great video!!!!

Okay…here’s a plan…why don’t we cut out violence in movies, games, and television? Let’s start with the film industry. Make all movies that have violence X-rated, including comic book violence. That way, no dumb parent can bring their kid to watch and R-rated violent movie….since it will now be X-rated. Hollywood should encourage a better rating system….that would cut the influence of violence on young kids.

It would be a more compelling video if “real” people were in it and not celebrities.

@sullivan: It wouldn’t be on this site then and you would not have seen it.

Great video.

And how about we stop blaming movies and games and television. How is rating a movie X-rated going to stop dumb parents from bringing their kids? They are already bringing them to R-rated movies, they’ll get them in to the X-rated. Start demanding better policies at the movie theaters, not for censorship of movies.

Violence has been around for centuries and centuries. We learn about it in books, at school, on the computer, in movies, through friends, etc… but common sense can prevail. How about parents talking to their children instead of blaming everyone. How about communites stepping up and making sure everyone survives in this world. How about better healthcare to help those who are sick before they get their hands on guns? How about better gun reforms? How about needing licenses and insurance if you want to own a gun. There are so many things to take into account and think about.

Blaming movies and computer games sounds like the NRA, just blame everyone else so they can keep making money off of guns that kill. Money seems more important these days that the life of a human being.

Like the video says, demand a plan because blaming is not a plan and it does nothing to stop this violence.

As a parent my first demand would be from the television and motion picture industry. Gratuitous glorification of violence must be considered a huge contributor to today’s culture. Don’t blame the NRA. Blame every face in this video. You own the problem. You have financially benefited from the problem. Clean your own house first…then by all means point fingers.

@Ann: Such a simplistic way of looking at things. Do you think that will stop parents from buying the DVDs for their children? Do you really think that is THE problem? To quote the film Scream, “Movies don’t make serial killers, they just make serial killers more creative.” What influenced Jack the Ripper to murder several prostitutes in the 19th century? ’cause it certainly wasn’t the media!

@Ann: Great idea………I think lots of people would support this !!! I hope you promote doing this !!!!!

I think it’s quite hypocritical for a good portion of these stars demanding a change, yet seeing them in films shooting guns and starring in such violent films for us Americans is BS!

THANK YOU !

@Sasi: Ahaha, thanks for the laugh. Blame these regular people doing their jobs for starring in violent films. Not society for treating people with mental health issues so terribly or the gun laws. People who blame it on the media are MORONS. Are you saying violence didn’t exist before the age of media? Unthinkably violent acts were committed before TV or films.

I am surprised Beyonce took part in this campaign. How would J-Z react to it?

These people are effin idiots. You cannot end gun violence any more than you can end knife violence. You cannot end wars. You cannot end fighting. Grow up!

You people in Hollywood want to make a difference, then deal with your side of it – the violence, the video games. Are you all going to stop making movies with guns? What is YOUR commitment?

Beyonce taking part in this video is a contradiction in itself.. being married to a man that gained his fortune by talking about violence & guns. Hypocrisy at its finest.

It is to be made possibly a child with make a distinction between reality and put representation. Of course if one parks it only before the television and does not talk with the child, it can happen they understand power in the cinema differently.
So I find it importantly somebody what acts. Whether now VIPs or normal people.

hypocrites of the highest degree, puppets….

AND THE FIRST POST AFTER THIS ONE HAS A MAN WITH A GUN GREAT WORK HOLLYWOOD !

this video is the pinnacle of hypocracy: apparently its ok for their bodyguards to have guns to protect them from the same looneytune type that killed the kids, but jane doe like me should just be victimized: i think not. these people are for entertainment purposes only. anything beyond that that they use their spotlight for is hypocracy. had i been armed inside that school, those kids would not have been murdered. their logic is flawed. criminals never obey laws, so why make more to victimize the non-criminals. too much botox makes these people have zero common sense.

@buckerbuck:

I WAS SAYING THANK YOU TO SASI’S COMMENT ACTUALLY

wonder how much they paid them to do this video

you know jennifer aniston does not believe what she preaches. it is so form of publicity for her ass

@angela: zero money, just a good PR

Little Miss Wicked @ 12/21/2012 at 4:01 pm

Thousands and thousands of good people have guns and they don’t go around hurting people. These people that go to the movies and schools are NUTS. Just because you take there gun away doesn’t make them any less CRAZY! If they wont to hurt people they will find a way. This just puts the thousands and thousands of good people in danger!!!!!!

an opinion @ 12/21/2012 at 4:03 pm

Celebs jumping before thinking. Demand a plan is too easy. The NRA is giving you a plan. More guns. Now what celebs?
