Any1 who would run out to buy an assault rifle after the Newtown massacre has very little left in their body or soul worth protecting. ;^— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) February 2, 2013
In a responsive short post titled, "Jim Carrey's Nasty Gun Dig," Fox news said, ‘Funnyman Jim Carrey joins a long list of celebrity liberals who think the lives of those who share a different philosophy than theirs may not be worth all that much."
Red Alert Politics writer Erin Brown said about Carry’s tweet: "careless remark ... rooted in the shallow, parroted talking points so commonly espoused by liberal elites." She further added: "Sadly, his divisive comment has received more than 3,400 retweets and more than 1,600 'favorites' as of this printing, proving once again that the power wielded by Hollywood celebrities carries a very real influence."
Carrey later tweetedto clarify his original comment:
Yes, i agree with the ppl who argue that cars can be as deadly as guns but a car is a lot harder to get through the door of a classroom. ;^]— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) February 5, 2013
There has been serious discussionabout gun control in the US since these incidents. President Barack Obama and VP Joe Bidenare working on passing a new gun control legislation that would constrict and restrict gun laws.

@jimcarrey but it is pretty easy to get it into any other overcrowded place like carnival for example. Jim, be realistic!— ?? ?????? (@Sledcom_Russia) February 5, 2013
@jimcarrey so you're saying thousands of people want to commit murder if only they had a gun? Or is it own a gun makes you want to murder?— Casey Kidd (@caseykidd47) February 5, 2013
