The famous comedic actor issued his stance on gun ownership on Saturday in a rather contentious tweet. Jim Carrey’s pro-gun control tweet lambasted the new gun owners in America. He tweeted that any American, who would purchase an assault rifle after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings, has very little in his soul or his body worth protecting.

Several American film stars have supported renewed gun control in the aftermath of bloodcurdling public massacres in the US lately such as the Colorado theatre shootings, Connecticut elementary school shootings, to name a few. The gun owners’ lobby, however, led by the National Rifle Association (NRA), have vowed to thwart any renewed gun control. The tweet of the Mr. Popper’s Penguins actor is likely to fuel their resistance to gun control.
