Lefty celebrities have been all too excited to weigh in on this morning’s deadly school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, but Leonard Nimoy took it to another level, reducing the tragedy to a “Star Trek” line.

@therealnimoy Asking how much more of this has to happen before we get some sensible action?. LLAP

A bit of sensible action on his own part would be required.

Twitterers were rightfully appalled:
