Paris Massacre Band Eagles of Death Metal frontman: "Until nobody has guns everybody has to have them."

Did your French gun control stop a single fucking 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 head-first 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 said. “And I hate it that it’s that way. I think the only way that my mind has been changed is that maybe that until nobody has guns everybody has to have them. Because I’ve never seen anyone that’s ever had one dead, and I want everyone to have access to them, and I saw people die that maybe could have lived, I don’t know.” - - The Guardian

Kind of late for this 'Come to Jesus ' moment now.

With a gun you have a chance.
Without a gun you only have hope.
I'll take chance over hope every day no matter what.

NPR this morning had a lengthy interview with the bandmember, but somehow omitted this part, which is arguably the most newsworthy! But they did cover it in the online story. Is this a new tactic - mention it online to give themselves some cover, but not on air where the vastly greater LOFO audience might hear?
