Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande urged US leaders to act to tighten gun laws following the carnage in Las Vegas.

As artists voiced shock at the deadliest shooting in modern US history, reported AFP.

While most artists left their comments to general messages of sympathy after the assault on a country music festival, Gaga and Grande used their social media power to press the politicians.

''This is terrorism plain and simple. Terror bares [sic] no race, gender or religion, Democrats and Republicans please unite,'' the pop star wrote to more 71 million followers on Twitter, where her account is the seventh most popular.

She took to task the call for prayers by House Speaker Paul Ryan, who like President Donald Trump and most other Republican leaders is a stauch opponent of  regulations on guns.

"Prayers are important but @SpeakerRyan @realDonaldTrump blood is on the hands of those who have power to legislate. GunControl act quickly," she wrote.

Gaga also invited fans to join her in a live-streamed 20 minutes of silent meditation or prayer'' to connect us all through inner peace.''

Grande -whose concert in Manchester was attacked in May, killing 22 people -indicated that she saw little distinction with the assault in Las Vegas, where the gunman's motivation were not immediately clear.

''My heart is breaking for the Las Vegas. We need love, unity, peace gun control & for people to look at this & call this is what it is = terrorism.'' Grande tweeted
