Washington, Dec. 22 (ANI): Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Beyonce Knowles and other celebrities have featured in a new public service announcement against gun violence, in the wake of the US school shooting in Connecticut, which claimed 27 lives.

In the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children and six adults before turning the gun on himself last Friday.

The one-and-a-half minute video clip features the celebrity activists asking, "How many more colleges? How many more classrooms? How many more movie theatres? How many more houses of faith?" before lawmakers tighten regulations?

A cast of artists and entertainers, including Michelle Williams, Reese Witherspoon, Kate Hudson, Cameron Diaz, Ellen DeGeneres, Julianne Moore, Chris Rock, Jamie Foxx, Olivia Munn, Selena Gomez, Paul Rudd, Jon Hamm, Jennifer Westfeldt, Will Ferrell, Sarah Silverman, Amy Poehler, Adam Scott, Rashida Jones, John Slattery, Jeremy Renner, Conan O'Brien, and others, have featured in the clip released on Friday on DemandaPlan.org, the Daily Mail reported.

The effort, a campaign from Mayors Against Illegal Guns, sees the actors, singers, comedians and activists deliver an emotional plea to viewers to demand action from lawmakers and donate to the cause.

Looking into the camera, they read through a list of some of the 31 similar attacks carried out in the US since Columbine in 1999.

"Virginia Tech. Tucson. Aurora. Fort Hood. Oak Creek. Newtown. How many more?" they ask.

Seven hundred fifty mayors and 750,000 grassroots supporters have signed the campaign's celebrity-backed petition. (ANI)
