Samantha Bee gives impassioned plea for gun control with help from a gospel choir

“Thank God there was a good guy nearby, but Devin Kelley still shot nearly every person in that church.
In our country today, a lot more good guys are getting stopped by guns—not to mention good women, good children, good grandparents, good teachers, good country fans, and good Christians.
We’ll never eliminate gun violence from our society but there are practical steps we can take to slow it down. We just need Congress to step up.
America appreciates your thoughts and prayers, but we need more than that. So, while you all are praying for God’s help, all we can do is pray for yours.”

Trevor Noah reacts to Orlando shooting, questions gun rights with shoelace analogy

“I could’ve said, ‘Mom, why are you bringing shoelaces into this conversation? Why are you blaming the shoelaces for something the sidewalk did to my knees? Who even says there’s a connection between anti-shoelaces and falling anyway? You’re violating my right to keep my shoelaces untied!’ I didn’t say that… I realized after falling, after falling a lot, that there was a connection between leaving my shoelaces untied and getting hurt.”
