Jim Carrey has become the latest Hollywood star to wade into the gun control debate. The actor teamed up with Funny or Die to release a song Monday, titled “Cold Dead Hand,” that goes after gun rights advocates, specifically former NRA chief Charlton Heston, who died in 2008.
In a tweet Sunday about the song and video, Carrey said:

In a statement provided by Funny or Die, Carrey said, “I find the gun problem frustrating and ‘Cold Dead Hand’ is my fun little way of expressing that frustration.” Carrey recorded the song with the band Eels.
