All the Celebs Who Call for Gun Control After the Deadly Florida School Shooting

By  | 

Today, the world is in mourning. Yesterday at about 2:30 p.m., Nikolas Cruz allegedly opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, killing at least 17 innocent people and injuring many more. The 19-year-old suspect was expelled from the school the year prior and was known for collecting guns, including semi-automatic rifles. Nikolas allegedly tried to blend in with evacuating students, but authorities were able to identify and put him under arrest for 17 counts of premeditated murder.

Detectives eventually learned that the suspect’s social media pages were filled with “very disturbing” images and text, according to CNN, and the FBI was even alerted of him in September 2017 after he left a comment on YouTube that read, “I’m going to be a professional school shooter.”

So the question remains, as it has with the numerous other mass shootings that have happened in the United States in a short period of time — when will enough be enough? When will legislators finally step in and do something to prevent so many people from senselessly getting killed? Celebrities such as Lucy Hale, Kim Kardashian and Kevin McHale are all asking these very questions and calling for gun control immediately.
