After the Las Vegas tragic shooting, more and more celebrities are taking to social media in support of stricter gun control rules in the US. Reality TV star Kim Kardashian became the latest celebrity to talk in support of gun laws.
On Wednesday, Kim shared an image on Twitter to talk about the 21st-century gun laws in the country.

"When the founding Fathers wrote the 2nd amendment, guns fired one round per minute. Today's rifles have a cyclic rate of 600+. Maybe it's time we stopped using 18th-century law as to regulate 21st-century weapons," the message on the image read.
This is not the first time Kim spoke about supporting gun control laws. In June, to mark the National Gun Violence Awareness Day, she made an appeal to protect children.
"I'm not against guns and I'm not against people owning guns. After what happened to me in Paris, I know how important it is to be safe and to have armed security. All of my security team is armed, but they also support stricter gun control laws and believe that we should restrict access to firearms for people with mental illness, anyone previously convicted of a misdemeanour, those who have been subject to a temporary restraining order and those at a higher risk of committing gun violence," she wrote on her official website.
Not only Kim, but several other celebrities took to social media to talk about the need for stricter gun laws in the country. Here are the celebs tweets that talked about #guncontrol in the US.
