Because Jim Carrey is apparently still relevant:
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. ;^\

I’ll admit I liked Ace Ventura, and The Mask back in the day. I can’t wrap my head around how he figures it’s incomprehensible someone would by an “assault rifle” for protection or even for recreation. Last time I checked, there are millions of AR-15s out there that haven’t been used to kill innocent children. You really need to keep an eye on those things though… they could sneak away and do bad things when you’re not looking.
I doubt Jim Carrey is famous enough to have armed security anymore, but you never know. Granted they likely wouldn’t have “assault rifles” but I’m sure they would carry assault handguns with assault clips.
