Alyssa Milano, Kim Kardashian demand gun control after Vegas massacre

Alyssa Milano, an actress who often weighs in on political topics and campaigned heavily for Georgia Congressional aspirant Jon Ossoff, is using her busy Twitter feed to call for gun control following Sunday night's mass shooting in Las Vegas.

"Doesn't our children's safety mean more than your right to own weapons that can kill on a mass scale? (Bleep) you, NRA," she wrote.

Kim Kardashian is also among the celebrities pushing for gun control.

Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel became emotional when discussing the massacre.

"Here we are again in the aftermath of another terrible, inexplicable, shocking and painful tragedy, this time in Las Vegas, which happens to be my hometown," he said. "We pray for the victims and their family and friends and we wonder why, even there's probably no way to ever know why a human being would do something like this to other human beings."

He also blasted lawmakers who he says have allowed the NRA to "run the country."
