Celebs Call for Gun Control on ‘National Gun Violence Awareness Day’

Breitbart – by AWR Hawkins

Hollywood celebrities donned orange outfits for “gun safety” and tweeted support for more gun laws on Thursday as part of the #WearOrange campaign promoted by gun control groups including Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action.

The day of action to push for more gun control laws came just one day after a former UCLA student allegedly shot and killed professor William Klug in an on-campus engineering building on Wednesday, and then turned the gun on himself. On Thursday, the LAPD identified the gunman as former doctoral student Mainak Sarka, according to ABC7.  

On Thursday, celebrities including Sarah Silverman and filmmakers Spike Lee and Ron Howard donned orange outfits and took to social media to promote the gun control groups’ social media campaign.

Ron Howard tweeted photo of himself in orange with the caption: “Think, talk, write your lawmakers, vote & yes, wear orange. Effective gun safety is a must.”

Actress and gun control proponent Julianne Moore tweeted a photo of herself wearing an orange hat with the caption: “On my way to work this morning. Wear orange.” She made sure to copy the tweet to Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action.

Comedian Sarah Silverman, actress Brooke Shields and more joined in:


This is the second consecutive year in which gun control proponents have worn orange on June 2 and have urged others to follow suit. They wear orange in a show of solidarity against gun rights.

  2. The “celebs”?

    Why does anyone give a rat’s rectum what the celebs think about anything?

    They’re stupid, arrogant, perverse, uneducated, conceited, and are usually only employed because they performed sexual favors for producers, but morons value their opinions because they’re from the magical world of the divine idiot box.

    The Jew-TV: The giver of truth and wisdom controls the minds of millions of Americans, who are only capable of searching for more entertainment.

    Did you see how that skilled craftsman handles that remote control?

    1. You are absolutely right Jolly, if these “celeb’s” had a brain, it woul dbe lonely, if they had two, they would rattle. Who care’s what these skill-less hacks have to say about anything?
