Watch Stephen Colbert Talks Gun Control [VIDEO]

Stephen Colbert told the audience β€œWe all have jobs to do,” β€œI’m doing my job right now and I’ve got these cameras here to prove it. After the attacks in Orlando, I thought, maybe the government might do their job and pass any kind of law. Even a fig leaf to justify their existence.”

β€œThey couldn’t even agree to keep people on the terror watch list from buying high-powered assault rifles,” Colbert blasted. β€œI don’t understand you, Senate. Ninety-two percent of Americans want you to expand background checks for gun buyers and you just ignore them! Since when does 8 percent of the population get to have total control over an issue? That’s like taking your entire family on a cross-country car trip and letting grandma choose all the music!”

β€œHey, Senate, my dog accomplished more than you this week when it rolled over and licked its nuts,” Colbert said, with a beat-track playing behind him.

β€œHey, Senate, I’ve seen bugs trapped in amber move faster than you!” he continued. β€œYou guys think the terrorist watch list is when you put β€˜Homeland’ on your Netflix que. You might as well ask the gun lobby to check for a hernia as long as they’ve got your balls in their hands. Senate, you couldn’t pass a bill if it was coated in Ex-Lax. But if you ever did pass a bill it would say, β€˜Be it resolved, no kissing and the NRA should just leave the money on the dresser.”
