Actor shifts blame from Hollywood

Actor and comedian Jay Mohr waded into the gun debate on Twitter after Monday’s deadly terrorist attacks at the Boston Marathon.

“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,” the Jerry Maguire actor tweeted Monday night.

Mohr, who hosts a podcast and Jay Mohr Sports on Fox Sports Radio, followed it up with another tweet connecting the Second Amendment to a “culture of violence.”

The 2nd Amendment lends itself to the CULTURE of violence we are living in. Stop blowing up my timeline w your gun/porn fetishes.

Following push back on Twitter, Mohr elaborated on his contention further, explaining that he finds it sad that gun massacres are becoming increasingly common.

“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,” he tweeted.

He further stressed that his aim was not to politicize the event, but instead to point out what he described as a cultural numbness to violence.

“No politics here at all,” he tweeted. “Just sick of watching bloodshed on tv. It’s become reality tv and we’re becoming numb. Amazed at pro gun responses”
