Jon Stewart looks at the failure of background check legislation in the US Senate by having Jon Oliver look at effective gun control in Australia.
Of course, the gun advocate says Australia isn’t the “real world” and is akin to “going to Planet X.” Of course, Oliver got the gun nut to shut up when the gun nut said laws don’t work, look at the war on drugs. So Oliver replied, so we shouldn’t have any laws restricting drugs because drug laws don’t work? Gun nut was speechless.
Oliver, incredibly, got to sit down with the Australian Prime Minister who got gun control passed in Australia.
It’s a good episode.
