  • Rachel Green

    How do you expect people to take this serious when you have Rachel Green talking on a subject matter she have no clue about.

  • Ok

    @nani:
    The same can be said about everyone else on this video stupid. Shows how stupid you are because that’s all you can come up with when you watch this video.

  • Ok

    @Mike:

    How do you know her bodyguards are armed?

  • Really?

    Really? Because wasn’t brad in basterds? Or troy? Or fight club? Yay okay!

  • Really?

    @Mike:

    The loons in full force… Hypocrites considering how many violent movies their idols act in…

  • christine

    @Terri:

    This is so well said! Bravo! And the violence against woman in movies and videos is astounding. I love the comment that Hollywood needs to clean house first and make changes. I am so done with “celebrities” telling me what to do! This whole “do as I say” not “do as I do” is getting old! The fact that Jamie Foxx is part of this initiative is ludicrous after his horrific and racist rant on SNL about “killing all the white people” and how great that was.

  • Hmmm

    Can I just say – if Hollywood can say that having more minority representation can influence perspective of the masses on minorities, then I think it’s equally valid to say gratuitous and senseless violence can have the same impact.

    I think a conversation needs to happen and an attempt is being made here. I like the fact that celebs are approaching this as a community.

    And jj – shame on you for putting the faces you did on your post (There are SO many other faces you could have put) It’s just encouraging the loons to troll around on this page so it generates hits, and it completely dilutes the message. The losers have nothing better to do?

  • Please Take It Down

    Please take this ad off the main page! I can’t enjoy my browsing experience due to seeing Aniston’s “I’m passing a turd face” on very page!

  • Hmmm

    @Please Take It Down:

    How Crude. So typical of the fan base – shallow and juvenile. Bunch of dumbos who don’t get that their incessant obsessing and clicking is exactly why it’s on the front page.

    I really liked Gwyneth Paltow, now I’m thinking twice about her along with a few others. They want to end gun violence? Really? How about not participating in movies with gun violence? Uh oh, wouldn’t want to make a dent in the millions you currently rake in? How about violent video games? All of these desensitize children and adults. Mentally ill people will do crazy things with or without guns (which will still be available illegally anyway). If you really CARE, how about taking a few pay cuts by not participating in violent movies and while you’re at it pay the funds needed to help medicate the mentally ill. You are the ones that can afford to protect yourselves, the rest of the general public will be the most victimized.

    Well said!

  • out of touch as usual

    celebs don’t have to carry, their bodyguards do

  • notabandwagonjumper

    urgh is it me or does this whole celebrity “PSA” make you want to throw up? Half if not all these celebs have featured guns in their movies, music videos, shows and photo shoots yet here they are not taking responsibility for their part in advancing the image of “guns are cool and sexy” and putting this crap out there. half of them prob dont even know who’s president or where Newtown even is on the map. Most of them will go on to their everyday fablous lives and the families that lost their loved ones will be stuck picking up the pieces for the rest of their lives. Yes its sweet that they are jumping on the bandwagon and bringing “awareness” to gun control in the US, but how is Selena Gomez, Beyonce and Olivia Munn (who is the hell is she anyways?) going to actually touch people and bring change? I believe that if there is PSA thats put out there it should feature the families of victims of school shootings. let the real ppl who suffered the real losses talk about what they believe should be done to protect their loved ones in a space where there should be safe. I havent posted anything about the Sandy shootings because i did not experience it and therefore it is not my place to jump on a bandwagon and start calling for changes to gun control when a day before the shootings happened i didnt even care what ppl did with their guns. I am gutted that innocent lives where lost in so many shooting over the years and do agree that there needs to be something done about this situation, but how can I sit there and start advocating for change when there are children all over the world dying from senseless crimes (Sudan, Palestine, Syria,Norway, Somalia,… etc) where is their PSA? Why are they not worth making a short clip to educate ppl all over the world about caring for the safety of their kids? This just seems to me like another opportunity for these celebs to push their brand and it just makes me sick. Those kids that died in Sandy deserve more. their families deserve to be more than headlines and guests on Good Morning America. They need to be given the opportunity to lead their own campaign to share their voices and share their own stories and not have Jamie Foxx do it for them. urgh Hollywood needs to shut the hell up sometime. its not about you its about all those lives that were lost over the years to unnecessary violence. Those lost souls deserve more respect. how about you show them and all the children that are victims of violence everyday around the world a little bit of respect. i wanna see how long it takes before one those celebs makes a song about it and sells it for “charity.” I hope they know that ppl arent stupid and buying into this crap. its like a freakin formula: Tragedy = Celebs + telethon/PSA/Songs + more views/downloads/tweets/follows = more money for the big guys and ppl forgetting about who actually died in that tragedy in the first place. I believe in the power of relating. if the mothers of the sandy victims did a PSA with the mothers of victims in Syria, Palestine,Sudan.. etc.) the world would take notice and ppl will finally see those numbers in the news as actual human beings.

