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.
If the guns are illegal.....sure. But that’s where the pity party stops.
Wow....is did not know that guys would insure the safety of my family. Its really magnanimous of them. Did they mention when they would be starting their first watch?
When one of them will walk through Central Park, at night, without body guards, I might start listening to them. But probably not.
Add up their IQs and it may reach the intellegence of a goldfish.
One thing about Hollyweird “celebrities”, they have ALL of the answers and they’ll tell you that in a heartbeat. If we all could only be as smart as movie stars are.
UK passed new gun laws after a school shooting, and public outrage. Seem like a community organizing effort to Push the US into similar laws.
Tell these ditz b**ches to just shut the bleep up & sing.
> To the headline: we care what these people say why?
Because they can read or sing what others have written for them just like their idol Ohaha.
And I'm with him.
Id have been a lot happier if the NRA had called for members to pull their kids out of public school combined with a state by state campaign to allow local solutions to every individual district.
When your combined IQ is greater than 89 we'll talk.
Collection of Meat Puppets. Pretty to look at but best with mouths shut.
Open have you seen this article, old but very interesting.
How Many More Trashy Hollywood Sluts will be making PSA's?
Barack Obamas presidential campaign has worked to assure uneasy gun owners that he believes the Constitution protects their rights and that he doesnt want to take away their guns. But before he became a national political figure, he sat on the board of a Chicago-based foundation that doled out at least nine grants totaling nearly $2.7 million to groups that advocated the opposite positions.
Obamas eight years on the board of the Joyce Foundation, which paid him more than $70,000 in directors fees, do not in any way conflict with his campaign-trail support for the rights of gun owners, Ben LaBolt, a spokesman for Obamas presidential campaign, asserted in a statement issued to Politico this week.
Let me guess, most, if not all of these celebrities use armed security at some point for their safety. Whey they publicly state that thy will never use armed security again, no mater what the conditions and call 911 if a situation arises, then I’ll listen. They never will. Just more of do as I say, not as I do.
What’s wrong with you.............picking on goldfish.
A list of films, music etc acted in or sung by the above named “celebrities” that glorify guns, criminal culture, and/or senseless violence would be enlightening. Any applicable booking photos would be a plus.
Interesting...they have also had an open border policy. We are being pushed in the same direction.
“Do they have a history of criticizing murders in America’s inner cities?”
Of course not. This is Hollywood, they’re attention whores by profession and this is free publicity. They’re going after the “low information” types who think that these people matter.
Typical Hollyweird Bolsheviks, 10 degrees to the left in good times, 15 degrees to the right when it affects them personally.
Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyoncé Knowles all have the blood of the Sandy Hook massacre victims on them, along with all those who seek to criminalize self defense.
How different would the outcome have been if some of the staff had the means to protect themselves! How many lives would have been saved!
Shame on Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyoncé Knowles for wanting to deny crime victims the right to defend themselves!
Are their security people armed?
Yes, I thought so.
Who really cars what these twits think. Oh, they don’t think.
“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.”
If they truly cared, the Hollywood elitists would sell their Beverly Hills, Bel Air, and Malibu homes and immediately move into a fixer upper in South Central LA so they can demonstrate to urban dwellers how unnecessary guns are.
Beyoncé? Is that the one with the fat legs?
And not two brain cells to rub together to produce a spark of cognitive thought. Truly the end of civilization.
Think about it. What is the real difference between these people and zombies?
Yes, let’s center our Constitutional rights around these three paragons of intelligence and liberty.
