Corey Taylor Slams U.S. Gun Laws: ‘There Are Too Many F—king Guns In America’

Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor said that “there are too many f—king guns in America,” as a response to the horrific shooting sprees in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.

“Music is an easy target because [people in authority] don’t understand it,” Taylor told Independent. There’s a complete lack of effort to try to understand it, and a lack of willingness to take any portion of the blame for these events.

“If you’re looking for a certain kind of rhetoric, whether it’s hating black people or gay people or whatever, there are thousands of sites with people posting about it,” he continued. “We’re seeing the repercussions of a failure to address that. They still wanna blame the f*cking music, and it’s been happening since the ’60s to ’85 with Tipper Gore… Just get the f*ck out of my face with that sh*t!”

Taylor believes that the most important factor in the most shootings is the easy availability of guns.

“There are too many f—king guns in America,” he said. “I could walk outside right now and find a gun within minutes. There’s a very toxic gun culture here, it’s a cult, and it worries me.”

SLIPKNOT has released their sixth studio album, We Are Not Your Kind, on August 9 via Roadrunner Records.

Album was once again recorded at a Los Angeles studio with producer Greg Fidelman, who engineered and mixed SLIPKNOT‘s 2004 album “Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)” and helmed 2014’s “.5: The Gray Chapter.”
