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?
