Amy Schumer Emotionally Responds to ‘Trainwreck’ Shooting [Video]

Amy Schumer is in favor of gun control.

A few weeks ago, two women were killed at a shooting at a theater showing “Trainwreck.” Since the shooting, Amy Schumer, the movie’s writer and star, has been nothing but supportive toward the shooting victims.

Earlier this week, Schumer called a press conference with cousin Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-New York) to discuss the shooting, and to talk about an important topic: gun control. Watch the emotional video below (and thanks to Attn: for the tip).
