PARIS -- French lawmakers voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to ban the wearing of face-covering veils in public spaces, as Europe toughens its approach to integrating Muslim immigrant communities.
On the eve of Bastille Day, when France celebrates the birth of what was to become a staunchly secular republic, the 577-seat National Assembly lower house voted by 335 votes to one for a total ban.
The bill will now go to the Senate in September, but opponents of the ban in its proposed form worry that it will eventually be overturned by the judges of the Constitutional Council, Frances highest legal body.

“...French lawmakers voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to ban the wearing of face-covering veils in public spaces...”
Same should be done in the US if only for security reasons. Or are we waiting for one of those black-clad figures to go BOOOOOOM! in a crowded mall before we take action?
This is actually a French jobs creation bill....because about 100,000 Renaults are gonna get burned, and will need to be replaced..
IMHO completely covering ones face is a danger to society. Anyone could do anything hidden like that.
This should get interesting. I suspect that French (muslim) “yutes” are going to be talking their anger out on defenseless Citroens, Peugeots and Renaults.
Talking = taking

For whatever reason (not conscious choice IIRC), I stumbled on an episode of “mall cops” on TLC a couple weeks ago. The mall security guards were stopping people wearing hooded costumes, said they had a “no hoods” policy. But not stopping those with burqas, etc. Seemed to be a double-standard to me.

It is called fear.
