TESTAMENT’s ALEX SKOLNICK: USA Has ‘Weakest Gun Laws In The Developed World’

Alex Skolnick

In his recent tweet, TESTAMENT guitarist Alex Skolnick says that no American citizen is safe as long as the USA has “the weakest gun laws in the developed world.”

He made his comments in response to a tweet from a fan who was concerned about the musician’s well-being following news reports that three people were killed and at least 11 others were injured Sunday (July 28) in a shooting at an annual food festival in Northern California.

Skolnick tweeted: “I’m thousands of miles away, thanks. But as more mass shootings happen at schools, malls, movie theaters, concerts, nightclubs & elsewhere (we can add food festivals, sadly) here in the country with the weakest gun laws in the developed world & the most guns, none of us are safe.”

TESTAMENT recently finished recording the follow-up to 2016’s Brotherhood Of The Snake album for a tentative early 2020 release. The disc was once again tracked with Juan Urteaga, who previously worked on “Brotherhood Of The Snake” as well as albums from MACHINE HEAD and EXODUS.
