Colbert inadvertently just proved the case against gun control…and for building The Wall.
In a monologue lamenting the lack of political action in response to mass shootings, late-night host Stephen Colbert unwittingly made the case for more expansive gun ownership….
“Not just now, but at any time in human history,” he continued. “Five thousand years ago, if your village had a tiger coming into it every day and was eating people, you wouldn’t do nothing. You would move the village, you would build a fence or you would kill the tiger. You wouldn’t say, ‘Well, I guess, you know, someone’s going to get eaten every day, because the price of liberty is tigers.’ You’d take some action.”….
So you'd what…. ban tigers?
You'd shoot the tiger, that's what you'd do. #Silly
