In the wake of the Las Vegas terrorist act, the gun control debate is back on the frontlines.

Celebrities have become active and are actively pleading with Congress, trying to get their respective representatives to act on gun control.

WATCH: Jimmy Kimmel Breaks Down in Tears Talking About Gun Control
