Jim Carrey put his artistic talents to use to tackle gun manufacturers and the rash of school shootings with his latest work on Monday, offering a somber view on the topic.

The work, posted to Carrey’s Twitter account on Monday — days after the nation’s latest school shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas — offered his thoughts on the topic, both in picture and text.

“New Pledge for a Generation Betrayed,” Carrey wrote of the art, which depicted a classroom with rows of empty desks and windows riddled with bullet holes.

The image also bore the text, “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America/And to the gun makers for whom it stands/One nation, under greed, indefensible/With butchery and injustice for the most innocent of all.”

On Friday, a gunman opened fire at Santa Fey High School in Texas, ultimately leaving 10 people dead, CNN reported.

The suspect has been identified as Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, who allegedly used a shotgun and a .38 caliber revolver to carry out the shooting.
