After Paris Attack, Band Frontman Says Gun Control Didn’t Save A Single Life

From Newsweek:

In a tearful interview to French TV channel iTélé, the 43-year-old said: “Did your French gun control stop a single f***ing 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.

“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 added. “And I hate it that it’s that way. I think … that maybe until nobody has guns everybody has to have them.
