Stars React to Colorado Shooting, Push for Gun Control Laws

by at . Comments

Amidst the sadness and shock over the fatal Aurora, Colorado shooting at a Dark Knight Rises screening early Friday morning, many celebrities have taken to Twitter to express their sympathy for the victims and their families.

Many have also used this as an opportunity to push for stricter gun laws, an area in which President Barack Obama has been considered a total failure by The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence.

Batman Mourns

Here is a sampling of star Tweets on the matter. Read through them and share your take with us now:

Cory Monteith: guns don't kill people, people do etc.. but until we can fix society somehow you probably shouldn't be able to buy AR-15's at a fishing shop ... such a senseless tragedy. when are we going to reconsider the role of guns in society? how many more times does this have to happen?

Susan Sarandon: The right to bear arms was referring to muskets. Maybe it's time to re-think our gun policy on this day of slaughter in Colorado.

Piers Morgan: Lunatics like this will always try and get guns. It should be 100,000 times harder than it is for them to do so. That's my point.

Miley Cyrus (in a retweet): Less guns = less psychopaths who can get guns = less innocent lives lost....seems pretty obvious to me.

Chris Daughtry: Stricter gun laws will not stop SICK people from getting access to guns...Laws & rules are not in the forefront of the mind of a criminal.

John Leguizamo: My heart goes 2 all the victims families in colorado. No one should have to go thru that. When r we gonna get guns removed in this country?!

Bryan Greenberg: People against gun control are you kidding me?! Don't even try to justify having a AR-15 for personal use. Not necessary!!

Josh Hopkins: Dear news media, In reporting about tragedy in Colorado please do less about 'does Batman promote violence' & more about gun control. Thanks.

Yes, but look how I have you spending your days? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You are the puppet and I hold the strings. I should be charging you for all this. How long can you stay up? All night? You will start hearing voices again. Next time your out- purchase a dictionary or steal one which ever comes more natural. Too eady? WTF?

@The Famously Clueless "I know"---I'm so glad you were big-balled enough to come out and admit the obvious truth---it's a "WE" pack of nasty, bullying trolls causing all this trouble. Thanks for finally being honest about yourself. (MAJOR SIGH) Bet you feel like 100 lbs just came off your chest. Now you breath deep....feel better?!?

@Truth: I think your Obama education is showing its "truth". Truth do me a favor and answer my question, Have you seen "Boyz n The Hood" or Menace To Society"? What do those movies glorify? Black on Black violence, correct? Now, for some real truth. Stupid, sick, deranged, angry, and desperate people kill people, not guns. Guns are tools nothing more. These tools are primarily used for protection by responsible Americans to protect themselves from these sick, stupid people. And white people are not the only ones killing people, there are just the ones the media likes to run with. Stop the race issue, come together, help and pray for those affected and my friend is the "truth".

I have to confess that I am a seriel troll bitch. But please don't judge me harshly. I just want a white man to curl himself around me and call me his chocolate mousse. I want a white man to shag me day 'n night and assure me that cocoa poon is all he desires. I apologize to Matt no matter how much he annoys me at times. I don't have a right to post the nasty, suggestive things I do about you. I just feel so jealous that I'm not that white woman you prefer in your life. Instead, I will always be that little cocoa bean that won't ever be the object of your desires. I promise to get help--stay on the meds---asap!

Funny because murder,and bomb making are illegal and banned in this country but that didn't stop him from killing people and rigging his apartment to explode,how could he just ignore the law completely......why does anyone think a ban on guns would stop anyone but a law abiding citizen.. Our laws are only as strong as the people who follow them,banning something only stops people who were not the problem in the first place..

You call others racist with the way you speak? You sound like you have way to much hate in you. Wacko's from the Obama era.
