Lanegan tweeted Hughes, “@jesseEODM. When I think of the good times we’ve had in the past it fucks my heart to see how far off the rails you’ve gone. Come back bro.”

Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes ripped the March For Our Lives on Instagram. Hughes survived a shooting attack by ISIS terrorists at an EODM show in Paris in November 2015. Paris has very strict gun laws that did not prevent the attack. Hughes is a proponent of the second amendment.
“Obviously….The best thing to do to combat chronic abusers and disregarders of the law(like the law against Murder) is to……..pass another Law!…..Genius!!!…… but before we pass this law we’re going to denigrate the memory and curse ourselves by exploiting the death of 16 of our fellow students for a few Facebook likes and some media attention….and look how well civil rights abuses as it concerns firearms helped to protect me and my friends in Paris!!!!!
This almost sounds like the plan of like a kid maybe like a high school student….!. Oh wait that’s right…. The Whitney Houston song about letting the children lead the way wasn’t actually had operating paradigm for life…..And when the truth don’t line up with your bullshit narrative just hold your breath and stamp your feet and refused to except it…. then take multiple days off of school playing hooky at the expense of 16 of your classmates blood….!…. it might be funny if it wasn’t so pathetic and disgusting……
As the survivor of a mass shooting I can tell you from first-hand experience that all of you protesting and taking days off from school insult the memory of those who were killed and abuse and insult me and every other lover of liberty by your every action…..Long Live Rock’n’Roll….. and may everyone of these disgusting vile abusers of the dead live as long as possible so they can have the maximum amount of time to endure their shame….and be Cursed….”
Hughes also posted. “I can tell you right now that the actions of these misguided youth and evil communists is making me feel terrified… with every broadcast of a willing and complicit press I feel the wall of security that the Constitution provides being taken down bit by bit…..,” he wrote.
He later wrote, “I’ve made a rule and my musical life that everyone should check their politics at the door…… i’ve always believed in the motto I may not agree with what you’re saying but I’ll die for your right to say it. Saddens me to see so many not have this motto for the same….. but this is my Instagram for Rock’n’Roll and I think I’m going to keep it that way….. i’m going to start a second Instagram for where I shall put my political beliefs…. I love every lover of Rock’n’Roll and And every lover of Rock’n’Roll is welcome here check your politics at the door and I’ll start with myself…..!!!!!”
