The devastating mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, on Wednesday, hit Candace Cameron Bure especially hard.
The 39-year-old Full House
star couldn't hold back the tears on The View
on Thursday, when the panel discussed the shooting that killed 14 people at the Inland Regional Center. Bure, who is a California native and a well-known Republican
, also gave her thoughts on gun control.
"I'm a mom who misses her kids on the other coast," View co-host Bure said. "I'm from California and just close to the situation, but here's where I stand. I'm a conservative person -- I believe in our Second Amendment rights, but there has to be something that is sensible between both parties, that people who are allowed to get guns should have training and shouldn't be on lists."
"They need to come to a common ground and have some sensible gun laws, while protecting our Second Amendment rights," she added.
Bure discussed the difficulty she experienced when talking about the deadly shooting with one of her sons. Bure has three children -- 17-year-old Natasha, 15-year-old Lev, and 13-year-old Maksim -- with her husband, NHL hockey player Valeri Bure.
"I called my son this morning, and I said, 'Do you feel safe today?'" she shared. "I wanted to open the door to hear how he was emotionally feeling, and then I thought, maybe it wasn't the right way to question him because maybe I'm invoking fear into him and maybe he wasn't thinking about it, and so I don't know how to ask as a parent."
"My heart hurts. Praying for families in San Bernardino," she also tweeted on Thursday.
Bure isn't the only celebrity speaking out about the San Bernardino shooting. Amy Schumer, an outspoken gun control advocate, tweeted her strong thoughts
"This is absolutely heartbreaking -- all my love to everyone in San Bernardino especially the first responders," Schumer tweeted. "These shootings must stop."
"It doesn't have to be this way," she continued, while linking to Everytown
, a website devoted to curbing gun violence through legislation. "Join the movement and help us #endgunviolence."
"I'm not sure why this man chose my movie to end those two lives and injure nine others, but it was very personal for me," Schumer said. "We always find out how the shooter got their gun and it's always something that never should have happened in the first place."
