“Did your French gun control stop a single f****** person from dying at the Bataclan?”

On November 13, 2015 a terrorist attack in Paris killed 130 people – 89 of them at the Bataclan concert hall where the band Eagles of Death Metal was performing that night.

The band felt it was a sacred duty to return to Paris and perform as a sign of defiance – not allowing “the bad guys to win.”

And while you may not be familiar with their music, or may not even like it all that much, Eagles of Death Metal’s Jesse Hughes told¬† French channel iTELE¬†that firearms were the equalizer that day.

“Did your French gun control stop a single f****** 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.”

The interview is below. You can watch the entire thing if you want.

  1. The guy is right, but .. no, I don’t really care to watch the interview. The important parts are available as txt, elsewhere, without having to suffer through an interview with a heavy metal ban lead singer. Ewww

  2. Eagles of Death Metal is not a metal band nor a death metal band. They are a blues rock or plain rock band.

    Their name was is satire – have a look at their wikipedia page.