  • Henny

    Uh, Reese, didn’t you asked the director of This Means War if you can have more scenes with you shooting someone? Hypocrite.

  • Shreya

    Really? Because wasn’t brad in ********? Or troy? Or fight club? Yay okay! – Really? @ 12/22/2012 at 12:24 pm

    We are not talking about Brad’s movie – go back and read the comments before replying. We were discussing why you mention Brad and his drug policy while this thread is about gun policy.

    Maybe you don’t have to capacity to comprehend that!!!!!

    Rike at 10:22; The murder rate between white people in Europe and white people in the USA is about the same. If you mix in the slaughter rates from south Chicago and Detroit, the kill stats start to look like something from the Congo or South Africa.

  • ckelly

    @Alaia:

    No – and Jack the Ripper (your example) didn’t need a gun either. The fact is: this is extremely complicated. I want my kids safe and I don’t want some knee-jerk law that won’t help at all. Gun bans aren’t the solution (at least no all of the solution) because places that restrict guns aren’t safer (Chicago and DC prohibit guns, CT has the 5th strictest gun laws in the nation ). Making guns illegal is about as effective as making murder illegal.

    Give me a break! Why the hell would you have a dumbo like Jennifer Aniston making any comments when she is as cluless as a dumb bell.? WTF! . Aniston paid the same agent Huvane millions to get her photo taken to be seen on JJ’s but could care less her parade of goons (bodyguards) surrounding her with their big toting GUNS..
    For that matter everyone of these ppl are agent Huvane hypocrite hacks. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Money talks Bullshyte walks. Give us something real JJ pulease.

    We all have been around long enough to know how much Huvane paid you . Pathetic!!!!

    @Mike:

    How do you know her bodyguards are armed?&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

    I live in Western Canada where appox. 5 yrs ago or so i took my children to an area where Jennifer Aniston was filming a movie .
    The kids were very excited to see this celeb they called Rachel Green. I knew as soon as we arrived it would probably be a miracle to see this woman up close. I didn’t want to burst the children’s bubble so we hung around behind the lines while the kids hoped for her appearance.

    Instead the kids still have nighmares over the chaos that happened right before our eyes. Just remember in Canada guns are legal but my children have only seen them on police officers.
    We are half asian decent so was the camera man with a long lens who was about 3 ft away from us. I have never in my lifetime seen so many bodyguards with GUNS except on tv and all of them carried these guns. This other lone Asian camera-man was thrown to the ground and roughed up like a rag doll while we were pushed to the other side watching this guy taking one ell of a thrashing blood and all.
    You want to see GUNS everyone of those big strapping burly men were pulling out their guns threatning this camera man all over the fact he may have gotten one picture of Aniston which he didn’t get btw.

    My kids saw him within second bleeding being held down and severly beaten when finally at least 10 police cruisers pulled up. .The children and not just mine witnessed the whoile incident

    On top of a good beating he didn’t deserve he was the same nationality as my family and was called names like you effing c.h.i.n.k, slitty eyed cauc.k-suc.ker just go back where you belong. Saying you won’t be making money off Aniston she has enough money to ship you back to your filthy homeland so fast you effing c.hin.k head will spin. ETC
    I was shocked, appalled and my children as well as others were traumatized.. I had to leave due to my childrens state of mind .
    Where as i wanted to stay and be a witness for this man who was bullied beaten and abused . I took my kids home and explained the situation to my wife and her sister and went back to insist on being a witness for this poor guy.

    The police said everything was over and there was no need for making a mountain out of a molehill. I spoke to my BIL who is a detective at that same police station. He explained that these ppl as in Aniston and associates had enough money to make this out to be a small ruckus and in the end it would be hte camera man’s fault . If not that camera-man would be paid off a handsome sum to keep his mouth shut.

