The specific ad in question shows Bourne star Matt Damon pointing a gun toward passersby.

The U.S. has experienced a spike in its already alarmingly high number of mass shootings lately, and in response, Lena Dunham has come forward to advocate for the removal of guns from Jason Bourne subway ads.

In the post that Dunham shared, Sagher appears to have torn off a piece of a gun from one such ad, though not effectively enough to cover up the image of the gun entirely.

Dunham was quick to show her support for the idea by posting the image on her own Instagram channel with the caption, "Good idea @tulipbone!".

And Damon himself has spoken out for stricter gun laws, telling the Sydney Morning Herald that he wanted to see a future where easy access to heavy artillery wasn't the norm.

Tami and Lena's push to omit guns from the film's subway ads comes in the wake of last week's tragic shootings. The politics of gun control don't even necessarily enter into it; it's just a mental connection to a bunch of awful news that we all wish we could stop hearing about, and a chain reaction of events that we wish would just stop happening.

"People get so emotional that even when you make a suggestion about not selling AK-47s to people on terror watch lists, that's a non-starter".

On July 5 Breitbart News reported that Damon spoke at the Australian premiere of Jason Bourne and lamented that the US has not passed an Australian-style gun ban. "I don't know what needs to happen".
