Justin Bieber Leads Campaign for ‘Stricter Gun Control' In The US
Star endorses push for new gun laws in wake of Florida shoot
Justin Bieber has backed a massive campaign pushing for stricter gun control in the wake of tragic Florida shooting which left 17 dead in Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.
As America continues to reel from the aftermath of the tragic shooting event, Bieber, who is massively influential amongst teens, boasting millions of followers on both Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, has endorsed the forthcoming march for stricter gun control.
The objective of the march is to force the government to change gun laws in the US. The March For Our Lives will see thousands of students descend on Washington on March 24 to promote gun control.

Bieber Posting on Twitter: “Help these kids and sign their petition now”.
NME reports: The petition was created by students and asks elected officials to approve a law that bans the sale of assault weapons, as well as prohibiting the sale of high-capacity magazines.
It will also reportedly close loopholes in background checks that allow “dangerous people who shouldn’t be allowed to purchase firearms to slip through the cracks.”
Last week, the campaign was also backed by Harry Styles.
Last week, a Welsh teenager was also jailed for life after being found guilty of plotting a terror attack on the day of a Justin Bieber concert in Cardiff.
The 17-year-old, named as Lloyd Gunton from Rhondda Cynon Taff, was detained by police on June 30, 2017, the same day as the singer’s gig at the city’s Principality Stadium, formerly known as the Millennium Stadium.
Kim Kardashian also took to Twitter following tragic Florida shooting to demand that government take action to introduce Gun laws. The reality TV star demanded action from the government to put a tighter control on guns following the massacre, that is now the deadliest school shooting since 26 were massacred at the Connecticut school Sandy Hook in 2012.
