Jim Carrey: The lives of assault rifle owners aren’t really ‘worth protecting’

"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. ;^\"

Hey, gun owners: There’s “very little” about your life and even your very soul “worth protecting” if you bought an assault rifle after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, according to funnyman Jim Carrey. Because, you know, he values life and stuff. The emoticon at the end of his tweet just shows how much he cares.

“Dumb and Dumber” doesn’t begin to cover this one. And Much like Musket Morgan, we’re guessing Carrey couldn’t define “assault rifle” if he tried.

So he’s basically saying that we’re on our own and will have to protect ourselves? (Which is actually pretty factual)

Anyone who buys a ticket to any Hollywood movie needs their head examined.

These people are enemies of freedom, and enemies of America.

I wonder if the Funny Man includes the State and Federal government in his absurd comments as well. I doubt that because hypocrisy is in the nature of all authoritarians.

An erstwhile ‘funny’ guy whose zaniness reminded people of that other frigging flakeball, Robin Williams....it turns out that zaniness was just masking sheer idiocy and warped minds of both of them. Their notariety attained, their creepiness outed.

The most recent creepiness for Carrey was his awards show endless monologue about how hot “Emma Stone” is .... what a fagged out creepy, now-old, man. I haven’t watched his movies in years, nor William’s precisely because their depth is non-existent.

Actor and comedian, Jim Carrey, drives a silver Mercedes SL 63 AMG. Performance: Engine : V8 Horsepower: 525 bhp (386 kW) 0-60: 4.6s Top speed: 155 mph (250 km/h)

Hey Jim, I don’t know if its true that you own an “Assault Car” but nobody NEEDS a car with that much power that can go that fast. Anybody WANTING such a dangerous and evil machine has no soul.

How does that work for you?

Hey Jim Carrey, the people of Newton just voted to have armed guards at their school, RIGHT AFTER THEIR OWN MASSACRE. Apparently, you’re ignorant.

I've always preferred Jeff Daniels anyway. He's a liberal but fairly rational since he grew up and lives in Michigan gun country. Plus he's an actual actor who doesn't have to force himself to take a patriotic role.

Member of the greedy 1%, Jim Carrey, lives in the L.A. home pictured above...

I wonder if he has any firearms in his house....naaaaah. He probably protects his house with a pea shooter and a barking doberman.

This is an interesting question when it comes to "bodyguards". These people the travel around the country with the Rich and Famous must have to get permits for every jurisdiction they visit, right? WRONG!

Fact is, according to local laws, most of the time a privately hired, aremed, security detail accompanies someone to Los Angeles, DC, Chicago, NYC, Etc. they are breaking the law. Problem for most of them is, the local police will not provide security for these idiots when they request it.

While shooting a movie is different because they have to get permits, etc. and there are special "responsibilities" the city issueing the permit takes on. But to be on Oprah or David Letterman? If they have armed body guards they are likely (not always) committing a felony.

You think any of them care (or even realize it)?

Carrey creeped me out as soon as he arrived on the scene in Hollyweird. He even made Robin Williams seem quasi normal by comparison, so you know the creep-o-meter had pegged out somewhere in the stratosphere.

Carrey had this peculiar, sociopathic con-artist vibe from the get-go, as if a pathological sleezeball was attempting to hide behind a wall of schizoid “humor”. Of course that was/is just my impression.

I got a similar impression of Williams, but Williams appeared to be more of a smug, elitist punk than anything else.

I remember when comedians got laughs because they were genuinely funny but not full of themselves. These two seemed more interested in controlling their audiences through creepy skills.

For anyone who bought an AR-15 dreaming of imitating the attack, he’s right. For anyone who bought an AR-15 dreaming of stopping the next attack, he’s dead wrong. My educated opinion, having met several recent purchasers of ARs, is that well over 99.9% of those who bought an AR after the attack are on our side. I just wish the extremists on the left would allow good people to defend our children (subject to approval by the local government or school principal) instead of creating gun free zones where predators know they will not be opposed.

The lives of idiot Holly wood actors and such are really not worth protecting OR supporting.

The idiot Left has noticed more than the assault rifle sales. Go to any store selling ammo and look at what is left on the shelf. Try to purchase brass for reloading. The panic has been going on since the November election, but picked up after the CT shooting.

We the People are angry with our “leaders”. /sarcasm

Even a fool can figure this out. Of course it is not portrayed that way by the MSM idiots.

Mr. Carrey, you just lost 50% of your possible audience, and probably more. And a good part of the other 50% wouldn't go to your flicks anyway.

Just another Ogressive proving his mental acuity.

I've got no use for him. I was planning on ordering some of his stuff on Netflix. Now, instead -- while I will still be able to watch his dreck -- I will make sure it is a non-revenue-generating method. :)

Hey Jim, the owners of those “assault” weapons feel the same about you and yours. They aren’t likely to waste much ammo if you ever find yourself in trouble and unarmed. Oh wait...most of them have a much stronger set of morals and respect for the lives of innocents; they might just save your sorry ass after all.

http://www.handgunlaw.us/

Check it out. There is NO reciprocity in IL, NY or CA.

That said, a bodyguard with a CA permit, is not recognized in IL or NY and is not recognized much of anywhere else. NY doesn't recognize CA. Neither will honor out-of-state or non-resident issued permits.

For example, I live in IN. I can get a FL & TX permit by mail with some classes, fingerprints, etc. But MI will only recognize my IN permit because they will not recognize non-resident issued permit.

I own and carry concealed and I sometimes travel across state lines. It's good to keep current on the laws.

It isn’t me I’m worried about Jim Carrey. It’s my family. Little old ladies, babies, grandsons.

What do you have against protecting the helpless Jim? I’ll never watch another one of his stupid movies again.
