Stein Colbert lands on ‘Gun Fetishist’ La La Ren Bobert after boulder shooting

Stephen Colbert opened for the first time in a long time Late show Tuesday night with a proud message about yet another mass shooting in the United States.

“Yesterday was another terrible day for America when a gunman went to a Boulder, Colorado, supermarket and killed 10 people, including a police officer,” he began. “This story is incredibly tragic and I can’t imagine the grief of these families even for a moment.” “The only proper way to honor these victims is with action,” Colbert added. “But our government continues to do nothing.”

Partly due to the shutdown of COVID-19, the country had a year full of shootings in public last week in public places, both in Atlanta and Boulder. “Obviously, the only solution to America’s gun violence is to keep us all under house arrest,” he said.

From there, Colbore turned to “speculative” responses from “gun waivers” such as the Colorado State Shooting Association, which said in a statement that “there will be time to discuss gun law.” It will be time to discuss how to prevent this. But today is not the time. ”

“why not?!” Colbert shot back. “It simply came to our notice then. And that’s what I say about what they say every time it happens. ”
