Hollywood stars use video to demand action on gun violence
In a powerful new video released a week after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., a host of Hollywood stars have come together to "demand a plan to end gun violence."
The black and white video runs just under a minute and a half and features stars from film and television, music and sports. They each deliver quick snippets as part of a singular message aimed at saying enough with the violence, while urging Americans to take action.
Jamie Foxx starts the video by saying "Columbine" and is followed by fellow stars who name other mass shooting sites before several say, "Newtown."
The video is sponsored by Demand a Plan, a campaign of mayors against illegal guns, which, according to its website, is urging President Obama and Congress to pass "common sense legislation."
The video's A-list talent includes Beyonce, Jon Hamm, Amy Poehler, Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell, Will Ferrell, Reese Witherspoon, Chris Rock, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Alba, Julianne Moore, Jeremy Renner, Jennifer Garner, Conan O'Brien and many more.
"No more lists of names," they say. "It's not too soon. It's too late."
