Jim Carrey: I Never Wanted to Take Your Guns Away
Celebrity Newsie ^ | 04/03/2013 | Jim Carrey Op-Ed

Posted on 04/03/2013 7:13:05 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

I disagree wholeheartedly with individuals who say that there are just too many guns available in the market to regulate and that extra gun laws is not going to make a difference. trade must begin someplace. i am beautiful certain that no worthwhile undertaking has ever been finished and not using a starting and lowering gun violence in the united states is a worthwhile pastime.

These mass shootings and day by day body counts to your native information are bad tragedies. The utter devastation that must be persisted by means of the victims’ families is unfathomable. These horrific occasions are additionally an invite for us to develop into extra civilized and to take care of our dependancy and entitlement to violence. to not shut our eyes and ears and scream at those with a unique opinion than ours to “fuck off and return to Canada.” i will gladly go back and seek advice from Canada as i’ve many friends and loved ones there. i’m so happy with that u . s . and the whole thing it can be given to me, but i’m also a naturalized American citizen and i have been bringing as so much pleasure as i can to individuals on this u . s . for 30 years. I care deeply about our future and i feel it’s my responsibility as a citizen to do the whole thing in my energy to make this a better position.

for individuals who say i am a hypocrite as a result of i’ve an armed bodyguard, lets make one factor clear: nobody in my rent is allowed to carry a large magazine and no person IS ASKING any person to give up THEIR proper TO undergo hands, although it is in the vested pursuits of folks that revenue with the aid of gun sales to make it appear so. it’s just the kind of palms, the easy get admission to and the way with which to result in large devastation to just right and innocent folks that i’m hoping we will restrict. it can be the standard of mercy, the tiniest spark of empathy that i know lives in every person of us that I are looking to ignite in you.

And to the bullies who will try to marginalize and discredit me through pronouncing, “Shut up, you might be just an actor,” while they brag about what a really perfect president the ACTOR Ronald Reagan used to be, who threaten me with the loss of life of my performing occupation and much worse, I say SO BE IT! How shallow do they suspect i’m? i might trade my money, my fame, my popularity and legacy if there have been the slightest likelihood of preventing the agony of some other Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora, or Sandy Hook fundamental school. I ask you, really, what method of human being would not?

i have been aghast at the degree of hatred heaped upon me, my household and the folks I work with over a mere distinction of opinion on this problem. most likely my phrases were slightly harsh on the onset, but calling somebody a “Motherfucker” is some distance completely different than wishing them to die. it is shocking to look this concerted effort to brutally intimidate anyone who speaks of a compassionate compromise.

These thugs, though menacing, are a minority however they are going to have their manner if just right individuals don’t step ahead now and make a difference. each American has the right to speak their thoughts. each American has the appropriate to bear hands. however it’s up to each American to draw the road in terms of the type of weapons which are considered a cheap way of self-protection.

no person is allowed to personal a bazooka. In a movie theater an assault rifle with a a hundred-round drum journal can result in simply as so much injury.

So do not just take a seat there and do nothing. Contact your representatives and let them be aware of that their jobs depend upon change. It is not going to all the time be any person else’s kids within the line of fireside.

The time is now. LET YOUR coronary heart BE HEARD.

Jim Carrey talking out of his a$$ again.

If he don't like the constitutionally protected rights here, he can scoot his rump back to CANADA.

Carrey says he is 100% behind us all hiring our own private body-guards, even the poorest mom with 3 kids working while going to night school.
He says if she hires that gaurd 100K per year he is fine with that.

Did Jim Carey actually write this garbage? Is the man an illiterate or is this a stab at satire on someone’s part. If Carey actually wrote this then he must have been high on something, or the man proves that you don’t need to be literate to be an actor.

Guess it’s a good thing Carrey is an entertainer.
He certainly isn’t educated for much else.

He should have had his bodyguard write this for him. Maybe then it would make sense.

Reagan was elected head of the Screen Actor's Guild. He was elected Governor. He was twice elected president.

He spoke out against Socialized Medicine and even today people on the Left ridicule his assertions.

Carrey apparently is illiterate. Terrible writing, poor word choice and grammatically incoherent.

He didn’t help his douche bag self with this rant.

curious missives many o@ us have gotten @rom our new Nigerian
@riends who have several million dollars that belong to us but who need all our vital in@ormation and several thousand dollars so that they can release it to us. It cannot be something Jim Carrey wrote unless he’s trying to do a parody.
It is very curious.
