apparently unarmed — they left.'” It’s also worth noting that France has extremely stringent gun control laws.
