Well this was unexpected.
Jesse Hughes, frontman for Eagles of Death Metal, slammed gun control measures in an interview yesterday saying, “until nobody has guns, everybody has to have them.”

He also blamed France’s strict gun-control laws for the terror attack in November that left 130 dead and hundreds more wounded.

More of his interview via Newsweek:
“Did your French gun control stop a single f***ing person from dying at the Bataclan? 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 headfirst 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. “And I hate it that it’s that way. I think … that maybe until nobody has guns everybody has to have them.
“I want everyone to have access to them, and I saw people die that maybe could have lived, I don’t know.”
The band is back in Paris to finish the concert at the Bataclan where 89 of the 130 people were killed.
