Jim Carrey is sort of sorry to Second Amendment lovers around the country.

In March, the actor came under major fire from conservatives for starring in a Funny or Die video that made fun of gun-toting "motherf%ckers."

He then penned an Op-Ed for The Huffington Post in which he explained his stance in more detail and told critics to calm down.

Jim Carrey is speaking out about his upcoming film Kick-Ass 2, and not in a good way.

Rather, the star is condemning it for its use of what he feels is excessive violence following the tragic events in Sandy Hook, Connecticut, last year.

“I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence,” the 51-year-old actor tweeted.

“I meant to say my apologies to others involve[d] with the film. I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart.”

Comic book author Mark Millar, who also executive produced Kick-Ass 2, wrote a blog post following the tweets to express his opinion on the matter:

Jim Carrey is trying to use humor to make a serious point.

The actor stars in a new Funny or Die video titled "Cold Dead Hand" in which he pulls double duty as the late Charlton Heston on the set of Hee-Haw and the lead singer for Lonesome Early and the Clutterbusters, a country group that mocks gun enthusiasts.

What kind of message is Carrey sending?

"I find the gun problem frustrating and ‘Cold Dead Hand’ is my fun little way of expressing that frustration," he said in a statement, adding in a far more pointed Tweet:

”Gun folks are afraid that control won’t stop with large magazines. Their nervousness is far less important than the safety of our children... 'Cold Dead Hand’ is abt u heartless motherf%ckers unwilling 2 bend 4 the safety of our kids.'"

Last week, Yoko Ono also got involved in the gun debate, using an image of John Lennon's bloody glasses to make her plea for gun control.
