Jim Carrey 'Assault Rifle' Tweet Angers Right

Jim Carrey is taking a seat alongside Bob Costas, Stephen King and others who have lately invited the wrath of the gun lobby.

The comedic actor tweeted on Saturday:

'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'

This, of course, did not go over well with those who fear Obama himself will at any minute walk through their front door and take away their guns (except the ones they use for skeet shooting).

Fox Nation referred to the comment as "nasty", while conservative blog WND noted, "'Dumb and Dumber' doesn't begin to cover this one."

Red Alert Politics writer Erin Brown wrote about it at length, decrying the tweet as a "careless remark ... rooted in the shallow, parroted talking points so commonly espoused by liberal elites." She went on to lament the popularity of Carrey's statement: "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."

Meh, he is entitled to his opinion.

I tend to agree with him, but I'm not that harsh in my thoughts.

Of course people are going to disagree and when they use the lame comebacks and such, they put themselves on the same page they wish to distance themselves from.

Pretty entertaining, at best.

I am still trying to figure out how the right is freaking out.   No comparison to idiots like Alec Baldwin threatening to leave the country if Bush got re-elected.   Many are still waiting for him to keep his word but not holding their breath.

Personally I think he's an idiot but he's entitled to his idiot opinion. He's made his money on being a complete dumbass I don't really care what he has to say.
