Three possible attack sites

It seems there may be three possible attack sites: a restaurant, a bar and outside the Stade de France. Details are very much confirmed at this stage.

and

iTele reports that President Hollande was in the Stade de France at the time of the attacks and had to be removed by security services.

Quite alarming, really. What the blazes is going on? Hard to imagine such a spate of violence could be the result of unrelated events.

I'm not going to blame the victims for their country's gun laws. Most concealed carry people wouldn't be able to respond to bombs and fully automatic weapons.

This does show that there are dangerous people still operating in the world and they are targeting what they feel are softer or easier targets for now. The French magazine is their sad excuse.
