Justin Bieber & Other Celebs Tweet Support For Gun Control & Sign Sandy Hook Promise!

Regardless of how you feel about guns and their current role in our society, you can't deny there IS a gun violence problem in the United States, and that we should be doing SOMETHING, anything, that could potentially help prevent another Sandy Hook massacre.

Justin Bieber, Bella Thorne and Ashton Kutcher are just a few of the MANY celebs who have signed the Sandy Hook Promise, a declaration that states:

"I Promise to honor the 26 lives lost at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

I Promise to do everything I can to encourage and support common sense solutions that make my community and our country safer from similar acts of violence."

Gun violence is NOT an insurmountable issue.

And hopefully, if we work together as a HUMAN community, we can collectively come up with a real solution.

We have to at least try, right?

Quentin Tarantino Says Talking Movie Violence Disrespects Sandy Hook Victims

Quentin Tarantino has had to play a lot of defense over his newest film Django Unchained!

Both the language and the violence have come under fire all throughout the film's release so far, and QT– never one to stay on the QT for long — has happily discussed his vision.

But when the director was recently asked about the appropriateness of film violence in the wake of the Sandy Hook tragedy, he was offended! He said:

Woman Arrested After Fake Newtown Victim Charity Scam! Disgusting!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal Matters

Noah Pozner Fake Charity

Nouel Alba has been arrested for lying to federal investigators, but that may be just the tip of the iceberg of her crimes.

Prosecutors say Alba solicited donations to the "Funeral Fund" of Noah Pozner, one of the victims of Newtown, Connecticut's Sandy Hook school shooting.

The problem is, Alba has absolutely no relation to the late Noah and as far as anyone in his family knows, no plans to help them with funeral or any other costs!

Of course, Alba denies ever posing as Noah's aunt or asking for any money, but is it true?

Using a tragedy victim's name to scam money from kindhearted people? How deplorable can you get!!

Alba faces up to five years in federal prison for her crimes, in addition to a maximum fine of $250,000.

Good riddance!

Sandy Hook Shooting Pushes LAPD To Move Gun Buyback Program To TODAY

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitik

SO many props to the Los Angles Police Department!!

The LAPD's honorable gun buyback program, which generally occurs in May, was moved to TODAY (December 26th) in response to the tragic Sandy Hook elementary school shootings which took place December 14th.

The program urges gun owners to bring their weapons to one of two approved locations — the Van Nuys Masonic Temple and Los Angeles Sports Arena — where they can anonymously exchange their guns for grocery store gift cards.

A participant in the gun buyback program can get $100 for pistols, shotguns and rifles, and $200 for assault weapons.

According to the LAPD, this program has collected over 8,000 guns since its inception in 2009!

If only we could turn this small effort of getting guns off of the streets into a nationwide initiative!

Imagine how many LIVES could be saved?!
