  • Jimmy Kimmel has slowly become the conscience of the American Late Night scape — and on certain issues, especially healthcare, he has become an important agent of change in America. Kimmel continues his streak this time talking directly to the Republican NRA paid off politicians who try to get America to not discuss gun control directly after a school shooting. Kimmel insists that we must, that is if we actually care about safety, or if we actually care about children or the victims of the shooting.

    Kimmel encourages those who want to do this to go to Everytown.org for more information on how to help fight gun control, and how to get rid of politicians who care so much more about getting money from the NRA than they do about children not getting shot. The video is powerful, and Jimmy Kimmel’s raw emotional state gets the urgent importance of the message through.

    What do you think of Kimmel’s message? Does it carry the capacity in making any real change? Will you be donating to Everytown.org? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
