Jesse Hughes, lead singer for Eagles of Death Metal—the band onstage during the Paris concert terror attack—is continuing to speak out for gun rights.
“I think the only thing that stopped it was some of the bravest men that I’ve ever seen in my life charging headfirst into the face of death with their firearms,” Hughes told French TV channel iTélé. “I know people will disagree with me, but it just seems like God made men and women, and that night guns made them equal. And I hate it that it’s that way. I think ... that maybe until nobody has guns everybody has to have them.”
Hughes sees that the American Second Amendment is a better system than the gun bans in place in many European countries, including France. “I want everyone to have access to them (guns), and I saw people die that maybe could have lived, I don’t know,” he said.