    The guns, the abuse, the racists comments were just another day on the so called lovely X wife of Brad Pitt.
    On with the show., just another day in the life of Jennifer Aniston her lawyers and agents in what was to become the biggest coverup of my life.

    We as my family waited till the next day to read about this horrific incident. Yes i always knew money talked as an adult but this was a little too much i think b/c of what my children experienced and the condition of the camera man wouldn’t leave my mind..

    We saw nothing about it in our city newspaper. As for online
    Lainey. gossip .com was very upset so she put a small bit of informaton but due to Aniston’s team of lawyers or as my decteive BIL said ‘her team’ will make this look like a joke

    So did i see guns you bet i did. .What irks me the most is what my children saw.. Not just a horrible beating on a man who didn’t deserve it but to know in advance Ansiton knew she could buy her way out keeping her nose clean all over being a wealthy rich bi.t.c.h. turned our stomachs. My children nor my wife or family will never watch anyting JA acts in again.

    @Ann: @Ann: Because if you actually understand the psychology, there is no causal link to violence in games, films, books, or any other media. If violence in the films, games, etc cause violence, then we might as well ban all thought, considering the imagination is far more vivid and powerful than any of them, and if merely seeing or thinking about graphic violence, even with context, is enough to cause us to commit it or desensitize us to it, then we should ban all news coverage and virtually all instances of conflict in films and games. The mind doesn’t work this way. We, from birth, understand the difference between reality and fantasy and we understand context. In most of the games and films, there is a cause worth fighting for, or the film depicts the violence to expose and call attention to it, in order to make the viewer aware of what caused it, and how it was dealt with or resolved by the character. It is cathartic, and catharsis is the entire point of films and games like it. If you’re talking about multi-player, the points and respawning are mechanics used to allow for a longer period and more enjoyable, or rather less annoying gameplay experience for the player, rather than tools used to trivialize the killing. Often it is said that the points systems are a main cause for desensitization, but actually they further the understanding that it is fantasy and not reality. The link to supposed desensitization doesn’t make logical sense, and professors, and researchers, all the way to the FBI have profiled and studied the killers from every modern school shooting to death, and there has not been a single link found from anyone with credibility on the subject.

  • wiphoenix

    One of these things is not like the others one of these things is kinda the same, if you can guess……

  • Matt

    @Ann: Also, R-rated already means restricted, so that would be redundant. Give this episode of Penn and Teller a look. It has both sides of the argument, and is entertaining as is every episode of the show, so you shouldn’t be bored and you’ll hopefully see how ridiculous the argument is under any close examination. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MaF9nbLo8as

  • Matt

    @debra g.: It’s a redundant idea. The R-rating already stands for restricted. If parents choose to let their kids watch them, they’d do the same for x, only now the films would be included with porn, and would probably have a ridiculous amount of extra sex in them, if not straight up porn.

  • wiphoenix

    How do we ban mothers blinded by love that will not institutionalize their deranged children even knowing how dangerous they are? How do we stop denial?

  • Matt

    @sillyme: You apparently don’t understand the point of any kind of art…it’s a word called catharsis. Definition of CATHARSIS

    1
    : purgation
    2
    a : purification or purgation of the emotions (as pity and fear) primarily through art
    b : a purification or purgation that brings about spiritual renewal or release from tension
    3
    : elimination of a complex by bringing it to consciousness and affording it expression
    And behold: The entire point for any kind of art. Also, considering that the entire reason we watch any kind of film, play any kind of game, or read any kind of book is conflict, and without conflict, we’d be watching everyday life, which no one would find entertaining because it isn’t challenging or engaging, and highly predictable. You’d be lying your ass if if you say you’d watch for any other reason.

  • cmac

    Stop putting your money toward movies, books, video games, TV shows, etc. that are violent. That will get the entertainment industry’s attention.

  • Matt

    @buckerbuck: You kinda need a gun to survive in a zombie apocalypse. Did you even read what the picture was advertising? Do you understand context? What about logic and reason? No? Hyperbole or demagoguery? Sigh…

  • couper

    I love how people want to limit violence in games and movies. How about parents limit THEIR children. Don’t want your kids seeing violent movies? Don’t let them go. Don’t like that violent video game? Don’t buy it for your kdi. It’s as simple as that.

    Hollywood doesn’t control what kids see, parents do.

