Trevor Noah, the host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, and a member of the Cult of Gun Control made a very strong argument against gun free zones recently. Sean Davis at The Federalist catches the priceless moment when a Liberal speaks some real truth without ever realizing it
Trevor Noah, the host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, accidentally destroyed the case for gun control during his show on Wednesday night.
Noah’s accidental broadside against gun-free zones came during a portion of his opening monologue in which he made fun of a Minnesota man fed up with Islamic terrorism. The target of Noah’s ire was an ice cream shop owner in a small town southeast of St. Cloud, Minnesota — the site of a mass stabbing at a mall last weekend — who put up a sign outside of his restaurant that read, “Muslims Get Out.”
Noah mocked the store owner for a little bit, but then he moved on to the meat of his opening bitby mocking the man’s rationale for his “Muslims Get Out” sign:
You know what’s also strange is this man genuinely thought people who go around blowing people up would be stopped by a sign? You realize you’re talking to terrorists, not vampires. They don’t need to be invited in, alright? Or maybe he’s onto something, because if you think about it, we’ve never tried that. We’ve never actually tried to repel terrorists with signs. Yeah, maybe that’s all the airports need is a sign that says “No Terrorists,” yes? Yeah, and then guys are going to be walking going, “Oh, I was going to blow up the airport, but the rules are rules and they said I can’t come in. They said I can’t. They said I can’t come in.”
Great points. Signs do not, in fact stop evil people. Yet, Noah supports gun control laws that, well are full of equally useless measures like signs reading “gun free zone”. Hopefully Noah will stop and think about his own words. OK that is sadly doubtful, people of the Left, as Noah is, react emotionally not thoughtfully. Deeper meanings or lessons escape them. Wisdom? Not for them. Sean Davis makes this final point that will no doubt escape Trevor Noah. The entire premise of gun control is based on words, on paper preventing bad people from committing bad acts
The entire premise of gun control is that words on a piece of paper somewhere will prevent a terrorist from killing people. What is a law if not a sign that says what you’re allowed and not allowed to do? Yet time and time and time and time again, strict gun control regimes have completely failed to prevent mass murderers from committing mass murder. Chicago and Washington, D.C., have some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation, yet those laws have done little to stem the tide of gun crime in those cities.
