Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory has weighed in on the current national debate over gun control, in the wake of the recent horrific mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut that took the lives of 27 people, including 20 children in first grade. In a post at his Facebook page, Bathory says he and other owners need them for self-defense and sports.
Bathory wrote, "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.'"
