It’s already clear that Jim Carrey has lost all credibility with his views on gun control or guns in general. Why we would even listen to a guy who has made a fortune using guns in senseless violence in his movies while criticizing people who use guns to protect themselves is beyond me.
In the last few months Carrey has revealed just how ignorant he is of guns and gun owners. In February he tweeted,
Not only did he reveal that he had no idea what an “assault rifle” is, but he also didn’t understand that hundreds of thousands of Americans own what he CALLS assault rifles (which are really just semi-automatic rifles) to protect their families and properties, including this 15-year-old.
Then Carrey released a video that not only made fun of gun owners but it exposed how classless and irrelevant the actor has become.
But now it seems that Mr. Carrey is wanting to make up with gun owners. Here is the apology he recently tweeted:
About 50 minutes later he tweeted again to make his apology even more “sincere”. He tweeted…
“Btw I don’t need a crisis mgr, just a conscience. Calling ppl names is inappropriate but my position on assault weapons hasn’t changed. ;^}”
Apparently calling people names is wrong, but it’s perfectly fine to show kids how to use guns violently to take innocent lives. But then again, Carrey did recently say he couldn’t support the level of violence in his own movie. Even though he knew exactly what was in the screenplay 18 months before the movie was ever released. So can we really take him seriously?
So why the apology now? Why even bother apologizing when he made it very clear what he thinks of gun owners? Jim Carrey forgot that there are over 80 million gun owners in this country, and many of them have already boycotted his movies after his last rant on gun owners when he mocked the deceased actor Charlton Heston.
Perhaps his Canadian roots failed to remind him that American gun owners have very good memories and don’t like their rights to be messed with.
