America’s Gun Culture Is Melting Down

America’s Gun Culture Is Melting Down


WELCOME ONE AND ALL TO THE “LATE
SHOW.” I’M YOUR HOST STEPHEN COLBERT. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
( PIANO RIFF ) YOU CAN FEEL IT. I’M GLAD YOU GUYS HAVE GOT THE
ENERGY BECAUSE YOU CAN FEEL IT TON STREET TODAY. TOOTH TODAY IS A VERY ROUGH DAY,
SO LET’S START OFF WITH SOMETHING FROM THE SMILE FILE. THANKS TO TRUMP’S TRADE WAR
WITH CHINA, THE DOW JONES INDUSTRIAL AVERAGE LOST MORE
THAN 750 POINTS TODAY. AND THAT WAS THE SMILE FILE. ( LAUGHTER )
BECAUSE IT’S ALL DOWNHILL FROM HERE. ( LAUGHTER )
I’VE BEEN WATCHING THIS SHOW ON HBO– “CHERNOBYL”– DON’T TELL
ME HOW IT ENDS. ( LAUGHTER )
AND IN THE THING ABOUT THE NUCLEAR REACTOR BLOWING UP, OVER
AND OVER AGAIN IN IT, A SCIENTIST OR ENGINEER WILL TELL
A POLITICIAN, “HEY, WE’VE GOT A REAL PROBLEM HERE. THE NUCLEAR CORE IS GOING TO
MELTDOWN AND KILL EVERYONE.Ӗ BUT THE POLITICIANS REFUSE TO
BELIEVE IT BECAUSE ANY ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF FAILURE
THREATENS THEIR POSITION OF POWER,
AND THEIR POWER IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN SAVING LIVES. WHAT’S THAT GOT TO DO WITH
ANYTHING? WELL —
( LAUGHTER ) — I THINK AT THIS POINT IT’S
CLEAR THAT AMERICA’S GUN CULTURE IS MELTING DOWN, BUT
THE REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS WOULD RATHER MAINTAIN THEIR
POWER THAN SAVE LIVES. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
THE LATEST EVIDENCE IS THE TWO MASS SHOOTINGS IN LESS THAN 24
HOURS: ONE IN EL PASO, TEXAS, THE OTHER IN DAYTON, OHIO
MAKING FOUR MASS SHOOTINGS IN AMERICA LAST WEEK ALONE. 255 IN 2019 SO FAR. NOW, THERE ARE TWO BI-PARTISAN
BACKGROUND CHECK BILLS THAT HAVE PASSED THE HOUSE BUT ARE BEING
BLOCKED BY SENATE MAJORITY LEADER AND THIS MONTH’S
CENTERFOLD OF CORRUPTIONçó MONTHLY —
( LAUGHTER ) ( APPLAUSE )
— MITCH McCONNELL. ( BOOING )
THAT IS HIS MATING CALL. ( LAUGHTER )
MCONNELL’S HAD THE BILLS SINCE FEBRUARY, BUT WON’T TAKE ANY
ACTION. I’M SURE HE HAS HIS REASONS. LIKE THE $1.26 MILLION IN N.R.A. CONTRIBUTIONS. HE HAS RECEIVED. ( BOOING )
YOU CAN’T PUT A PRICE ON HUMAN LIFE, BUT IT DOESN’T STOP MITCH
FROM TRYING. ( LAUGHTER )
AFTER EVERY ONE OF THESE TRAGEDIES — EVERY TIME THIS
HAPPENS, EVERYBODY WANTS SENSIBLE GUN LEGISLATION AND
NOTHING HAPPENS. MAYBE IT’S TIME FOR “SENSELESS”
GUN LEGISLATION. ( LAUGHTER )
MAYBE TURN IN YOUR ASSAULT WEAPON AND IN EXCHANGE WE’LL
GIVE YOU A GIANT PORK SAUSAGE.>>OKAY? ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
THAT MAKES NO SENSE. THAT IS SENSELESS. ( APPLAUSE )
GIVE ME YOUR GUN, YOU GET A GIANT PORK SAUSAGE. IT’S EVEN MORE FALK THAN YOUR
GUN AND IT’S ONLY GOING TO HURT YOU. ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) ( PIANO RIFF )
THIS TIME IT’S NOT JUST GUNS, IT’S ALSO OVERT RACISM. WHEN A REPORTER ASKED
EL PASO-NATIVE BETO O’ROURKE IF THERE WAS ANYTHING THE PRESIDENT
COULD DO ABOUT THE SHOOTINGS, HE DID NOT HESITATE TO NAME THE
RADIOACTIVE CORE OF THIS MELTDOWN.>>IS THERE ANYTHING IN
YOUR MIND THAT THE PRESIDENT CAN DO NOW TO MAKE THIS ANY BETTER?>>WHAT DO YOU THINK? UMM, YOU KNOW THE (BLEEP) HE’S
