After news broke of the horrific mass shooting that occurred in Newtown, Connecticut, Hollywood celebrities called for more gun control.
See below for some of their messages they posted on Twitter:
Where is the love [?] I can’t believe this type of evil can happen…why would anyone kill children???…#protectchildrennotguns
“There’s no such thing as assault weapons. punching somebody in the face that’s an assault. If this guy had assault weapons those kids would still be alive . Lets start calling these weapons what they really are ” PEOPLE KILLERS”.”
“Gun control people!!! My heart is breaking. As a parent this is my worst nightmare.”
“A ban on semi-automatic assault weapons is a necessary first step toward resuscitating the soul of this country…”
“Just how is it that a mentally troubled teen can have access to a gun! #GunControl!!”
“No one is saying you can’t have your gun, crazy angry gun guy. But most of the country is tired of how easy it is to get a gun.”
Gun control is our only road to freedom. Freedom from the fear of senselessly losing children. I’m so saddened. WE NEED LAWS NOW.
“How can a 20yr old with a history of mental problems have access to guns! #GunControl”
“How much more suffering & loss will it take before we better regulate the sale of arms in our country? Let @NRA know how you feel.”
“Shocked and saddened by what happened today in Connecticut. We have to stop the access to guns in our country.”
“Band-Aids-on-Band-Aids @NRA people want MORE access to guns to combat all the people w access to guns.”
“If this tragedy doesn’t change something in this country regarding guns…I just want to scream and cry. Deeply saddened. Praying.”
