Jim Carrey Apologized for Calling AR-15 owners Names

Screen Shot 2013-07-07 at 10.24.56 PMI have to give Mr. Carey kudos for apologizing to those of us who own and love AR-15s, AK-47s, AR-10s, etc. Well, he apologized to “Assault Rifle” fans. I do not think anyone here is actually a fan of the term assault rifle, but I think he meant those of us mentioned in my first sentence. He does not believe that one needs a modern rifle, and because those are his beliefs, we made a parody video called “Cold Dead Hands” and then refused to promote his new film due to the violent nature of the movie. He also tweeted and made his opinion about those of us who own a modern rifle, although for some reason he keeps calling it an assault rifle.

This is my main problem with the people who argue for more gun control, they get really really mean and nasty instead of discussing the facts and educating themselves so they could listen to our side and then propose their ideas, but in ways that might actually stop the Sandy Hook shooter or the Theater shooter. Trust me, I do not want those men who caused so much devastation to get a gun, car, fertilizer, pressure cooker, gasoline, or anything else they might use to commit mass murder. Mr. Carrey and I are actually on the same side – be both want the violence to end. We simply disagree on the best way to stop it. I will never be ok with removing my right to have equal (or as equal as possible) firepower to that a criminal could get their hands on.

Thank you Mr. Carrey – I accept your apology. Now, how about a day at the range. I’d love to have a real, face to face, discussion of the facts. I am sure you come from a far different perspective than I do and If we were to remove emotion and talk, maybe we would find we have more in common than you believe.

Here is the actual “Tweet” from Mr. Carrey:

  1. Would love to discuss exactly why he thinks an AR-15 is an assault rifle. Of course if he took one look at mine he’d probably wet himself and run.
