Another mass shooting has left 26 dead in a Texas church, with victims ranging in age from 17 months to 77 years. Donald Trump has said the attack "isn't a guns situation" but instead "a mental health problem at the highest level." Celebrities have cried out in response to the President's dismissal of the need for immediate and extreme gun reform.
Chvrches singer Lauren Mayberry, a Scotland native, recounted a mass shooting that happened in her home country in 1996, and the gun reform that immediately followed, saying:
"I was just a kid when the attack in Dunblane happened. I didn't go to the primary school where it occurred, but I remember it, and I remember what happened afterwards: Britain changed their gun control laws." She proceeds to address Trump and Pence's sick dismissal of gun reform and their continued close relationship with taking money from the NRA, before concluding: "Prayers are not what stopped moral atrocities like Dunblane from happening in the United Kingdom. Gun control did."
