On Sunday, the U.S. suffered another devastating act of gun violence. A shooter, unofficially named as Devin Kelley, is said to have killed at least 26 people, including children, while they attended a service at the Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

The small community is incredibly shaken from the deadly and unfathomable event. And its impact is being felt far and wide, given that just over a month ago, 58 people were killed and more than 500 injured by gunman Stephen Paddock at a concert in Las Vegas in the deadliest mass shooting in US modern history.

An outpouring of grief, shock and love has come from many celebrities and politicians on social media, including Donald Trump and Justin Trudeau.

Some public figures also used their message to implore government officials to take this opportunity to look at gun control laws.
