I didn't even realize I could recognize this many celebrities, but every single one of them is advocating for more gun regulation. It's time for our leaders to act.

Great video - and if the US population is around 315,000,000 and the NRA membership is around 4,000,000, it certainly seems like this should be a no-brainer. Majority rules!

Signed up. Lots of Hollywood people are agianst guns. NO MORE!

Here is a petition from Diane Feinstein:
Dear Congress:

"Enough is enough."

"We need to do more to protect our citizens, especially our children, from tragedies like the one in Newtown."

"I support Dianne Feinsteinís effort to ban the sale, import, transfer, and possession of assault weapons and high-capacity clips, magazines, and strips."

"Itís not the whole answer. But itís an important start. And I urge you to take this action immediately."

LINK:

http://www.diannefeinstein2012.com/petition/w1212wbe/

The site may be busy with so many people trying to sign.
Diane was the originator of banning assault weapons years ago. Congress allowed it to expire.

Ty, Kit.

When I saw this had already been posted as I went to post, I knew it had to be you Kit--thanks so much for ensuring as many as possible get to view this and keep the conversation alive until we get the needed action to make this country safer again.

I hate guns & I want 2013 to be the year where the most anti gun regulation has been passed in the US. With that being said it doesn't matter which celebs are for or against guns. Everyone is convinced on their own gun slant and it doesn't matter who says what.

FEAR has really gotten control of the USA. People who own gun live in FEAR and feel more safe owning one whether it is true or not ( actually not). And the other non-gun owners are in FEAR of guns and people who own them.
How do we get rid of the FEAR and brainwashing of gun-ownership that got us to this place we are at.

I do believe that the NRA does have an affect on how people think about their guns. The NRA has used the second amendment as a device to strike fear of loss of individual rights, to urge people into wanting to fight for the right own any kind of gun available.

shared this: One of the ways to help cut back on criminal use of arms is to make it illegal to sell guns and ammunution online and without a background check, and to enforce consequences for anyone caught selling them illegally.

I saw a short media piece today with Wayne LaPierre still harping about Mr Obama trying to take away 2nd amendment rights and I became even more disgusted. The 2nd amendment guarantees the right to bear arms, but it does not say anything about what types of arms or conditions of such ownership. The NRA would likely argue that fact means there are no restrictions or conditions. I would argue that restrictions and conditions (gun control) do NOT go against the 2nd amendment because ownership is still there. Arielle I was thinking the very same thing a few days ago. How do the rights of 4 million supercede the rights of 326 million Americans?

I know of several people who have given up their NRA membership because of the wingnut faction. If 74% of NRA members favour gun control, that's 2,960,000 people, what would happen if they got smart about who the NRA represents and cancelled their memberships? I think for one that old Wayne would be out of an over paid position. This is not Wayne's World. This is Our World!

Thanks Jim for the petition link. Signed.

Oh, but today in the newspaper (Augusta Chronicle), I discovered that the gun problem is the fault of atheists and homosexuals - Whew! And I was so sure it was the gun nuts and militants.... (there is a whole lot of stupid in the south....)

Jeeze Louise! Arielle, please tell me that the Augusta Chronicle is a tabloid paper that nobody reads! Please, oh please! I can't believe that a respectable newspaper would print such crap. If they're not blaming Islamists for something, then they are blaming atheists. And of course, they blame gays for everything. I swear, if the sun went super nova, they'd blame the atheists, the Islamists and the gays as the lights went out permanently! What a bunch of certified dip-shits!

Of course, the problem is not with automatic and semi-automatic assault weapons, but the Gays, atheists and anyone else that stands as reminder that this is a country based on freedom. I do have grave doubts that the founding fathers considered the right to kill those who think or believe differently as targets. There is always SOMEONE to blame when those on the right find others that disagree with their thinking.

Great post--thanks Kit.

Of whom or what are Americans afraid hat they think so many firearms are necessary, desirable, or should be their right to own to protect themselves? There is no frontier anymore.

Actually, the movies make the days of frontier times seem that each person was a gun toting, fast shooting cowboy, nothing could be farther from the the truth.
