System of a Down guitarist Daron Malakian has revealed his pro-gun stance via a recent post on Facebook. He reposted a video of a drum cover of SOAD’s “B.Y.O.B.” using firearms as percussion.
Malakian shared the video created by “GunDrummer”, a guy who fires guns to make beats, as he plays along to the song with pistols, rifles, and machine guns. Malakian wrote, “Another great performance from GunDrummer. Guns are essential tools for self defense!!!!!! And they make great percussive instruments as well!!! #2A #2ndAmendment #DefundGunControl #GunsareLoaded #BYOB #SOAD #DMSOB #DaronMalakian #ScarsOnBroadway #SystemOfADown.”
In 2019, Malakian released the single “Guns Are Loaded” with his band Scars on Broadway.
