Founders of the organization had loved ones killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School almost four years ago.

The PSA, released on Friday, is a part of the gun-violence prevention group's campaign called "Know the Signs."

"People who are at risk of hurting themselves or others often show signs and signals before an act of violence takes place," the Sandy Hook Promise website reads.

"When you don’t know what to look for, it can be easy to miss signs, or dismiss them as unimportant, sometimes with tragic consequences," it says.


Tons of people have responded to the stunning video. One person said that the PSA gave him chills.
