Stephen Colbert Takes The Gloves Off: Gun Control
Stephen Colbert Takes The Gloves Off: Gun Control


A QUESTION FOR YOU FOLKS. YOU READY FOR THIS? THIS IS A PERSONAL QUESTION. YOU GUYS READY?( CHEERS )
IS ANYBODY HERE A HUMAN?
ARE YOU HUMAN? ARE YOU HUMAN HERE? THEN THIS NEXT STORY MAY UPSET
YOU. I’M UPSET. WE ALL HAVE JOBS TO DO, RIGHT? I’M DOING MY JOB RIGHT NOW, AND
I GOT THESE CAMERAS IN HERE TO PROVE IT. AND AFTER THE ATTACKS IN
ORLANDO, FLORIDA, I THOUGHT MAYBE THE GOVERNMENT MIGHT DO
THEIR JOB AND PASS ANY KIND OF LAW, EVEN A FIG LEAF TO JUSTICE
THEIR EXISTENCE. WELL, FOR THINKING THAT, I OWE
ME AN APOLOGY. NOW, THERE WAS A VOTE. SENATOR CHRIS MURPHY’S 15-HOUR
FILIBUSTER MADE THAT HAPPEN. BUT YESTERDAY, EACH PARTY
INTRODUCED TWO GUN BILLS, AND ALL FOUR OF THOSE BILLS WERE
VOTED DOWN. THEY COULDN’T EVEN AGREE TO
KEEP PEOPLE ON THE TERROR WATCH LIST FROM BUYING HIGH-POWERED
ASSAULT RIFLES. IT’S EASY TO FEEL HOPELESS,
ESPECIALLY WITH HEADLINES LEADING UP TO THE VOTES LIKE
“GUN CONTROL BILLS EXPECTED TO FAIL IN SENATE ON MONDAY.” “SENATE SET TO VOTE ON FOUR GUN
CONTROL MEASURES, NONE EXPECTED TO PASS.” “SENATE STRIKES DEAL TO VOTE ON
DOOMED GUN PROPOSALS.” AND “JUSTIN BIEBER IS SET TO
CASH IN MILLIONS FROM HIS NEW LINE OF EMOJIS: “JUSTMOJIS.” NOW, I KNOW THAT LAST ONE IS NOT
ABOUT THE SENATE, BUT IT STILL MAKES ME FEEL PRETTY HOPELESS. ( LAUGHTER )
I DON’T UNDERSTAND YOU SENATORS. 92% OF AMERICANS WANT TO EXPAND
BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR GUN BUYERS, AND YOU JUST IGNORE
THEM. SINCE WHEN DOES 8% OF THE
POPULATION GET TO HAVE TOTAL CONTROL OF AN ISSUE? THAT’S LIKE TAKING YOUR ENTIRE
FAMILY ON A CROSS-COUNTRY CAR TRIP AND LETTING GRANDMA CHOOSE
ALL THE MUSIC. ( LAUGHTER )
“NANA! “NANA! GLEN MILLER IS GREAT, BUT I’M
GOING TO RUN A HOSE FROM THE TAILPIPE TO MY MOUTH.” ( LAUGHTER )
I’M SORRY! I’M SORRY. YOU KNOW WHAT? YOU KNOW WHAT? YOU KNOW WHAT? I’M SORRY,
I KNOW IT MUST BE HARD TO BE IN THE SENATE AND FIND COMMON
GROUND ON SUCH A POLITICALLY FRAUGHT ISSUE, AND, YOU KNOW
WHAT? ( BLEEP ) THAT. I’M GOING TO TAKE THE GLOVES
OFF. ( APPLAUSE )
HERE WE GO. ROUND ONE! HIT IT! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
HEY SENATE HEY, SENATE, MY DOG ACCOMPLISHED
MORE THAN YOU THIS WEEK WHEN HE ROLLED OVER AND LICKED HIS NUTS. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
HEY, SENATE, I’VE SEEN BUGS TRAPPED IN AMBER MOVE FASTER
THAN YOU. HEY, YOU GUYS THINK A TERRORIST
WATCH LIST IS WHEN YOU PUT “HOMELAND” ON YOUR NETFLIX
QUEUE. YOU KNOW WHAT? YOU MIGHT AS WELL ASK THE GUN
LOBBY TO CHECK FOR A HERNIA, AS LONG AS THEY’VE GOT YOUR BALLS
IN THEIR HAND. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
SENATE, SENATE, YOU COULDN’T PASS A BILL IF IT WAS COATED IN
EX-LAX. ( APPLAUSE )
BUT IF YOU EVER DID PASS A BILL, IT WOULD SAY, “BE IT RESOLVED:
NO KISSING, AND THE N.R.A. SHOULD JUST LEAVE THE MONEY ON
THE DRESSER.” SENATE, SENATE, YOU ACCOMPLISH
SO LITTLE THAT KYLIE JENNER WANTS TO KNOW WHAT THE HELL YOU
DO FOR A LIVING. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
SENATE, SENATE, YOU’VE GOT MORE OLD WHITE MEN LYING AROUND THAN
A LIFE ALERT AD. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
YOU ARE SO DIVIDED, YOU COULDN’T COME TOGETHER IF YOU HAD 30
HOURS AND A ( BLEEP ) REACH SUPERSTING. YOU’RE LIKE GRANDPA AFTER AN
ALL-STARCH DINNER: YOU CAN’T GET (BLEEP) DONE. ( BELL RINGING )
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) ♪ ♪ ♪
I’M STILL UPSET, BUT I FEEL A LITTLE BETTER. WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH AUBREY
PLAZA.

