Pharrell: "Among humans, we just should love each other more. I mean, in another interview we talk about abolishing guns, period. Unless it’s for hunting or whatever – even then there are other things you could use, like rubber pellets. They could invent something.
"If they want to stop killing people, they can stop killing people. But the steel it takes to make the gun is good for the corporations, you know, they gotta make the green paper that we’ve placed the popular value on: money.

Other than that, we’ll just keep making songs to encourage them."
