Twenty-nine innocent Americans lost their lives in two separate mass shootings over the weekend, and the actors from “Sons of Anarchy” are among those outraged.
The first shooting happened Saturday morning at a shopping complex in El Paso, Texas. A white supremacist opened fire and killed 20 people. Authorities later learned his motivation was to kill immigrants and Hispanics.
The second shooting happened about 14 hours later when a gunman killed nine people in the entertainment district in Dayton, Ohio.
Theo Rossi was quick to voice his thoughts on Sunday morning. “No more thoughts, no more prayers,” the actor tweeted.
NO more thoughts
NO more prayers
NO more waiting

Ron Perlman went on a three-tweet rant about the ideology that has created these types of mass killings.
An ideology killed those people in El Paso. And Ohio. And at the Garlic Festival. And the Synagogues, Churches and Mosques. It is the ideology of donnie. And mitch. And lynsie, and they wear it on their lapels like some Americans wear flagpins.

Kim Coates simply posted a link to an L.A. Times editorial about what we can do about this crisis.

Tommy Flanagan retweeted a tweet that plainly shows the huge discrepancy between the amount of mass shootings in other developed countries vs. the U.S.
There have been 249 mass shootings in America in the last eight months. It’s a staggering number that we must do something about.