BEEN SAYING. HE’S BEEN CALLING MEXICAN
IMMIGRANTS RAPISTS AND CRIMINALS. I DONK)
THE PRESS, WHAT THE (BLEEP)? HOLD ON A SECOND.ñ
YOU KNOW, IT’S THESE– IT’S THESE QUESTIONS THAT YOU KNOW
THE ANSWERS TO. I MEAN, CONNECT THE DOTS
ABOUT WHAT HE’S BEEN DOING IN THIS COUNTRY. HE’S NOT TOLERATING RACISM, HE’S
PROMOTING RACISM. HE’S NOT TOLERATING VIOLENCE,
HE’S INCITING RACISM AND VIOLENCE IN THIS COUNTRY. SO, YOU KNOW, I DON’T KNOW WHAT
KIND OF QUESTION THAT IS.>>STEPHEN: WELL SAID. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
WELL SAID. REFRESHING CANDOR. REFRESHING CANDOR. IT’S ALL WELL AND GOOD TO OFFER
THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS, BUT SOMETIMES YOU NEED SHOUTS AND
SWEARS. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
TODAY, TRUMP PUT ON HIS PRESIDENT PANTS AND ADDRESSED
THE TRAGEDIES IN EL PASO AND DAYTON– OR TRIED TO:
>>MAY GOD BLESS THE MEMORY OF THOSE WHO PERISHED IN TOLEDO.>>Stephen: OKAY. ALL RIGHT. WRONG CITY, BUT DON’T WORRY,
SIR. IT’S NOT LIKE OHIO’S THAT
IMPORTANT IN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS. ( LAUGHTER )
JOE BIDEN BETTER HOPE IT’S NOT, BECAUSE LAST NIGHT, HE OFFERED
SYMPATHY FOR THE “TRAGIC EVENTS IN HOUSTON AND ALSO IN
MICHIGAN.” ( AUDIENCE REACTS )
HOLY TOLEDO. ( LAUGHTER )
LATER ON IN HIS ADDRESS FROM THE WHITE HOUSE, TRUMP TOOK A STRONG
STAND:ñr>>IN ONE VOICE, OUR NATION MUST
CONDEMN RACISM, BIGOTRY, AND WHITE SUPREMACY.>>STEPHEN: I TRY MY BEST EVERY
NIGHT, BUT YOU’RE STILL IN OFFICE. ( LAUGHTER )
( PIANO RIFF ) ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
SO — ( CHEERING )
SO WHO’S TO BLAME FOR THESE SHOOTINGS? TRUMP HAD A, LET’S SAY, THOUGHT:
>>WE MUST STOP THE GLORIFICATION OF VIOLENCE IN OUR
SOCIETY. THIS INCLUDES THE GRUESOMEE
AND GRISLY VIDEO GAMES THAT ARE NOW COMMONPLACE.>>STEPHEN: FIRST OF ALL,
THERE’S NO LINK BETWEEN VIDEO GAMES AND SHOOTINGS. EVERY COUNTRY HAS VIDEO GAMES. BUT THESE TRAGEDIES ONLY HAPPEN
HERE. SECONDLY, I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR
TRUMP TRY TO NAME A SINGLE VIDEO GAME. ( LAUGHTER )
(AS TRUMP) “THESE VIOLENT VIDEO GAMES:
‘TETRIS-MUNCH,’ ‘GHOST MARIO,’ ‘GRAND THEFT PONG.'”
( LAUGHTER ) THEN, IN HIS OWN WAY, TRUMP
TRIED TO HEAL A NATION.>>NOW IS THE TIME TO SET
DESTRUCTIVE PARTISANSHIP ASIDE, SO DESTRUCTIVE, AND FIND THE
COURAGE TO ANSWER HATRED WITH UNITY, DEVOTION, AND LOVE.>>STEPHEN: (AS TRUMP)
“YES, WE MUST SET ASIDE PARTISAN BICKERING OVER WHO FIRED UP THE
WHITE NATIONALISTS IN OUR COUNTRY, AND COME TOGETHER AS
ONE: (SINGING TO “KUMBAYA”)
♪ SEND HER BACK, MY LORD SEND HER BACK
♪ SOMEONE’S DIFFERENT, LORD SEND HER BACK
♪ I’M NOT RACIST LORD —
( APPLAUSE ) NOT EVERYONE WAS HEEDING TRUMP’S
CALL TO UNITY. LIKE CORY BOOKER, WHO HEARD
TRUMP’S SPEECH AND TEXTED THIS TO HIS CAMPAIGN MANAGER, WHO
THEN TWEETED IT: “LISTENING TO THE PRESIDENT. SUCH A BULL (BLEEP) SOUP OF
INEFFECTIVE WORDS.” ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
OKAY,ENING I SEE WHAT’S HAPPENING HERE. OKAY. I SEE WHAT’S HAPPENING HERE. SO BETO SWEARS, NOW EVERYONE
JUMPS ON THE CURSE WAGON. THE NEXT DEBATE IS GOING TO BE
