Famed musician Stevie Wonder got serious about gun control during a recent concert at Central Park’s SummerStage.
Wonder broke from his concert to impart a few words about being more accountable with guns, fixing the planet, and one another.
“As much as we have made some incredible strides, we have also really gone to this crazy place, like them against us and us against them” said Wonder. “We really need to do that thing called fixing the planet, by fixing each other, fixing ourselves. That includes everyone, me and us, in the spirit of love.”
Wonder said it doesn’t matter what organization you affiliate with, so long as we hold ourselves accountable.
“What we have to do, whether you’re NRA or whatever, is find a place of everyone being accountable for every gun we have here,” said Wonder. “If you want to shoot the gun, then claim the bullet,” he continued. “It doesn’t deprive people of their freedom, but it does hold people accountable because you can’t take a life back.”
