Paris is reeling from today's massacre at the offices of the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo. 12 people, including two police officers, editors, and cartoonists, were killed by at least three masked men armed with automatic weapons. No one has claimed responsibility, but a number of tweets from extremist groups indicate that the paper was targeted because of cartoons and other satirical pieces featuring the prophet Mohammed.

The gunmen remain at large. The Times reports that the attackers referred to the Prophet Muhammad, saying he was “avenged."

Soon after the massacre, the NYPD issued a statement reminding New Yorkers that New York City "has the most sophisticated counterterrorism capability in the U.S. There are standing contingency plans in place to adjust police deployments based on any unfolding situation in the world. That includes how we use and where we position and deploy specialized police resources. The NYPD has a Detective stationed in Paris who has been coordinating with NYPD and we will continue to closely monitor the situation."

NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton told reporters, "Those three individuals aren’t amateurs. They clearly were methodical. They knew what they were doing. This a very significant escalation of activity that we are certainly going to be mindful of as we go about continuing to protect the City of New York."

There is no specific threat against NYC related to the Paris attack, but NYPD counterterrorism chief John Miller said the department will "reconfigure" its deployment to landmarks and other high-profile locations. Miller also commented on the attackers' apparent training, saying, "These appear to be individuals who are heavily armed and clearly arrived with a plan. They walk when they need to walk, they run when they need to run."

Speaking at today's NYPD Swearing-In Ceremony in Queens today, Mayor Bill de Blasio addressed the attack, telling the officers present, "The eyes of the world are on Paris—a heinous terrorist attack—goes at the very fabric of a free society. This was an attack on those who speak freely. It was an attack on the news media. It was an attack on freedom of expression. It was an attack on the values we hold dear and that you’re preparing to defend.

"So, it’s a sober moment. It’s a difficult moment, but it’s also a moment to take stock of how important the work is that you’re about to do. Our thoughts and our prayers are with the families of those who were lost today. At least 12 individuals killed - at least two of them police officers who are defending lives of people who are simply expressing their views in a free society. So, we lost some heroes today. We lost some people who are trying to do good in this world, against a terrorist threat that tries to undermine everything we hold dear."

And President Obama issued a statement saying, "Time and again, the French people have stood up for the universal values that generations of our people have defended. France, and the great city of Paris where this outrageous attack took place, offer the world a timeless example that will endure well beyond the hateful vision of these killers. We are in touch with French officials, and I have directed my administration to provide any assistance needed to help bring these terrorists to justice."

And then there's Fox & Friends, where KT McFarland posited that "really strict gun control policy" in France contributed to the attack, and claimed that France's "politically correct " policies that treat everyone equally were also to blame. Elisabeth Hasselbeck then chimed in, suggesting that de Blasio also threatens security here at home by painting the NYPD "with a racist brush." Watch it here, unless you've gone over your bile quota for the day.
