SNL‘s Weekend Update Pushes For Gun Control: ‘This Shouldn’t Be a Partisan Issue’

SNL Weekend Update anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che made a push for gun control in the wake of the Las Vegas massacre.

“The investigation into the tragedy in Las Vegas this week has sparked a larger debate in America between people who want common sense gun control and people who are wrong,” Jost began. “This shouldn’t be a partisan issue. The guy had 47 guns. No one should own 47 of anything. If you own 47 cats, you are not a responsible pet owner, you’re a crazy cat lady. And unlike with guns, the government will actually come and take your cats away, because everyone agrees that’s insane.”

“Why is it so hard to get gun control in this country?” Che asked. “I mean, who are these delicate snowflakes that we can’t just tell them, ‘No, you are not allowed to have 40 guns anymore, Earl. From now on you can have one gun, max, and six bullets.’ If you can’t hit what you’re shooting for you in six shots, then your ass need to learn karate or use your words.”

Che noted that only 3% of gun owners 50% of guns in the country.

“That’s the problem; the 3% the country that needs to feel secure all the time,” Che continued. “That’s why I think we should do a buy-back program. For every gun you trade in, we give you one half inch of penis enlargement.”

Che said he “knows” about the Second Amendment, but mocked gun advocates for praise law enforcement and support the troops while they have a “closet full of weapons” because those same troops might “drive their house away.”

“It’s hypocritical!” Che exclaimed. “That’s like saying, ‘I love my wife, I trust my wife, but that sneaky b**ch is coming for me.'”
