The 35-year-old reality star posted several tweets about gun control Tuesday morning. (RELATED: Kim Kardashian: ‘Gun Laws HAVE To Change’)

“So sad!” Kardashian tweeted. “The senate voted against background checks being needed to buy guns. So terrorists on fbi’s wanted lists can legally still buy guns.”

“Oh & mentally ill people can buy guns without a background check too.”

“The fact that anyone can so easily access guns is so scary & after all of the devastating loss the Senate should have not failed us!!!” she added. (RELATED: Kim Kardashian Calls For Stricter Gun Laws After Orlando Terrorist Attack, Gets Shut Down)

This week, senators voted 53-47 on a proposal that would reauthorize funding for the National Criminal Instant Background Check System and 44-56 on a vote that would require a background check for most sales or transfers of guns. Both needed 60 votes to move forward.
