    Rebel Wilson Speaks Out On Gun Control In America

    "You really have to follow Australia's example re gun laws."

    Following the shooting at a Trainwreck screening in Louisiana on Thursday, Australian actress Rebel Wilson took to Twitter to urge America to follow in Australia's footsteps regarding gun control.

    I don't like getting political but America you really have to follow Australia's example re gun laws.

    I don't remember a mass shooting in Australia since they overhauled the gun laws. It seems like every week in America there's a shooting.

    I just want people to be safe, especially people that are doing one of my favorite things in the WORLD - going out to the movies 2 have fun.

    And while some people praised her...

    @RebelWilson As a gun salesman's daughter, I couldn't agree more. I hate guns.

    @RebelWilson amen to that! A lot of people could learn a thing or two from you guys down under!

    ...others were angered by her comments.

    @RebelWilson If u dont respect our Bill of Rights, stay the hell out of America bc u clearly don't understand our cultural distrust of govt

    @RebelWilson ok keep your laws we don't need em in America. Understand what it is suppose to originally stand for then speak again.

    @RebelWilson Stick to comedy. It's funny for you to be stupid in movies not politics.

    Australia has not had a mass shooting since 1996. Find out more about Australia's gun control here.
