Eagles of Death Metal Singer Changes Position on Gun Control Following Paris Jihad

It was during an Eagles of Death Metal concert that and Islamic jihad attack erupted in Paris in November 2014. At that time, lead singer Jesse Hughes was all for gun control. However, after that night, he began to rethink his position.

In an emotional interview, Hughes cried as he recalled the attack that left 89 dead at the concert hall.

In speaking about gun control, Hughes said, “Did your French gun control stop a single person from dying at the Bataclan?”

“And if anyone can answer ‘yes’,” he added, “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 I’ve ever seen in my life, charging head first into the face of death with their firearms.”

Hughes had previously held to an anti-gun position, but following that night, he claims that the experience changed his position.

I’m glad that Mr. Hughes has changed his position. I’m not happy that it took an experience like this to do it.

This is only one of many stories that could be told of people who have had their minds changed when the reality that we live in a dangerous world rudely awakens them.

We saw sheriffs and police chiefs, even some who enforce unconstitutional gun laws, across our own nation begin to call for armed citizens to take out those who seek to commit mass murder.

This is going on in other countries, as well.

Guns in the News reports:

Even in Israel, Public Security Minister, Gilad Erdan, conceded on Monday that “… citizens, skilled in the use of guns, are needed… in the fight against terrorism.”

HE CONTINUED, “There is no way to stop every terrorist attack, because terrorists do not need an explosives laboratory… a knife is enough for them.”

The inescapable conclusion is that modern politicians, here and there, will continue to spend most of their time worrying only about themselves, as all of Western Civilization cluelessly spirals into the dustbin of history. In the interim, the rest of us, dismissing what they say, need to take firm control of our own lives, providing our own protection, and steadfastly managing our own destinies, never waiting around for someone else, some mythical governmental agency, that “really cares” to “solve our problems.”

Expecting to be “protected” from evils and dangers that lurk everywhere has always been naive and foolish.

Today, it is suicidal!

Indeed it is! Still, there are those in our own country who would seek to have us disarmed before our enemies while they leave the door wide open for our enemies to enter. It’s treasonous and it’s dangerous. Now, what will we do about it my fellow Americans?
