Do we all personally hv to lose someone from a gun to hv a real opinion on gun control or can we just literally start taking this SERIOUSLY.— KATY PERRY (@katyperry) July 24, 2015
Let's never become numb to this ceaseless gun violence. It cannot be our norm. Love to all in Louisiana.— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) July 24, 2015

I don't like getting political but America you really have to follow Australia's example re gun laws.— Rebel Wilson (@RebelWilson) July 24, 2015
I don't remember a mass shooting in Australia since they overhauled the gun laws. It seems like every week in America there's a shooting.— Rebel Wilson (@RebelWilson) July 24, 2015
