Russell Simmons Demands Senate Dems Act Alone On Gun Control

hip hop producer Russell Simmons, co-founder of the Def Jam label, some of whose stars glorify gun violence, is demanding that Senate Democrats alone pass sweeping gun control measures.

In email to supporters, Simmons called on Democrats in the Senate to take the lead and pass gun control legislation.“Don’t let the NRA drown out your voice. Demand that Democratic senators lead. Yours in the fight to end gun violence,” he wrote in the email distributed by the progressive group Courage Campaign.

Simmons in the past has given support to gun control, but his new email was part of a campaign to push the issue in advance of this week’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing of Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s gun control legislation.

“With Democrats in charge, all of these measures should be approved by the committee so that they get a full vote in the Senate,” said Simmons.
