James Corden Condemns Politicians For Doing Nothing About Gun Violence

"The Late Late Show" host called out lawmakers following Thursday's shooting at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, California.

James Corden on Thursday once again dedicated a portion of his usually upbeat late night talk show to call out politicians’ inaction on gun control following another deadly mass shooting.

“The Late Late Show” host said “we were so saddened” to hear of the shooting at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, California, in which two students were killed and several injured.

“We’re horrified that another place of innocence, learning and education has become instead a site of violence and trauma,” said Corden. “Our hearts break for the families, they really do.”

Corden then bashed politicians for failing to tackle gun violence.

“Whilst we continue to elect politicians without the moral courage to address gun laws, these tragedies are destined to keep repeating themselves,” he said. “Tonight, we grieve for the families of the victims and the community that’s been shattered. Tonight, we send our love to Santa Clarita.”
