Reality TV star takes to Twitter to demand action
Kim Kardashian took to Twitter following tragic Florida shooting at Stoneman High School which left 17 people dead, to demand that government take action to introduce Gun laws.

'We owe it to our children and our teachers to keep them safe while at school,' she tweeted. 'Prayers won't do this: action will. Congress, please do your job and protect Americans from senseless gun violence.'
She also Tweeted a number of stats that 'continuously' show up in the wake of shooting tragedies, such as how many were carried out AR-15 assault rifle; or how every air passenger must take off their shoes because of one shoe-bombing attempt, yet after 1606 mass shootings the laws remain the same.
Kardashian also retweeted a screenshot of an NRA tweet encouraging people to buy guns for their loved one on valentines day, it was immediately deleted following the murder spree.
The daily mail reports: Mark Ruffalo agreed: 'Prayers without accordant action are silent lies told to oneself, heard by no God, amounting to nothing. The action is the language of truth, the prayers of the Saints.'
Chelsea Handler called on Americans to elect candidates who are not funded by the NRA in the November elections.
'We have an opportunity to elect candidates who won’t allow kids to go to school and get shot. It is disgusting how many times this has happened and Republicans do nothing,' she tweeted. 'You all have blood on your hands.'
