Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam Will No Longer Carry Guns in ‘Looney Tunes’ Reboot and People Aren’t Happy

Share on Facebook

In the latest move to tackle the ongoing gun violence across our country, it has been announced that the infamous cartoon characters, Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam, will no longer carry firearms.

It sounds like a great decision, right?

Well, people are not happy. Keep scrolling for the full story…

With the easy accessibility of firearms and the ludicrously slack restrictions, pretty much anyone can get their hands on a gun these days.

And why is that? Because our government seems to think that it’s more important for a person to “have the right to bear arms” than it is to have the right to live safely in their community.

When a country needs a website to keep track of its nearly-daily mass shootings, you know things need to change. The Mass Shooting Tracker is a crowd-sourced database of U.S. mass shootings, with the website defining a “mass shooting” as a single outburst of violence in which 4 or more people are shot.

And it has laid out the horrifying statistics plain and clear in a graph that organizes each shooting and fatality by month and year. The numbers speak for themselves and highlight just how dangerous our country has become.

What kind of world is this?

It’s time for our government to wake up.

Because the number of mass shootings across the U.S. in 2019 outpaced the number of days in the year, according to a gun violence research group.

On average, 100 people in America are killed by guns every day, while a further 100,000 people are shot every year.  

But, thankfully, these people are becoming a minority.

Across the last few years, thousands upon thousands of people have taken to the streets to protest violence and death caused by firearms.

And more people than ever before are urging the government to make a change to the laws that regulate and allow the sale of guns.

But there is one company that has recently taken a large and defiant stand against the use of guns across our country.

By completely removing the presence of guns from one of their popular cartoon reboots.

And, in doing so, they have taken out all cartoon guns used in the popular cartoon series in response to the ongoing gun violence across America.

Speaking about the decision, executive producer, Peter Browngardt, explained: “We’re not doing guns. But we can do cartoony violence – TNT, the Acme stuff. All that was kind of grandfathered in.”

He reassured fans that all the classic Looney Tunes violence will be intact…

It will just be without the presence of guns. “The old Looney Tunes violence is here, too: the sticks of dynamite, the intricate booby traps, the anvils, and bank safes dropped on unsuspecting heads.”

And Fudd’s rifle had been replaced with a scythe.

Rather than applaud HBO on their inventive way of reducing the promotion of gun violence, people took to Twitter to complain and despair over the lack of guns. Evidently, these cartoons are simply unwatchable without a gun present.

That really sums up America, doesn’t it?

Wow, these people really love their guns, don’t they?

But, going by their attitudes towards guns, it seems that the TV channel is better off without them. For more on the ludicrous gun violence in our country, keep scrolling to read about what tourists are warned before taking a trip to the States…
