Eagles of Death Metal Frontman: ‘Did Your French Gun Control’ Stop Anyone From Being Killed at Bataclan in Paris?
In a recent interview with French iTélé, Hughes said that French gun laws did nothing to help the victims.
“Did your French gun control stop a single [expletive] person from dying at the Bataclan?” Hughes said to the interviewer…
“I know people will disagree with me, but it just seems like God made men and women, and that night guns made them equal,” he added. “I hate it that it’s that way. I think the only way that my mind has been changed is that maybe that until nobody has guns everybody has to have them.”

Jim Treacher of the Daily Caller adds this:
You don’t have to agree with Jesse Hughes, but I hope you don’t dismiss him. Unless you’ve survived a terror attack, you don’t know what he’s going through. I know I don’t. And I don’t know if I’d ever be able to get back up on a stage where I was almost butchered by Muslim terrorist bastards. He insists he’s not being brave, but I respectfully disagree.
I’ve been a fan of EODM since Peace, Love, Death Metal. I’m glad we’ve got people like Jesse Hughes in the world. I hate the malignant filth who killed all those people and tried to kill him, and I’m glad he’s standing up for the freedom to rock. The freedom to fight back.