FUN. (AS BOOKER)
“Y’KNOW, MR. VICE PRESIDENT, THEY HAVE A SAYING IN MY
COMMUNITY: YOU’RE DIPPING YOUR SPOON IN THE BULL (BLEEP) SOUP
AND YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW THE TASTE OF ASS CROUTONS!”
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) ( PIANO RIFF )
>>Jon: IS THAT A SAYING? I HAVEN’T HEARD THAT ONE.>>Stephen: TRUMP DEFENDED
GUNS ON CAMERA, BUT ON TWITTER, HE WAS MORE OPEN
TO COMPROMISE: “REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS MUST
COME TOGETHER AND GET STRONG BACKGROUND CHECKS, PERHAPS
MARRYING DOT, DOT, DOT, DOT DOT, DOT, DOT, DOT THIS
LEGISLATION WITH DESPERATELY NEEDED IMMIGRATION REFORM. WE MUST HAVE SOMETHING GOOD, IF
NOT GREAT, COME OUT OF THESE TWO TRAGIC EVENTS!”
(AS TRUMP) “AND IF I KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT
MARRYING, IT IS ALWAYS A TRAGIC EVENT.” ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) BUT LISTEN TO WHAT HE’S DOING —
( APPLAUSE ) — LISTEN TO WHAT HE’S TRYING TO
DO HERE, GUN CONTROL AND IMMIGRATION
REFORM HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH EACH OTHER, AND THEY’RE THE TWO
HARDEST THINGS TO DO IN WASHINGTON, SO NATURALLY HE
WANTS TO COMBINE THEM. (AS TRUMP)
“CONGRESS HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO EAT FIRE OR LEVITATE. ( LAUGHTER )
SO, THEY SHOULD TRY TO DO THEM BOTH AT THE SAME TIME. ( LAUGHTER )
MIGHT MAKE IT EASIER TO LEVITATE WITH FLAMES SHOOTING OUT THEIR
BUTTS.” ( LAUGHTER )
TRUMP WAS ABLE TO FIND AT LEAST ONE PERSON TO DEFEND HIM, ACTING
CHIEF OF STAFF MICK MULVANEY, SEEN HERE EXPLAINING HOW TALL A
PILE OF LIES HE’S ABOUT TO SPEW. ( LAUGHTER )
MULVANEY WENT ON THE SUNDAY SHOWS AND HE POINTED OUT THAT
GUN VIOLENCE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GUNS.>>WE’VE HAD GUNS IN THIS
COUNTRY FOR– FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS. WE HAVEN’T HAD THIS UNTIL
RECENTLY AND WE NEED TO FIGURE OUT WHY.>>STEPHEN: OH, I KNOW WHY. IT’S BECAUSE THOSE GUNS WE HAD
HUNDREDS OF YEARS AGO WERE SLOWER AND LESS POWERFUL. IT’S WHY, DURING THE
REVOLUTIONARY WAR, THE BRITISH SOLDIERS VOLUNTEERED TO WEAR
BRIGHT RED COATS AND STAND IN A STRAIGHT LINE! (AS COLONIAL BRITISH SOLDIER)
“WOULD YOU MIND KILLING US MORE QUICKLY? IT’S NEARLY TEA TIME AND WE HAVE
TO DO THIS ALL OVER AGAIN IN THE CRIMEA.” ( LAUGHTER )
>>Jon: WOW!>>Stephen: THE CRIMEA! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
MULVANEY’S MAIN ARGUMENT: EVERYONE IS TO BLAME EXCEPT HIS
BOSS.>>THIS IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM. THERE’S NO QUESTION ABOUT IT. BUT THEY ARE SICK, SICK PEOPLE. AND THE PRESIDENT KNOWS THAT. AGAIN, JON, I DON’T THINK IT’S
FAIR TO TRY AND LAY THIS AT THE FEET OF THE PRESIDENT.>>STEPHEN: IT’S TRUE. YOU CAN’T LAY THIS AT THE FEET
OF THE PRESIDENT, ‘CAUSE THAT’S WHERE MICK MULVANEY SLEEPS. ( LAUGHTER )
( PIANO RIFF ) WE’VE GOT A GREAT SHOW FOR YOU
TONIGHT. STAR OF HBO’S “SUCCESSION” BRIAN
COX IS HERE, BUT WHEN WE RETURN, ANOTHER TRUMP APPOINTMENT BITESt
THE DUST. STICK AROUND. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
( BAND PLAYING )

