Los Angeles: Comedian Amy Schumer has responded to an open letter requesting her to speak about gun violence in the wake of a shooting incident that took place during the screening of her film "Trainwreck" in Louisiana.

The 34-year-old stand-up comedian indicated that she might address gun violence in her future work.

The letter, a plea for Schumer to become vocal about anti-gun violence, was posted to Medium.Com by Sarah Clements, whose mother survived the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, reported Variety.

"As a woman, a daughter and sister, a national figure, and a role model, you have a real stake in gun violence happening all around you," the essay read.

"Her name was Mayci, not Marci, and I think about her and Jillian everyday. Don't worry I'm on it. You'll see," Schumer tweeted in the response.
