Gun Control vs. Porn Control: Florida Takes On the Wrong Kind of Mass Shooting: The Daily Show


The Parkland teenagers are committed
to fighting gun violence. In fact, they are so committed
that, yesterday, they did something
no rational person would do– they took a bus to Tallahassee. I know. Crazy. But it was for a good reason. They were lobbying the Florida
House of Representatives for a ban on assault weapons. And because it’s Florida, you can guess how that went. REPORTER: As the students
arrived at the Florida capital, the Florida legislature showed
just how tough changing those laws
is going to be, voting
to not even take up debate on an assault weapons ban. WOMAN:
36 yeas, 71 nays, Mr. Speaker. So the motion is not adopted. Shame. Are you serious? These kids drove all the way
to Tallahassee, and you won’t even debate
gun control. Like, maybe it’s just me,
but, where I’m from, when someone comes to your house
asking for help, you don’t turn them away.
You do the right thing. You turn off the lights and
pretend you’re not home, okay? Yeah. It’s called an African hello. Seriously, that’s pretty shitty,
what they did. But-but don’t get angry.
Don’t get angry. ‘Cause you’re gonna need
that anger for when you find out what they did pass
less than an hour later. Pornography is being declared
as a health risk, at least it is here
in the state of Florida. The state house
of representatives approved a resolution for this yesterday. The goal, they say,
is to protect Floridians, especially teenagers,
from any kind of adult content. Wow, guys. Porn control
instead of gun control. Yeah, I think
you guys are worried about the wrong kind
of mass shooting. (laughter, gasping) -And…
-(applause) and, listen, I know it’s easy for politicians
to go after porn. You know? It doesn’t have
the power the gun lobby does. Like, there’s no NRA for porn
going, “You can take my porn
when you pry it from my warm,
lotion-filled hands!” But, still, come on,
have some common sense! Your state is reeling
from a shooting. Now is not the time
to debate adult films. In fact, just ask
Florida state representative Carlos Guillermo Smith. He was furious that the house
was choosing to focus on protecting kids from porn
instead of from guns. I’m curious as to
the prioritization of this bill and how urgent
of an issue this is. Has anyone ever been
physically handicapped, like, for example, confined to
a wheelchair and unable to work, as a result of porn
being such a major health risk? Okay, uh, I hear
what he’s saying, but I mean, if the porn is good, then maybe
you will end up in a wheelchair. (laughter) I mean, here’s me
after I got broadband. But that’s all I’m saying. (laughter) It’s just… But I’m sorry.
I’m sorry. I’m sorry, Representative.
I’m-I’m sorry. I was rude. I was rude.
What-what were you saying? Has any first responder
ever needed to seek counseling for PTSD–
post-traumatic stress disorder– as a result of maybe their maybe
addiction to pornography? Uh, again, I’m on your side. (laughter) But have you seen
“2 Girls 1 Cup”? Uh, you want to talk about PTSD? I still can’t look
at frozen yogurt without getting a hard-on. (laughter, groaning) But, still, despite all reason,
despite all reason, the day ended with the
Florida House basically saying that it thinks guns are safer
than sex on camera. And you could choose
to be mad about that, but I prefer to be excited about how this new thinking
will change porn in Florida. (doorbell rings) Did somebody here order
a big, hard gun? It couldn’t have been me. I’m already packin’. -Oh.
-Oh, yeah. -♪ ♪
-Ooh. Oh. Oh, yeah. ♪ ♪ (laughter) (laughter) MAN:
Oh, yeah. Welcome to the new world.

  1. Porn is not a healthrisk if you give the kids proper sex-education.
    If they learn that outrageous things online are not always real/pleasurable, then you have what you wanted, you warned them.
    It's almost like America wánts this all to go wrong as much as possible.

  2. You guys banned Kinder Surprise because one kid choked on it and won't even ban the number 1 killer in your country??

  3. this is dumb, you could make a rock sling, train with it till your good and just sling lead from roofs, 150 yards is doable by any man and if you are sling lead into a crowd you will maim… ban string and stones and fishing lures! you cannot build up the kind of sick fantasies of modern rapists and pedos have without porn. thats a fact.

  4. I don't think the porn bill is bad, especially with porn being a contributor to sex trafficking, but with that being said, not even debating gun control is ridiculous

  5. I'm proud Trevor is living his truth and has come out of the closet. You're a great representative of the gay community.

  6. is it just me or does the guy in the 2×2 pictures of the students in the beginning of the video in the bottom right look like Klay Thompson

  7. This was one weird episode but I can’t believe adults are actually prioritizing porn safety over gun safety. That’s fucked up. Even for florida

  8. What the fuck Florida? This is one of those stories that sounds too dumb to be real but no this is actually what our world has come to.

