50 people were left dead after Omar Mateen opened fire at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando…and Kim Kardashian is absolutely sick over it. The reality star took to Twitter to send love to the victims, but she also went on a rant begging Congress to enforce stricter gun control laws. See her tweets here.
Kim Kardashian, 35, just cannot believe the awful tragedy that happened in Orlando, Florida on June 12. After the attack, which left 50 dead and 53 more brutally injured, the 35-year-old sounded off on Twitter about the United States’ gun control laws — check out her messages here.
“I’m truly at a loss for words,” she wrote. “To everyone in Orlando affected by this massacre, my thoughts, love & prayers are with you.” She accompanied the message with different colored heart emojis, showing her support for the LGBT community since the venue that terrorist Omar Mateen opened fire on was a gay nightclub.
“Under current federal law people on terror watch lists can legally buy guns — this is called the Terror Gap,” she explained to her followers. “We have repeatedly called on Congress to close this loophole that makes it easy for dangerous people to get guns & kill. Nothing has changed!!!! People continue to senselessly die. When will these gun laws be changed!??!?!!??!?!?”
Omar has actually been on the when he made “inflammatory comments to coworkers.” The comments were not specified, but they were alarming enough for him to be suspected of terrorism. However, the investigation was closed since he could not be tied to any specific terrorist threats.
ISIS has claimed responsibility for the brutal attack in Orlando. See the horrifying video from the scene of the massacre here, and check out which other celebs, like Kim, have mourned the loss of the innocent victims.
