Music Manager Scooter Braun weighs in on US gun control

Scooter Braun

Scooter Braun, manager to some of the biggest artists in the music industry, has just joined the conversation on gun control in the US. He gave his thoughts via an Instagram post featuring an image with the text ‘WE CAN DO MORE’ – this is following the Orlando night club shooting this week, the deadliest shooting in US history which left 50 people dead and 53 injured.

He said:

“Last night I was thinking about our nation…my son…this world…what I am contributing to it.. And I posted this…and today I post it again. I’m not asking Americans to lose rights..I’m not asking everyone to turn in their guns. I’m asking my fellow Americans to acknowledge we need a system to protect our future and the freedoms we claim to hold so dear.”

“We need gun control laws to add to our freedoms not take away. We need to make the right decisions for the next generation. I have so much more to say but for now all I will say is how many more speeches and tragedies will it take? We only get a certain amount of time on this earth and our responsibility is to our kids.”

“How can we look our sons and daughters in the eye with all we have now seen and not try? Not try to better this world for THEM!? We are better than this. God bless America.. But God isn’t going to change this… He gave us free choice. Let’s choose to make a difference.”
