Adam Scott, Chris Rock, Tony Bennett and Amanda Peet appeared on Capitol Hill on Wednesday to push Congress to pass gun control legislation.
“I still haven’t gotten over Connecticut,” Bennett said in a press conference, referring to the Newtown school shootings.
“I’m just here to support the president of the United States,” said Chris Rock. “The president and the first lady are kind of like the mom and the dad of the country, and when your dad says something, you listen. And when you don’t, it usually bites you in the ass later on.”
“These shootings are rapidly becoming part of our culture, something you almost anticipate hearing about when you turn on your television or your computer,” said Adam Scott. “But this one, it was clear to me as it was to millions of others, if we as a people don’t act after Sandy Hook, then what’s next?”
