Colbert Is Worried About Obama's Nonexistent War On Guns


"The fear of not being able to buy guns has led to buying so many guns that now we can't buy any guns, just like we feared," Colbert said. Is Colbert just being irrational? "It's happened before," he assured. "In 2008, when people bought guns before Obama took office, because they knew he'd pass harsh gun regulations, which he didn't."

It's part of a giant Obama conspiracy, Colbert said. "The total lack of evidence is all the evidence I need."
