WASHINGTON - A slice of Hollywood is tweeting support for President Barack Obama's executive actions on guns.

Celebrities Julianne Moore, Kerry Washington, Amy Schumer, Janelle Monae and Elizabeth Banks went on Twitter to applaud Obama's announcement. And Obama's aides happily retweeted their expressions of support.

Schumer tweeted: "Let's go. We can #StopGunViolence.' Schumer was in the White House East Room for Obama's announcement Tuesday. She became a voice for gun control after three people were fatally shot last summer at a Louisiana screening of her blockbuster film, "Trainwreck."

Washington, star of television's "Scandal," thanked Obama for "taking these steps to make us ALL safer."

Moore thanked him for "stepping up and taking action when Congress won't."

Obama announced a series of non-legislative steps to tighten firearms sales in the U.S.
