Stevie Wonder calls for end to gun violence

Stevie Wonder has called for an end to gun violence.

The 'Isn't She Lovely' hitmaker instead urged people to concentrate on "fixing" each other through the "spirit of love".

Speaking on Central Park's SummerStage in New York, he said: "As much as we have made some incredible strides, we have also really gone to this crazy place, like them against us and us against them.

"We really need to do that thing called fixing the planet, by fixing each other, fixing ourselves. That includes everyone, me and us, in the spirit of love."

The 65-year-old star insisted everyone should be "accountable" for every gun, citing his 'Claim the Bullet' campaign, which he says does not encroach on anyone's entitlement to freedom.

He added: "We have gotta find a place, we as Americans of all ethnicities, we've got to put an end to it ... What we have to do, whether you're NRA or whatever, is find a place of everyone being accountable for every gun we have here.

"If you want to shoot the gun, then claim the bullet. It doesn't deprive people of their freedom, but it does hold people accountable because you can't take a life back."