  1. They won’t take our guns because they know it will be from the dead hands of millions unwilling to give up there arms, it’s gonna cause the violence you are trying to avoid.

  2. Social jackass…One of the biggest sell out, pieces of shit (other than Mr. Rachel Maddow) who unfortunately is paid to promote a pre-school level, anti American agenda! He’s as funny hemorrhoid in an ass kicking contest and as ignorant and moronic as a drag queen going to an ob for a Pap smear….! I’m so sick of these schmucks destroying our country by promoting liberal destructive bullshit! Anyone seen SanFran, Portland, LA or Baltimore lately?!!!!

  3. There is already gun control people.

    You are calling for innocent responsible americans to be disarmed.

    Most of you dont even live in the US.

    Most mass shootings/active shooting involves an illegal black market mod or gun.

    Imo if you never shot a gun you cant call for control sorrynotsorry

    Most of you have no idea what the hell you are talking about.

  4. Saying guns have nothing to do with gun deaths is like saying water has nothing to do with drowning. And to prevent any more drownings we should provide more water. But I still hear the idiot apologists cry – oh right so are you saying we should ban water? Answer; to ask that question validates how stupid you are to believe guns aren't responsible for gun deaths. So let me spell out the difference. Guns are designed only to kill – that's the only reason they exist and water is there for the exact opposite, to sustain all life. Do we need water – yes, do we NEED guns. No! The utter stupidity of American's ridiculous gun worship is gobsmackinly absurd.

  5. I wish Beto was better known, he'd make a fine president. Why do we keep electing people who should be retired and playing with their great-grand kids?

  6. Here in the UK we have very little gun crime, want to know why? Because we dont have ridiculous fun laws that allow that to happen. You can own a firearm but the background checks are immense and the ammunition has to be kept at a military base to my knowledge

  7. All the billions in military could go to law enforcement and fix the gang violence and shootings easily.

    But he’s right too much power will be lost.

  8. Yeah I don't like guns anymore but it did STOP an attempted home invasion and a guy stealing my car battery. I didn't use my gun I just "racked a round" into it.

  9. GOP sealed their fate by blaming mass shooting on video games since the 90s. Keep it up. Them old folks and baby-boomers will eventually go and leave this place in the hands of those video game playing kids who will remember that it was video games to blame and not the NRA. Let's see how that works out in another 10 years. I'm so happy I'll be alive long enough to see the end of GOP.

  10. Whenever the government decides to make something illegal, which communities are affected most with high incarceration? War on Drugs ring a bell?

  11. We have a gun problem and a bullshit problem in the United States. Let me start by saying I am a gun owner. I have been since I was 6. I’ve had jobs that required me to carry a weapon. I’ve been shot at more than once. I’ve disarmed people who were trying to kill me. This isn’t coming from someone who doesn’t understand guns. It’s precisely because I do understand them that I’m going to call out the bullshit that stops us from having the reforms to gun laws that we needed years ago. If you want to debate any of the points below, I have no problem. These are simple facts.

