‘Saturday Night Live’ Takes On Gun Control
Saturday Night Livet took on the biggest fight in Washington on Saturday night by looking down the barrel of gun control. With their usual humorous flair, they made both sides of the issues seem a little over the top.
Jay Pharoah‘s President Obama, tells the audience that a bi-partisan team has helped forge a gun control agenda. Then, Bill Hader and Jason Sudeikis, acting as U.S. Senators give us the details of the legislation, which in reality in nothing gets accomplished. Neither side of the political arena is really brave enough to make any significant changes, so the new laws turn out to be the biggest joke. It turns out that the new bill requires those purchasing a gun to answer the question “Are you a good person?” The joke is too close to the truth.
