VIDEO: Jim Carrey sings about gun violence

Funnyman Jim Carrey sings about gun violence in this music video for Funny or Die.

Dressed up as the late Charlton Heston, who was elected the National Rifle Association's president back in the late 1990s, Carrey mocks gun owners and gun lobbyists in "Cold Dead Hand".

Carrey mentioned his song on Twitter Monday, tweeting "G'morning! Hope you're enjoying Cold Dead Hand. FYI,my bodyguard doesn't have a hundred rounds in his clip.I wish u all a bullet free day! ;^}"

Interesting choice of band members.

Funniest satire I have seen in a long time. The biting commentary of the NRA and the ingrained gun culture of the American right/fundamentalists is so appropriate. How can we thank Jim Carey for this biting satire?
