Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes calls for 'everyone to have guns' following Paris massacre

The frontman of the Eagles of Death Metal has called for universal access to guns following the Paris atrocities.

The rock band was performing in the Bataclan Theatre in Paris on November 13 when armed terrorists stormed the venue and shot into the crowd, killing 90 concert-goers.

Vocalist-guitarist Jesse Hughes, 43, told the French TV station iTele restrictions on guns in France had helped to enable the terrorists.

Hughes, who is an advocate for access to gun ownership, was asked if his views on gun controls had changed after the terror attacks. He said gun control “doesn’t have anything to do with it”.

The band will take to the stage at Paris' Olympia for the first time in Paris since the attacks on Tuesday night.

Survivors of the atrocity were given free invites to the gig.

The Bataclan theatre has been closed since the attack.
