Actress Rachel Brosnahan has expressed her grief over the July 4 mass shooting in her hometown of Highland Park, Illinois.

The “Courier” star condemned the tragedy and urged the government to do something about the rampant gun violence across the U.S. in a tweet hours after the incident.

Brosnahan said the July 4 parade was a "highlight" for many families in Highland Park.

“I grew up in Highland Park and this parade is a highlight of the year for so many families,” she wrote.

She also said she didn’t wish anyone to experience the horror the families of the victims had to bear on the day of the deadly shooting.

“I’m sick to my stomach every time news like this comes out, but I don’t wish the pit in your stomach as you call your family and friends to make sure everyone is okay on anyone. No words,” she added.

In a subsequent tweet, Brosnahan retweeted a post that read, “Take action to end gun violence,” calling on the government to take action against the recurring mass shooting incidents in the country. “Enough is enough is enough is enough is enough is enough is enough is enough is enough,” she wrote.

Aside from "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" star, several other celebrities have expressed their grief over the incident.

One of them was director and actor Ken Olin, who also grew up in Highland Park.

“My hometown. I went to this parade every year as a little boy,” he tweeted. “My heart breaks for all the children in our country who will grow up afraid of celebrating with a mass of happy people.”

In a statement following the shooting, President Joe Biden reiterated in a statement his commitment to end gun violence in the country. “Jill and I are shocked by the senseless gun violence that has yet again brought grief to an American community this Independence Day,” he wrote. “As always, we are grateful for the first responders and law enforcement on the scene. I will not give up fighting the epidemic of gun violence,” he continued.

The mass shooting left at least six people dead and several others injured.
