Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Amer­i­can stand-up co­me­dian and ac­tor Amy Schumer (right) says she wants to pro­mote the cause of gun con­trol laws in the United States. The 34-year-old called for stricter gun con­trol laws af­ter the re­cent theater shoot­ing dur­ing a screen­ing of her latest movie, Train­wreck, in which two women died and nine oth­ers were in­jured. “Pre­vent­ing dan­ger­ous peo­ple from get­ting guns is very pos­si­ble... These are my first public com­ments on the is­sue of gun vi­o­lence, but I prom­ise they won’t be my last,” she said. On be­ing asked if she an­tic­i­pated a back­lash for be­com­ing an ad­vo­cate for gun con­trol, Amy said, “Yeah, I am ex­pect­ing back­lash... But I would deal with it the same way I dealt with a lot of hate online for the last 10 years... I want to be proud of how I’m liv­ing.”
