Celebs PSA for gun control
“How many more colleges? How many more classrooms? How many more movie theaters? How many more houses of faith?” the stars in the video ask.

Co-founded in 2006 by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, the coalition has grown from a committed group of 15 members to more than 800 mayors, including Republicans, Democrats and Independents, from major cities and small towns around the country.
According to the New York Times, Mayor Michael Bloomberg plans to spend millions of dollars over the next two years to aid political candidates opposed to the gun lobby. In addition to reaching out to conservative legislators, Bloomberg has had conversations with the White House about Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential task force on guns.
