Amy Schumer used her acceptance speech at the Glamour Woman of the Year Awards Monday night to call for gun control.

“If you’ve been convicted of domestic violence or you’re severely mentally ill, I don’t think you should be able to get a gun,” Schumer told the audience.

“It seems pretty simple, but people’s reaction is ‘She wants to take our guns’!” (RELATED: Amy Schumer Continues Anti-Gun Crusade: ‘We Need Outcry’)

Schumer has called for gun control since a gunman opened fire during a screening of her movie “Trainwreck,” killing two and leaving nine others injured.

The comedian has joined her cousin, Democratic New York Sen. Chuck Schumer and proposed legislation that focuses on background checks to prevent mass shootings. (RELATED: Amy Schumer Wants More Restrictive Gun Control Laws After ‘Trainwreck’ Shooting)
