Between reflection, sadness and outrage: the american stars are campaigning against the killings of mass. The shooting in El Paso, Texas, and the next day, in Dayton, Ohio, have pushed the celebrities to show their opposition to Donald Trump and to its policy regarding the regulation of firearms.
The actress Julianne Moore, desperate but determined, commented on Twitter, using the hashtag to be very popular this weekend #EndGunViolence: “When I went to bed last night, hundreds of people walked to Washington after the horrific shootings in El Paso. When I woke up, there had been another tragic shooting in Dayton. My outrage is exhausted, replaced by the determination to put an end to the violence by firearms.”

Donald Trump “inspired by the killers” according to John Legend
This is not the only one to express his anger and sadness, and some did not hesitate to inveigh directly to the chairman. The singer and songwriter John Legend recalls as well in a tweet scathing that there is “no question of condemning the venomous racist out of the mouth of the president” by “political game but an issue of life and death”. He even goes so far as to accuse Donald Trump of”inspire regularly the killers” and thus be “part of the problem”.
When we condemn the racist venom coming from the President’s mouth and point out the bigotry of his policies, it’s not an academic question, it’s not a political game, it’s about life and death. The President regularly inspires killers. He is a part of the problem

Um… Donald, you spelt “terrorism” wrong! Your country had 2 terrorist attacks back to back, hours apart, leaving almost 30 innocent people dead. This, just days after yet another terrorist attack in California, where a terrorist was able to LEGALLY purchase year assault rifle (AK-47) in Vegas, then drive hours to a food festival in Cali leaving 6 more people dead, including a young infant baby boy! Imagine a world where it’s easier to get year AK-47 than a VISA! Imagine a world where they build a wall to keep terrorists IN AMERICA!!! My prayers and deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of all the victims and the communities affected and traumatized, from Texas, California, and Ohio! I’m so sorry for your loss! Nobody deserves to die like this! NOBODY!

Single Neil deGrasse Tyson an american scientist popular has reacted against the current by putting in parallel the number of deaths by firearm and the number of deaths for other causes.

On average, over a period of 48 hours, we lose also…. 500 medical errors, 300 for flu, 250 by suicide, and 200 in car accidents, 40 homicides by handgun. Often, our emotions react more to the show than to the figures.”

On average, across any 48hrs, we also lose…
500 to Medical errors
300 to the Flu
250 to Suicide
200 to Car Accidents
40 to Homicide via Handgun
Often our emotions respond more to a show than to data.