  17. TheSilverPhoenix100 says:

    I love how modern liberals ignore the thousands of gun laws we have on the books and dont even bother to do the most basic research into these guns, instead rely on these jackass comedians and activists to stand on the graves of kids using them as a shield to protect them from valid criticisms of their lack of knowledge when it comes to guns. If your argument is to paint the pro second amendment side as "not caring about kids" then your argument is 1) factually incorrect 2) Lazy and weak, but hey this is 2018 and lets face it this sums up most modern liberals pretty well id say. Give us real solutions that arent simply taking guns away becasue if thats your only solution then yeah it wont pass.

  18. Box of Rocks Productions says:

  19. Robert Tevault says:

    Surprise: Every commie comedian in America wants to collectivize the guilt of a few individuals at incredible cost to the masses, which is a typical hypocrisy of the social change agents called 'celebrities' in America. More smug, jackass, useful idiots, please; more emotional, exploitation of federal actor teens. Playing into the hands of a deep state, socialist coup is what the Left is best at. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=C9vSXxAzK_4

  20. Brett G says:

    Fuck you and everything your show stands for. Stop pushing your liberal anti American right hating bullshit. You used to be funny until you abuse your power by pushing a political agenda. Real Americans are waking up to the left and how shameless you are to try and manipulate and use your biased hatred to gain ground. Fuck you Colbert . You want to talk about saving human lives? How about you cover abortion. You and the left are a bunch of fucking cowards. You and the left wipe your ass with the flag and try to claim your real americans. Safe space, 65 genders and you can't hurt anyone's feelings anymore your PC bullshit is getting torn apart like your butt cheeks in prison. Fuck you and fuck the left

    The government is human as well and by far, the greatest amount of gun violence has been committed by governments on unarmed citizens.

  23. stuckinDetroit65 says:

    I must be getting really old… I remember when this guy used to be funny. I wonder how many armed security are on that set, or at the gated community where he lives? Or how many armed security walk discreetly behind him while he strolls around outside his limo at award shows, and public appearances? HYPOCRITE!

  24. Colin Leung says:

    A suggestion for Gun Control in America
    There is to be a Web site, a forum for a solution. The thoughts, ideas and reactions of a people are analysed and synthesised by 5 panels of experts resulting in the production of 5 Options.
    The Options are ranked by the people. The one with the highest ranking becomes a Recommendation and if accepted, becomes the Decision and Law.
    Note:
    1) People involved in this decision making process must be Independent Thinkers, not stooges for an organisation.
    2) The objective is to make “The view of a People” into “The Law of a People”: policies without politics or politicians.
    3) The voice of a People is stronger than the voice of a President. Is there a better way to deal with Gun Control and Donald Trump? An answer please, Mr Stephen Colbert and whoever cares.

    America used to be the dream, dream country to live in, dream country to visit, now it has been turning more and more into a nightmare. I am sorry, but it seems like they care about guns and money, more than the lives of their own children. It should not come down to giving teachers guns and having drills incase of a mass shooter. I do not understand how the parents still feel comfortable sending their kids to school. My country, although it is small, the worst thing that I ever had to fear in school was, what if it caught on fire, the only drills our schools have are fire drills, which would happen twice a year (it was not that big of a worry though, cause school fires have not really been a thing, i dunno). And people say it is not the gun who killed these kids it is the person. Well he would have not been able to kill 17 kids in high school, if he did not have a gun. Yes, banning guns will not stop bad things from happening. What it will do, is stop bad things happening in such big masses and it will stop being as lethal.

