‘Did your French gun control stop a single f***ing person from dying at the Bataclan?’

16 Feb 2016 – Jesse Hughes, frontman of the Eagles of Death Metal band, has hit out at EU gun control laws as the anniversary of the Bataclan terrorist mass murders approaches.

Speaking to French TV station iTele in an emotional 19-minute interview, Hughes said: “Did your French gun control stop a single fucking 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 head-first into the face of death with their firearms.”

He added, in an English-language transcript prepared by left-wing British newspaper The Guardian: “I think the only way that my mind has been changed is that maybe that until nobody has guns everybody has to have them. Because I’ve never seen anyone that’s ever had one dead, and I want everyone to have access to them, and I saw people die that maybe could have lived, I don’t know.”

The Eagles of Death Metal are an ironically named band who don’t actually play death metal. They were playing in Paris’ Bataclan theatre on the night that Islamic terrorists burst in and murdered 89 people in cold blood, using illegally-acquired AK-47 rifles and grenades.

The EU proposed a ban on civilian ownership of semi-automatic rifles and pistols as a result of the murders, while freely admitting that a ban on legal ownership would have no effect upon terrorists or other criminals.

    Reminds me of the talk by one of the parents of a Columbine survivor, who was very pro gun and didn’t blame guns for their son being killed, but the monsters who committed the acts. Whenever some tragedy like this happens, there are always voices who ask: but what if we had the means to protect ourselves? Maybe not so many would have died?

    Of course their statements are completely ignored by the media with an agenda and only the pro-disarmament parents are interviewed.

    The gun control laws currently under consideration will NOT prevent a repeat of Paris in any other Euro citizen. Most states already have a ban on fully auto or semi auto and the planned ban on deactivated weapons will hit collectors, re-enactors and air softers hard. Tax revenues will be hit as will state benefits from the increase in unemployed.
    And yet such illegal weapons will still be brought in from outside the Schengen zone because the borders are worse than porous.

    you can bet world leaders and polititions are protected by armed body guards yet they will let us face our heaveley armed enemy i have always been against us being armed but i have now changed my mind because with so many jehadists getting into europe and england we are defenseless and have no means of defending our familys and our selfs i beleive we should be armed and trained up in case civil war breaks out because im really worried because i feel it will happenas a farther and grand father i feel helpless to protect them like so many others do
