Those who support gun control were not very happy with Jim Carrey's recent anti-gun sentiments, so they took to eBay to make their displeasure known. One person, who goes by the eBay username "astrobuzz," listed an item called "Jim Carrey Autographed 8X10 Photo So I Can Afford a Gun!"

The same change went for all other similar listings. eBay »
