Actor Jay Mohr Blames Boston Bombing On Gun Culture

Here's one for the "stupid actor" category.

Jay Mohr (Jay who?) actor/comedian of "Jerry Maguire" fame responded to the Boston Marathon tragedy on his Twitter feed with:

“What bothers me most about today is that we’re getting used 2 it. ENOUGH. 2nd amendment must go. Violence has 2 stop. Culture MUST change."
Uh, what does an IED have to do with the gun debate? A pressure cooker stuffed with bomb making material is not the same thing as a gun.  Yes, I agree this culture of violence must stop, but it has nothing to do with the Second Amendment.

Apparently, he received a lot of flak for his weet, and responded to the criticism with follow-up tweets:

“Newtown tragedy was gun violence. Where are u maniacs coming from. I’m just stating that its so sad we’re getting used to watching it on tv.”
Ya, Jay, Newton was gun violence, Boston was not. Dylan Quick stabbed a bunch of people at a Texas college with a knife. Point being that if someone is intent on harming others, there are many ways of doing that besides guns.

Not wanting to be blamed for politicizing, he wrote:
“No politics here at all." “Just sick of watching bloodshed on tv. It’s become reality tv and we’re becoming numb. Amazed at pro gun responses”
Yeah, it's politics.  Had it been another gun massacre, maybe he'd have a point, but it wasn't.  This has nothing to do with the Second Amendment, and all to do with the evil that exists in this world.
