19 Celebrities You Didn't Know Support Stricter Gun Control Laws

In America, gun violence has grown to become a key part of our society. Amnesty International estimates that around 2,000 people are injured by gunshots every day. According to Gun Violence Archive, in 2019 there were more mass shootings than days in the year, with 417 mass shootings. A little over 15,000 people died last year from guns and just under 30,000 were injured. These numbers are pretty consistent dating back to 2014.

Companies like Walmart and Dick's Sporting Goods have had histories of selling guns in their stores. Although companies like Dick's are eliminating their gun and hunting sections, the ease of access across our country to getting a firearm is still severely lenient.

A lot of celebrities think enough is enough when it comes to guns, championing legislation that would outlaw guns entirely, create stricter procedures for procuring a gun, and trying to start conversations on the topic in whatever ways they can.

These are 19 celebrities you may not have known were leading that charge.
