Jessica Chastain Directs Fans to ‘Drag Every Single’ Congress Member Who Took NRA Money

“Its disgusting that we keep letting this happen. Shameful.”

Actress Jessica Chastain is lashing out against Congressmen and Congresswomen who took money from gun lobbyists, telling her Twitter followers to “Drag every single member that took NRA money.”

“Man with an arsenal of at least 10 guns unloaded hundreds of rounds into a crowd. Its disgusting that we keep letting this happen. Shameful,” the “Zero Dark Thirty” actress added in another tweet.

Gun rights groups overwhelmingly support GOP candidates, contributing $5.9 million into Republican campaigns in the 2016 election cycle, according to Politico, compared with $106,000 to those of Democrats. It’s also the most money gun lobbyists have given in a campaign year since at least 1990.

In Chastain’s tweet, she shared an article that tracked every member of Congress who took money from the NRA and who shared “thoughts and prayers” to Vegas victims — an empty sentiment to many who view it as feckless in the fight to prevent and significantly curtail mass shootings.

Chastain isn’t the only celebrity calling for stricter gun laws in the wake of the mass shooting in Las Vegas at the Route 91 Harvest music festival on Sunday.

Russell Simons tweeted, “I will do everything in my power to get Congress to pass comprehensive gun reform so these types of tragedies don’t happen anymore.”

Alyssa Milano angrily said on Twitter, “Sensible gun control NOW.”

Hillary Clinton tweeted, “The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots. Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get.”

“This is terrorism plain and simple. Terror bares no race, gender or religion,” tweeted Lady Gaga, adding, “Democrats & Republicans please unite now #guncontrol.”

Gigi Hadid offered, “It sickens me the ease in which a TERRORIST can be sold a GUN. Is the ease really worth all these lives?! This needs to stop.”