  • december

    rediculous annoying commercial wth celebrities who can not only afford whatever weapons their heart desires, they can also afford to walk around with armed security guards to protect them against the crazies. I am 150% with the NRA, citizens have the right to be able to protect themselves as well as their family while on the road, or at home. I say give anyone applying for a gun licence a COMPLETE backround check including psychiatric, mental or emotional at every point in their life no matter what, and have a qualified board of local citizens in that county determine wether this person should be allowed to own/carry a weapon of ny sort, and ALL persons that already have a license should go through the same evaluation every couple of years/mandatory or lose your license. Also for those who are licensed stricter laws of fines and jail time for neglegence in case another person or child finds and uses their weapon in a criminal manner, make them 100% responsible for any crimes committed with their weapon for not keeping it safe and/or secure. the shooter at sandy hook was unstable yet his own mother knowing this bought him weapons, if she would have survived his rampage she should hae been held partly if not mostly responsible for her sons actions on that day.

  • december

    oh and by the way, my sons have been playing ALL the video games invented from 1980′s to present and have watched ALL of todays violent movies with zombies guns violence & some nudity, you know why? because WE CAN”T AVOID IT! thats why, its everywhere, and i rather them watch it at home with us, their parents where we can tell them “it’s only a movie” we should never harm another person like that in real life, and you know what my boys are the kindest, most gentle men, they are decent and caring, they are 20 and 26 years old, videos and movies dont have ANYTHING to do with violent crimes, violent crimes are committed by individuals who were ALREADY BORN defective. there were no video games or movies when JACK THE RIPPER murdered…………

  • Two way street

    If we truly want to make change, it has to be applied at all levels.

    Movies, television, video games and music need to seriously reconsider what they push out to the mainstream and take their share of responsibility for the the negative influence and motivation they provide perpetrators of violence and our youth.

    Lawmakers need to ensure the safety of our citizens by getting tougher on crime and not minimizing it as what is taking place in California with Assembly Bill 109 and the release of thousands of violent offenders under the guise that their current offenses aren’t violent. Please reference the boarding house murders in Northridge, CA by a so called non-violent offender.

    To ensure safety with the proposed initiatives, we need to hire more law enforcement and not scale back with budget cuts.

    We need to reinvest into mental health. It has to be a priority!

    If we’re serious about the safety of our communities, we shouldn’t explore the legalization of marijuana. Knowing the illness and death that alcohol and nicotine have caused over the years, if given the chance, would you make them legal? If you’re answer is no, why on earth would we make marijuana legal. Imagine the illness, injury and death that it will cause with DUI and cancer. If we’re serious, then we all have to sacrifice a little to save a lot.

    Lastly, the celebrities that appeared on “Demand a Plan” should take the first steps and sacrifice by not profiting from any form of violence. Jeremy Renner! Are you serious? Donate all of your salary earned from the Bourne film! Beyone! Ask your husband how he’s profited from violence. Ellen, no more entertainers on your show that profit from violence.

    Do my demands sound unreasonable? Well if you want me to sacrifice my Constitutional right, I’ll seriously consider it if you do the same. Let’s see what you plan on doing to set the new tone. In closing, if we care about having a safe country, we can’t pick and chose. We have to be all in. I’ll be waiting.

    Sincerely,

    Law abiding blue collar citizen

  • merryd

    yes, it’s a well-made and appropriately dramatic video, but this is what these people do for a living. beyonce especially really needs to get over herself with the self-congratulatory melodrama. that egotistical c**t doesn’t give a crap about anything but her image.

    ANYWAY, as has probably been mentioned numerous times in the comments section, nobody serious should care what these people have to say. they are not politicians or experts. they’re entertainers. and i’d be willing to bet that almost every single actor featured has appeared in films/TV that showcased/glorified/glamourized violence.

  • merryd

    also, all you republican wingnuts clinging to your second amendment rights need to relax. the government isn’t tryin’ ta take yer guns. they’re simply trying to reduce the ease with which dangerous weapons can be obtained. if you are indeed the cooperative, law-abiding citizens you claim to be, any new laws shouldn’t be a problem for you.

