America’s gun control laws are currently entrenched in political gridlock.

Which means the public’s devastation over mass shootings — like the one which took place at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon on Thursday (Oct. 1) — and widespread calls for change are consistently marred by the exhausting reality that ultimately little to nothing is being done to stop gun-related violence. And more than 30 American lives are taken each and every day by guns as a result of the legislative stagnation on the issue.

Ian Somerhalder — star of “The Vampire Diaries” and founding namesake of the Ian Somerhalder Foundation — is pitching in his considerable star power to try and influence supporters to rise up and demand that a change finally be made. And he had a nifty platform for his message, too.

In a live Facebook video Ian made on Friday (Oct. 2) in between takes on the set of “TVD” Season 7’s production, the actor-slash-advocate issued a call for his fans to speak up and speak loudly on both climate change and gun control legislation.

While promoting Know Tomorrow, an ongoing college student-centric action on climate change event, Somerhalder made his plea for students to fight for stricter gun control in addition to demanding adequate environmental protection measures.

“I don’t know if anyone [else] is so sick and tired of schools being bombarded with bullets and guns,” he said. “There’s no need to make our educational institutions dangerous places. This stops right now, today. Raise your voices.”
