Kim Kardashian, Ellen DeGeneres and many other celebrities call for stricter gun control after yesterday's events in Florida

Dozens of celebrities, from Bette Midler to Tyra Banks are saying “Enough is enough.”

OVER THE LAST few years, Kim Kardashian has been using her massive platform to bring attention to some very important issues.

From documenting the huge issue of homelessness in Los Angeles to raising awareness about the Armenian Genocide, Kim Kardashian often uses her voice in a positive way. Since the Sandy Hook mass shooting in 2012, Kim Kardashian has also been regularly tweeting and campaigning for stricter gun control laws in America.

Sadly, it was necessary once again after 17 pupils and teachers were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida after a 19-year-old former pupil entered the school and opened fire on students.

Kim, once again, called on the US government to protect future victims of mass shootings.

She also shared tweets other individuals wrote about previous mass shootings and the NRA.

Ellen DeGeneres also shared her sadness for the students and parents affected by the massacre and called for a change in laws.

Bette Midler blamed the ‘spineless cowards’ who refuse to tighten gun laws for another shooting.

She also said that an individual’s mental illness can no longer be used as an excuse, because it is not an excuse to the rest of the world.

Reese Witherspoon said ‘Enough is enough.’

As did Gabrielle Union.

And actor Rainn Wilson.

Chelsea Handler tweeted that Republicans have ‘blood on their hands’.

Tyra Banks also called for action.

Many other American celebrities including Adam Lambert, Yvette Nicole Brown, Stephen King and Alyssa Milano called for action and new legislation instead of the usual ‘thoughts and prayers’, while tweeting their condolences to the children and families affected by the shooting in South Florida.
