Full Episode

Cutting through the political bullshit on gun control. And General McChrystal talks about Afghanistan and the role of the soldier as rebuilder.

A friend sent me a petition to tell Obama to NOT TAKE OUR GUNS. Seriously, you are barking up the wrong tree, honey. Keep your hunting rifle or your pistol for personal protection. But I want assault weapons and 100-round magazines banned.

And before anyone starts with the pro-gun talking points, I dare you to watch this show to see Stewart's comments on said talking points.

I thought he made some pretty good points as usual. He was definitely more coherent than Alex Jones debating Piers Morgan.

I could not have kept a straight face as Alex Jones screamed at me, any more than I could with some virulent homophobe. Which has the potential to get me killed, or at least smacked around, I suppose, but it's so ridiculous, I don't think I could help myself.

Automatic weapons are already banned.

Totally agree. There is no (reasonable) reason why civilians should own weapons made for the military.

Yes, it's ridiculous to think Obama is coming for ALL THE GUNS. Everybody is fear-mongering.
