While many across America were mourning the horrific mass shooting at a California bar Thursday, the liberal activists of Hollywood were already busy using the shooting to promote gun control.
“We live in a war zone, because Republicans do nothing about gun laws, while they see people being shot every day. They do nothing,” comedian Chelsea Handler roared.

Author Stephen King called for “gun control now.”
If you’re not a psycho, a career criminal,or a spouse abuser violating a protection order, your hunting rifle is OK.

Meanwhile, actor Josh Gad declared that America is “on a hamster wheel of insanity.”
“Another day of grief. Another day of outrage. Another day of families unnecessarily learning their loved ones are dead. But, don’t worry, I remember from all of the other times we’ve done this…’guns aren’t the problem.'”

WATCH THIS VIDEO. Republicans in power watch this and say “Oh well, your son should’ve had a gun. Sorry. Too bad.” That’s their response. I think the Republicans in power are complicit in every mass shooting that we’ve had. Maybe on THEIR deathbeds, they’ll feel some regret. And- https://t.co/iDsuSdagYd

It’s still a comment on our country the violence we’ve created with our love and celebration of gun culture…we also do not take care of our vets at all…stop trying to explain away the culture of violence that gun accessibility has created https://t.co/rajBiwk1Ly

These horrific terrifying mass shootings are male hate gone amok. Hate against women, against minorities, against community, and always and primarily, against themselves. What is making men in America so hateful? So suicidally blinded with rage and loneliness? #GunControlNow
