Jimmy Kimmel Gets Emotional Talking About Hometown Las Vegas Shooting - Watch Now

Jimmy Kimmel is paying tribute to his hometown after the tragic shooting in Las Vegas this weekend.

In his monologue, the late night talk show host got emotional while discussing the horrific events and why things like this continue to happen.

“Here we are again in the aftermath of another terrible, inexplicable, shocking and painful tragedy. This time in Las Vegas, which happens to be my home town. Of course, we pray for the victims – and for their families and friends and we wonder why, even though there’s probably no way to ever know why a human being would do something like this to other human beings who were at a concert having fun, listening to music,” Jimmy said.

He later added, “I’ve been reading comments from people who say this is terrible but there’s nothing we can do about it and I disagree with that. Of course there is something we can do about it. I don’t know why do our so-called leaders continue to allow this to happen? Or maybe a better question – why do we continue to let them allow it to happen?”

Jimmy also called out government officials for not cracking down on gun control laws and urged viewers to make a difference by making sure that their voices are heard.

“It feels like someone has opened a window into hell. What I’m talking about tonight isn’t about gun control; it’s about common sense. Common sense says no good will ever come from allowing a person to have weapons that can take down 527 Americans at a concert. Common sense says you don’t let those who suffer from mental illness buy guns,” Jimmy said.

See all that Jimmy had to say in the video below…

    Kimmy Jimmel is always emotional. Think he has been neutered.

    youre a slob. i bet the only way you’d care is if it happened right in front of you. then you’d likely urinate on yourself and realize the foolish and selfish nature of your thinking. but then it wont matter, because there’ll be 10 more pricks like you who will laugh about it and turn away.

    Excellent speech. Emotional and realistic. Let’s get the politicians to get their balls out of the NRA’s money clip and make us safe from crazy people who are allowed to buy massive quantities of guns — guns that are not necessary for self-defense. Let’s be true to the 2nd Amendment.
