The rocker Jesse Hughes, who survived the bloodbath in Paris, had a message for French lawmakers
“Did your French gun control stop a single [expletive] person from dying at the Bataclan?” Hughes said. “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.”
Hughes, who has vigorously advocated for unfettered gun ownership — even waving a gun at a friend in a documentary that was pulled from film festivals after the Nov. 13 attacks — told iTélé that, if anything, his experience had only strengthened his views.
“I know people will disagree with me, but it just seems like God made men and women, and that night guns made them equal,” he said. “I think the only way that my mind has been changed is that maybe that until nobody has guns everybody has to have them.”
He's spot on here. There's only so much France and other parts of Europe have to do to repair their legal systems, not just to allow self-defense properly, but also to ensure that proof burdens fall upon plaintiffs in a court case, and not the defendant. It's time his views were taken very seriously.
