As sure as evil, disturbed individuals are going to occasionally rise up to bring harm to innocent people, gun grabbers are going to look to exploit the tragedy to push their gun control agenda.

Following the shooting in Las Vegas, where Stephen Paddock opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest Festival from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, killing 59 people and wounding hundreds more, Everytown for Gun Safety released a public service announcement featuring a number of celebrities.

Emma Stone, Melissa McCarthy, and Sheryl Crow are among the top-tier celebrities featured in the video produced by the Michael Bloomberg-financed group and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

“The mass shooting in Las Vegas has all of us grieving, scared and angry,” Stone says to open the ad.

Other celebrities advocating for stricter gun laws in the U.S are Julianne Moore, Jack Antonoff, Elizabeth Banks, Moby, and Cynthia Rowley.

They encourage viewers to engage in the gun control effort by texting Everytown for Gun Safety, who’ll gladly tell them precisely what to say as they contact their elected officials.

The message?

“To reject NRA’s radical agenda.”

The video was directed by Moore’s husband, Bart Freundlich.

“Everyone wants to know how they can help after Las Vegas,” Freundlich said in a statement, according to CNN. “I was really moved and heartened by the response of so many friends and colleagues who jumped at the opportunity to be a part of making this video.”
