The lead singer for the Eagles of Death Metal, the group that was performing during the Bataclan massacre in Paris last year, has publicly supported gun rights.
That’s understandable, because he was a first-hand witness to how gun control laws leave people defenseless when only the bad guys are armed.
Jesse Hughes said that the massacre might not have occurred if the audience was armed.
This is where you should be slow clapping.
The singer also said that the France’s sickening gun control laws “had nothing to do with” the jihadist attack that killed 90.
“Until nobody has guns, everybody has to have them,” he added.
This is where you should be fast clapping.
While struggling to hold back tears, Hughes questioned whether or not gun control saved lives.
“I don’t think so. 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,” he said.
“I know people will disagree with me… but that night guns made them equal,” Hughes continued. “And I hate it that it’s that way.”
Hughes is a member of the NRA and a Trump supporter.
