Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder Criticizes Those 'Hiding' Behind 2nd Amendment
In a recent interview with the Huffington Post, Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder used his constitutionally-protected freedom of speech to lash out over the lack of new gun control laws and to criticize those who are pro-gun for "hiding" behind the constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms.
Vedder said he cannot understand why Congress refuses to pass more gun control "to put a dent in some of this insanity that's happening." He said he is so angry over it that if he didn't "take the aggression out" through music, citizens "wouldn't want [him] having a gun either."
I get so mad I almost wish bad things upon these people. But I don't have to because it seems like they happen anyways. It seems like every week I'm reading about a 4-year-old either shooting their sister, their dad, their dog, their brother or themselves, because there's f---ing guns laying around.
Vedder then criticized Second Amendment proponents for "hiding" behind the U.S. Constitution and the idea that owning a gun is "fun."
