Comedian Amy Schumer had a request on Thursday for any buddies and fans who may well be excited about sending her marriage ceremony items: Consider donating to the anti-gun violence group Everytown for Gun Safety as an alternative.
Schumer, who tied the knot with chef Chris Fischer on Tuesday, made the request by way of Instagram only a day after 17 other folks have been killed through a gunman at a Parkland, Florida, highschool. Mayci Breaux and Jillian Johnson died in a 2015 capturing at a Lafayette, Louisiana, theater that was once appearing Schumer’s film “Trainweck.”
And Everytown for Gun Safety shaped in a while after the 2012 bloodbath at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
According to the advocacy crew, the Parkland incident marks the 8th college capturing this 12 months that has ended in damage or loss of life. In overall, U.S. faculties are averaging an alarming one capturing each and every 60 hours this 12 months.
