Nah, with a name like "Jean Elek" I doubt it.
Disgruntled employee.

Apparently he's been unemployed for a few years, after losing his job.

BTW, France has emanated, in the last years, more and more restrictive laws about gun ownership.

There is NOTHING like CCW for self defence in France: only policemen are allowed to carry guns. Civilian MUST transport them in a closed bag and UNLOADED.

No AR15 in .223R, no any military firearm chambered in the original caliber.

After an extreme right activist tried to shoot Chirac, in 2002, with a .22 LR rifle, also .22 LR has been restricted.

The results are self-evident: restricting will NOT prevent such acts like the ones are happening in Le Mans...

Seriously, I hope those kids are all OK!



Seriously, I would NOT make too many jokes about GIGN operators: they are all but a "white flag" type of guys...

Do they use those guns that look real but when you pull the trigger it pops out a white flag on a stick?
Thats the plan isnt it. Scare'm with the scary looking gun, if that doesnt work THEN you can surrender.

the french are not well liked in this country(usa) because of there policies and government ideas. GIGN (who ever the fuck these guys are) are professionals, they command respect. fance as country doesn't. has weak military, the people are extremely rude(who really cares), they don't pull there wait in the UN. there best and most sucessful military unit is the french foreign legion. may i point out foreign.

It is actually, one would have thought that France itself would have surrendered.

GIGN stands for Group de Intervention de la Gendarmerie Nationale (Group of Intervention of the National Gendarmerie... a military AND police corp).

Read here: http://www.specialoperations.com/Foreign/France/GIGN/default.htm

Notice this:

It is important to note that GIGN is widely regarded as having some of the best firearms training in the world. It is for this reason that many of the world's special operations and counterterrorist units conduct exchange programs with the GIGN.

I've been in training, in my unit and for VERY short time, with the GIS, the antiterror/special intervention unit in Italy.

The above quoted messages means that GIGN trains with other unit (and sometime ACT wearing a different uniform in order to make experience and not to involve his own govt...) such as the British 22nd rgt. SAS, the Italian GIS, the German GSG9, and so on.

Curiously they are the only one that keep in their weapon panoplia a revolver: the .357 Mag. Manhurin MR73, 4" barrel. It is an EXCELLENT french designed revolver. I'd like to have it in my vault much more (sorry, nothing personal...) than any Colt or S&W.
