Some of Hollywood’s most politically active and vocal figures reacted to the mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, on Saturday by blaming Republicans and President Donald Trump and calling on Congress to pass more laws restricting the Second Amendment right of law-abiding gun owners.

“I’m sick of: ‘my thoughts and prayers’ they do nothing to stop the slaughter of innocent Americans at work and play. We need to have gun control now!! Not one more life should be lost to senseless preventable gun shootings!” actor John Leguizamo said.

“I blame trump! His hate speech is triggering all this violence against Latinx in America! Shameful and horrorful!” the John Wick actor later added.

“Another mass shooting. Another White Nationalist. There are not “fine people on both sides”. The President of the United States bears responsibility.” director Rob Reiner said.

“This is a public health crisis. Hold your lawmakers responsible,” actress Julianne Moore said.

NBC reports that at least 19 people have been killed and another 40 have been injured.

Breitbart News reports:

Medical officials in El Paso report 13 adults and two children who arrived at the University Medical Center and 11 adults at Del Sol Medical Center. KTSM reported.

UMC officials report one of their 13 patients died and one was released. The others remain in critical condition. Four people were immediately taken into surgery.

The two children, ages two and nine, were transported to El Paso Children’s Hospital, officials stated. Their condition has not been released.

Nevertheless, left-wing Hollywood stars took a horrific and deadly massacre and made it about politics. Below is the latest Hollywood hate.
