Hollywood ‘Demands A Plan’ On Gun Control

Dozens of Hollywood celebrities star in a new video in support for gun control for the campaign “Demand A Plan” that is sponsored by Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

Some of the celebrities include: Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Aniston, Beyonce, Paul Rudd, Courtney Cox, Jamie Foxx, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Amy Poehler, Jeremy Renner, Jon Hamm, Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Alba, Will Ferrell, Jennifer Garner, Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Rock, Selena Gomez, Conan O’Brien, Carmelo Anthony and more.

The video comes one week after the Newtown school shootings that left 27 people dead, including 20 children.

Mayors Against Illegal Guns was cofounded in 2006 by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino. Their website states that the group is a bipartisan coalition of 800 mayors throughout the country that advocate for the prevention of gun violence.

Celebrities Want You to Vote…For Stuff

These celebrities want you to vote. Among slew of celebs in the new non-partision video that is meant to garner enthusiasm among voters are: Tobey Maguire, Sarah Silverman, Jason Gordon Levitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen DeGeneres, Zac Efron, Selena Gomez, Edward Norton, Amanda Seyfried, Benicio Del Toro and Jonah Hill.

Many in the conservative blogosphere didn’t believe the video was non-partision, due to some of the issues brought up at the end of the video that tend to be supported by liberals. Although, many may describe it as a pro-Obama ad, it isn’t like this one from 2008.

DiCaprio told The Associated Press that the purpose was to ignite enthusiasm among voters.

“We are using the power of social media throughout the Vote 4 Stuff campaign to incite bipartisan conversation around real issues, encourage registration and voting in November.”
