We tuned in after the harassment began, but French Ambassador to the United States Gérard Araud won the adulation and respect of European-style gun control supporters Wednesday night, despite the fact that his three-part tweet on the subject was missing the second part.

Perhaps Part 3 is actually Part 2, and there is no third part. In any case, Second Amendment supporters and “NRA fans” agreed that they didn’t want to emulate France’s model of gun control.

It’s probably in poor taste to speculate about the coordinated terrorist attacks on Paris so soon after they occurred, but there’s no arguing that the French are hitting back hard, and proudly doing so without bullets.
