That's sadly probably about to go up. Face it, with the Schengen Zone it's obviously really easy to move fully automatic AK-47's around Europe given the multiple attacks in France that used them over the last year or so. You're a fishing boat away from the Schengen Zone, and now on ISIS shit list, so expect the gun violence to go up as it did in France. The reality of things is that gun laws do not work on terrorists. France proves that.
As far as whether the presence of armed civilians inside the Bataclan Theater would have changed the outcome, it's common sense that it would have. That shooting could not have gotten worse, they killed over 100 people even resorting to systematic execution of hostages apparently. Well, in that case, chaos is good. Terrorists having to deal with people firing back are less deadly because they are less efficient.
Though Britain was not party to the Schengen Agreement it, like many other things, now falls under the EU and so applies to them- even though they weren't original parties to it (Stupidly, and maybe for its suicide also non-EU country Norway was a signatory, but that is an aside.) YorkshirePD, SV, et al Brits seem a little testy because they understand, won't admit, that they are, basically, have ceded their country to be controlled by bureaucrats, judges, etc in places like Brussels, Luxembourg, and Strasbourg and, in practice, ceded their country to various Muslims, yobs, neds, and general mayhem and decay (unless Russian oligarchs and Muslim oil "royalty" move in and prop up real estate prices, and football teams.) Also "self-defence" was prosecuted (now is, again, legal but much more proscribed than here, due to law change a few years back.) Firearms are restricted too, basically, the criminals or the rich, and politicians, what with their hunting and security forces, are the only ones allowed to have them. Why wouldn't they be a bit testy? Believe it or not (you can even find on the BBC) they ignored child sex rings, lest they "offend" Muslims. So some weird form of guilt, jealousy, etc want to inflict their woes, via online posts, on us? A sad deal, really. But what got Obama elected here, so I understand, but don't sympathize and agree. Much of what was great in Britain made our country and, formerly, many other countries great. The concept, now abandoned-or ceded- to bureaucrats in Europe, there, in most circumstances, of grand juries, double-jeopardy, self-defense, free speech, juries, are gone. Land of the Magna Carta now looks to some bureaucrat in Brussels looking forward to a long lunch, and maybe a dalliance, for guidance! And we are on this route, if we don't stop it! We have similar problems with immigration, malcontents, rioters, and politicians who seek to undermine the nation. But a larger country and, until recent times, enough local control to mitigate those issues. National Security Letters, open-borders, political-correctness, "hate" laws, NDAA, "Patriot" Acts, these super-secret global treaties (TPP etc etc?) Bad stuff. And I love Britain and the people (though visiting these days in some major cities one might not find as many "English".) I am one of the sole defenders that says their food and beer is GREAT! I know older Pakistanis, here in the US or UK, who says Pakistan was much better under the British (India then and then even post war) the legal and education system remained--- until the Saudi "schools" started with money made from "royals" educated at places like Sandhurst even and propped up by military sales (and criminal kick-backs- look it up even BBC covered it) and our Oil companies. And the places the Brits abandoned? Rhodesia? Burma? Ugh. Hell-holes (though, admittedly, the Brits were the best of the "colonizers." Should've stayed in some places though. Not here, unless you believe the LaRouche stuff hahaha.)
Therein, ends the rant.
ps: But for those interested here is the 'law' in the UK now with regard to Schengen. (Btw, isn't it cool, you Brits, how some simple coal and steel treaty and later just some "harmonizations" came to this, and what next? haha. Some spoke out even when it was going on. drip, drip, drip. Though it could go the opposite, now, what with the "refugee" invasion. Will be interesting to see if Germany can still get their new EU Reich or not? Or how the Muslims and economy come into play?
