Celebrities Tweet About Colorado Massacre
The nation was shocked and saddened by Thursday night’s shooting in an Aurora, Colorado theater during a midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises.” Many famous names have taken to their Twitter accounts to show sympathy for the victims and their families, as well as express their feelings about gun control. Here are a few calling for more regulation:
Cory Monteith @CoryMonteith 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?
Bette Midler @BetteMidler Gun control, anyone?
Miley Cyrus @MileyCyrus: re-tweeted a message from one of her followers who wrote: Less guns = less psychopaths who can get guns = less innocent lives lost….seems pretty obvious to me
Susan Sarandon @SusanSarandon : 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 @PiersMorgan : 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. #Colorado
Not many celebs came out in favor of gun ownership, but one outspokenly right-wing country star and a former contestant on “American Idol” went against the majority….
Charlie Daniels @CharlieDaniels: Get ready for the gun control bunch to start howling. If they have their way only thugs and murderers will have guns, laws dont effect them. If you want to see government control at work look at Chicago, toughestlaws, highest murder rates.
Chris Daughtry @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
The death toll in the Colorado shooting currently stands at 12, with another 71 injured.
