Rob Lowe, Lin-Manuel Miranda and More Lament Thousand Oaks Shooting: ‘We Are on a Hamster Wheel of InsanityHollywood stars including Rob Lowe, Josh Gad and Lin-Manuel Miranda reacted Thursday morning to the deadly shooting in Thousand Oaks, California near Los Angeles that killed 12 people at the Borderline Bar & Grill.

The suspect, who also died, has been named as 28-year-old former Marine Ian David Long, Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said in a news conference early Thursday morning.

Thousand Oaks is located 40 miles northwest of Los Angeles in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains close to Malibu, where many members of the entertainment industry live. It is a quiet, residential community where violent crime is rare, according to CNN.

“We are on a hamster wheel of insanity. Another day of grief. Another day of outrage,” Gad said in a tweet. “Another day of families unnecessarily learning their loved ones are dead. But, don’t worry, I remember from all of the other times we’ve done this… ‘guns aren’t the problem.'”

Several of the celebrities are calling for greater gun control and using the hashtag #GunControlNow in addition to Thursday’s trending topics “Thousand Oaks,” #BorderlineShooting and #MassShooting.

Jared Goff, quarterback for the Los Angeles Rams, whose training facility is located in Thousand Oaks, also tweeted his condolences to the victims.

“Heartbroken for the community. Thinking about everyone involved as well as friends and family of the victims,” Goff said in a tweet. “Keep them in your thoughts and prayers.”

The team also released a statement offering their sympathy for the victims.

“The Los Angeles Rams organization is heartbroken by the horrific shooting that took place last night in our community of Thousand Oaks. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families and our entire community,” it said.

This is what a hero looks like. My respect, gratitude and deep condolences to the family of Sgt. Ron Helus of the Ventura sheriffs dept. He was killed charging into a blaze of gunfire to save many young lives. He was set to retire in a few months after 29 years of service. May God bless him.

#GunControlNow will not happen until Democrats control both the House AND the Senate.

You may say I'm a pessimist. I think I'm a realist.

We're not safe anywhere!

My heart aches to learn about the horrific shooting in Thousand Oaks on college night. Praying for the injured and the families of those killed who, like so many others, have lost their loved ones to gun violence. Leaders in Congress must act — not some day, but now.

This man’s struggle with his guilt about surviving the shooting in #ThousandOaks hurts to see. Most of the victims were so young, their whole lives ahead of them. My heart goes out to all their families, as well as the family and friends of the officer killed in the line of duty. https://t.co/13aYYYK3q6
