Jim Carrey has weighed in on the gun control debate by comparing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to Osama bin Laden. The actor/artist referenced the total firearm-related deaths so far this year before saying that "what Osama bin Laden did to us was terrible but he doesn’t hold a candle to Mitch McConnell."

🔦 Carrey's comments ultimately compare the 10,000 firearm-related deaths so far in 2019 to the 3,000 deaths in the September 11th terrorist attacks. His reference to McConnell relates to the majority leader's reputation for opposing gun-control legislation. However, McConnell recently told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt that he would be glad to bring legislation to the Senate floor if President Trump supported it.
