Eddie Vedder Almost Wishes "Bad Things" Upon Gun Owners

by at . Comments

It's safe to say Eddie Vedder and Ted Nugent do not see eye-to-eye on the topic of gun control.

The outspoken Pearl Jam singer sits down with Mark Richards in a new interview and makes it take - his consternation, really - on America's current gun control situation as clear as can be.

"The fact that we're living in a country where 90 percent of the people want further gun laws - to maybe somehow put a dent in some of this insanity that's happening - and yet there's no further legislation taking place, it's very frustrating and upsetting," Vedder says.

Vedder even includes himself among those who probably shouldn't be handed a weapon without a thorough background check, telling Richards:

"If I didn't have music to kind of at least get some of the aggression out or take the edge off, you wouldn't want me having a gun either."

Vedder takes issue with actual gun owners, but most of his vitriol is reserved for pro-gun lobbyist that he thinks hide both the U.S. Constitution and the concept that owning a gun is "fun."

"I get so angry that I almost wish bad things upon these people," Vedder says. "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 fucking guns laying around. But I guess it's 'fun.'"

Vedder should sit down with Piers Morgan and talk guns. That would make for some fun television.

Where do YOU stand on this hot button issue? Should there be major gun control legislation in America?
