I can laugh at poking fun at gun related stereotypes:
I’m not familiar with HeeHaw because I’m not 293 years old, but I think it’s pretty funny the whole gun community is up in arms over this video.
What? We can’t laugh at stereotypes now? It’s called comedy / satire, look it up.
If you ask me, the fact that someone who is still considered by many to be a famous actor / comedian decided to make fun of what he did in the video helps us more than it hurts us because it is making light of the topics at hand. I think a lot of people make the mistake of thinking anti-gun people are “stupid” (Oh? A stereotype? Imagine that.), when in fact they are often just misinformed or scared of firearms.
Understandably people aren’t going to like the Charleton Heston comments and actions (playing him) Carrey made in the video. I can’t say I enjoyed them either, but they were easy/obvious shots to put in there for shock value so I’m not surprised he took that route because that’s what guys like him do.
Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten that Jim Carrey is a huge scumbag when it comes to shitting on the 2nd Amendment. Remember his Newtown CT “assault rifles” comment? Additionally, in a recent March 24th tweet, Jim Carrey said “‘Cold Dead Hand’ is abt u heartless motherf%ckers unwilling 2 bend 4 the safety of our kids.Sorry if you’re offended by the word safety! ;^}” Yeah I don’t really get what that’s supposed to mean either, but I assume it’s to do with assault rifles again, and how they are mass-child-killing machines. We need to ban them for “safety” I’m assuming. How many kids did your AR-15’s kill yesterday?
I think the best way we can deal with losers like Jim Carrey are to be like “hahah good one *eye roll* now go away”. He can come out with a song like this every week and it won’t effect my life. It is nice we have talented musical guys on our side like FXhummel1.
Thoughts? U mad? Should guys like Jim Carrey be pressured to get rid of their armed security? Not be allowed to make money playing guys with guns in movies?
