Speaking Out Against Gun Violence

In the wake of the Sandy Hook shootings one week ago, a large number of performing artists have joined forces with Mayors Against Illegal Guns and the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence to “Demand A Plan Against Gun Violence.”

Celebrities, including Paul Rudd , Amanda Peet , Rashida Jones , Sarah Silverman , Kate Hudson , Debra Messing , Elizabeth Banks , Max Greenfield , and Gwyneth Paltrow , appear in this just-released video exhorting their fellow Americans to demand that members of Congress and the president pass “common sense legislation” to prevent future tragedies. Such laws would involve requiring a criminal background check for every gun sold in America, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and making gun trafficking a federal crime, including real penalties for “straw purchasers.”
