Harry Styles has pledged over $1 million to raise awareness about gun control measures following another horrific shooting in America at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, which claimed the lives of 19 pupils and two teachers.

Two days after Salvador Ramos, 18, went on a rampage and opened fire at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, the 28-year-old pop sensation announced his cooperation with Everytown for Gun Safety.

He stated he’ll work with the organization, whose objective is to end gun violence, by providing over $1 million in tour revenues, along with LiveNation, to support the non-efforts profits and share their suggested action items.’

The lone gunman shot and killed 19 young children, two teachers, and injured 17 others before being apprehended and killed by law police, making it the third-deadliest school shooting in the United States after the murders at Virginia Tech in 2007 and Sandy Hook Elementary in 2012.

On Friday, Styles posted a statement to his 45.2 million Instagram followers with the caption: ‘End gun violence’.

“Along with all of you, I have been absolutely devastated by the recent string of mass shootings in America, culminating at the latest in Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas”.

He further added, “On our North American tour, we will be partnering with Everytown who work to end gun violence, donating to support their efforts, and sharing their suggested action items. Love, H”.

He also shared a disturbing statistic from Everytown for Gun Safety, “Firearms are the #1 leading cause of death for American children and teens”.
