The odds the NRA is laughing at Jim Carrey's new parody video are about a billion to one. In the video posted today on the website "Funny or Die", Carrey mocks gun control advocates, and even portrays one of the gun lobby's most well known supporters, the late Charlton Heston.
Gun supporters call Carrey a hypocrite, and conservative pundits didn't waste any time firing back. They say many of Carrey's movies have glamorized the same kind of violence he's speaking out against.
Carrey says he made the video because he's frustrated by the rash of gun violence, telling CNN's Nischelle Turner about his recent foray into politics.
"I want to treat it in a humorous way, but I guess I'm trying to say a little something," said Carrey.
Carrey's "Funny or Die" video has already racked up more than 200 thousand views.
