Amid the media swirl surrounding possible gun control measures after the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre just last month, many pro-gun advocates are speaking out. Musicians are no different. Zoltan Bathory, guitarist of Five Finger Death Punch, used his Facebook page to discuss his annoyance at the media and the concern that his guns will be confiscated by the government, despite the fact there is no evidence to back up that fear. Bathory writes:
"Let's talk about 'assault' rifles for a second. Anti-gun advocates in the media placing all the emphasis on the word 'ASSAULT' for a reason. It sounds menacing to those who don't know much about weapons, and this particular word also embodies the concepts of 'first strike' and 'aggression'... and the media just loooves that. The fact IS, however - a rifle is an inanimate object with no free will or intent on its own. It doesn't plan to assault anyone... So really, this is all just playing with words.... If I called my rifle a 'defensive rifle' - it wouldn't throw up the red flag - and in reality THAT'S WHAT IT IS. I have it for defensive measures so that's what it should be called. A 'defensive rifle.'"
Bathory goes on to defend the NRA (National Rifle Association) and says that everyone who supports their "constitutional rights" should educate the masses about guns to defend against the unfair "anti-gun" media. He then goes on to say a semi-automatic weapon is basically just like a musket.
"It's one bullet per one pressing on the trigger. Just like a musket... without you having to pour gunpowder in the barrel and drop a led ball in there - the semi auto gun does it all for you - but ONE at the time..."(continued)

I guess Allyson has never heard of Senator Feinstein, Vice President Biden, Senator Schumer or Rep. Dan Muhlbauer.
I suspect that is a death metal group. But, and here's a critical question, is it perhaps a melodic death metal group?
It does somehow color the fellow's comments... but then again I wouldn't expect his combo was called "Sweet Spring Morning Band" either...
My late favorite Aunt babysat all the members of Slipknot back when they were wee little tikes.
"I got no kick against modern jazz
Unless they try to play it too darn fast.
They lose the beauty of the melody
Until it sounds just like a symphony..."

Love the name “Killswitch Engage” for that type of group.
Arg! Hope that wasn’t her in the video for Vermillion Part 2.
But I’m sure they were nice boys...;)
I learned about the existence of melodic death metal just recently, so now I’m playing references to it to death, so to speak, but I know so little about these countless nowadays musical genres.
A few years ago when I was going to the company gym, the manager of it, a young rather mindless chick, played some awful music on the PA system, totally inappropriate, I thought, for a corporate gym environment, and disruptive to activities such as weight lifting because of the strong base and beats. “This is techno?”, I once said to her. “Oh no, this is house music!”, she replied. “House” music? What kinda house?
I like 5 Finger Death Punch’s re-make of the old Bad Company song, “Bad Company.” My son listens to them. They are pro-troops, pro-freedom, pro-America, and pro-gun.
Dave Mustaine, founder of “Megadeth” supported Rick Santorum.
That’s one intense band. Here’s their video for a song, which is a promo for prevention of suicide. Very, vergy graphic, but I suppose reflects the hell would-be suicides go through. The ending is positive.
It is, and they ain’t too bad either.
Yeah and Mayor Michael Bloomberg will not seek to sharply restrict supplies of painkillers at the citys emergency rooms to combat a rampant addiction problem. Haha
FFDP’s rendition of Bad Company is probably the best remake I’ve seen.
They’re a decent band and they seem to have a sense of patriotism. I’ll be going out and buying another one of their albums tomorrow. They support the 2nd, I’ll continue to support them.
Zoltan Bathory has his head screwed on straight and he’s got more sense than any of our elected retards.
If “Zoltan Bathory” is his real name, he was destined to be a heavy metal guitarist.
