Mia Farrow - Mia Farrow Demands Action On Gun Control Legislation After Another Shooting
Actress and human rights activist Mia Farrow has called on U.S. lawmakers to tighten gun control legislation following yet another school shooting on Tuesday (22Jan13).
Three people were injured in a shooting at a library on campus at the Lone Star College in north Harris County, Texas on Tuesday afternoon. One suspect was taken into custody, while a second suspected shooter was arraigned hours later following an extensive search by FBI agents.
The latest gun-related incident has prompted Farrow to demand politicians move forward with U.S. President Barack Obama's proposals to impose stricter rules on weapons sales and ownership.
In a series of Twitter.com posts, Farrow writes, "Omg (oh my god) Lone Star Campus shooting... Second Amendment (right to bear arms) must be adjusted!!
"That gun-shooting is 'fun' doesn't cut it anymore. And delusional paranoia is not a justifiable reason to keep weapons. Ban semi-auto guns."
Meanwhile, actresses Eliza Dushku and Holly Robinson Peete have expressed their shock at the news, and Chad Lowe tweets: "Another day another school shooting. Pray for the strength & courage to end gun violence & the will to care for our mentally ill."
The current gun control debate was amped up last month (Dec12) when 20 children were killed during a massacre at Connecticut's Sandy Hook Elementary School.
