The characters of Looney Tunes will soon see a new audience thanks to a reboot of the classic cartoons. However, there’s a notable change to the format. Both Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam won’t be armed. The trademark guns they once carried have been removed from the concept for the Looney Tunes reboot which will air on HBO Max.

Elmer Fudd’s double-barreled shotgun and Yosemite Sam’s pistols won’t be a part of the famed cartoons going forward. Yet, oddly enough, Bugs Bunny will still be hunted by Fudd. Except instead of firearms, the fumbling hunter will be using a scythe!

News of the revised format for the famous cartoon characters comes as gun sales in the U.S. have skyrocketed. A report by The New York Times indicates that during the month of March 2020, Americans purchased approximately 2 million guns, making it the second-highest month for gun sales ever, just behind January 2013. Citing fear of civil unrest due to the pandemic, the report indicates that the lesser fear of gun-purchasing restrictions was overcome by the desire to protect oneself and families.

Companies such as Guns.com, which has created a seamless and safe online gun buying experience, have stepped up to the plate in the discussion. Authentic Texan is proud to be working with Guns.com, a company that’s been in operation for 10 years, backed by knowledgeable and reliable service that works within the bounds of federal licensing.

As Authentic Texans, we stand by our 2nd Amendment. The decision to remove guns from the Looney Tunes reboot has had some mixed online reactions. In an interview with The New York Times, the cartoon’s executive producer Peter Browngardt said, “We’re not doing guns. But, we can do cartoony violence — TNT, the Acme stuff. All that was kind of grandfathered in.” The usual conflict-laden storylines of “two characters trying to kill each other” will continue. The removal of firearms is grounds for further debate, and it will likely become a discussion in households throughout America when the cartoon debuts on HBO Max. Here in Texas, we too have different perspectives on guns. We know our rights, and we promote safe gun use whenever and wherever possible – the antithesis of the abstinence breeds ignorance mindset. Is it right to remove firearms and replace them with other violent weapons? What are your thoughts on the reboot of the Looney Toons? And if you’re ready to make your next gun purchase, you’re sure to be satisfied with the Guns.com experience!
