Celebrities band together in gun control video
You may have already seen this video, released by the Demand A Plan campaign run by Mayors Against Illegal Guns. Whether or not this is the case doesn’t really matter, because we at TheVine are all for ensuring that the clip goes as viral as possible—especially while there’s such significant public momentum behind gun control in the wake of Newtown’s recent, incredible tragedy.
The video sees a bevy of entertainers, including Beyoncé, Amy Poehler, Carey Mulligan, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Aniston, Jon Hamm, Jessica Alba and Selena Gomez rally together to create a hard-hitting message in support of gun control. The video also serves to advertise the campaign’s website, which features more information on the demands of the campaign and provides an opportunity for US citizens to sign a pro-gun control petition.
The message in the video becomes all the more pressing in light of the fact that it was released the same day that the National Rifle Association demanded that access to guns be protected. Spread and share people, spread and share.
