Anti-Gun Celebrities Rush to Politicize Concert Massacre

While many have shared prayers, support for victims and first responders, some individuals could not help push liberal views

Only hours after a tragic concert shooting in Las Vegas, some celebrities were already rushing to push their politics on social media.

It’s disheartening, especially considering the number of celebrities and artists who are expressing sorrow and offering prayers to victims who attended the country music festival on the Vegas strip, as well as first responders still dealing with the aftermath of what is now the worst mass shooting in American history.

Although the notion that new gun laws would equal less violence has been disproven time and time again, anti-gun celebrities still take advantage of tragedy — and turn it into a platform to beg for laws that will make little to no difference (but will maybe help them sleep better at night because they’d feel they made a difference).

Regardless, there is a time for these conversations — and the time is not mere hours after a tragedy like this occurs.

Unfortunately, these celebrities simply could not help themselves.