    1) I need an assault rifle for home defense. No, you don’t. A short barreled shotgun is the best tool for home defense. And that only counts if you’re insanely proficient with it and you get incredibly lucky. The likelihood you will get the chance to use it is next to zero. If you do, you’re very likely to kill a member of your family accidentally. In a REAL altercation, you don’t get to choose your field of fire. It happens incredibly fast, usually in the dark. If you’re popping off with a rifle, you are going to hit things you don’t intend to. Guns are tools. Period. Assault Rifles are intended to be used on a battlefield. Battlefield tactics don’t work in your house. It’s a bullshit argument.

    2) I need to protect myself from a tyrannical Government… Holy Shit that’s stupid. That idea was from a time when the state of war was much more level. It isn’t now. At all. If an armored transport shows up on your front lawn with a 50 cal on the roof, you and your AK are fucking toast. Soldiers train, and their weapons are an extension of their body. You will instantly lose. And before you bring up guerrilla fighters in Afghanistan or Iraq… you need a reality check. Those people were born in a country that was at war, on their soil, for their entire lives. You don’t compare to that on your best day. And they die in FAR greater numbers than they kill.

    3) Gun registration, background checks, etc are a slippery slope to confiscation. Bullshit. We register cars. We have to prove proficiency to operate them. We are required to have insurance in the event we cause damage with them. It’s been that way for decades, and no one is “coming to take your car”. Making sure people have the barest minimum of responsibility doesn’t lead to loss. Fear of loss leads to fundraising and bullshit. It’s not rational.

    4) My gun is a right that can’t be modified. Again, utter bullshit. You can’t own a howitzer unless the barrel is full of concrete. You can’t own a cannon manufactured in the last century. You can’t own a fully automatic weapon without a FFL. That’s why those things are rarely used in crimes. And all of that is based on an amendment to our constitution that can be changed if we as a country see fit to do so. We have changed amendments before and we will again. If you don’t understand that you need a history lesson and a dictionary.

    Creating common sense laws that put speed bumps in the way of lunatics helps. Every time. Automobile licenses, speed limits, etc don’t end accidents, but they make them less frequent and less deadly. It’s a proven concept. The time for bullshit excuses is over. It’s time to step up and take responsibility. Fuck this stupidity.

  12. We are all disgusted with this. I don’t like guns or the NRA either. What is your suggestion we do about it other then ridicule politicians or groups you don’t like. Yet you praised Jimmy Carter who no one liked. Up there with GW as the worst modern US president. Here’s my idea. Don’t publicize the shooter’s name. Punish their families. Do something supremely in humane to the killer like flushing them down a toilet, use your imagination. 2nd Amendment is bs you’re right. The bayonet had more killing power than the gun when that was created.

  13. I'm so sick of the media repeating this "Trump is a racist because he called all Mexicans rapists and criminals" BS.
    He didn't. He said SOME were.
    Remember when we had the big caravan from south America? Remember all the major news outlets sayin that 1 in 5 women in the caravan were being raped or sexually assaulted?
    Who was doing the raping? Either some men in the caravan, or some men in Mexico.
    The fact is, people are people. There are criminals and rapists here, and guess what? There ARE rapists and criminals in Mexico.
    THATS what the president was saying, Beto O'Dork. And either you know that, and are just playing politics (which is what I think), or you're a moron. Same goes for you Colbert, and all the rabid left lapdogs at MSNBC.

  14. Gun mentality melt down? Now days I don't go anywhere without a firearm. Walmart or the movies I am packing. Only thing that is going to stop these shootings is return fire. After a couple of shooters go down in flames the rest will get the picture and find another hobby.

  15. They take two or more ideas that have nothing to do with each other and put them in bills or tag them onto them all the time… it’s pretty ridiculous….

  16. What do y’all think the founding fathers would say in today’s age of tyranny? I bet George Washington woulda gotten the boys together and stormed the wh soon as they saw and I would join them

  17. candy crush is more violent than call of duty – all those moms are playing candy crush on their cell phones while driving. fml

  18. Gamers: Trump says it's all your fault!!

    Time to give up that neo-fascist alt-right, misogyny, racism, transphobic fake scepticism and come to the red side!

