In the wake of the Vegas shooting, Hollywood actors are urging people to “call Congress” and ask them to oppose any gun measures backed by the National Rifle Association.


In a video for Everytown for Gun Safety, Emma Stone, Bill Hader, Melissa McCarthy, and others voice support for gun control legislation and ask viewers to text Everytown for Gun Safety so that they can be connected with their congressmen.

“The mass shooting in Las Vegas has all of us grieving, scared, and angry,” Stone begins in the video.

“Knowing what to do about it can be confusing,” Bill Hader continues. “Here’s one thing that can make a difference right now.”

A number of celebrities then demonstrate calls to congressmen facilitated by Everytown where they oppose loosening regulations on suppressors–which they claim “would make mass shootings even more deadly than they already are”–and concealed carry reciprocity legislation.

Other celebrities included in the video are Julianne Moore, Jack Antonoff, Moby, and Cynthia Rowley.
