Beyonce, Jamie Foxx, Carmelo Anthony, John Legend and More Demand a Plan to Stop Gun Violence

Beyonce, Jamie Foxx, Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz, Courtney Cox, Jennifer Anniston Reese Witherspoon and Will Ferrell Demand A Plan to end gun violence.

Demand A Plan is a campaign of Mayors Against Illegal Guns. It’s made up of a coalition of mayors working to make America’s communities safer by keeping illegal guns out of dangerous hands. Co-founded in 2006 by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, the coalition has grown from a group of 15 members to more than 850 mayors from 44 states, including Republicans, Democrats, and Independents, from major cities and small towns around the country. They have more than 1.2 million grassroots supporters, making this the largest gun violence prevention advocacy organization in the country.

The group demands that the President and Congress tell us the concrete steps they will take to prevent 33 Americans from being murdered with guns each and every day. And that elected leaders protect every American’s right to safety and security, without living in fear of gun violence.
