While Lady Gaga sent prayers to the state, she also wrote that she’ll be praying for gun control. Meanwhile, Josh Groban urged for action.

“If you respond to these attacks with prayers but no action, you are protecting the next murderer,” he wrote.

The church massacre comes a month after another gunman open fired in Las Vegas at Route 91 Harvest Festival killing nearly 60 country fans in attendance at the concert.
