In what has become a recurring and somber talking point on late night television, comedians Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers and James Corden all addressed this weekend’s church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, that killed 26, about half of whom were children.

The hosts all took different approaches, with Colbert encouraging people to vote for politicians who support gun control, while Meyers directly slammed people saying this was only a “mental health issue.” Corden offered his condolences with prayers that leadership in the U.S. will “do something about it.” Take a look at some of the clips above and below.
