    I think there is just a hint of overreaction here, if this video was on "In Living Color" or "SNL", we'd all smile at the jab and wait for the next skit.....

    Jim Carey on guns: "These horrific events are also an invitation for us to become more civilized and to deal with our addiction and entitlement to violence."

    Jim Carey then gets paid to be Colonel Stars and Stripes, in Kick Ass 2, who uses guns and an attack dog to hurt people.

    This silly dick holster calls everyone that exercises the 2nd amend a mfer and then says whys is everybody mad? Goodnight, then states exercising the 2nd Amend is solely for making up for penis length when virtually everyone in his profession entered it for some sense of inadequacy or another and mocks Hesten (btw dead) for not having a hit contemporary movie when his fame came from two or three kid movies in the 80's. Someone give this putz a hug.

    I have a huge issue with Jim Carrey talking about guns being responsible for unnecessay deaths. While I too beleive that it is fine to re-examine limits on guns (we have been doing it since the ink on the constitiution has dried). I don't think he should be listened too seriously and I don't want him on my side. I wonder which is responsible for more suffering, guns or the anti-vaxx campaign?

    And in other news, Charlton Heston's rerun of "10 commandments" had more views in one showing this Easter, than did Jim Carrey's new movie total after three weeks in the theaters.
    The 1956 rerun had 5.9 million viewers when aired by ABC on Saturday. The "Incredible Burt Wonderstone" has had roughly 2.5 million viewers, at $21 million grossed divided by $8.00 per ticket.
    The 34% of the country that own a gun (roughly 100 million people) now have a vested interest NOT to see his film.
    Jim Carrey: That accounts payable phone call you got in Charlton Heston's "Cold Dead" middle finger pointing right back at you.

    Good on him, someone has to stand up and try and stop these idiots from creating another Wild West state. Why is it that the USA, with all its Land of Opportunity and freedom crap, are the only ones advocating the potential killing of innocent civilians by letting ANYONE own a gun? Surely not the smartest move in the world, but hey thats what the rest of the world expects.

    Excuse me? What dope have you been smoking? First, off the only ones advocating gun control seem to be the ones doing these mass killings. Klebold (Columbine) was very active with his mother in the MMM. Loughner (Tucson) was a totalitarian. (I have not found one that did not disarm their subjects) James Holmes (Aurora) was a big time Obama Supporter, a member of OWS, and a straight up "Progressive". It seems like the ones in favor of gun control are the ones committing the massacres. Come to think of it Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Lenin, and Pol Pot were also fans of gun control too. How many millions of innocent people did they forcibly disarm and slaughter? Funny thing also was that EVERY mass shooting save one was committed in areas known as "Gun Free Zones". (Tucson, and that should count after all the negative press that open carriers got from carrying guns to an Obama Speech there. "OH MY GOD! YOU CARRIED A GUN AROUND THE PRESIDENT! WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?" So that should count as a "Gun Free Zone" too after the fits that people like Matthews had over that. ) It means that you can not carry a gun no matter if you have a permit to carry or not. BTW, how on earth does it make sense to you that any 2nd AoA advocate would support these massacres given the fact that every time one does happen the Gun Control Lobby now being lead by the Dictator in Chief B. Hussein come out to attack law abiding Americans who had nothing to do with the rampage even before the smoke clears? You know who does get media favor when things like this happen though? The Gun Control Lobby. In fact listening to B. Hussein talk, it seemed to me that he was trying to use Newtown as a vehicle for his agenda.

    Creating another wild west state? Uh this countries founding principles was built on the rise up of a militia against it's oppressors and have not let their guard down yet. The Wild West was a period of lawlessness and it was in fact a gun "The Peacemaker" that won the West and brought martial law. You need to learn up on your history before you lampoon the 2'nd amendment.

    As for the potential killing of innocent civilians guess what? Thats an uncountable variable despite firearms. Take away a madmans guns and hes will resort to Molotov cocktails, arson, and explosives to kill hundreds.

    As for Anyone own a gun you may need to once again check your facts. Background checks for all FFl transfers and in store purchases of long rifles and pistols are requirements by all States. Conditions negating you from owning guns are felonies, drug convictions, military discharges, and mental health history.

    Just because you don't want a firearm doesn't mean you get to stomp on the constitutional rite of someone else whom did nothing wrong. Imagine being told you can't drive because someone else committed vehicular manslaughter which is much more prevalent than any gun crime.

    You sound far too ignorant to even understand the merit of my explanation so oh well, wasted effort. As for Jim Carey parodying something then that's fine, but expect some blow back when that person not only happens to be dead, but also the beloved leader of a lobbyist group.

    Whatever the context it would be the same grounds as parodying Martin Luther Kings Speech or Patrick Henry's give me liberty or give me death.
