Music icon Madonna has urged her fans to “wake up” and push for strict gun laws in America.
The singer shares her strong views on gun control in a hard-hitting new video for a song called Gun Control.
It depicts a shooting in a night-club, showing people being injured and killed by gunfire.
WARNING: you may find the content of this video upsetting.
The release of the video follows a number of tweets in which Madonna appealed to people to “insist on common-sense gun safety legislation.”
She urged her followers to “honour the victims” of gun violence by demanding gun control and also supporting organisations that campaign on this issue.
Wake up and insist on common-sense gun safety legislation. Innocent lives depend on it. Join me in supporting the following organizations: @Everytown @AMarch4OurLives @GAGnoguns @sandyhook @HRC @TheTaskForce @TransEquality @NCADV @1Pulse4America @SUPGVNetwork @MPJInstitute
