The country is still reeling from the Robb Elementary School shooting that claimed the lives of 19 children and 2 teachers on Tuesday (May 24) and celebrities are now speaking out about the tragedy!

Many notable celebrities such as Missy Elliot, Gabrielle Union, Quinta Brunson Chloe Bailey, and Kerry Washington have recently spoken out about the mass shooting. Some of these stars are even advocating for stricter gun laws.

Actress Gabrielle Union tweeted:

“It’s BEEN enough. We’ve been at ‘enough’ for centuries.”

Abbots Elementary star Quinta Brunson said it’s “insane that we just keep living like this. really don’t want to” and that she’s “tired of gun violence.”

Chloe Bailey asked:

“when will this end??????? when will it stop??? how do we just keep letting this happen?? 18 babies gone!”

On Tuesday (May 25) 18-year-old Salvador Ramos used an AR-15-style semi-automatic rifle and massacred 19 children and two teachers at an elementary school in Texas. Reportedly, he had legally bought two rifles just days before the tragedy. Ramos was killed on the scene by officers. According to reports, Tuesday’s shooting marks the deadliest shooting at a U.S. grade school since the 2012 attack at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

Golden State Warriors Coach Steve Kerr delivered a powerful message during his pregame interview on gun control after the Texas school shooting took place. While filled with emotion, Kerr said in part,

“I’m so tired of getting up here and offering condolences to the devastated families that are out there. I’m so tired…There’s 50 senators right now who refuse to vote on HR8, which is a background check rule that the House passed a couple years ago. It’s been sitting there for two years. There’s a reason they won’t vote on it: to hold onto power.”

Moved by his coach’s remarks, NBA star Steph Curry reposted Steve Kerr’s powerful speech and advised fans to watch it. Curry wrote,

“watch this as much as you watch the game tonight…”
