The National Rifle Association held a press conference today and demanded the access to guns be protected in the wake of the tragic Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
“The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” said Wayne LaPierre, the NRA’s vice president.
Hours later, a PSA was released featuring celebrities urging a plan to increase gun control.
Among the celebrities in the video were Jamie Foxx, Chris Rock, Beyoncé, John Legend, Jessica Alba and Victor Cruz.
In the video, the celebrities list multiple mass shootings, from Columbine to Virginia Tech, in an attempt to draw attention to the issue of gun control.
