“Family Guy”, Seth MacFarlane tweeted, “These shootings are a regular occurrence. You don’t get to be “shocked” anymore unless you can take action to stop them. Ban automatic weapons.”
Cher tweeted on point and stated “If nothing else, automatic assault rifles & those that can be made in 2 assault weapons.”
Monday evening, talk show host, Conan O’Brien addressed the tragedy in his show monologue and stated “I simply do not understand why anybody in this country is allowed to purchase and own a semi-automatic assault rifle. It makes no sense to me. These are weapons of war and they have no place in civilian life. . .. Nobody I know or have ever met in my entire life should have access to a weapon that can kill so many people so quickly”