  • Angry and Ashamed

    I’m really disappointed. I’m tired of “Americans” demanding the regulation of inanimate objects when a demand for better mental health care is more appropriate. 21 children died in Connecticut, not 20. Murder is in the heart and in diseased minds, not in the hand. In a country where paramilitary fantasy is the demand of civilians and the demand placated by every entertainment industry in this nation, how can people be surprised when fantasy and emotional disturbance shake hands. Any one of the celebrities in the above PSA can be found guilty of capitalizing on gun fare and use whether in a monologue or a script. Why is the Bourne franchise so popular with the age demographic 12 – 25? Sympathy for the “good guy”? Someone who volunteered to be morally dead? Sympathy for an anti-hero? To whom are these culpable culprits pointing a finger? They don’t want to be responsible. It is easier to blame their elected officials. Should our gov’t regulate our 2nd amendment rights so that the 1st amendment can speak so freely? In for a penny, in for a pound. Everyone of the people, every one of the “Americans” should re-evaluate what needs to really happen. Automatic weapons are responsible for less than 10% of murders involving firearms in this nation. Handguns are responsible for the rest. I wonder how many of them have handguns, shotguns, or rifles waiting in fear of a stalker. Our nation most definitely needs to take action but regulating fire arms is a stop gap and a cost-less nothing to placate the masses which don’t know what questions they should really be asking. A more insular self examination of our laws is a beginning. More culpability of the gun owner would be a start. How many are calling for better regulation of knives and meat cleavers after the tragedy that happened in China on the very same day of the Connecticut atrocity. Or do the 22 children that were horribly maimed and traumatized not affect or effect American sensibilities because they live somewhere else? Shame on all of them. We’re either in it together or we’re not in it at all. What of the 178 school children that have been killed by drone attacks committed by our illustrious president? Do the children – dead by our hand – not have a voice? Should they not be afforded the same consideration given to American children? Are they only casualties of war and forgotten for the reason they have no representation or for the reason that the media doesn’t tell us about them? Are we sheeple accepting whatever spin is spun and just keep on keeping on because we choose to live blindly? We should be questioning our gov’t and challenging its’ authority at every turn. It is our responsibility to hold it accountable for its’ every action and inaction both foreign and domestic. I am tired of the nonsensical rants and ravings of ill and misinformed if informed at all celebrities. Shut up and make another Bourne movie. Shut up and make another video promoting arson. Shut up and utilize your right to freedom of speech. Shut up and attack the cause of the Connecticut atrocity and not the tools. Your ignorance is showing and you should be ashamed.

    gun control or gun ban is just a surface or band-aid solution. the gun man’s behaviour didn’t just happen overnight. it maybe a result from years of abuse, bullying, neglect, apathy from other people. i sincerely hope that this will stop. solution can only from from changing our attitudes and how we treat other human beings.

    Changing gun laws will only slow these people down, not stop them! If someone wants to get their hands on a weapon, they’ll do it regardless of the law. What America needs is better mental health awareness and assistance.

  • Such BS

    Why has JJ put this message in with these celebs who just want to be noticed. What a waste of time. As if Jen Aniston cares about anything else but having her name and pic posted in justJareds.
    Except this time she doesn’t have to pretend she is shopping with Heidi Bivens man. If you asked JA to speak on this subject she would be slurring her speech while trying to read the teleprompter or a page and even doing that she always screws up.

    Lets here about this from somebody in HW who can make a difference instead of saying one word.. How stupid !.

  • Amazing!

    Great people!!Thank you for doing this video!!
    SPREAD THE WORD!!
    BAN DEADLY WEAPONS!!!!!!!!!

  • yep

    Love Jen! Video is well done however I don’t agree with gun control. I agree common sense should take place when someone is in the home that is an unstable person like putting most of your weapons in safe keeping somewhere else beside home so they can’t get to them.

    Is Jen’s boyfriend still sporting that gun necklace? I used to think she had nice hair, but hers is the worst of the lot. Can’t believe she’s pushing a hair product and it looks like Miss Hotness needs to go to rehab. Her picture looks like a drunken mug shot.

  • no fool

    ok. all of you, who make the media responsible for things like that – YOU.ARE.DUMB. really, really dumb!
    the problem has nothing to do with media at all!
    I live in germany and the people here watch the same god damn movies, play the same video-games and hear the same music! & guess what? stories like that happen maybe 1 time in 10 years!
    & why’s that?? BECAUSE IT’S ILLEGAL TO OWN WEAPONS HERE!! & beacuse of that it’s of course not so easy to get one & just randomly shoot around!!!
    … gosh @.@
