Colbert inadvertently just proved the case against gun control…and for building The Wall.

Via Washington Times.

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.”….

    Not sure about the tiger reference. Colbert once worked for Louis C.K.

    Mister Colbert is testing you to see if you are alert!

    Sounds like he’s saying you should arm the villagers to protect themselves…and build a wall around the village.

    Don’t think he thought through the implications of his little parable.
