Hollywood was quick to react to Wednesday morning’s shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, where a gunman opened fire with a rifle on a group of Republican politicians practicing for the upcoming Congressional baseball game. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was struck, along with several others.

Julianne Moore said she was “saddened by this shooting in our US Capitol,” in a tweet, but also urged Congress “to act.” She shared a tweet from The Atlantic senior editor David Frum, that called out Virginia for its lack of background checks on gun owners.

Film producer Megan Ellison called the shooting “a frightening encapsulation of the fragility or our deeply divided country.”

Alyssa Milano retweeted a tweet from Stand Up Republic co-founder Mindy Minn, who said, “An attack one American is an attack on all Americans.”
