Celebrities Rush to Politicize Conn. School Shooting

Celebrities Rush to Politicize Conn. School Shooting

We still don’t know many details surrounding this morning’s shooting rampage which left at least 26 people dead including 18 children.

The fog of breaking news isn’t stopping celebrities from using the tragedy to promote their gun control views.

Mia Farrow’s Twitter feed exploded today minutes after the shooting.

I don’t want to hear one idiotic word out of the NRA 

Comedian Patton Oswalt continued on a similar theme, that of liberals who refuse to let healthy, informed debate get in the way of their beliefs.

Yeah, I’ll wade right the fuck into this: MORE gun control, MORE mental health services. It’s no longer a debate. Never was.

“Saturday Night Live” alum Rachel Dratch dropped the comedy and hit her CAP LOCK button in her response.

Our weekly mass shootings aren’t happening in other countries. And this time, children? WHEN WILL OUR “LEADERS” PUT AN END TO THIS INSANITY?

Ethan Suplee of “My Name is Earl” fame sent out an interesting equivalence argument through his social media feed.

The rights of those who own and use guns within legal parameters are not worth the lives wasted by those who do not.

Rashida Jones of “I Love You, Man” fame demanded instant action. 

Gun control is our only road to freedom. Freedom from the fear of senselessly losing children. I’m so saddened. WE NEED LAWS NOW.

Perez Hilton says he really wants to be a kinder gossip maven but events keep getting in the way.

I’m trying to be more positive these days but people who say “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people” – those people are fucking morons!

Michael Moore weighed in almost immediately with a series of Tweets, including this highly politicized gem:

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.

Perhaps the most incoherent Tweet came from actor Dax Shepard of “Parenthood” fame. 

I love guns. I have several, but I would gladly get rid of them if it would help prevent anything like this from happening again
