“’The Daily Show’ took a disturbing turn on Tuesday night when Trevor Noah did a segment on the new law that the Iowa state House is working to pass allowing children under 14 to have handguns,” rawstory.com reports, intentionally misrepresenting the bill. As Raw Story previously reported, “The bill would allow anyone under the age of 14 to handle handguns under adult supervision, with no age limit.” But facts are but a minor inconvenience to the antis. And, as they say, you don’t cut funny. As above. Lke this . . .
“Beliebers vs. Directoners just got a whole lot more interesting,” Noah said about the notorious feud between teen Justin Bieber and One Direction fans.
Now that’s funny! Not true, but funny.
“Just to get this straight: Some guy picked up the phone and called a lawmaker and said ‘Hey, uh, my kids need guns.’ And they were like, ‘Done!’ And every day in America there’s parents calling lawmakers saying, ‘Hey, my kids died because of guns.’ And they’re like, ‘Uhh, can you hold?’” Meanwhile, in Iowa, you need a license to braid hair, but we’re giving children handguns. We can’t have condoms in school but kids can have guns.
There’s that word “have” again. Some might say gun control advocates “have” a problem with honesty. I’d “have” no problem with that if they did.
Anyway, I find it interesting that there’s no pro-gun comedy conservative newscaster. That said, I laugh at Sean Hannity a fair bit. Just sayin’.
