Elmer Fudd without a gun?
What a maroon.

From The Hill:
The new series “Looney Tunes Cartoons,” which premiered last week on the streaming service HBO Max, will feature the cartoon’s characteristic violence – using sticks of dynamite, booby traps and the iconic anvils and bank safes dropped onto characters, The New York Times reported last week.
However, Peter Browngardt, the series executive producer and showrunner, told the outlet, “We’re not doing guns.”
“But we can do cartoony violence — TNT, the Acme stuff. All that was kind of grandfathered in,” Browngardt told the outlet.
They’re ‘not doing guns’.
So how TF is Elmer supposed to hunt Bugs?
BREAKING NEWS: HBO Max has decided that Elmer Fudd will no longer be using a gun to try and kill Bugs Bunny. Instead, he will be reading him Alyssa Milano's Tweets, hoping it has a similar effect. pic.twitter.com/wCjM3u8LQk

Oh, that works.
He will just ruin Bugs life on social media.

Then he is not Elmer Fudd…entertainment elites have no understanding of Americans if they don't inhabit on of the coastlines on either side of the country…

It will be a dud, then.

There goes wabbit / duck season. That’s ok though. It was only one if the funniest bits. Maybe Elmer can open a wabbit rescue shelter. pic.twitter.com/GhrQi2l4gZ

Then what is the point.

There is none.
And if the responses to the idea of Elmer Fudd being disarmed are any indication this lame-a*s reboot will be a huge fail.
