Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder has slammed the current state of gun laws in the U.S. in a new interview, calling the lack of tough legislation “frustrating and upsetting.” Speaking with pro surfer Mark Richards in a video interview posted at Pearl Jam’s website, Vedder said, “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. 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 blasted “antiquated” gun laws, arguing that the Second Amendment right to bear arms did not anticipate things like automatic ammunition. He also slammed gun owners for their position that firing guns is “fun,” saying, “I get so angry that 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 four-year-old either shooting their sister, their dad, their dog, their brother or themselves, because there’s f***ing guns laying around. But I guess it’s ‘fun.’”
