The late shows all had a somber start last night, as they hit the air for the first time since 49 people were brutally murdered at a gay bar in Orlando, Florida.

Jimmy Fallon, Conan O'Brien and Samantha Bee all opened up their shows with monologues addressing the tragedy, getting political and downright angry over the senseless violence and gun control in the United States.

Bee, host of "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee," was perhaps the most outspoken of them all, going into a seven-minute takedown of shooters, the NRA and politicians who do little to help.

"Is it okay if, instead of making jokes, I just scream for seven minutes until we go to commercial?" she said at the top of her show, before going in.

"After a massacre, the standard operating procedure is you stand on stage and deliver some well-meaning words about how we will get through this together, how love wins, how love conquers hate" she continued. "That is great, that is beautiful, but you know what? F--- it. I am too angry for that. Love does not win unless we start loving each other enough to start fixing our f---ing problems."

"I think we can all agree that if you don't have one friend to hold the phone for you, your lone wolf ass doesn't get a gun," she continued, joking about the shooter's selfies. "If someone's Tinder profile is just mirror selfies, they're definitely a murderer."

She then went in on Marco Rubio saying this was "Orlando's turn" for a shooting. "Orlando's turn?" she asked, exasperated. "Mass shootings are so normalized now that we're taking turns?"

Bee continued her monologue by going in on Florida Governor Rick Scott for simply asking people to pray.

"Are you there God, it's me Sam," she said in closing. "Please, bless the victims and their friends and families in their time of unspeakable pain. Give us the courage to say no more, and while you're at it, please send the NRA a plague of boils. Amen."

Over on Conan, he took it to a personal level, talking about his own kids while addressing the "senseless" act of violence.

"At a time when we think we've heard the worst stories about senseless violence in our country, that it couldn't possibly get worse, the news out of Orlando yesterday is still impossible to fathom," he said of the Pulse tragedy. "That so many people can lose their lives so quickly because of one person's demented rage will never make sense and God help us if it does."

"I am not a pundit, I am not an expert and I've always, always made it a policy to stick to my job, and keep my opinions to myself," he continued. "I have really tried very hard over the years not to bore you with what I think."

But, this was something he couldn't stay quiet about.

"However, I am the father of two, I like to believe I have a shred of common sense and I simply do not understand why anybody in this country is allowed to purchase and own a semi-automatic assault rifle," he went on. "These are weapons of war and they have no place in civilian life."

"I do not know the answer," he added, echoing all our thoughts. "But I wanted to take just a moment here tonight to agree with the rapidly growing sentiment in America that it's time to grow up and figure this out."

Like Conan, Fallon also talked about being a father and how the news affected him.

"I, as a new father, am thinking, 'What do I tell my kids? What do I tell them about this? What can we learn from this?'" he said. "What if my kids are gay? What do I tell them?"

"Maybe there's a lesson from all this. A lesson in tolerance," he went on. "We need to support each other's differences and worry less about our own opinions. Get back to debate and away from believing or supporting the idea that if someone doesn't live the way you want them to live, you just buy a gun and kill them. Bomb them up. That is not okay."

"We need to get back to being brave enough to accept that we have different opinions, and that's okay," he said. "Because that's what America is built on. The idea that we can stand up and speak our minds and live our lives and not be punished for that, or mocked on the internet. Or killed by someone you don't know."

"This was just one bad guy here. Forty-nine good people, and one bad guy. There will always be more good than evil," he added in closing. "So keep loving each other, keep respecting each other and keep on dancing."
