Jim Carrey said that the terror attacks of 9/11, responsible for 3,000 deaths and masterminded by Osama Bin Laden, doesn’t compare to the “gun deaths” the Hollywood actor says Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is responsible for.
“10,000 gun deaths in 2019 and the year is far from over. What Osama bin Laden did to us was terrible but he doesn’t hold a candle to Mitch McConnell,” Jim Carrey said in a Tweet that included an imagine of a hand holding a $100 bill being dipped in blood.

The Sonic the Hedgehog star’s latest politically charged drawing comes in the wake of the horrific shooting in Midland-Odessa, Texas, that saw and a gunman kill seven people and injured 22 others. It also comes after San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors voting to unanimously declare the National Rifle Association (NRA) a terrorist organization.
The NRA — an organization committed to expanding and defending the Constitutional right of law-abiding citizens to arm themselves — constantly finds itself at the center of attacks from the left, from Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden who has vowed to “defeat the National Rifle Association” to left-wing Hollywood to Billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun organization Moms Demand Action.
Jim Carrey, though has long targeted the NRA. Last March, Carrey called NRA head Wayne LaPierre a “demon from hell.” A month earlier, the Dumb and Dumber star shared a blood-soaked painting of a bullet hole-riddled schoolgirl over an American flag.
