Comic Jim Carrey takes to the august pixels of the Sideboob Gazette to hit back, again, at those of us who don’t care much for people who make their livings pretending to be other people lecturing us about reality.

For those who say I’m a hypocrite because I have an armed bodyguard, lets make one thing clear: No one in my employ is allowed to carry a large magazine and NO ONE IS ASKING ANYONE TO GIVE UP THEIR RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS, though it is in the vested interests of those who profit by gun sales to make it seem so.

Alrighty then. So if you happen to get into a shootout with Jim Carrey’s bodyguards, you can just wait them out.

Next up, Carrey compares himself to Ronaldus Magnus.

And to the bullies who will try to marginalize and discredit me by saying, “Shut up, you’re just an actor,” while they brag about what a great president the ACTOR Ronald Reagan was, who threaten me with the demise of my acting career and much worse, I say SO BE IT!

Reagan was also a union leader and successful governor who spent decades formulating ideas and plans to dismantle the Soviet Union. Carrey has spent decades turning his face into rubber.

Don’t read these two lines and then call Jim Carrey a hypocrite, though.

These horrific events are also an invitation for us to become more civilized and to deal with our addiction and entitlement to violence.

Later in the same piece…

These thugs, though menacing, are a minority but they will have their way if good people don’t step forward now and make a difference.

It’s as if Carrey knows words, and knows how to put them together into a sentence, but does not know what the words actually mean.

"For those who say I’m a hypocrite because I have an armed bodyguard, lets make one thing clear: No one in my employ is allowed to carry a large magazine and NO ONE IS ASKING ANYONE TO GIVE UP THEIR RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS"...

...except in New York, California, Connecticut, Colorado, and the list goes on...

He seems to think that it's okay for his bodyguard to carry a gun, as long as it has low-capacity magazines. That's like saying his SUV isn't really bad for the environment, because he only puts in one gallon of gas at a time.

I hope, for Mr. Carrey's sake, that his bodyguards never NEED more rounds than he permits them to carry. (And it suddenly occurs to me -- what kind of idiocy is it to hire someone to protect you, and then deliberately limit their ability to do so on ideological grounds? "Yes, you must protect my life -- but I forbid you to use anything other than slingshots.")

Mr. Carrey's speech is protected by the First Amendment. If he wants to alienate half his potential audience, and hasten his slide into irrelevancy, he is free and welcome to do so.

He says no one is trying to take away our RKBA. If so, then why is it that I cannot get a permit to carry like his bodyguard has?

Ask him how large exactly his bodyguard's magazines are? Maybe not 30-round, but over ten? And how many of them do they carry?

just stop going to his movies, end of story.

Don't show up for any of his events. Marginalize him, and make him irrelevant.

Why are we listening to anything this ass-clown says? He is a self-styled buffoon for whome no one should give a second thought. Mr. Carrey, your body guards don't need to carry a single round for my benefit. I give you no more creedance than a cat yowling in the alley. No more coverage of Carrey please!

The real question is "Why do we bother to listen to Mr. Carrey and give his opinion any special credence?" The man is an actor who has little training or experience in other areas. He certainly shows himself to be a limited thinker by his ignorant rants. People need to wake up and realize that movie stars do not hold special knowledge that no one else possesses. AS Marcus Aurelius said in in his book Meditations (paraphrased) "The opinions of ten thousand men do not matter to me when none of them know anything about the subject."

He must be a long time paint sniffer or something because he becomes loonier and loonier off the screen as time goes by.

Let see, As a armed security office, I carried a Beretta 92, 17 rounds in the gun, 2 spare magazines, Jimmy, The odds are Your security are carrying Glock 17s, Thats 18 rounds on the gun and 2, 17 round magazines, That is a total of 52 rounds hot and ready to go, So who are you trying to kid?

That is enough ammunition to carry out any of the Free Fire Zone massacres, That have taken place in America with rounds left over.
