As the national debate on gun control continues to heat up, some artists have responded with support for tougher laws on firearms.

One group of artists-cum-activists recently spoke out against the Second Amendment with posters in support of gun control. But a new photoblog named Thumbs & Ammo takes a more lighthearted approach to the issue by editing famous movie stills so our favorite superheroes, gangsters and cowboys give a hearty thumbs-ups instead of wielding guns.

"Real tough guys don't need guns, they just need a positive, can-do attitude," according to the blog's tagline.
