Transcript for Kimmel calls out Congress over gun control
And that's something Jimmy Kimmel brought up last night. He is a Las Vegas native and he made an emotional plea in the wake of that deadly shooting. Here's a look. Here we are again in the aftermath of another terrible, inexplicable, shocking and painful tragedy. This time in Las Vegas which happens to be my hometown. Of course, we pray for the victims and for their families and friends and we wonder why even though there's probably no way to ever know why a human being would do something like this to other human beings who were at a concert having fun and listening to music. Echoing the sentiments of so many and took a big stand on gun control calling out lawmakers who every time this happens and people say, well, it's not the right time to talk about it, don't make it political and saying, gosh, I mean after Newtown, after Orlando, after what happened in Las Vegas, when is the right time to discuss it? He brought that up. When you see the arsenal he had, the kind of weapons, how they were used, tuzze just unbelievable. Amassing that kind of arsenal. All right.
