Eva Longoria was all smiles on her way into the Times Square studios on Monday morning in New York City, but during her interview she addressed the tragic shooting that took place in her hometown of El Paso.

The 44-year-old actress was joined by her co-star Isabela Moner as they stopped by "Strahan & Sara" to promote their new film, "Dora and the Lost City of Gold."

After speaking about the film the pair also discussed the tragic shootings in their home states of Ohio and Texas.

"It’s heartbreaking and horrifying every time. I just ask that people don’t get numb to it,” Eva told host Strahan, who also hails from Texas.

“We can’t stay numb, we have to have action. It’s definitely a mental health problem, but we need some gun reform,” she added.

Twenty people were killed and dozens more were injured at an El Paso, Texas Walmart Saturday morning in one of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history.

18-year-old Isabella Moner stars with Longoria in "Dora," and asked for people to "text their senators" to ask for more background checks during firearm purchases.

"That's the least we deserve," she said.

Moner and Longoria's new film premieres this week.

Longoria has been active on social media against the cries for gun control, re-tweeting post like the one from Shannon Watts, the founder of gun control lobbyists, @MomsDemand.

"Hundreds of @MomsDemand and #StudentsDemandAction volunteers outside the White House right now demanding a Senate vote on background checks in honor of El Paso and all gun violence victims," Watts wrote.
