LOS ANGELES, March 25 (UPI) -- Canadian-born comic actor Jim Carrey sings a satirical anti-gun song called "Cold Dead Hand" in a new Funny Or Die video posted online Monday.

The clip shows Carrey first doing a mocking impression of the late actor Charleston Heston, who was president of the National Rifle Association, then singing a country western-style song with a band, under the name of the band Lonesome Earl and the Clutterbusters,

warning of the dangers of gun possession.

"I find the gun problem frustrating and 'Cold Dead Hand' is my fun little way of expressing that frustration," Carrey said in a statement.
