The Eagles of Death Metal: “Did your French gun control stop a single person from dying?”

From Controversial Times:

The Eagles of Death Metal got a first person view at what madmen are capable of when Islamic terrorists opened fire inside the Bataclan theater in Paris as they played a concert.

During an interview with French media, lead singer Jesse Hughes made his thoughts perfectly clear.

“Did your French gun control stop a single person from dying at the Bataclan? If anyone can answer yes, I’d like to hear it, because I don’t think so,” said Hughes.

“I think the only thing that stopped it was some of the bravest men that I’ve ever seen in my life charging head-first into the face of death with their firearms. I know people will disagree with me, but it just seems like God made men and women, and that night guns made them equal. I think the only way my mind has been changed is that maybe that until nobody has guns everybody has to have them,” he said.


The part about the attacks and gun control starts at around the 15:45 mark in this video:

This isn’t the first time the group has talked about the attack. Earlier this year, they sat down with Vice for an in-depth discussion about Paris:
