JohnCreasy posted Gun/Self-Defense Laws on the France forum on October 23, 2014:
I'm considering moving out of the US within the next couple of years, and need some answers about firearms, as well as the laws pertaining to the use of guns in self-defense. What types of firearms are allowed? Any restrictions on types, capacity, etc? Are you allowed to act in defense of your life? I have several other questions, but these should do as a start.

Does anyone can recommend an international mover? We are moving back to France from Jersey City, NJ. We will pay for the moving, so a good and economic one is great. Thanks

A reader commented on the Expat Report Culture Shock in Courbevoie, France
Do you have any advice or thoughts about culture shock you would like to share?
It's really easy to know about another culture these days. Everything is knowable by doing your homework before you go. (Continue)

What type of individual moves to a country, then refuses to learn the language, then complains about said country? An appalling post showing a dreadful attitude - the term "ugly American" comes instantly to mind.
A reader replied recently with:
I read your comments and wanted to reply. I have been here for a year and moved here for my French husband (who is wonderful), but it has been much of the same experience you wrote about. It has been over a year and I did find good employment quickly but everything else is sub par. I agree with you shopping and want to suggest to try to go to Germany where there is much more of a selection and things are priced more reasonably. I think there are also "American" and "UK" stores in Munich and Nuremberg if you want to purchase something from your home. I hope everything gets better for you and try not to take other people's bashing your comments to heart. Feeling isolated is tough enough, none the less a forum that is not supportive. Try to find expat groups in your area too. There aren't any in mine - LOL!

Kora replied to the thread Marseillan on the France forum:
Kora initially posted:
Hello everyone, I can't see any recent activity here but hopefully, someone will answer my question regarding Marseillan in Languedoc-Roussillon. Are there any English-speaking expats in that area? Is there much to do over there or it's necessary to drive to Montpellier for cultural events or entertainment? How about locals? Are they friendly and approachable? Thanks beforehand for answering :) Kora from Canada

Thank you very much, Elleny, for your comment :) Hopefully, someone who is familiar with Marseillan will have a peek here as well and will reply to my post.

Marseillan doesn't ring a bell, sorry, but for a few days in August, I had a grand time exploring the area called L'Herault by LOCAL BUS. (Call me quirky, I just don't ike driving on foreign turf.) Locals are welcoming and enjoy using their smattering of English. I ran into plenty of Anglos. One bus driver spoke a bunch of languages, including English. At the tourist office in Montpellier (delightful city, take a guided walking tour in English) I picked up a digest-size magazine published quarterly in English -- that could be just what you need. To find it, carefully browse the copious literature displays at the office.The bus hub for the area is Clement l'Herault, a pretty town with seductive shops and nice cafes. I hope I'll get a chance to blog about my bus jaunts to Lodeve and Lamallou-les-Bains,...
