    Default [International] Confiscation order in France

    Confiscation order.jpg

    Sombody's translation:

    "Local police and gendarmerie forces will carry out the confiscation and deliver receipts mentioning the date of the confiscation, type and number of seized weapons, information of the identity of the legal owner and [his] corresponding [firearm] permit numbers.
    > This confiscation will be applicable for a period of 6 months, which it can be renewed, and after which the firearms should be returned to their owners.
    > Special categories[?] and agents of the State authorized to keep and bear firearms will be exempted from the confiscation of their service weapons. [Service weapons of state agents will not be confiscated].
    > Local police forces will be responsible for storage and security of the stored weapons.
    > Operational orders will be given to you in the next communications.
    > /signed/
    > Christophe Castaner
    "

    This is floating around the web today. Apologies if not legit. 8th week of yellow vest riots over there.

    I have no idea if it is true, but history has plenty of examples of governments resorting to this solution. Recent history too. As goes Venezuela, so may go France.

    It's not like the govt. is going to keep the confiscated firearms.

    I wasn’t aware that the French were permitted privately owned firearms.

    Well, the yellow vest protest is about to turn into a shooting war. It will now be time for the police to choose a side.

    This is desperation on Macron’s part. He is trying to preempt an armed rebellion before it can organize. Unfortunately for him, they are organized already.

    Firearms are allowed under strict circumstances. But no owning guns in Nato calibers. Their AR-15's are actually chambered in 222 Rem. 9x21 is also popular in handguns. 5.56 and 9x19 are verboten.
