(Radio.com) Current country artist and frontman of '90s rock band Staind Aaron Lewis has taken a firm stance against gun control in a new interview. He made no bones about his position on firearms when talk turned to the shooting tragedy at the Route 91 festival in Las Vegas.

"There isn't a law on the books or that could have been on the books that would have stopped this horrible tragedy from happening," the longtime supporter of gun ownership told CBS Philadelphia, "and I am not of the belief that you punish the masses because of the few."

"Gun control is a very slippery slope, because the people that you are controlling are the law-abiding citizens that follow the laws, that buy guns legally," Lewis added. "Criminals don't buy guns legally. Criminals don't follow laws that are applied. So, really, all you're doing with more gun laws is hindering the law-abiding citizens from protecting themselves from the criminal that isn't gonna go through all the law-abiding things to get that gun."

For Lewis, controlling guns is missing the point entirely. Read more here.
