Video After The Jump
America has seen a rash of mass shootings in places such as Newtown, Connecticut, Aurora, California, Virginia Tech, the Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin and Columbine High School.
Celebrities across the country like Carmelo Anthony, Beyonce, John Legend, Jamie Foxx, Will Ferrell, Chris Rock, Cameron Diaz, Jeremy Renner, Jennifer Aniston, Conan O'Brien, Sarah Silverman, Olivia Munn and more have teamed up with http://www.demandaplan.org/ seeking a change in America's gun policies.
Tt’s time. Join more than 750 mayors and 750,000 grassroots supporters to demand that President Obama and Congress step forward with a plan to end gun violence.
Our efforts cannot bring back the 20 innocent children murdered in Newtown, CT -- or the 34 people murdered with guns every day in America. But we can prevent future tragedies by passing common sense legislation that will:
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”