  26. larry land says:

    The pharmaceutical companies kill many more people than guns do and is one of the biggest Scams in man kinds history.

  27. Nick F says:

    "they couldn't pass a bill to keep people on the terror watch list from buying high powered assaultb rifles" 1 the terror watch list is garbageand people are put on it on a whim 2 it's already really really really hard to get a class 3 license, which you would need to purchase an "assault rifle" 3 the fact that the pro gun control side is so intent on labeling me a malicious entity makes me doubt your intentions in turn, as (according to my reasoning) anyone who gave a shit about stopping deaths would try to get more people ontheir side, rather than deomonising those who don't agree.

  28. Cindy O'Hara says:

    PROTECTING YOURSELF IS VERY IMPORTANT!! SHOULD JUST OLDER PEOPLE HAVE THIS RIGHT? Come to SW Florida where the Drug Mafia haunts the lives of anyone who talks and has made workers their prisoners, controlling wages and laundering money.

  31. lenn55 says:

    I talked with a 30 year veteran of the local police. He told me that if there is ever a national disaster like an earthquake, EMP from the sun or from an attack, or even mass riots like we've had here before in LA he and many of his fellow cops will stay home and protect their families. So if most of the cops are at home protecting their loved ones then who's protecting the rest of us?? Simple. It's up to families to protect themselves. And how do you do that? Not with harsh words and sticks. When roving bands of rioters, rapists, ect come to your neighborhood the only way to protect your loved ones is with a gun. Calling 911 will be a wasted of time. It's the responsibility of the adults in your family to protect your children and your elderly. Wake up people and stop thinking the gov't will protect you. 99% of the time in a normal situation they come after the damage has been done to write the reports.

    Mr. Colbert, you sir are a Socialist scumbag. You actively spew smack about our President every chance you get, and now you are getting behind the movement to remove my 2nd amendment right to keep and bear arms that is afforded EVERY U.S. citizen, and it shall not be infringed! Socialist whine about all the shootings of the children, yet you actively defend abortion! The MURDER of the unborn! Socialists are only getting behind this anti-gun movement to strip our 2nd amendment, and once that is accomplished, they will strip us of the 1st amendment! Well sir, I am telling you that many Americans are joining gun rights organizations in record numbers, gun and ammo sales are through the roof, and we WILL NOT go quietly and SURRENDER OUR RIGHTS TO A TYRANNICAL MOVEMENT! YOU and YOURS CAN GO STRAIGHT TO HELL!

    For those said media didn't care about gun control before Parkland, shame on you.

  37. Hick Rarrison says:

    You're still not going to take our guns. Just because you buy an Ak-47 or any other rifle doesn't mean you should be on the terrorist watch list. If you're going to do that you better do the same when people buy pressure cookers and manure. More people die by being stabbed to death or being aborted. Gun rate crimes and stabbings increased in the U.K enough that people are protesting knifes. It seems you would rather punish the innocent and turn them into criminals than actually looking at the real problem. You're cherry picking every school shooting with ar-15 while more school shooting deaths came by common hunting rifles and handguns. You left wing nutjobs like to blame the NRA because they're an escape goat. You're not going to take our guns and you never will and the military will help us because in their solemn oath they will protect the constitution. Will not be infringed

  53. Mikka says:

    That guns should be removed fromt he civil people in America is the most obvious thing in the world. The US citizens carry over 40% of the privately owned guns in the world. It makes absolutely no sense that in a country with 325 million people, everyone should have a basic right to own a gun. "We run background checks, so it's all good" oh really? is it? I have a clear background. I'm sure Stephen Colbert got a clear background. I'm sure Stephen Paddock and Nik Cruz had a clear background also before they killed 58 and 17 people. It's unheard of that people have "the right to bear arms" and to protect themselves. Sure you do, but is a firearm really the absolutely only thing you can have, to protect yourself? A firearm that even the police use as "the last way out" (at least in most countries), is that what civilised people need to protect themselves? It almost sounds like it's just an eager to own a gun, more than it is to protect yourself, and that's why people want it….

