Amy Schumer continued to advocate for stricter gun laws after a man opened fire and killed two people during a July screening of her movie “Trainwreck.”
Schumer and her cousin Sen. Chuck Schumer addressed New York’s City Hall on Sunday during a “crusade on guns.”
“On Thursday, July 23rd, a man sat down for my movie, ‘Trainwreck,'” the comedian said.
“I don’t know why he picked my movie. It is something I live with every day.” (RELATED: Amy Schumer Calls For Gun Control)
Along with proposing legislation that focuses on background checks to prevent mass shootings, Schumer started the online campaign “AimingForChange” because she said the country “needs a public outcry.”
She urged people to write their congressman and said “there have been 100 shootings since Lafayette.”
