Funnyman Jim Carrey’s pro-gun control tweet has enraged the anti-gun control lobby in the US.The comedic actor started the controversy over the weekend, when he tweeted:

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:

Numerous Hollywood celebs have supported renewed gun control in the aftermath of deathly public massacres in the US lately such as the Colorado theatre shooting and Sandy Hook shooting.

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.
