Kim Kardashian on Monday took to Twitter to call for an end to gun violence following the tragic massacre in Las Vegas that left more than 59 people dead and hundreds more injured. The 36-year-old reality star encouraged her followers to “join the movement” and called news of the shooting “devastating.”

“Woke up to the most devastating news about Las Vegas,” Kardashian tweeted Monday. “I’m praying for everyone in Las Vegas!”

After retweeting several others speaking out about the need for gun reform — including Billy Eichner, former Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, Igor Volsky and John Legend — Kardashian then shared an image from Everytown for Gun Safety, an American nonprofit advocating for gun safety legislation and education. She captioned the image: “Join the movement to end gun violence.”

Kardashian became an outspoken critic of gun violence after being robbed at gunpoint in her Paris apartment in October of last year. The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star wrote a personal essay for National Gun Violence Awareness Day in June that pleaded for stricter gun control in the U.S. In her essay, she slammed President Donald Trump’s repeal of an Obama-era rule that blocked gun sales to certain mentally ill individuals.

“It’s been 18 years since Columbine, 10 years since Virginia Tech, four years since Newtown and we’re coming up on the one-year anniversary of the Orlando nightclub shooting,” she wrote on her website. “In almost 20 years, our country has made very little progress in enacting laws that would help protect innocent Americans from people who should not have access to firearms. Right now, there are more guns owned by civilians in this country than in any other country in the world.

“In February of this year, President Trump actually signed a bill revoking a regulation recommended by President Obama that would have added 75,000 names of people with registered mental illnesses to a national background check database. This is crazy!”
