Kutcher expressed support last year for reforming the nation’s gun laws after the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history left 59 people dead and and more than 520 injured in Las Vegas.

“I've had a gun since I was 12 yrs old but enough is enough. I'm a hunter and a sportsman but No body needs these weapons,” Kutcher wrote on Twitter at the time.

“Let's pray,” Kutcher wrote, “Then let's change the law.”
