The shooting that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, last Friday has placed gun control back on the national radar and celebrities are attempting to bring more awareness to this issue by banning together for a new PSA to end gun violence.

Beyonce, Chris Rock, and Jamie Foxx are just a handful of the celebrities who have lent their voice to the issue in this public service announcement released online by the Mayors Against Illegal Guns. Other famous faces in the video are Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson,Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Garner, Jessica Alba, Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz, Michelle Williams, Courteney Cox, Ellen DeGeneres, Julianne Moore, Selena Gomez, Jon Hamm, Will Ferrell, Aziz Ansari, Christina Applegate, Debra Messing, Elizabeth Banks, Brooke Shields, Kristen Bell, , Sarah Silverman, Amy Poehler, and Jason Bateman.

Mayors Against Illegal Guns is an organization made up of 750 mayors and 750,000 grassroots supporters across the country who are joining together to demand that President Obama and Congress develop a comprehensive plan to end gun violence, according to their website, demandaplan.org. There, this PSA will be housed along with a three-point wish list of what the organization envisions in the legislation they’re pushing for:
  1. Require a criminal background check for every gun sold in America
  2. Ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines
  3. Make gun trafficking a federal crime, including real penalties for “straw purchasers”
