Harry Styles wants to prevent any more deaths caused by reckless gun use. 

He has partnered with Everytown for Gun Safety organisation which advocates for gun control and is against gun violence. 

The singer announced the partnership over the weekend. 

According to Rolling Stone, the 'Golden' hitmaker has reportedly pledged $1-million of his current Love On Tour to the Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund. 

“Along with all of you, I have been absolutely devastated by the recent string of mass shootings in America, culminating at Robb Elementary School in Texas,” he wrote in a statement on Instagram.

“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," she wrote. 

Styles' announcement follows last week's mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. The shooting claimed 21 lives.

The singer is not the first celebrity to voice their concerns about the massive shootings. 

Last week, Taylor Swift also took to Instagram to call for a regulation of weapons after mass shootings that have been taking place in America.

She said the recent shootings in Uvalde, Buffalo and Lugana Woods have left her "filled with rage and grief, and so broken".
