The video begins with a warning to viewers and shows how people, including Madonna, are shot down on a dance floor with an assault weapon. The scene is reminiscent of the pulse nightclub attack in 2016, in which 49 people were killed.

Madonna said that while weapon security and gun control are a big problem in the US, they do not believe it will be tackled properly.
She said she wants to see changes in the law, more people want to get involved and vote.

It's one thing she believes everyone can be involved with.
"You can do it through your art, you can do it through activism in your own community." She said. "There are so many levels and opportunities to do this, I try to kindle the fires and focus people on this crisis through my art and my own statements."
The video ends with a request to assist organizations in the fight for weapons security laws and statistics on the toll of gun violence.
"No one is safe," flashes the words on the screen. "Gun control, now."
