@Little Miss Wicked:

YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND COMMON SENSE , HIGH POWERED AUTOMATIC GUNS MAKES IT A LOT EASIER FOR THEM TO COMMIT THESE ATROCITIES ! PLEASE TELL ME WHAT YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND ABOUT THIS ?

I congratulate them for speaking out about this but I find it quite sad that it took this long for the outrage to fully come out. We should have been this active and forceful when Columbine happened.
I will say
1) We really need to speak about mental illness in this country. It is time to stop downplaying and ignoring this as a whole and we really need to speak out more about this.
2) Yes I am not a fan of guns and I want them to be regulated, but banning guns completely will not stop criminals. They will find ways to get guns. Matter of fact, most of them don’t even have registered and legal guns right now anyways.

I have to disagree. If we have gun laws all thats going to do is keep innocent people from being able to protect themselves, while the criminals will find a way to get the guns no matter what. If they are insane, they will find a way to get the guns. We nee to stop focusing so much on the guns and start focusing on those who are so mentally ill. And instead of just sitting around and not doing anything about it when they notice something is wrong, why don’t we actually try to get them help. And just because we have stricter gun laws doesn’t mean they wouldn’t find another way. Its the mentally ill we have to worry about getting help, not stricter gun laws.

Only focus the gun control wouldn’t fix the problem. The mental illness system need to improve as well. There is already wrong that gun actually is cheaper than antidepressant prescriptions and psychiatrist consultant fees.

Those “guns” on the one mighty and strong in Anchorman 2004 are the plan. Just you watch.

Blah Blah Blah. Start a foundation to combat the power the NRA has. This video is just a ego booster and most likely was started by some of these actors/actresses pr agency.

If Hollywood really cares about gun violence, they would stop glamourizing it in their movies and video games. They are just as much to blame. Funny how they take out violent scenes after a gun attack, but have no problem filming it and releasing it as long as there is not violence around it’s premier. They can all start by telling their bodyguards to give up their guns. I also guarantee most of these celebrities (minus Paltrow) probably own a gun since they are the do as I say and not as I do crowd.

So you want to stop blaming movies for these horrific murders, but want to blame the NRA? hypocrite. We need tougher gun control laws for sure, but people who are members of the NRA are usually hunters and competition shooters. Parents has lost control of parenting their kids. I think people who own guns should have to have them secured in a safe as we do. Parents need to start parenting their kids appropriately and be responsible if you own guns. We are gun owners, but they are locked in a safe, not a gun case. Not all Americans should have guns, but a ban is not going to happen. Ban the 2nd Amendment and soon to follow will be a ban on the 1st Amendment which we all know Hollywood will ***** about.

@urbigfatazz: WHAT PART OF MENTALLY ILL DONT YOU UNDERSTAND. ARE YOU SAYING IF WE DID AWAY WITH AUTOMATIC GUNS THE MENTALLY SICK PEOPLE WOULD JUST DISAPPEAR. WHERE IS YOUR COMMON SENSE?

@LaCroix-#15
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.
\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
How many rappers have gunned down people in schools or house of worship,or unarmed teen for playing loud music,last time I checked it was a proud NRA gun tottin whack job

Does anyone remember what the President said at the prayer vigil
“No single law — no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world, or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society. But that can’t be an excuse for inaction”
No one is saying people can’t own guns. But No one needs a gun that can Spray bullets! The babies killed in Newtown had 3 to 11 bullets in their bodies
When Need Change Now

Pure Hipocrisy.. J.Aniston spent the day after the tragedy in a spa caring for herself. Now she goes there to talk about enough to guns? Is she really worried about all that damage? Is she actually worried about others? And her mother, for instance? What about her?

1) Many of you people should ask yourselves first :”have I endorsed these violent movies, games, etc.?”… because sadly most likely the answer is yes, I know I have…. So instead of blaming filmmakers, STOP providing a paycheck for these people and think twice before endorsing this booming market.

