During a big push for gun control on Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update, host Colin Jost said that pro-Second Amendment Republicans “look like they’re running for president of ISIS.”
Jost also claimed that Republicans love “guns more than people you don’t know.”
The segment began with Jost discussing Joe Biden’s call for universal background checks for gun purchases. He asserted that people who do not have a lot of friends or relatives should not be able to protect themselves.
“And background checks are a great start, but shouldn’t we also do current checks?” Jost ponders. “How about this: If you want a gun, the gun store has to talk to at least five people from your life who agree it’s a good idea for you to have a gun. It’s not really that much to ask.”
Jost added, “you’ve got to list three references on an application to work at Foot Locker.”
The host next took aim at Reps. Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor-Greene and Madison Cawthorne.
“And Republicans, please stop pretending this is a Second Amendment issue and just admit you love guns more than people you don’t know. These are your political ads; look at them,” Jost said, with a photo collage of the lawmakers with guns.
“You look like you’re running for president of ISIS. If you actually cared about the Second Amendment, you’d also care about the well-regulated militias part. And I don’t know if you noticed when they almost hung you two months ago, but our militias aren’t super well-regulated,” Jost continues.
