Actor Jay Mohr: ‘The Second Amendment must go’

Plenty have made some astounding logical leaps in the confusing aftermath of today’s attack at the Boston Marathon, but really? We’re fully on board with “enough” and “violence has to stop,” but how does Jay Mohr manage to connect Point A to Point B with an attack on the Second Amendment? This is how:

Mohr did retweet this comment from the Jim Carrey School of Second Amendment Studies.

Update: As a public service to those of you asking who Jay Mohr is, here’s a photo of him in “Suicide Kings” helping change the culture of violence.

    An actor? Perhaps he should direct his anger towards the Hollywood producers who keep making violent movies…and the makers of violent video games. They’ll say they don’t matter but they DO!

    Why is it that libturds cannot spell at all?

    Also, I am pretty sure that repealing the second amendment will do nothing but INCREASE terrorist attacks like this. Scratch that. I KNOW repealing that second amendment will increase terrorist attacks.

    If he wants to live in “Utopia” where only the police and military has guns, North Korea is that way.

  • Shawneuser

    I am surprised because I’ve heard anti-union rants from Jay before, thought he was a moderate at worst.

  • SophieRo3

    Good luck getting 38 states to repeal the Second Amendment. You peeps should really stop insulting ‘Flyover Country.’ Big Kiss, Jay!

    • Mark81150

      They don’t even understand that, I suppose they think Obama can just write another of his illegal executive orders and abolish it. They will never get the votes to repeal one of the Bill of Rights,.. they can’t seem to get that..

      or maybe they do.. and hope to get enough Justices to change it to a meaningless mess, where they can simply pretend it doesn’t say what it does..

      not like Obama doesn’t already ignore the laws he doesn’t like.

  • greatunconformity

    It’s always elitists living inside their douche-bag bubbles, who want to strip us of our liberty in order to save us.

  • Shawneuser

    It is our media’s fault that people believe this “culture of violence” myth.

    In reality, violent crime, including gun violence, has been declining for years in this country.

    Secondly, you are less likely to be a victim of a violent crime in the US as in Canada, where you are twice as likely, four times as likely in the UK.

    The answer here is obvious, though overlooked. We have a huge country with 315 million people. We have a media who nationally telecasts every violent incident. Therefore, yes, our TVs are going to be non-stop violent acts.

  • Christina_bdba

    Another one off of my list to support. I have a better idea jay how about we go in numerical order and get rid of that pesky 1st one first…you know the one that allows Hollywood to make all of those horrible movies you’ve been in that glorify violence and other crimes.

    • Christoph DeHaven

      What bothers me most about today is that we’re getting used 2 it. ENOUGH. 1st amendment must go. Crappy films have 2 stop. Actors MUST change.

          • rogueco

            He’s such a progressive guy, he legally changed his name recently to include his wife’s surname – “Jay Furgeson Cox Mohr”. I guess he was too embarrassed to go with the common hyphenated option: “Mohr-Cox”

    Maybe we’re getting used to it because of second rate actors like Mohr doing so many movies/TV shows like Street Kings, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Outlaw, etc?

  • Guy Fromage

    Judging by the outrage and sadness being expressed by my conservative tweeps, right-thinking Americans are far from accustomed or resigned to these atrocities. I’m much more trouble by the #meh from the left, regarding #Gosnell. But then, what should one expect?

  • camnpat

    Yes Jay: why don’t we just pass a law banning all crime? … Oh, right- we already have laws against crimes and bad stuff still happens. Who knew that the crazy and the evil really don’t care about laws and regulations?

    At least I have the choice to protect my property (and property includes MY LIFE) as I see fit, whether that means with a gun or a knife.

    Good Lord!!!

  • Kabong30

    Yeah, ok, Jay Mohr. You and attention-whore Jim Carrey should get along swimmingly. MILLIONS of crimes are stopped by armed citizens EVERY YEAR! Pull your head out, buddy.

  • BigIrish63

    Apparently to be an actor you need no formal education ability to think intuitively. The point is Jay that if one Amendment of the Constitution is allowed to be usurped then they are all fair game. I suggest you pick up a book, preferably a History book, and do some reading. I have seen your last attempts at acting and know that you have excessive amounts of time on your hands. Use it wisely to educate yourself and then you and Jim Carrey can make a movie about how two worthless comedic hacks try to act like politicians.

  • rivers

    He isn’t the brightest candle in church. He doesn’t get that if the second amendment goes, so too can go the entire Constitution. Which would include the first amendment…and then hey! We might not have to listen to people of modest noteriety say foolish things….hmmm…

    Does he know that taking away the right to bear arms has occured in Germany under the Nazi’s, in the Soviet Union and China? Our right to bear arms is to protect us from Governmental Tyranny and that right shall not be infringed. Maybe Jay Moore should have paid more attention in History Class at Verona High School!

    Hey there Jay Mohr(on), it is the second amendment for a reason. You clearly like using your 1 amendment rights freely. Luckily for you, there is no requirement that you know what your talking about. If they taught history at acting school, you have known that the authors of the constitution had in mind that people bear arms, so there government would be much more likely to treat an armed society like citizens, instead of subjects, get it fool.

    One time my life was endangered, and simply the fact that I had a gun scared away the would-be perp. But this man would take that right away from me. Perhaps Jay Mohr would do well to regard the wisdom of an ancient source:

    Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent.

    Terrible event happens.. crazed gunman kills innocents..

    Conservative response.. we need to address the root causes of the violence.. the untreated mentally ill who are almost impossible through the law to commit until they actually kill people.

    Left wing response…. kill one of the Bill of Rights .. and any others which prevent us from getting our way..

    Which is the reasoned response?

    The fact is, the left adores it’s own guns just fine, it’s armed bodyguards,. their issue is regular unpoliliticaly connected citizens having guns. Because people like Jay will always have their guns,.. sucking up to the right lefty politicians will ensure that. It’s that people who he looks down his nose at, have the same right which kills him.

  • Matt Weber

    Wow. I thought Jay Mohr was a little more level-headed, but “2nd amendment must go”! Sure, in fact let’s abolish even more freedoms out of histrionic reaction to some idiot bomber.
