CHVRCHES’ lead singer Lauren Mayberry voiced her concerns today about gun control in the US with a short video posted on Twitter in wake of the mass shooting yesterday in Sutherland Springs, Texas which left 26 dead and many more injured. As a child, Mayberry grew up in the town of Dunblane, Scotland which suffered the deadliest mass shooting in British history and ultimately led to stricter gun control laws within the country. Mayberry, who now lives in America, reflected on this memory and the resulting actions taken by the British, has called upon U.S. politicians to take action on gun control and mental healthcare funding. She stated, "prayers are not what stopped more atrocities like Dunblane happening in the UK, gun control did." Watch the video below.
