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...

It doesn't take a genius to realize that, here in America, we have an ongoing issue with gun violence.

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

Our country has been ravaged by horrific mass shootings for decades...

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.

We even have a "Mass Shooting Tracker."

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.

Hell, you can even purchase guns at your local supermarket.

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.

The statistics are harrowing.

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

Despite these terrifying statistics, so many Americans still believe the right to bear arms is more important than the right to live...

But, thankfully, these people are becoming a minority.

Every day, more and more people are standing up against the casual use of guns in our country.

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

Too many lives have been lost...

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.

As of yet, President Trump is yet to make any change to these laws...

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

The cable television company, HBO has revealed that they are taking a stand against the ongoing gun violence in America...

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

The TV channel has recently launched a “Looney Tunes Cartoons" reboot...

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.

So this means that the characters, Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam, will no longer have guns.

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."

A snippet of the revived cartoon was released...

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

But, of course, people aren't happy with the decision.

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.

Some believe that the cartoon is completely ruined without the presence of a gun...

That really sums up America, doesn't it?

And some believe that it is the start of something pretty drastic...

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

It seems that HBO have lost a few viewers...

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...
