How awesome is this. During a concert in Switzerland, Slayer's Tom Araya took a break to address the Pratteln crowd and gun control.
“Is it true that every household has to own a rifle or a gun? No? I thought everybody was supposed to have a rifle or a gun in their home. It’s not right? How else are you gonna defend your country?” he asked the crowd of metal heads.
“You should be able to protect and defend your country. That’s the way it should be everywhere. ‘Cause when you don’t have anything to protect yourself or your fellow countrymen, what happens? People f–king die. They do! Don’t they? Yeah. You can see it going on,” he added.
“I’m not gonna name names, but you can see what’s going on in other countries. ‘Cause they can’t protect themselves. And that’s what I’m talking about: being able to protect yourself and your fellow countrymen and your f–king country. I’m being serious, man. This isn’t a f–king joke. You know, it really sucks to know that other people die, because you can’t protect them. That f–king sucks,” he roared.
Speaking from experience, I've seen Araya speak about his political views during concerts. During a show at Heavy Montreal 2014, he spoke about a certain religions and its flaws without going out of his way to specifically say Islam.
