Starting Jan. 20, the pair’s Los Angeles radio talk show “Mid-Day La with Jillian Barberie & John Phillips” will move from its current 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. timeslot to the higher profile 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. period.

In the promotion of the video, Carrey took it a step further, calling those who opposed gun control "heartless motherf--kers unwilling to bend for the safety of our kids."