    Just admit you got conned by the most transparent grifter since Jordon Peterscum.

  19. Still, Sony let liberals take all the guns.

    Militia.

    Not PERSONAL ownership

    NOT disarmed.

    Slaves are slaves because they have not enough force to emancipated themselves.

  20. Let’s all stand with the students until all NRA and all weapons manufacturer money is forever out of buying off our democracy (among other changes)! As long as our system allows our politicians to personally profit from every gun sold and every bomb sold or dropped, mass shootings, terrorism & wars & will be inevitable. #getALLmoneyOut

  21. One of my biggest concerns: What if these old men all die before we can sentence them to life sentences and everyday prison rape?

  22. As long as no politician relatives or other big shot become a victim of mass shooting, they will never care…do you know another way to make politician care about this problem? When mass shooting happen near election, I guarantee they will "care".

  23. That analogy of power and politics could be used for every problem we have right now. Global warming, gun control, migrants at the border. Seriously throw a dart.

  24. Why are these senators allowed to block bills in favour of corrupt contributions from lobbying interests…these senators should be immediately arrested and tried for corruption and treason and then shot in the face…😂

  25. I’m starting to think Trump has doomed America and it’s future…the country has gotten completely out of control and off the rails….Anarchy is coming soon

  26. Colbert’s lowkey anger at this whole situation sums up Democrats feelings in a situation they can’t help. We have to keep doing our jobs while watching the boss undermine everything we do.

  27. And did you see Rachael talk about the CEO of the NRA and him going to a elite store in Beverly Hills I think and spending $39,000.00 on suits in one day? And he and his wife took a trip to the Bahamas and spent $200,000.00 at a place that has pink sand? And his driver was paid $18,000.00. And it goes on and on. The private planes, all their clothes and her personal hair stylist and make-up artist who travels with her and all of it is paid by the NRA! And there is a ten million dollars home they were thinking of charging to the NRA but she thought the men's dressing room might be too small. You have to see it! Of course she's younger than him. I wonder if he traded his old wife who bore his children for a younger model? Could be wrong there. And the list goes on. And you see these desperate sounding ads for money and a lot of it is going to their employees. Brother. 🙁 Just like the Red Cross. What will happen if Trump never pays El Paso anything? ? When he was running for President he was furious because for his reputation he was forced to pay off the students of Trump University who sued him but there are still over 4,700 lawsuits waiting for him. I love the thought. You know when he's put in prison I think it will be a relief for him. No more Chinese red ties and cheating at golf. And running his golf cart up on the green. He is the laziest thing coming to work at 11am and watching TV for six or seven hours a day. And we STILL don't have Ambassadors in many countries. I guess he doesn't have time sitting there watching Fox and Friends and Hogan's Heroes. That's after he's gotten his hair done for an hour. I'm going to enjoy seeing him kicked out of a golf course when he tries to drive on their greens and when in prison he's not going to be able to have his long hair styled. Time magazine will definitely put him on the cover then! lol Songs

  28. That man they call the President enhales and holds his breath whilst speaking. Watch his breathing pattern.👀😳

  29. Stephen Colbert you are brilliant everything you said you were on point. Trump is pathetic to the Core.

  30. If a man lives ANYWHERE other than a metropolis, a gun may be his only defense. You can't keep guns from going from Kansas to New York. This is the problem.

  31. Well if all these rich guys are so worried about racism, why not get on the save the human race ism campaign. All any one has to do is donate enough money and influence local legislators to start ending homelessness and once we can accomplish that, I'm sure the immigrants will have no problem finding food and housing. The norm is now to donate enough to build 10-30 tiny houses. The homeless people can do the building and they don't need to eat, so it won't cost a penney for food and labor. BOOM…And then the relgious institutions would be more than willing to donate the rest, like mental healthcare and finding them jobs. They already started doing it, but now we need just a tiny fraction of the rich ones wealth. They won't even feel it. So the homeless can be saved setting a precedent for saving the human race. How bout it guys?

  32. Let's just see who can answer that and if they can, than maybe we'll consider letting them use the word "dickish" and cuntlyness. Bet they never would consider even LOOKING at those bad words cause they would defernilly go to hell fer shure

  33. Not fer nutin, but are you broadcasting this week? Did you get kicked off of uTube? Are you in training for your new bosses? What?????

