He even describes the incident as "terrible, inexplicable, shocking and painful tragedy" that is too much to handle. "All these devastated families who now have to live with this pain forever because one person with a violent and insane voice in his head managed to stockpile a collection of high-powered rifles and use them to shoot people," he said.

According to a CNN report, authorities identified Stephen Craig Paddock as the suspect for the mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival.The 64-year-old retired accountant reportedly shot from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino before he shot himself in his hotel room.

ABC further confirmed that authorities have discovered 42 guns in the suspect's hotel room and Nevada house. Hence, the "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" host called out the government and the National Rifle Association (NRA) to impose stricter gun control laws to stop these senseless killings from happening again in the future.

He even accused the government of coming up with all the possible precaution when foreign perpetrators attack the United States but not when a white suspect is responsible for this kind of incident. The TV personality even referred to Donald Trump's travel ban that disallows people from certain Muslim-dominated countries from entering the U.S.

Jimmy Kimmel later apologized to his viewers for using the late-night program to respond to the deadly attack in his hometown.

"I just want to laugh at things every night, but it seems to be becoming increasingly difficult lately," he added.

Aside from the TV host, several other personalities called for tougher gun laws after the Las Vegas shooting. Ariana Grande took to Twitter to express her grief on the incident. It is worth noting that an act of terrorism also took place at the singer's "Dangerous Woman" concert in Manchester back in May.

The incident took the innocent lives of 23 people and had left 250 others injured. Ariana Grande, with the help of her co-singers, even held a benefit concert for the people of Manchester following the deadly attack.
