“Today we see what we have become. With no real laws protecting us from guns, and with politicians supporting the NRA because the NRA supports them, we are not well represented.”
He added that "students are brave, demanding change in violent times" and said everybody needs to stand with them because "they are us, we are them."
Young also urged his fans to vote in the upcoming elections, for the sake of our children and the future.
Young has played a series of solo concerts at theaters all over the States during the past few months.
