Eagles Of Death Metal’s Jesse Hughes Apologizes For Controversial March For Our Lives Comments

Eagles Of Death Metal’s Jesse Hughes previously made headlines after he shockingly said the youth led March For Our Lives gun control movement was “pathetic and disgusting” in a series of deleted social media posts. Now, he has shared a new Instagram video to apologize for his comments. You can watch that below:

A post shared by Jesse Hughes (@fatherbadass) on

Hughes said the following [transcribed by Loudwire]:

“Recently I made some posts on Instagram that did not communicate how I feel about a variety of topics. What I’d intended to be a statement about the highjacking by any side of the aisle of the beautiful agenda of the movement of our nation’s youth came off seeming like a mean-spirited attack and slight of the youth themselves and even a personal attack of its leadership. I wanted to be clear, I never wanted that to happen. I never intended to impugn the youth of America and this beautiful thing they accomplished.”

“I am truly sorry. I did not mean to hurt anyone or cause any harm. As someone who has watched their friends shot in front of their eyes and seen people killed that they loved, I should’ve handled this a lot more maturely and responsibly and I did not do that and I messed up. And I hope that you are able to forgive me, but please know that I did not mean to do what it seems like it was I was doing.”

Hughes became a mass shooting survivor himself, after terrorists killed 89 people during Eagles Of Death Metal’s November 2015 concert in Paris.

All That Remains’ Phil Labonte Says He “Applauds” Eagles Of Death Metal’s Jesse Hughes For Speaking Out On The Gun Control Movement

Earlier today, Eagles Of Death Metal’s Jesse Hughes made headlines after he shockingly said the youth led March For Our Lives gun control movement was “pathetic and disgusting” in a series of deleted social media posts. Now, All That Remains’ Phil Labonte, who is a gun advocate, has commented saying he “applaud(s)” Hughes for speaking out. Hughes is of course a mass shooting survivor himself, after living through a terrorist attack that left 89 people dead during Eagles Of Death Metal’s November 2015 concert in Paris.

Labonte previously shared these other posts about the movement as well:

Here’s a quick montage of some shooting classes I’ve taken. These were all with Ian at @runenationllc. We are planning to do some more stuff this spring so keep an eye out. When I say you need to get training I’m not just running my mouth. I’m always trying to better my handling of fire arms. And as an aside, I know some people are worried about responsible people owning firearms. When it comes to safety and qualification I have a solid amount of knowledge and my fair share of experience. Here’s a partial list; I have taken shooting classes, put in hours in the classroom learning about firearms law, spent two weeks at the rifle range in USMC boot camp, taken apart and put back together most of the firearms I own, I have 4 copies of my finger prints and photo on file with the ATF due to my 4 separate NFA items, I have no misdemeanor or felony arrests on my record, I have family members and friends who have and have had, up to and including, top secret clearance with the federal government. (I mention that because I always assumed they look into you if you’re around ppl w that kind of clearance, maybe they don’t, I dunno) So I am the very guy who would be called a “responsible” gun owner. It’s getting warmer guys, time to hit the range and brush up your skills. Be safe and get some training!

This news comes after Labonte posted a YouTube clip to show people the types of firearms he thinks they “need”, including: AR-15s, shotguns, etc.:

All That Remains’ Phil Labonte Offers His Thoughts On Gun Control

All That Remains’ Phil Labonte, who is a libertarian that has voiced his support for gun rights in the past, has offered his thoughts on gun control in the wake of the recent school shooting in Parkland, Florida. You can see what he had to say in the below video:

Labonte said the following:

“The debate’s frustrating, at least on the Internet, because you’ve got people that don’t know what they’re talking about saying, ‘Do something.’ Well, what is the ‘something’? If it’s just to pass laws, what are you gonna do? What’s the law? So people say, ‘Well, ban the AR-15 [assault rifle].’ Well, [the gunman in the] Virginia Tech [shooting], he used handguns, and there was an assault weapons ban when Columbine was done, and those are just two right off the top of my head that I know they didn’t use an AR-15.

So then people say, ‘Well, [ban the] semiautomatics. No one needs a rifle. They’re for the military.’ Well, most of your handguns are semiautomatic — most of the modern handguns. Sure, there are revolvers out there, but the vast majority of handguns that people carry or have in their home for self-defense, they’re semiauto. And again, Virginia Tech and Coumbine — semiautomatic handguns. A semiautomatic pistol is gonna be able to do the same thing that a semiautomatic rifle is gonna be able to do.

So you try to talk about it and explain that to people, and the only thing they wanna hear is, ‘Okay, we’re gonna do something.’ But what is that something? If the ‘something’ is you wanna ban a certain type of gun, it’s not gonna fix anything, it’s not gonna stop the problems that we have with people attacking soft-target schools and stuff.

“One of the things that drives me nuts about [the latest Florida shooting] is everything failed. The FBI failed, and there was a police officer who was armed on the campus. He wasn’t there. The kid got his guns legally. What do you do when everything goes wrong?

“I don’t know that this is gonna help anyone, help their opinion, but if you’re talking about doing something, look, if you’re serious about it, you’re gonna have to be able to amend the Constitution, you’re gonna have to get rid of the Second Amendment, you’re probably gonna have to get rid of 350 million guns,” he continued. “It’s not gonna happen. You’re not gonna get people to turn in their guns.

People talk about Australia and their confiscation, their buyback, whatever the program… you wanna call it. I think it’s something like two-thirds of the people in Australia just kept their guns and kept quiet about it. I suppose if they go and shoot, they go out in the outback, in the desert or whatever, if they do. I don’t know how they get their ammo or whatever, but they’re still out there. And in America, where there’s way more people and there’s way more guns, you’re gonna have results that you’re less than happy with.

“I’m not saying that I know the answer, ’cause I don’t,” he added. “But I do know that there are people out there that have ideas that are good and worth listening to, and they’re usually people that understand guns a little bit, there’s people that are actually looking for a solution and understand.

A semi-auto is a semi-auto. If you ban an AR-15, it’s not gonna do anything. And just passing a law just to pass a law isn’t a good idea, especially one that weakens the Bill Of Rights. I think the Bill Of Rights is important. The government has been doing too many things that infringe on people’s rights, and that’s not just about the Second Amendment.

“I’m sure if you follow me on Twitter or on Facebook, you’ve seen me talk about civil asset forfeiture and how horrible I think that program is. I’m not a fan of the Patriot Act. I don’t like the NSA spying. I don’t like the idea of the federal government being able to just snatch up people without due process.

And I don’t think that empowering the government to just confiscate guns just because is a good idea. And I understand that nowadays, or specifically now, although it’s not a popular opinion.”
