The Gun Problem

Australian comedian Jim Jefferies uses humor to point out why US gun laws are crazy. Being from Australia, which suffered the worst mass shooting in the world before they decided to pass strict gun laws to prevent future tragedies, gives him a good perspective on what the rest of the world must think of all the gun violence here.

I also commend him for taking a subject (gun deaths) that is not the least bit funny and using humor to point out how ridiculous we are.

This video is an excerpt from his Netflix special. It is from 2014, but of course nothing has changed since then (actually it has gotten worse):

Alternatively, you might want to watch the whole thing (I did!), which is split into two videos: Part 1, Part 2.

    Here’s an interesting article: “How to work on gun violence without violating the Second Amendment”. The answer is to let the ATF do its job using existing laws.
