Eagles of Death Metal Frontman: 'Did Your French Gun Control' Stop Anyone From Being Killed at Bataclan in Paris?

Jesse Hughes, the front man for the Eagles of Death Metal, was performing on stage when Islamic terrorists attacked and killed over 80 people in the Bataclan theater in Paris last November.

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.

"And if anyone can answer yes, I'd like to hear it, because 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."

"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."
