“We Don’t Actually Want Less Guns in Schools; We Want Fewer Guns in Schools”

After yet another school shooting, young and older citizens in the United States are hoping for an end to the senseless cycle of violence that is becoming more frequent. I have heard many articulate pleas for greater gun control from many people, chiefly the actual students who endured this most recent tragedy.  Their urge to those in political power to use their authority to instill real and productive change is inspiring.

One group who has been listening to these impassioned teenagers is the team at my favorite late night show, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. Over the past two weeks since the show returned from hiatus, Oliver and his crew have made a few observations on the response to the latest school shooting.

However, this topic and its obvious solution is nothing new to Oliver, who was at the center of one of the greatest recurring pieces The Daily Show with Jon Stewart ever put together when he was a correspondent on that show. Take a gander yourself to see how the same stupid argument to “protect gun rights” perpetuates the lack of protection for people:

If hearing a British man explain how Australia did it right and America is doing nothing despite that proof that things worked for Australia is exhausting, then take a quick listen to an Australian who recognizes the same flaws:

Thanks for reading and watching. Please come back next week when I can hopefully talk about Black Panther, or something.
