Celebrities call for tighter gun control after Las Vegas mass shooting

Lady GaGa

LAS ANGELES: Celebrities used social media to speak out against gun violence in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting that left at least 59 people dead at an outdoor music festival. Stars like Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande, whose Manchester, U.K., concert was the site of a deadly attack in May, called for gun control to prevent another attack.

Lady Gaga urged people to refer to the shooting as “terrorism.” She tweeted, “This is terrorism plain and simple. Terror bares no race, gender or religion. Democrats & Republicans please unite now #guncontrol.”

Grande made similar comments, labeling the shooting “terrorism” and calling for gun control. It has been more than four months since a suicide bomber killed 22 people at her May 22 concert at Manchester Arena.

Caleb Keeter, guitarist for Josh Abbott Band, was there when a gunman opened fire from the 32nd floor the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, targeting concertgoers as country music star Jason Aldean performed at the end of the three-day Route 91 Harvest Festival. Keeter said the shooting has completely changed his position on gun rights.

Other stars also added their voices to the call for tighter gun control.
