"Open Letter to Congress" from leading artists and executives in the music industry

June 23, 2016

 

Billboard united a large number of musicians and executives to call out Congress demanding change. 

 

"As leading artists and executives in the music industry, we are adding our voices to the chorus of Americans demanding change." Billboard writes

 

"Music has always been celebrated communally, on dance floors and at concert halls. But this life -- going to school or church or work -- now is threatened, because of gun violence in this country. The one thing that connects the recent tragedies in Orlando is that it is far too easy for dangerous people to get their hands on guns.

 

We call on Congress to do more to prevent the gun violence that kills more than 90 Americans every day and injures hundreds more. Billboard and the undersigned implore you -- the people who are elected to represent us -- to close the deadly loopholes that put the lives of so many music fans, and all of us, at risk."

 

The petition is signed by household names around the globe, asking Congress to require background checks for every gun sale and block suspected terrorists from buying guns. 

 

Read on how you can take action to end gun violence.
