This is Jim Carrey being classic Jim Carrey as he satirizes the "Cold Dead Hands" of Charleston Heston! I love the part with commentary by "Clearly Sam Elliot!" It is an entertaining song/video that will offend a few but that is often times what satire is meant to do while being funny too! Both aspects were accomplished. Now, there are some aspects of it that aren't funny, simply because they reference images that are graphic and saddening as one might expect with a satirical song about guns. But, this song is probably not for the easily offended if you cling to your guns with your "Cold Dead Hands."

I am not only rating the music quality. I am rating the entire package Jim Carrey has created.

Don't buy this song because you think it'll give the new Britney Spears (or whatever crap is on the radio these days) a run for its money. Purchase this song if you support the message, enjoy Jim Carrey's sense of humor, and enjoy lyrical depth in your music. The satire runs deep - it is smart and catchy. But it is a little crude. And if you're against gun control and think everyone should be walking around with AK-47s then this is not for you.

If you think this song may be for you, then keep reading: I give this five stars because it is smart, timely, and manages to be catchy. It is not the most radio-perfect tune. That is NOT the point. But it is still pretty good. It is an outdated musical sound. Think 1960s country (e.g. Marty Robbins' El Paso). Basically, this song sounds as outdated as Charlton Heston's viewpoint on guns. I love it though! The fie stars are well deserved because I agree with the political undertones, satire, it's funny, and it absolutely meets the five-star criteria of meeting its purpose, which is not ONLY music but all the other aforementioned qualities.

Nice job of satirizing "gun enthusiasts" here. If you thought Jim Carrey was all about silliness, listen to this gem. Comparisons I read in reviews here to Weird Al miss the point. Carrey takes a hard stand here and takes jabs at sacred cows. This is political commentary at it's finest. Country Joe and the Fish would be a better comparison.

Great satire, and the songs pretty good too. I wouldn't be surprised if the same people who take this seriously also take Fox News seriously. Thanks Jim!

It's been 80 years but I do believe Hollywood has found it's next great singing cowboy. You're still number 1 Gene!

I have always Loved Jim Carrey. I am even more thrilled that he is happy, healthy and coming to realize the "power of now" via Eckhart Tolle. Thank you Jim, for being brave and making your voice heard on the critical issue of Gun Control!

The meaning and depth of this song is only exceeded by its comedic truth. It is a harsh truth, but oh how it speaks bluntly of how unchristian, how evil, bloodthirsty people are who want nothing more than the opportunity to kill someone in violence. It reveals their ignorance, their evil, their insecurity, and ultimately their awful but obvious fate. Comedic Satire, even to the point of revealing how horrific the positive aspects of gun nuts are. It's not so positive when what was suppose to protect your family ends up killing them. Which is exactly what happens most of the time.

This song is just extremely well written.

It was kind of funny, but I disagree with the message so I can't give it a higher rating. Jim Carrey is free to hate guns but I will keep mine, thanks.