    And yet people have the audacity to say that USA isn't really the leading country when it comes to mass shootings. They're actually behind Norway, and other countries like France. What??? there's been ONE mass shooting in Norway, EVER. If you say that the US is so far behind, it means you're looking at mass shootings per capita, which is the most disgusting and dishonest, let alone inaccurate way of measuring it. 77 people got killed in the mass shootings in Norway. Which has a population on 5 million. Ofc that's gonna affect the mass shootings per capita measurement. But if you use that logic, then you mean it can be 10 mass shootings with 20 lives lost in China, and 1 mass shooting with 10 lives lost in the US, and it's still the US who has a bigger problem with mass shooting. That logic basically says that the more people it is in one country, the more "room" it has for mass shootings when it comes to scoring low on tests like this. It makes no sense, and it frustrates me that people say that US doesn't have a problem with mass shootings, compared to other countries and uses that, as an argument for keeping guns. YOU ARE THE LEADING COUNTRY IN MASS SHOOTINGS. PERIOD. THERE IS NOT A COUNTRY ON PLANET EARTH THAT HAS MORE MASS SHOOTINGS THAN YOU.

    I want to imply that I do believe that, removing guns requires a follow up. I don't think the government can simply take the guns and leave it like this. Statistics shows that guns do indeed save lives in America, and it is a dangerous country, with cultural differences, poverty and corruption. More so than most countries, so yeah I do believe the guns do have their practical functions, but that doesn't mean THAT is the only reason you'll need to keep them. There are other solutions. So removing guns, also means they need to step up with other safety measures. Definitely. It's a complicated process, but a necessary one. REMOVE GUNS.

  56. Anon says:

    At a certain point we have to ask ourselves when is it time to stop making jokes about this subject and start with the tough conversations.
    Can't believe in saying this but Jimmy Kimmel has it spot on on his latest school shooting monologue, no jokes no humour just the facts.
    The jokes about the senate and GOP never passing gun control laws…only serve to trivialise the subject.
    Haha another school shooting… Haha lazy corrupt politicians…
    Haha more dead children!
    Little babies full of bullet holes bits of their heads are missing haha.

  57. ShelbyBrie says:

    I want to see change but this type of video/humour isn’t what will do it in my mind

  58. Zachary Asbill says:

    It’s sad that the “assault rifle” that you all are so scared of shoots a bullet little larger than a .22 and only shoots one bullet for each trigger squeeze. You people are clueless.

  59. Eden At War says:

    Lmao…. spoken like someone with privilege, money and bodyguards. You have nothing to worry about .Just to keep yourself in the good graces of the people that own you. I can’t imagine what it must feel like when you finally understand that you’re a cartoon .

  60. ieatyomama says:

    00:55 this lying weasel said "people on the terror watch list" are allowed to purchase "high powered assault rifles". That is two lies that idiots want to believe. Any name on the terror watch list cannot purchase any type of firearm. There are very few people in the United States who are allowed to legally own an assault rifle. The closest the majority on Americans can purchase/own would be something like an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle. Feel free to google the definition of "assault rifle" so you can see the real definition instead of taking my, or the lying weasel's word for it. How are so many educated, well meaning, caring, compassionate people so stupid? It is a brainwashing technique that is being used against them. In a nutshell the hypnotist will look you right in the eye (in the weasel's case straight into the camera), and they come right out and say what they want to indoctrinate you with, in this case gun control and the republican majority house and senate not passing gun control. Just as soon as he plants his brainwashing seed in your brain he then adds the fertilizer that nourishes that seed allowing it to take root. In this case he goes completely off topic and talks about Justin Bieber's emojis. This technique is used in brainwashing because it takes the subject matter, in this case gun control, and it moves it from your conscious part of your brain and plants it into your subconscious brain. Ok, before you go on some rant against me because you love the weasel I want you to do one thing. Watch the video again, but this time when you watch it I want you to actually watch the weasel, watch his eyes and his gestures. As the video starts you can see him looking all over the room both left and right. Then he asks if you are human and gives a little joke so you'll loosen up and be more susceptible to this type of brainwashing technique. When he starts training you he looks directly at you never looking away, he will constantly stare at you the entire time the seed is being planted. After he gets his thought in your head he displays images that appear to be newspaper headlines. They may or may not be real, this tactic sears the gun control sentiment into your brain. After the camera comes back to the weasel he completes his Bieber joke looking you straight in the eye and the last word of the joke is "hopeless". At that point he looks away from the camera for a moment. That was intentional, he looked away to break eye contact, that stopped the nightly indoctrination and then he went on to make jokes about the senate. People go see him to laugh and be entertained. But it is more like a little kids at the dinner table, the indoctrination is like the liver and onions you are forced to swallow before you can get the chocolate cake dessert (the jokes). People like the weasel is why so many women and homosexuals demand the immigration of muslims. Women are treated like farm animals in the 8 countries on the ban list and the homosexuals there are tortured and murdered. And yet these vulnerable members of society overlook the fact they could be raped or murdered by one of these people they insist can come here and live beside them. Most normal rational thinking people don't act the way so many in our society do, but the brainwashed drones are trained to do as they are told even if it puts their lives and future in danger.

