Actors Tracy Morgan, Kate Walsh and Tim Daly weighed in on guns in Washington over the weekend, suggesting more gun control will not take away anyone's constitutional rights.

"I mean, if we could get guns under control, if we could get rid of them, I'm with all of that," Mr. Morgan said at a Creative Coalition event launching the White House Correspondents' Dinner. "I've had a lot of friends that have died violently from guns."

"Of course I want to get rid of guns, he continued. "My father fought in the Vietnam War and he forbid us to have guns when he came home when we were little, so yes."

Ms. Walsh said she was satisfied with President Obama, but not so much with Congress.

"I'd like to see some gun control regulations," the actress said, later adding that she is in full support of the Second Amendment.

"I'd like Congress to be a little more cooperative and be more representative of the people," she said.

Mr. Daly said he was disappointed that gun control was blocked by the Senate, but agrees he is not in support of taking away anyone's constitutional rights.

"I'm hopeful that some kind of common sense can prevail," he said. "The First Amendment allows us freedom of speech. We can't yell fire in a theater. We can't defame people. All of these things, they're not an open book. There's modifications to all our constitutional rights and the Second Amendment should be no different."
