We have known Jimmy Kimmel as the ‘Funny Man who can make you laugh non-stop’ but can you imagine him crying literally. No? But he recently did in a show though this is not the first time. Why? What did he talk about?
Las Vegas-born comedian recently made everyone speechless during the late-night show, ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live.' Jimmy actually was referring to the recent gun shootings in Nevada, Las Vegas and became teary-eyed. Stay with Hitberry to find out more.

Many of us know Jimmy Kimmel as the comedian, executive producer and the only host of ABC’s talk show, ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ until now. But after reading this, you will know another side of him. If you have watched his show, you know how funny and hilarious he is. No one has expected him to be this emotionally vulnerable kind of person.

Jimmy Kimmel dedicated a 10-minute monologue on October 2 to the unfortunate families affected by the Nevada inhuman gun shooting in which 59 people died and more than 500 injured. The topic he mostly talked about was the long-debated ‘GUN CONTROL.'
Kimmel, in fact, raised a very relevant matter of grave importance. One of the reasons why these gun shootings are becoming frequent is because the American government has failed to address the gun laws.
The irony, unfortunately, is that the leaders in the country were well familiar with the law that allows buying a gun without requiring any background check on the buyer.
According to the reports by the ATF, out of 314 investigations involving gun shows reviewed, more than 46 percent of felons buying or selling guns were found to be engaged in illegal sales, had no background checks and straw purchases.

So, this law has indirectly allowed direct gun selling to anonymous people who can be hefty criminals or even terrorists. Jimmy again made another hilarious point but was yet a bitter truth. It goes something like this:
When someone with a beard attacks us, we tap phones, we invoke travel bans, we build walls, we take every possible precaution to make sure it never happens again. But when an American buys a gun and kills other Americans, then there's nothing we can do about that.
The whole world knows about the biases President Donald Trump has made in case of 'Muslims'. He even went as further as passing the executive order that temporarily banned people from seven Muslim-majority countries.
But he apparently forgot to include the one country that the terrorists of 9/11 attack were from. Trump must have inherited this out-of-the-world intelligence from out-of-the-world species.
Jimmy furthermore made fun of American lawmakers, especially about Republicans during the live show. He said ‘they’
should be praying for God to forgive them for letting the gun lobby run this country.
Towards the end, the show presented graphics of those Republican senators who decided to vote against the closing the gun-show loophole and next, the video of 2012 gun shooting was shown which was responsible for the death of 20 children and six other people.
The 49-year-old host has increasingly talked about political issues lately. His 10-year old’s open heart surgery this September might have ignited his newfound realization.

Kimmel had then clearly expressed his disagreement about passing a major healthcare reform package. Let's hope he keeps continuing this remarkable work.
