Jim Carrey Apologizes to Assault Rifle Owners

Jim Carrey apologized to assault rifle owners via Twitter on Sunday.

Carrey mocked assault rifle owners in a musical parody in a 'Funny Or Die' video back in March.

In the video, Carrey sang a song called "Cold Dead Hand" about how Charlton Heston cannot enter heaven because his gun cannot be pried from his "cold dead hand." The lyrics included: "It takes a cold dead heart to pull the trigger."

On Sunday, Carrey tweeted: "Asslt rifle fans, I do not agree wth u, nor do I fear u but I do love u and I'm sorry tht in my outrage I called you names.That was wrong. 3^{"

The comedian/actor then added: "Btw I don't need a crisis mgr, just a conscience. Calling ppl names is inappropriate but my position on assault weapons hasn't changed. ;^}"

Last month, Carrey denounced the violence of his new film "Kick Ass 2," but hasn't said he would return the money he was paid to star in the film, notes
