Traveling with guns in transit through Paris France
As often is the case at this age my mind wanders
I am curious, best as I can tell getting to C.A.R. requires transit through Paris so I was wondering
Just how much of a problem would traveling through Paris be >
I mean, they really don't much care for Americans so I am concerned as to how they might feel about armed Americans?
I could live with loosing a gun while traveling, that's part of the risk, but, to loose one to the French would really be a problem for me, personally.,
So, anyone have much information on this?
