Fighting through the tears, lead singer Jesse Hughes shares with French media his thoughts on the night of the Paris terror attacks. Him and the ‘Eagles of Death Metal’ are back in Paris to finish the show they never got to.
The Eagles of Death Metal return to Paris to finish the concert that was cut short by radical Islamic extremists (see BREAKING: Yes, Paris Terrorist Attacks Look to be Islamic. Now Developing…). Leader singer Jesse Hughes was fighting through his tears to talk about it, until the interviewer tried to score some political points by bringing up gun control.

“I think the only thing that stopped it was some of the bravest men that I’ve ever seen charging head-first into the face of death with their firearms.
“I know people will disagree with me but it just seems that God created men and women and that night guns made it equal, and I hate it that it is that way. I think the only way that my mind has been changed is that maybe until nobody has guns everybody has to have them.
