Lucky to survive.

Jesse Hughes, lead singer of the Eagles of Death Metal — the band that was performing at the Bataclan in Paris, France, when terrorists attacked the venue back in November — said in an interview this week that the horrific experience changed his mind on gun control.
“I think the only way my mind has been changed is maybe that until nobody has guns everybody has to have them, because I don’t ever want to see anything like this ever happen again,” an emotional Hughes told French outlet iTele. “I saw people die that maybe could have lived.”
He also questioned whether French gun control laws did anything to save the lives of concert attendees when chaos broke out on Nov. 13.
“Gun control kind of doesn’t have anything to do with it, but if you want to bring it up I’ll ask you: Did your French gun control stop a single f**king 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.”
He continued, “I think the only thing that stopped it was some of the bravest men that I have ever seen in my life charging head first into the face of death with their firearms.”
