Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun-reform group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, has teamed up with several cartoonists and celebrities, and released an animated short that repeats the group’s demands for Congress to enact gun-control legislation.
Cartoonists Demand Action to End Gun Violence, narrated by Philip Seymour Hoffman and Julianne Moore, ask “How many more classrooms? How many more street corners?…How many more movie theaters?” in reference to the country’s recent spat of gun-related violence.
While imploring the viewer to demand action, they assert, “It’s time for our leaders to act…right now.”
