Amy Schumer gets to the truth (hilariously) of how our lives would look if the NRA had its way.
Amy Schumer has been vocal both in her comedy and in real life about guns.
In August, she took the mic with her cousin, Sen. Chuck Schumer, to talk about the importance of gun law reform after a gunman opened fire at a showing of her movie “Trainwreck.”
And she seized the opportunity over the weekend, while hosting Saturday Night Live, to turn out a brilliant sketch that captures the absolute absurdity of making guns such a central part of American life.
What is life without guns?
She starts with the notion that a life without guns just seems to be missing something, and that the universal thing that unites everybody is their fervor for firearms.
It’s a glimpse at the world the NRA would have us living in if it could ramp up America’s gun-obsessive culture even more than it already does.
