Beyonce speaks out against gun violnce and urges viewers to demand a plan in new PSA

Several big name stars came together for a Public Service Announcement to end gun violence following the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

In the new PSA to end gun violence, such celebrities as Jamie Foxx, Paul Rudd, Beyonce, Amy Poehler, Jon Hamm, Reese Witherspoon, Will Ferrell, Sarah Silverman, John Legend, and Ellen Degeneres band together to make a statement about the danger of guns on the streets of America.

In the PSA, the stars pose several important questions about the impact of gun violence in America and the dangers children face when trying to lead a normal life free of gunfire.

“How many more colleges? How many more classrooms? How many more movie theaters? How many more houses of faith? How many more shopping malls? How many more street quarters? Enough,” say the stars. “Demand a plan right now as a mom, as a dad, as a friend, as a husband, as a wife, as an American, as a human being. For the children of Sandy Hook, demand a plan!”

The new PSA comes after the tragic shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut where 20 children were gunned down that left a total of 28 people shot and killed.

Since the shooting on December 14, people everywhere have been focused on gun control while seriously questioning why so many guns are on the streets of America.

Also lending their time to the gun violence PSA, Selena Gomez, Chris Rock, Cameron Diaz, Christina Applegate, Jennifer Aniston, and more urge viewers to demand a gun control plan for the children of Sandy Hook.

“No more lists of names,” the stars continue. “It’s not too soon, it’s too late. Now is the time before we all know someone who loved someone on that list. No more lists, no more who they might have been. If we had just done something yesterday. It’s time! We can do better than this. It’s time for our leaders to act.”

How do you feel about what the stars are saying in the new PSA?

    Somebody do something! Just don’t dare suggest our violent movies have anything to do with it!

      I 100% agree, There as much to blame as the gun. Gun is just a tool a device used to promote an action. No one ever files criminal charges to a gun for murder. The action put in motion is a human mind that been constantly subjected to violent video games , movies , or TV shows.

      • Don’tBeMad

        I agree with the first part but it’s not just technology its peer-viewed society because massacres still happened before these entertainment devices were invented like the bombing in 1929 that I believe killed 40.

    Typical. How about these stars talk about NDAA which affect all Americans or those unprovoked, extra-judicial drones strikes on unarmed civilians in places like Pakistan.

    We demand that you do something about the media! Now!…or soon maybe.

    Well, Ms. Beyonce, your husband is one of the reasons why today’s kids are into violence.

  • sickofyou

    How many of these fools bodyguards carry guns.
    Shut up and go make another bloody gun movie

  • Philadelphia native

    It’s really a shame that so many kids had to die for action to be done by our leaders. Where I’m from people are murdered everyday!!!! In my city it’s not uncommon for 5-7 people to be killed everyday and they don’t die from assault rifles!!! So realistically if we’re not talking about changing the gun laws to banning weapons all together than we’re wasting our time!!!

  • double stranded

    I bet the bodyguards that protect thepresident and Beyonce
    Girls have guns why not ours.

  • SP OT

    And have any of these capstone promoted, capstone vetted,
    capstone compromised, ‘on board’ on cue ‘M’ pathy whores
    —EVER— said —ANYTHING about our now decades ON
    mainstream culture of turning on one’s UNBORN in the name
    of ‘CON—‘V’—knee—ants’?

    Have they made any motion or stand or call on behalf
    of the yet unfolding, EUGENICS ‘very very friendly’
    ———————RED China Halocaust? –or the labor
    practices –or prison system of that Globalist conjured nightmare?

    “Political power grows out of the barrel —of a gun.”
    MAO TSE TUNG

    THINK ABOUT THAT as you watch the Globalist—RED China
    handover —‘CON–solidate’. . .

  • Especially Jamie Foxx

    Do a search for this video on YouTube and add the word hypocrite and you’ll see how much gun violence these celebs have supported and made money with.

  • Celebs are the biggest hypocrites on earth. Guaranteed they have plenty of guns protecting their prima donna asses. You wanna do something really constructive? Act against the bleeding heart judges who constantly let dangerous criminals loose on society instead of locking them away for life like they should be doing? Other than that STFU because we don’t really care about your stupid ass opinions!
