The Daily Show Calls Out Scapegoat Artists In The Gun Control Debate

Ever since the awful Sandy Hook Shootings happened, there have been attempts — some earnest, some misguided — to link the deaths there to violent video games. And, yes, there is a conversation to be had about the way that pop culture glorifies violence and displays of power.

But, as Jon Stewart points out in this stinging and funny Daily Show clip, any talk about games, movies or TV should be proportional to discussions about how to regulate the weapons directly responsible for people’s deaths. Scapegoating doesn’t offer up any solutions for a serious problem, whether it’s Kindergarten Killer or the other games named by NRA spokesperson Wayne LaPierre or the Daily Show’s made-up Call of Dike-y. The latter, at least, is meant to be laughed at.