    Its time to vote these senators out of office and give us someone who will fix this problem.

    It's great that liberals can't pass ANY gun laws.

  63. Kristian Brandt says:

    And as predicted in the last three months fuck all has been achived. There is a silver lining to all this though. America's youth now know that Republican NRA supporters don't give two shits about them, and by 2020 they'll be old enough to vote.

  64. revolutionpm says:

    This person is an actor. He is scripted.
    He only gets paid if he toes the Soros line.
    His opinion will be that of his writer(s).
    If he writes his own script, he knows it had better
    be ok with Soros.
    Or he will not be there long.
    Remember when watching his stage act that he is a puppet.
    His job is to parrot whatever he has to in order to remain
    in his handler, Soros', favor.
    He is a joker on stage, a regular guy when not on script.
    Doesn't matter what his true feelings are, he will
    corrupt anything in order to maintain his life style.
    His mouth is owned by George Soros.

  65. david r says:

    The fact this asshole Colbert still has a show, proves how despicable milennials as a group are.

  66. Glenn Webb says:

    ESAD scum.

  67. Jacob Steeves says:

    Statistically, assault weapons (not rifles) are used in less mass shootings than the humble handgun. And what has been done to help with that? Quit the bullshit late night hosts.

  68. Mykle Lape says:

    Left wing garbage

  69. Two-tone Blue says:

    I've never owned a gun.

    Why do you fuckers need guns? I don't need a gun.

  70. Dennis Hendrix says:

    What fine precisely track society walk assign oversee setting ad.

  71. Alex C says:

    Colbert and his boot licking fans, begging to have their freedoms and rights taken from them.

  72. scooter mcclevis says:

    A family member told me the 2nd was only about citizens only having ball & musket, that our fore- fathers had no intentions of more advanced firearms like an AR15 to be in the hands of the common man. This guy is a lawer. I said ok fair enough if it should be that way then i say the 1st Amm. should only be limited to the printing press and using you own voice in the town square. Because our fore fathers had no intentions of the advancements of telephone,photograph, and internet (which porn is distributed) T.V. or radio.. he responded by saying the none of those advancements can kill people. I said really? muslim ppl dont get indoctrinated by watching isis propaganda on the internet? Then this lawer just walked away… do ya think our GOD fearing founders would have supported porn? No!! However they still wouldnt put any clause in the 1st Amm limiting its power same as the 2nd Amm..

  73. Atahualpa Ozoria says:

    Bad guy don’t buy guns legally. Don’t be stupid

  74. CJ official says:

    I m going out to shot my ar 15, barret 50 bmg, Ak 74, Mp 5, uzi …😂 fucking libtards .

  75. Brent Lundberg says:

    You are a stupid mother fucker

  76. ClarinoI says:

    This popped up and I assumed it was related to Los Angeles or Pittsburgh. It's over two years old. Such a shame that it could so easily be from last week.

  77. Taylor Talbert says:

    Was that supposed to be funny? That entire segment was garbage

  78. Wells Aamodt says:

    High powered assault rifles? The ar-15 is considered a varmint rifle in many states. it is illegal to hunt deer with a 223 in those states. The're considered good for prairie dogs, coyotes, and small game. I own a bolt action and a single shot rifle in .223. The single shot is a beautiful rifle, mirror blue and one of the the most beautiful stocks I have seen. By no means are any of my ,223s high powered.

    Perhaps an intelligent argument instead of the emotion component for ratings.

  80. BadBatch Productions says:

    Ar doesn't stand for assult rifle it stands for Armalite Rifle the manufacturer of the AR-15

  81. Michael Johnson says:

    You guys do know that handguns cause the most deaths in terms of firearms right? Handguns ARE semi-automatic. Do you want to ban those too?

