Four NBA stars, including reigning league MVP Steph Curry, appeared in an ad for Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety.

The ad featuring Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony, Joakim Noah and Curry was released Wednesday morning. It opens with Curry telling a story about how he heard about a three-year-old child getting shot. (RELATED: Star-Studded Gun Control Movie Gets The Green Light)

It continues with the NBA stars supporting gun control while intercut with regular people arguing for more gun control. At one point Anthony says, “the gun should never be an option.”


This certainly isn’t the first time a gun control group has attempted to use celebrities to push its agenda. Three years ago Mayors Against Illegal Guns released a similar ad packed with Hollywood celebrities advocating for stricter gun laws.
