Doing Nothing is Unacceptable!!! How much longer is America going to stand by and allow legislators to do nothing?
This is the John Oliver trilogy from 2013.
This was Colbert in 2016 after the Orlando shooting.
Listen to Stephen Colbert after the Oct, 2017 event in Las Vegas.
This was just November of 2017.
A majority of Americans, including of Republicans, have supported stricter gun laws for some time. A survey conducted in October of last year found that 88 percent of respondents backed the idea that all gun purchases should require a background check. 84 percent said that private gun sales (including those at gun shows) should also depend on a background check.
A significant majority, 76 percent, supported a waiting period after a firearms purchase, and an identical proportion supported creating a national database of gun sales. Those numbers are especially remarkable when you consider that, according to a June 2017 Pew Research Center poll, 41 percent of Americans either own a gun or live with someone who does. In other words, a significant proportion of gun owners appear to support increased regulations.
But we must speak out and make our voices heard. Don’t vote to re-elect ANY Senator or House of Representative, Republican or Democrat, who doesn’t support gun control. Our future depends on it! Until we make gun control a priority, it won’t be.
