It’s not often we can cite pro-gun content from Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” but as The Federalist reports, host Trevor Noah probably didn’t realize he was blowing up the case for gun-free zones when he criticized a “Muslims Get Out” sign in a St. Cloud, Minn., ice cream shop.
“You know what’s also strange is this man genuinely thought people who go around blowing people up would be stopped by a sign?” Noah said. “Yeah, maybe that’s all the airports need is a sign that says ‘No Terrorists,’ yes? Yeah, and then guys are going to be walking going, ‘Oh, I was going to blow up the airport, but the rules are rules and they said I can’t come in.’”
Substitute “shooting people” for “blowing people up,” and you have exactly the case against so-called “gun-free zones”: Bad guys aren’t deterred by signs. Thank you for your support, Mr. Noah.
