Jordan Klepper Destroys GOP Bill That Sells 'Good Guy With A Gun' Myth




 

Jordan Klepper of Comedy Central's "The Opposition" isn't afraid to shoot down iffy gun legislation.

On Monday's show, the satire-armed host took aim at a GOP bill that would allow gun owners to carry concealed weapons across state lines with a permit. The proposal, backed by the National Rifle Association, has a friendly name, Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act. But basically, Klepper said, it would enable some people with violent records like domestic abusers to carry their concealed weapons in states with stricter gun laws as long as it's legal for them to do so in the state from where they came.

Noting that "a domestic abuser is not a good guy with a gun," Klepper quipped of the legislation:

"It lowers the bar across the country so that every state has to abide by the loosest conceal carry laws. Americans love lowering the bar. It's so much easier getting over it that way."
