  • Machine Gun Attack in Corsica

    I have not seen this reported here in the US, I held off posting it for a few days,
    The shop front of a Muslim butchers on the French island of Corsica was sprayed by machine gun fire on Tuesday night, as communal tensions on the island remained high.

    No one was injured in the shooting, which occurred at night while the shop in the southern town of Popriano was closed, according to reports.

    The shop that stands in the town centre was hit "by fire from heavy weaponry", the local prosecutor Eric Bouillard said. According to I-Tele there were around 30 bullet holes in the in the shop front.

    The prosecutor believes an assault rifle was likely used in the attack and added the Muslim butcher who owned the shop had "no history" to explain why he was attacked.

    There were also reports that a kebab outlet nearby was also hit by the gunfire.

    These things happen, if you allow everyone to own a gun. Gun shooting are more common in countries that has the gun rights. Government has to take mental stability test before issuing a permit, rather than allowing everyone to own it.

      Yes because Corsica is absolutely full of guns. Much less AKs or SMGs like the kind likely used here. I doubt it was actually a machine gun.

      You do realize what you're advocating is less strict gun control than what was already in place here, right? Lot of good it did too.

        Just think how few posts we would get here if the Posters had to pass a mental stability test!

          How about just banning the mentally unstable?

          And the government doesn't allow everyone to own one.

              Corsicans and Sardinians, you could add Sicilians as well, are a clannish bunch that are distrustful of outsiders. It probably would not take a lot to precipitate something like that.

                  So you believe that machine guns are legal on the island of Corsica?

                          I had heard that affairs in Sicily had grown more civilized over the last three decades or so. Are you suggesting that that is not actually the case?

                            Organised crime has become more PR savvy and lowered their profile but as CNN recently pointed out

                            just because the mobsters are relatively inconspicuous doesn't mean they're at home knitting.

                            The Mafia continues to exercise a baleful influence on Sicily and beyond, from its periodic killings, to the protection money -- pizzo -- many hotels, restaurants and shops are forced to pay, and the corrupt investment climate that helps to keep businesses away and keep Sicily relatively poor among the Italian regions.

                            Tourists will hardly ever be touched directly by mob violence, which tends to go on in the poorer parts of town that are the Mafia's strongholds.

                              As was Napoleon himself; he was also far from happy about the French taking over Corsica in younger years, until he saw were his fortunes lay. The Buonaparte's, led by the matriarch Letizia, were thoroughly opportunistic and were quite versed at exploiting the winds of change. Although, if you are familiar with Napoleone (his real name), he almost lost his head in the waning days of the French Revolution thanks to his association with Robespierre et al. His brother Giuseppe yanked his chestnuts out of the fire with literally less then six hours to go (as I recall) before Napy would have to climb the steps of the guillotine.
