The debate on gun control exploded on Twitter fallowing the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Connecticut where reportedly 27 people were killed (18 of them children).
Even though White House spokesman Jay Carney was quick to announce that today was not a day to discuss policy on the matter of gun control, the masses, celebrities included, decided to voice their opinion on the subject on Twitter.
Here's what some of them had to say,
