Freedom is not free, and have you seen the price of guns and ammo lately?
Maybe that explains why a guns rights advocate from Wisconsin feeling the financial pinch of buying a gun to “protect his family” is selling an autographed 8×10 glossy of comedian Jim Carrey on eBay.
On eBay, the black and white photo emblazoned with Carrey’s trademark “spank you very much” is going for over $500, and there’s still 5 days to go.
I think he’ll be able to afford a Glock with that, but he’ll need a bit more to buy the Glock G30S .45 ACP he wants, which retails for about $650.
Almost 100 people have bid on the photo since it was posted Tuesday.
“Astrobuzz” (probably an alias) said he “lost all respect for Mr. Carrey after he released his ‘Cold Dead Hands’ video mocking responsible gun owners and Charlton Heston. I believe in the 2nd Amendment and my rights shall not be infringed! From MY cold dead hands Mr. Carrey!”
One eBay user suggests “the winning bidder in this noble cause bring the [photo] to the [shooting] range for proper disposal.”
Any bets on how long it takes eBay to remove this listing?