  34. The only thing that’s melting down around here is the heavy barrel on my AR15. Come and take it, better yet send a gooberment lackey, coward.

  35. No one needs an assault rifle that can shoot through a fucking car for self defense in their home or even worse an apartment. It is an unconscionably murderous disregard for collateral damage and tramples all over our rights for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

  36. They say we've had guns for a long time, but that's not really true. Until 2010 the US had handgun bans in a lot of states, there was no personal right to bear arms that was agreed upon, and it was much, much harder to buy an unregistered weapon. Once more: The 2nd amendment wasn't a right nationwide until 2010. Before then individual states were free to ban whatever guns they wanted, and only in 2008 did the supreme court case change the interpretation of that amendment from a collective right to an individual right in places where federal law applied.

    This understanding is BRAND SPANKING NEW, and expanding this new understanding to overrule state laws is even more recent. See: McDonald v. Chicago (2010) DC v. Heller (2008)

  37. Every time Stephen Colbert is off and it's a rerun Trump does something ridiculous like declaring himself to be God

  38. Its because they been living off our taxes, get healthcate and benefits for life . They dont wanna give that up . When their voters are going without! .

  39. America, it’s now been almost 3 weeks since these shootings have happened. And what has been done? Nothing.

    You have free speech, you have a democracy, fucking get out there and make changes happen. Join protests, demand change, educate your children and fellow humans on gun safety.

    Look at Hong Kong, they have a very serious problem which they are not letting the world stop thinking about, they have been protesting for 11 weeks…

  40. Cant believe people laugh and applaud this idiot. Want our guns , come try and take them. Beta males like him will never be taken seriously

  41. Colbert, o rouke, everything they say and stand for has done nothing but grow gun gun culture. More of us are armed and ready now than ever before.

  42. Thank you for calling out the video game BS. Literally millions of people play "violent" video games (and very violent TV and Movies) and we don't kill people.

  43. Stephen Colbert works for the Globalists, One World Government Elites, and that is why he wants guns banned. For the communist to take over, they first must unarmed the population. By you people supporting Stephen Colbert, you helping America transfer into a new country.
    1. Communist. 2. Luciferian. 3. A chip planted in all of us and under the control of the banks.
    (Funny how the Christian Bible warned us about this)

  44. American's need to look at things from a more statistical perspective in order to find a remedy for this situation. Someone could easily cause much more destruction and heartbreak with a gallon of gasoline and a match. I know it is horrible to read about this kind of behavior in America and it is only getting worse, but there are much more pressing matters at hand in the world right now. Just the fact that gun control has become a political counter-measure instead of serious problem blows my mind. These politics don't give a shit about a bunch of kids getting shot in a school they only care if the media reports them feeling "sad" they don't give a fuck about you America.
    Guns and ammo are one of our economic staples that's what America does well we make guns and sell them to everyone foreign and domestic, been doing it for years… hell that's how we have toppled dictatorships, but if you think taking guns away from people is going to solve the overflow of hate in our country right now well then I guess we are all screwed anyways.

  45. By the way. How does Stephen Colbert feel now about his sweetheart CBS,
    now that they are calling one of the MAIN DONORS of the NRA, of Climate
    Change Denial, of Segregationism and MULTIPLE GENOCIDE against black
    communities, by dumping gigatons of toxic waste in their back yard, how
    does Stephen feel about CBS now PRAISING the BEAST IN THE FLESH as a P H
    I L A N T R O P I S T?
    Instead Stephen would rather throw a jewish carpenter under the bus…

  46. America is like a stubborn teenager that doesn't learn from its mistakes. Its not the peoples fault its those crusty old ass-holes in congress that just don't seem to give a shit. I wonder if their sons and daughters, wife's and husbands got slain in the streets they would actually realise that guns do indeed kill people. Most other countries, even third world ones understand this basic concept!

  47. thank you so much America for showing us what democracy is…
    you voted in an old sick solipsistic sexist, xenophobic, racist, lying conman who thought he was getting to play with a 4 piece jigsaw… turned out to be a 10,000 piece jigsaw.
    didnt you look into his character before you voted… the clues were there … SHAME ON YOU.

    BEING RICH IS NOT QUALIFICATION ENOUGH TO RUN THE COUNTRY… not even his money, the bank's !!
