Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyoncé Knowles are among celebrities campaigning for gun regulation in the wake of the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary.
The stars feature in a new public service announcement against gun violence for Demand a Plan after 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children and six adults before turning the gun on himself at the Connecticut school last Friday. The one-and-a-half minute clip features the celebrity activists asking: 'How many more colleges? How many more classrooms? How many more movie theatres? How many more houses of faith?' before lawmakers tighten regulations.
A cast of artists and entertainers, including Michelle Williams, Reese Witherspoon, Kate Hudson, Cameron Diaz, Ellen DeGeneres, Julianne Moore, Chris Rock, Jamie Foxx, Olivia Munn, Selena Gomez, Paul Rudd, Jon Hamm, Jennifer Westfeldt, Will Ferrell, Sarah Silverman, Amy Poehler, Adam Scott, Rashida Jones, John Slattery, Jeremy Renner, Conan OBrien, and others, have feature in the PSA released Friday on DemandaPlan.org.
The effort, a campaign from Mayors Against Illegal Guns, comes a week after the horrific massacre in Newtown and amid polarising debate rippling through the U.S. about gun violence and the Second Amendment.

Mayors Against Illegal Guns was founded by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino.  Bloomberg is the largest funder of the group, having contributed $3 million.  Eli Broad contributed $750,000 and the Joyce Foundation contributed $1.1 million. 
OK I surrender in the face of such mental giants.
To the headline: we care what these people say why?
Here is a plan:
1) All of these idiots can pledge to never used armed security ever again.
2) They can all go into the inner city (you know, the places with the most gun violence) and get every one of them to surrender their guns.

Let’s ban gun violence in movies and video games, first. Then wait and see the cultural effect before taking on guns. Actually, I don’t support the infringement of our god-given freedoms, that are enumerated in the Bill of Rights, but I would like to see how hollywood reacts.
Won’t this stop their work on faster than light travel and ending hunger?
The Eastern Bloc used to have a lower crime rate than the West. Maybe we should adopt totalitarianism to crack down on “blue collar” violent crime.
When the State is the one doing all the killing, what’s to worry about? Except maybe somebody in the State not liking you and deciding you should be executed.
A Police State is a Safe State! /s
yeah? well I demand a plan to stop attacking liberties of law abiding citizens with laws that will do NOTHING and start going after the criminals instead!
Effing Hollywood halfwits.
Go to hell.
Have them walk the streets of Chicago and NYC demanding street gangs to give up their stolen guns. That’s where the violence is.
They want a plan?
Arm and train qualified teachers and school staff.
If training and arming qualified teachers will not protect our children in school, then how does arming secret service agents protect Obama’s children?
There has never been an attempt to impose harm on his children, protected by armed agents.
The targets have been our vulnerable children in unprotected schools every time.
Are Obama’s daughters more important than your sons & daughters that they merit armed protections and yours don’t?
We're in trouble - Bloomberg has called out the brain trust. I just hope Matt Damon doesn't make a commercial or it will be all over.
How many people are killed in drunk driving accidents every year, as opposed to being killed by a random gunman in a public place? They won’t go there, because those boozehounds want their liquor.
Isn’t Beyonce married to the thug who was personally invited to the White House - Jay-Z, who calls women bitches and hoes (pimp my scenario) and who exploits senseless violence to millions of moronic impressionable teens? I’m sick of this hypocrisy. Why doesn’t anyone call these thugs out. Jay-Z and his fellow rappers have done more to destroy young blacks than every racist redneck ever did. Enough!
So, none of these mayors have a concealed carry, and of course they have no armed security or police protecting them right? When these mental giants eschew all protection by force of arms then maybe they can talk to me about guns. But I am pretty sure they all believe in security for me but not for thee!
“1) All of these idiots can pledge to never used armed security ever again.”
These hypocrites will always see how they deserve protection that they can pay others to do for them but the rest of us can suck it if we want to protect ourselves.
