Jon Stewart on mission-creep at the NRA’s annual convention (video)

A particularly good Jon Stewart episode on the NRA’s annual convention, which was as nutty and extremist as ever.

“Stop pretending that background checks are the last barrier standing between a free America and Obama-sponsored government mom-rape.”

NRA-convention

Stewart made an excellent point about Wayne LaPierre’s “the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” LaPierre says everyone needs to have a gun to stop the government. But then says that the government catching the Boston Marathon bombing suspects shows the value of guns. So, the government is the bad guy with a gun and the good guy with a gun.

This really is one of the better Jon Stewart rants. Watch it.
