Snoop Lion released his song, ‘No Guns Allowed’, shortly after the Sandy Hook tragedy, which featured his daughter, Cori Broadus, on vocals. Now the father of three is teaming up with The League of Young Voters to start a non-violence campaign aimed at bringing an end to gun wars.

The League of Young Voters initially took interest in Snoop after he released ‘No Guns Allowed,’ and decided to name their grassroots non-violence campaign after the hit single. Snoop was delighted to hear of the League’s decision and decided to partner with the organization telling the press
, “I wanted to make some music to try to help the next person who was thinking about loading a gun, going to a school and shooting. Maybe it would help him put that gun down and think about what he was doing before they [acted]. No Guns Allowed’ is a really important song to me. I’m humbled that an organization like the League of Young Voters Education Fund supports what I’m saying in it and is taking action. Especially since they have been doing work for a long time to spread an anti-violence message in our communities.”
Snoop Lion and wife Shante have three kids in all. Cori is the couple’s only daughter.
