Jon Stewart on Tuesday took a deep look at the gun control debate in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., massacre, focusing on those on the right who say banning guns won’t reduce violence. “What’s really going on here?” Stewart wondered.After seeing radio shock jock Alex Jones’ recent rant against CNN’s Piers Morgan, Stewart said he finally gets it: some Americans are afraid the government will come after their guns.

“Now I see what’s happening,” Stewart said. “So this is what it is. Their paranoid fear of a possible dystopic future prevents us from addressing our actual dystopic present.”