2) With regards to the bigger picture: Gun violence is so prevalent in America because of your gun laws. I live in Canada and gun violence is not as prominent b/c with the exception of police, people are not allowed to own guns. This case (Sandy Hook) is a very dark part of American history now b/c it could have been avoided. The government MUST make it so that except for police and such, REGULAR CIVILIANS should by NO MEANS be allowed to own guns. What difference does it make if “certain civilians” are allowed to own guns? The young man who went to go and shoot these poor victims did not own a gun himself… it was his own mother (no criminal record) who had purchased this gun for “self protection”.. meanwhile it was the instrument which ultimately caused her own death!!!
I also understand that in order to own guns for “self protection” you must be 18 or older….so how are people being “protected” when children were harmed since they aren’t allowed to own a gun b/c they are underage!! By supporting that people should own guns in your country… you are paying a great disrespect to these victims and their families and are ultimately letting them die in vain if these gun laws are not changed. It is absolutely barbaric to keep stupid gun laws (some have which have been effective since 1791) if all it has done is cause harm in your country. How can you even keep asinine laws like that effective b/c of “the constitution” or whatever. Slavery has been banned…. do you think we should keep that policy alive too??
I understand it will be a big, expensive project that the government will have to take… but as a human beings… I seriously hope that we have not grown so selfish that making money is more important than our fellow human being’s life….

I like how people act as if it is the celebrities fault that these things happen. People are saying they are hypocrites because they make money off of violence in movies. How is it their fault they might make an action movie and some random nutcase goes on a killing spree. Why should the rest of us suffer because some people take things to an extreme and decide hmm i’m gonna kill someone today but it’s ok everyone will blame the movies.

I’m from Australia. Our last major shooting massacre was back in the early 90s. We got guns under control and we don’t have major shootings. You guys have like 3 or more a year. It’s terrible. I also think there needs to be some major mental health care needed in the USA.

just a thought @ 12/21/2012 at 11:24 pm

Except for Beyonce none of those people have any power in Hollywood to get things changed. I wonder where all the major celebs were.

@Little Miss Wicked:

last time i’m going to say it, automatic , high powered guns with high capacity clips MAKES IT EASIER TO CAUSE QUICK AND EASY DESTRUCTION ……. i didnt say anyone would disappear, UGH if i said this please point it out to me OK

Poor misguided celebrities, nothing better to do then spin their heels. Guns aren’t the problem, its the people using them. Gun laws work, yet wackos and others will always find a way around them so all this talk about tighter gun laws is just going to make the rats move underground. Sure take away are means of defending ourselves and mean “us” not the celeb’s who have bodyguards, they’re such hypocrites. Some how they’re lives our worth more then mine or anyone else’s?, screw that!. Well thats what owning a gun for is sweetie, people use to do back in the day of course people were less stupid back then and could be trusted to use a gun for defense and food only*lol*.

Little Miss Wicked @ 12/22/2012 at 12:07 am

@urbigfatazz: If you outlawed the high powered guns, criminals would us low powered one….. or not even a gun a weapon is a weapon. If someone wants to hurt someone they well thats my point!

Banning guns, weapons or whatever does NOT solve anything. People do not realize that the killers or the gunmen in the news lately were mentally sick. People have to take action on organizing and planning more institutions for these kind of people, such as, better and functional system to treat these kind of behaviour. If you guys didn’t realise, in the Sandy Hook incident, the gunman did not purchase or collect any guns from retail, his MOTHER owned these weapons. The questions is, why the f*ck would the mother keep weapons in her household when she knew that she has a sick child living with her?

People all around the world see movies, violent and non violent movies yet most of the times these tragedies happen in the US. It’s too easy to buy and own a gun in the US. It’s that crazy idea that everybody has a right to legally own a gun that brings on these tragedies. In the hand of mentally unstable persons this idea is dangerous.

Stop kissing the gun lobby ass. That’s the first line of the plan.

@Hal: Exactly! What the person that are blaming Hollywood are forgetting is that almost everybody around the globe sees the same violent movies the American people see, even in the most peaceful countries. So, violence in movies and video games is definitely not the problem but the fact that it is too easy to buy guns in the US.

Celebrities spent much of the last ten years waiting for the Iraq war to go bad so they could act like it was Vietnam era again. They spent so much time becoming distant and worshiping a big golden idol that has only led this country further down into the hole. I don’t care what they have to say about anything.

Maybe Brad Pitt can come on and talk a bout how great it is that the drug war is over. Sure, he won’t talk about how bad drug abuse is and how a negative affect it has on people’s communities. He’s a guy who got 7 mil for a stupid commericial. Go count your money and shut up.

Ann, you rock @ 12/22/2012 at 3:10 am

@Ann: I know, I find some of these actors hypocritical… and you put it back in their face. They see no problem in using that same gun that they prohibit in their movies. Free publicity and good PR for these celebs. They make way too much money… more money than anyone deserves or could use in a thousand lifetimes. Why don’t they just take what the need and give the rest to this anti-gun cause, then I’d believe them.

jen aniston’s face is so expressive
