The Connecticut school shooting that left 27 people dead including as many as 20 children has prompted Hollywood celebrities to demand stricter gun control because they believe it will prevent similar tragedies from occurring in the future.
Too soon to speak out about a gun-crazy nation? No, too late, far-left filmmaker Michael Moore tweeted. At least THIRTY-ONE school shootings since Columbine.
The way to honor these dead children is to demand strict gun control, free mental health care, and an end to violence as public policy, he added.
Screenwriter Kevin Williamson agreed. We need gun control. Stop defending your right to bear arms. Youre stupid, he tweeted.
Pop singer Michelle Branch tweeted: Gun control people!!! My heart is breaking. As a parent this is my worst nightmare.
Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones said that gun control is our only road to freedom via her official Twitter account.
Freedom from the fear of senselessly losing children. Im so saddened. WE NEED LAWS NOW, she added.
CNN host Piers Morgan wondered aloud on Twitter whether President Barack Obama would have the courage to stand up to the American gun lobby. He also tweeted the hashtag #guncontrol.

Oh yeah, one of the most popular shows on TV today features a group of people, including a young boy, that use some powerful firearms to protect them from zombies in a apocalyptic landscape.
“There is a common denominator in all these mass shootings, both school and non-school shootings. That is they are ALL GUN FREE ZONES! I propose that we refer to gun free zones as free fire zones.”
Not only that, but there was once a time that people that were mentally ill could be separated from society. Committed. It’s extremely difficult, if not impossible, to do that any longer. Families with mentally ill relatives have no recourse, try as they might, and they have no choice except to just wait until their mentally ill relative goes ballistic and does something that destroys lives. They know, and want to do something, but current laws completely cut them off from helping their loved ones and the innocent lives that are at stake.
“Its so funny seeing these leftist Hollywood parasites going on and on about gun control, then they make movie after movie after movie with non stop gun violence that they make money off of..then they preach to US about gun control..unbelievable”
I sooo agree with you.
And YOU are UGLY! (Not an especially effective retort to a Hollywood type, unfortunately...However if a Congresscritter tweets that, it becomes a different story;)
May these unrepentant 2nd Amendment celebrity traitors, as well as the leftstream media anti-gun advocates and political leaders who took away the right of school administrators and teachers to defend themselves and their students, burn twice as long in hell as the piece of excrement that committed these murders.
The incredible tragedy of the CT mass murder is that nobody was armed and able to stop it!
The first, knee-jerk reaction of these a$$hats is to disarm the potential victims, and make sure that nobody is allowed to defend themselves.
I was at my local movie theater today checking out The Hobbit..every single movie trailer had people being shot..every single one of them..yet these Hollywood filth preach to us about how we need to get rid of guns..or how about the rappers who glorify gun violence..or the media kissing the ass of Chris Brown, a domestic abuser, how many Grammy Awards did he get..so Hollywood has no problem glorifying and condoning violence as long as they are making money off of it
>>Try that argument with any committed progressivist/Marxist. Just say, So you would prefer that the only people with firearms should be the jack-booted oppressors of the working class? Enjoy watching their heads spin;)
William Burroughs said the same thing “Do you think I would trust only the police and military with guns?”
F*** the anti-gun idiots. They only want tyranny.
For a second there, I thought this was the same Kevin Williamson whose entire career has consisted of blood-splattered, soul-sucking teen slasher movies. I thought that, but then I realized that it would be insane for such a man to even show his face on a day like today, let alone lecture the world on the root cause of senseless violence. Hence, it must be an entirely different screenwriter named Kevin Williamson.
Actually we need more guns, not fewer - I wonder how many more of these incidents we’d have if it were known across the country that every school had a gun available on site, safely stored but ready for immediate access, and at least three staff members trained to use it if needed - at least I have a hunch staff and parents would have a greater feeling of safety, even though in spite of themselves at times.....
There was recently an episode of Law and Order Special Victims unit where a man who had lost his job went on a shooting rampage, killing everything in sight, in multiple locations. I wonder if this crazy schmuck got the inspiration to do what he did from that episode
It was just posted again a few minutes ago, for about the 50th time, the children were not killed, none of them.
These idiot celebs fear freedom. They are pathetic...most own guns or have armed guards. Hypocritical idiots.
Can’t make myself disagree with that statement.
