BREAKING Canadian Jim Carrey speaks out against the Gun Lobby & gun violence in America!
He makes his point across the only way he knows how. Through humour (Canadian spelling).
The Canadian-born comedian is in character as both Charlton Heston (hence the title) and a performer named Lonesome Earl who mocks gun owners through music.
Backed by a band of impersonators (purportedly Gandhi, John Lennon and Abraham Lincoln), Lonesome Earl sings that a typical gun enthusiast makes "banditos out of molehills."
"You're a big, big man with a little, bitty gland so you need something bigger to fill your cold, dead hand," goes another line.

I can't think of a more worthless opinion.

He should've done it as Fire Marshal Bill.

I like that he's passionate about this cause to stick his neck out and rile up the freepers (like r1&3 apparently.) I had no idea he cared about anything more than being rich and getting richer. The song goes on a little too long though, as far as that. But if he really did sing it, he did a good job.

He is Canadian R6. The defunct long gun registry notwithstanding, Canada has some of the most strict gun laws in the world.

Gee, and I wonder why Canadian murder rates are so low....?

I think it's great, and funny too.

Good intentions but the song and skit are just not that funny. I watched it but didn't laugh once.

I think good for him and loved him in "I Love You, Phillip Morris."

I loved it and it was pretty ballsy considering his fan base.

good for him - no one else is taking this issue on, and it's a big problem
I didn't think I would laugh, but I laughed at the Sam Elliot bit

Wikipedia says Carrey gained US citizenship in 2004 and retained his Canandian rights for dual citizenship. He's American.

R16 he might have dual citizenship, but he is a Canadian FIRST

Backlash is starting
Laura Ingraham “Here’s a theory I have,” Ingraham continued. “I think it’s more of a deflection deal. You know, Jim Carrey’s famous for The Mask. This is kind of a mask. It’s a mask to, perhaps, direct our attention away from the cold, dead career.”
“Not only is it not funny, it’s kind of embarrassing for Jim Carrey given the fact that he has the luxury of being protected by an armed security person when he travels,” she said.
“Horton hears a career sputtering,” Ingraham concluded.
Asked by Hannity if she thought Carrey would make fun of African-Americans or Muslim Americans the way he mocked rural white gun owners, Ann Coulter responded, “no, you’re allowed to make fun of white southerners and Christians in America.” She chalked Carrey’s video up as the latest example in the “epidemic” of “wealthy people” trying to tell the rest of country not to carry and own firearms, a clear allusion to Mayor Bloomberg‘s gun control campaign. Linking Carrey’s video to Hannity’s assertion that the government is buying up a billion rounds of ammunition, Coulter claimed, “that’s the only question with gun control: should the government and rich elites like Bloomberg, Feinstein and Jim Carrey have a monopoly on force?”

In a press release Jim Carrey said, ”I find the gun problem frustrating and ‘Cold Dead Hand’ is my fun little way of expressing that frustration.”
Carrey also took to Twitter yesterday saying, ”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,”’ and much more.

Good initiative. I hope it makes the freepers self-combust.

I liked it. They got the HeeHaw vibe down pat. Gun owners ARE PUSSIES. You need a fucking sidearm to pick up your dry cleaning? A parody song makes you feel like a victim whose rights are being trampled?

It was well-intentioned, but not very funny.
It also made me feel uncomfortable for Carrey to be mocking another actor because people don't come to see his movies anymore, given Carrey's latest bomb.

On Monday evening, Greg Gutfield, co-host of Fox News Channel's The Five, called Carrey a "sad little freak" and "the most pathetic tool on the face of the earth."

Whatever -- Carrey still has balls for speaking out on an issue that bravely confronts America's (stupid) "right to bear arms." In Canada, our simply done, tighter gun control has given us less of these shootings and here, it's a privilege, not a right, to have a gun.

So name -calling is what passes for "fair and balanced "news in the USA?

Yeah, Carrey has the balls to attack a dead man.

chris matthews doesn't let the names fly?
"The Cycle" doesn't engage in name calling?
