"My wife threw me a birthday party on the Borderline this year, but the only reason we live is that the shooter chose another night," the father of two tweeted. "My heart goes out to the victims, I say it again … Gun Reform Now! Politicians have to stop behind the dollar and protect the people!"
In a second tweet, Kutcher explained that he grew up to be a hunter & # 39; and worked on a collection box from a cannon club that grew up & # 39 ;.
"[Nobody] take your weapons! "he wrote." Weapon reform !!!!! Let it be a test. Your voters do not want to die when they go to church or to a concert or a bar! "
The farm actor pointed out in a third tweet that "armed people" were shot in the Borderline Bar.
"The BS rhetoric surrounding the arming of more people to protect others is exactly that, BS! Armed people were killed last night! Gun Reform now !!!", he tweeted.
Kutcher also called Ivanka Trump in a subsequent post, adding that her brother-in-law Joshua Kushner was on his birthday. He begged her to speak with her father, President Donald Trump.

". @Ivanka Trump your brother-in-law was at that birthday party. He could just as easily have been a victim, "wrote Kutcher." You go to the synagogues, you could be a victim! Talk to your father! Pray with your father! Let this be your inheritance! Gun Reform now! "
The White House did not respond immediately to PEOPLE's request for comment.

The actor also called for mental health initiatives and revealed that a friend had given him a gun as a gift outside the Borderline Bar.
"This is neither / nor is it a both! Support mental health initiatives and support Gun Reform Now !!", he tweeted. "My friend gave me a gun as a gift at the Borderline parking lot on my birthday, I never made it, I do not think I'll ever do that. [Heart emoji] to the families of the lost. Change is coming. "
Kutcher wrote in October 2017 an opinion piece on his website in which he called for revolution in the gun after the mass shooting in Las Vegas.
The actor wrote that he grew up handling weapons from a young age, taking a hunter's course at age 12 and working on a gun range at 13.

"Every mental health professional will tell you that it's important to keep weapons out of the hands of people who want to harm themselves or others," he wrote.
He continued: "So let's make laws that stop people who have a higher chance of hurting themselves or others from getting a gun."
Kutcher added that he believed it was "far too easy to get a gun" and called for "stringent regulations" such as safety courses and training.
"The extreme sides of this argument are not and will not be feasible, we can not continue to do anything and we can not ban all weapons, so let's have the dialogue and the negotiations, and let's find the middle," he wrote. "It can hurt a bit for both parties to sacrifice a bit of their agenda, but at the end of the day we can even see some progress."
About a dozen others were injured in the attack, within the Borderline Bar and Grill at Thousand Oaks during the weekly "College Country Night". According to the police, the shots were reported for the first time at about 11:20. The shooter was later found dead in the bar of an apparent suicide.
