Celebrities ‘Demand A Plan’ In Gun PSA & NRA Say Media Is To Blame

A week after the Sandy Hook shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, two videos from very opposing camps hit the internet. First you have celebrities asking in a PSA, “How many more colleges? How many more classrooms? How many more movie theaters? How many more house of faith? How many more shopping malls? How many more street corners?” Demand A Plan is a grassroots initiative to mobilize Americans to DEMAND a plan to end gun violence from Congress and President Obama. Reese Witherspoon, Beyonce, Michelle Williams, Selena Gomez, John Hamm, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and many, many more lend their voices to the PSA.

Coincidentally on the same day, National Rifle Association president Wayne LaPierre, held a live press conference. LaPierre claims the media is to blame for the shootings and not guns. He explains that the entertainment industry makes “the filthiest form of pornography,” citing violent music videos and films Natural Born Killers and American Psycho. He further goes on to say that “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” His most controversial comment that has celebrities on Twitter in a tizzy is his claim that had armed guards been at Sandy Hook, innocent lives would’ve been spared that day. Check out both vids below.

What do you think of both videos? Do you agree that having armed guards everywhere is the answer or do you think gun control is the key? Sound off below.

    At least the celebs have the right idea. More guns still means people dies. Stricter gun laws prevent that violence from happening.

    That idiot from CodePink should have been gunned down right where she stood.

    I agree that people should be able to have guns, but the reasoning that some of these people give are ridiculous. It’s strange and sad that we live in times where people feel they have to go armed in public to feel safe.
