US President Donald Trump has once again sparked anger in Europe, UK and France especially, with his gun law speech delivered during a meeting with National Rifle Association (NRA) in Dallas, Texas.

In another reference to terror attacks commited with Trucks and other vehicles, which in Nice alone left 86 dead and 458 injured, the President ironically said that "we are going to have to outlaw, immidietally, all vans and all trucks which are now the new form of death for the maniac terrorists".

The President mimicked the terrorists slowly killing their victims when in reality they were armed with automatic weapons and bombs. Each country can freely decide its own legislation on gun control.

"France is proud to be a safe country, where the buying and holding of firearms is strictly regulated".

"I recently read a story that in London, which has unbelievably tough gun laws, a once very prestigious hospital right in the middle is like a war zone for awful stabbing wounds", said Trump, who is scheduled to make his first presidential visit to the United Kingdom on July 13. They "said a lot about what he thinks of France and its values", he added.

Former French President Francois Hollande has two words for U.S. President Donald Trump's claim that gun-toting Parisians could have thwarted Islamic State attackers at Paris' Bataclan concert hall: "indecent and despicable".

Trump said: "If one employee or just one patron had a gun - or if one person in this room had been there with a gun, aimed at the opposite direction - the terrorists would have fled or been shot, and it would have been a whole different story". Boom! Come over here.

Mr Khan, who has previously clashed with Mr Trump over the mayor's response to terrorism, declined to comment on his latest remarks.

London suffered a spike in knife crime in the early part of this year, and the total number of murders during February and March exceeded that in NY. "Knives, knives, knives", he had said, accompanied with a stabbing motion.

"Yes, that's right, they don't have guns".

Relations with Prime Minister Theresa May cooled previous year after she criticised him for retweeting anti-Islam videos by a British far-right group. "They say it is as bad as a military war zone hospital".

The director of London's major trauma system, Dr. Karim Brohi, said in a statement that knife violence is indeed "a serious issue for London".

"Gunshot wounds are at least twice as lethal as knife injuries, and more hard to fix", Prof Brohi said in a statement on Saturday.

Britain's Government effectively banned handgun ownership in England, Scotland and Wales after a school shooting in Dunblane, Scotland in 1996.
