I think these idiots think everything outside the US looks like an outside Parisian cafe in the fall sitting with Pierre, the French lover or a sleepy village in the mountains of Latin America where the children bring you coffee and pastries and they all know British English.The only thing I can add is that Paris is pretty dangerous, too. 8 dead in the Charlie Hebdo shootings in January, 2015. Later that day 4 jews were shot and killed at the Hypercacher kosher supermarket. In November that year there were bombings and shootings at the Stade de France that killed 131 and critically injured a hundred more, with over 400 injured total. The next year saw a terrorist hijack a truck and kill a bunch of people on the promenade in Nice. The same thing happened in Berlin, with 12 dead at the Christmas Market. 2016 also saw a major terrorist attack in Brussels, killing 32. Last year it was the turn for Strasbourg's Christmas Market - 5 dead. And what American snob gun banners simply don't know is that pure mass shootings in Europe are almost always done with legally owned firearms.
I could go on and on, but these places only look like something out of Disney.