  82. Michael Johnson says:

    So many people want everyone to give up their guns but hate Trump. If you believe Trump and the government are evil, then WHY would you give up our guns over to them? If you believe that their is police brutality in the USA, then WHY do you want only cops to be armed? It's very easy to talk about gun control reformation when you live in a gated community with your mom paying everything for you. I guarantee you Colbert has plenty of armed bodyguards WHEREVER he goes.

  83. penny wise says:

    If the democraps take away guns believe me there would probably be more crimes.

  84. cody ralston says:

    What legislation would people from the Democratic party suggest that would stop these shootings from happening? I'm all for effective solutions I just have yet to hear one.

  85. F Mann says:

    If a gunman obtained his weapon legally, then Your gun laws didn't work .If a gunman obtained his weapon illegally, then your gun laws didn't work.

  86. Kickin Rocks says:

    The assault weapon claim has not been thought out. Ar15's are not military weapons. Although they issue similar rifles in the military. They also issue pistols as side arms, shotguns for breaching, and bolt action rifles for long range. If you use the 'military weapons' or 'assault weapon' argument to differentiate an ar15 from other firearms, you dont know what you're talking about. You're actually arguing for the ban of All civilian firearms. And we say no.

  87. Alfred Gerogiannis says:

    Shall not be infringed! #MAGA2020

  88. Topper Harley says:

    Quite a few Trump fans showed up in this comment feed 11 months ago. 11 months. When 2 things happened. Yet another well publicised shooting, and Colbert was placed on the "enemies list". Well played forces of evil, well played

  89. YuckyPickles says:

    Stephen, love your show! You should do a monologue on when the government that's supposed to do its job was controlled by the Democrats (House AND Senate) for two years under president Obama, for a time with a filibuster proof senate, on they did absolutely nothing on gun control, immigration, tax reform among many other issues. Nothing when they had the power to do so and that president Obama promised he would address in his first term, and didn't. Why don't you talk about that?

  90. Jacob McBride says:

    Grape juice makes my poop smell like burning plastic!!

  91. Man Plan says:

    The CDC reports that up to three million lives are saved by simply pulling out a gun without firing a shot every year. If guns were banned, that would be up to three million people dead.
    That number is higher than the number of gun related deaths every year.
    Gun control is not the answer.
    Look at the terrorist that used a truck to run over people in New York.
    What about the Oklahoma city Bomber?
    Or the Boston marathon bomber?
    If someone wants to harm you, they don't have to use a gun.
    Look at England, where knives are banned, but people are still being stabbed. Stop blaming innocent gun owners for the crimes of the few.
    It's like saying, "we will stop drunk driving by taking away all alcohol"
    Guess what, they will probably go to the doctor for Xanax…
    Sorry Colbert, but you just lost this fight.

  92. A.W. W. says:

    Shall not be infringed. Not to hard to understand. Pretty simple really.

  93. Deshon Robinson says:

    It's not 8%. It's the NRA.

    That and the fact that gerrymandering allows them to pick their voters instead of the voters picking them.

  94. Pablo Hernandez says:

    For everyone who doesn't accept the 2nd Amendment:

    Dear Anti-American,
    I'm writing this letter to let you know that our beloved and so necessary 2nd Amendment will NEVER be taken away from us. We The People will defend it until our last blood drop is drained from our veins. Get your facts and statistics straight and make sure you count the millions of lives that will be lost if firearms will get banned in this beautiful country!
    Civil war might be closer than what you all think, and you all are fueling this to come at an early date!

    Best regards,
    Your American-Hearted Warrior!

  95. kolbiyashi says:

    All gun laws are infringements

  96. Fred H says:

    This guy Colbert is so stupid

  97. joe cole says:

    Of course he ignores how countries like Australia have a thriving black market for guns.

  98. Jeff Harwell says:

    I feel senators are doing a good job by not passing “feel good laws” that will be ineffective. Guns still save 500,000 to 3,000,000 lives a year and only take 30,000 most of which are suicide and gang related (not that those should be tolerated but are simply likely to happen guns or no guns) according to CDC so guns seem to do a lot more good than bad. It’s just math. Doesn’t mean it’s not sad when some one is shot but it’s also great when a gun saves a life.

  99. its Me says:

    I remember when these show were to entertain, not preach political Ideologies.

  100. KERRY GITCHEL says:

    Gun-control = Deprivation of rights under color of law like the Red flag law
