Four people are killed every hour by firearms. Snoop Dogg aka Snoop Lion is trying to get guns off the streets. His reggae-tinged track “No Guns Allowed,” off his new Reincarnated LP, features his daughter Cori B and Drake. The song with lyrics, "No guns are allowed, in here tonight/ We're gonna have a free-for-all, no fights," has launched an anti-gun initiative where Snoop's telling Congress to "get of your asses" and do something about gun violence.
In retaliation to the background checks bill on gun purchases not passing in Congress recently, Snoop is supporting the "No Guns Allowed" grassroots campaign launched by the League of Young Voters Education Fund.
“‘No Guns Allowed’ is a really important song to me,” Snoop said in a statement. “I’m humbled that an organization like the League of Young Voters Education Fund supports what I’m saying in it and is taking action. Especially since they have been doing work for a long time to spread an anti-violence message in our communities.”
The "No Guns Allowed" movement asks that people take a pledge against violence and sign a petition in support of universal background checks and violence prevention programs. They encourage people to share their stories on social media using the hashtag #NoGunsAllowed.
