Singer Of Band That Was Playing When Paris Attacks Erupted: ‘Until Nobody Has Guns, Everybody Should Have Them’
The carnage no doubt was still on the minds of the rock band “Eagles of Death Metal” as they returned to Bataclan Concert Hall to perform.
The group was performing in Paris and on stage at the Bataclan Concert Hall on the evening of November 13th, when their lives and the lives of hundreds of their fans took a tragic and sudden turn into history, as ISIS terrorists opened fired on the crown, killing 89 people, and wounding countless others.
The emotional scares were still evident as the band took center stage and frontman Jesse Hughes, took the opportunity to sound off at France’s restrictive gun control laws.
In an interview with a French TV network ahead of the return concert, Hughes emphasized that only the terrorists had guns that night until police arrived, and although the band escaped with their lives, their merchandise manager wasn’t that lucky.

Visibly intense Hughes asked; "Did your French gun control stop a single person from dying at the Bataclan? If anyone can answer yes, I’d like to hear it, because I don’t think so!"
He continued; "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. I think the only way my mind has been changed is that maybe that until nobody has guns everybody has to have them," he said.
Do you agree with what Jesse Hughes has to say about gun control?
