You may have heard that Amy’s new movie ‘Trainwreck’ was marred by the tragic shooting during a July 23rd shooting where 2 women died, 9 others injured by a psycho gnu man who then killed himself. (Coward). She said she had something in mind regarding to gun control.. and she wasn’t lying.

On Monday, Schumer announced that she’s joining New York Senator (and her cousin) Chuck Schumer in a call to action for tighter gun laws.

Sen. Schumer is announcing a new three-pronged plan and public push to crack down on mass shootings and gun violence. That includes introducing new legislation that creates monetary rewards for states that submit all necessary records into the system for background checks and creates penalties for states that don’t; urging the Department of Justice to write a comprehensive report comparing states’ standards for involuntary mental health commitment and give recommendations on best practices; and calling on Congress to preserve funding for mental health and substance abuse programs.

This is fantastic and the definition of actually DOING something instead of just being sad about something on Twitter. Brava, Amy.
