Motley Crue's Vince Neil was among many rock acts speaking out via their social networks late last week after the tragic school shooting in Connecticut, but the rocker got a little hot under the collar after a number of his followers debated his call for gun control.

His initial tweet was a simply put, "Sad day today. Prayers to all the families. Gun control!!!" While Neil definitely meant to put the focus on the tragic events of the day, there were enough of his followers that latched onto the final comment about gun control that he felt the need to respond.

In a series of tweets that followed, Neil admonished those who chose to address that part of his comment. His Tweets on the matter can be read below:


Neil knows firsthand about the loss of a child at a young age as his daughter Skylar Neil died of cancer at the age of 4 back in 1995.

The Friday elementary school shooting resulted in the loss of life of 20 young children and six staff members, as well as the shooter's mother at a nearby home. The 20-year-old shooter killed himself at the school.
