Hollywood Celebs Blame NRA, Republicans and Gun Rights Advocates for Shooting

Per KTLA, Thursday a student opened fire on his classmates, killing two and injuring three more, before shooting himself in the head at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita Thursday — the day of the shooter’s 16th birthday, authorities said.

Deputies found six students with gunshot wounds in the school’s quad, among them the suspected gunman, Sheriff Alex Villanueva said.The gunfire erupted at 7:38 a.m. and prompted a massive law enforcement response to the campus at 21900 Centurion Way, with some first responders being off-duty officials who had just dropped off family members for school, according to officials with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Several students were transported to local hospitals, where two of them — a 16-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy — later died, according to officials.

Many Hollywood celebrities on Twitter rushed to push for gun control, with the blame being placed on the NRA, American gun rights advocates, and Republicans.

Actress and activist Alyssa Milano tweeted:

Another day. Another school shooting.

When will we demand meaningful change? When will our voices mean more to our elected officials than their funding from the NRA?

How many children need to suffer? How many need to die?

Activist Filmmaker Michael Moore tweeted:

This week’s school shooting, 7:38am PT this morning at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, California. 6 students shot, 2 dead as of now. I have NO prayers, but MANY thoughts. We Americans are a strangely frightened people with 340 million guns in private possession. Madness!

We Americans are a violent people. Kill. Kill. Kill. Kill Indians. Lynch black people or shoot them in their homes. Invade nations. Assassinate leaders. A Senate that kills the Violence Against Women’s Act. Not one bishop in jail for allowing rape of children. The list is endless

Actress and Singer Bette Midler tweeted:

It’s not the world. It’s the USA, where people care more about guns than they do about their own children and citizens; where their own elected officials allow mass murder year after year. A selfish, incompetent, willfully ignorant nation, celebrating stupidity.That’s America.

Comedian Andy Richter tweeted:

In our 2-sided system, one side actively stands against positive change on both guns and climate change. One side doesn’t want to fix these problems, and in fact, left unchecked, would choose to make both crises worse and more deadly.

Actress Kerry Washington tweeted:

Another school shooting… Horrific. Unacceptable.

Actor Michael Ian Black tweeted:

The NRA remains a terrorist organization