  9. You can't ban what is already banned lol. The assault weapons ban was enacted in 1980's. You wanna ban semi autos, I hope you disarm the police as well.

  10. All living being have sex. Sex and even pornagraphic paintings have been around before guns. You can't kill a crowd of people with porn.

  11. Sorry I can't agree with you this time Trevor there is a huge problem with people (kids) all kinds of people getting taken into the slave trade (child pornography industry), taking peoples right to defend there Homeland is always a bad idea. Tyranny is a nasty beast and very real.

  12. Man,once Florida is in the title nothing is normal. Guns are less dangerous than porn now, especially to teens.

  13. People Not banning ASSAULT weaponds are the ones to blame ! …we should all carry assault weoponds untill they ban them , see if they feel safe .

  14. How the fuck has Florida never heard of parent control but gun control at the very least in the hands of criminals arrested for murder or rape or assault Florida you have your priorities way the fuck off and i would love some to literally try and defend this make my day Trumptarded state

  15. I love opening the door telling dumb people to piss off then slamming it in their face. Those kids really dont understand the main reason we have the second ammendment. People steal full auto weapons from cop cars to sell to gang members and drug dealers. You think they care about that your dumb little ideas are worth anyones time? Not mine. I'll use what I want to defend myself while you get fucked with bullets.

  16. Wow. They really sent a strong message to those kids , who just watched 17 of their teenage friends in a mass shooting at school . . . And these law makers said to them and every other child in Florida ….. That they don't give a ah*t about any kids lives . a $5.00 bill is worth more than their pathetic lives ..and don't bother us again you worthless bats …. We have porn to talk about

  17. Gun Control is not happening in the US! Every President has been bought – I mean eve – by the weapon lobby. All in one …just puppets doing what they are told…or else

  18. The truth is all the abt the profit made from weapons sales and the taxes collected so by all mean USA will never ban weapons sales…

  19. Hh…
    Me : bangbros or al-kaida
    Government: al-kaida
    Me: drops viagra…
    Me: buys a rifle
    Me: imma be shooting who i been sexing with

  20. Go check out deadliest school massacres list in Wikipedia where most of the massacres were in USA, thats a shame

  21. 2 girls one cup is really strong stuff, even me, a Chinese, with the great fire wall isolating, watched it decades ago. And got a PTSD from it, having a hard on just by typing the words.😂

  22. so they r more in danger from porn then they r from guns so one kid jerks him self off and 10 other kids get hit with the crossfire

  23. i only smoke weed but i swear after watching this i had to check what strain i was smoking cuz thats some fucked up shit right there i mean even hollywood wouldnt tthink up some shit like this

  24. Gun-control would be, stop smoking weed, listening to hostile-music and taking it seriously; then close all stores that sell guns. Then pay for sexual favors, because guns are banned and illegal, and because of exchange students need to learn. Then, legalize cocaine and hold drinking parties because college is cool! Whoa, paying off college-loans with cool sex and cocaine/drinking parties; without having Scarface shoot a place up. I think that totally work, the cops would be all jacked up and relaxed and collegiately educated. Maybe less police incidents with guns would result in shootings, they could settle disputes with words and discussions…. or not, and just drive away and tell on the bad people. Maybe escort an ambulance to a location because some weird shit might-could've been happening. That would be practical. Instead of going there, shooting the place up and then calling the ambulance because of shots-fired. Does that mean the cop guy's getting fired when he touches base, because a gun discharged or does that mean a cup of alcohol was lit ablaze because of some high-alcohol volume, and I don't mean ear-noise if you know what that means. Metaphorically speaking, fun is not dumb. If that's even a metaphor. Education is the main-idea people, close those gun-stores like they shutdown all the blockbusters, yeah! Sell guns out a magical vending-machine, so everyone can see what's out at that current-time of-day and year of month. It would be just like how movies are used, you use it then return it. Weird, but totally just following a cookie-cutter pattern I guess. Porn is for adults-only, and should be properly put away by an adult; who washes their hands; and kept out of reach of children that want candy and games. End of story.

  25. Gun conrol is not the issue, they should focus on what they can do to protect these schools. Taking guns away from law abiding citizens is not the correct thing to do. We should make schools more safe. And the porn issue its true, it does pose a health issue. These kids should be trying to get funding to upgrade schools and make them safer. Guns are here and have been here before them, they should learn from what happen.

  26. The kids, like most teenagers or just plain residents of Florida, are reactionary ignoramuses. A ban on "assault weapons" (first of all, there is no such animal as an "assault weapon") wouldn't do a damn thing to prevent school/mass shootings, and they all have a much greater chance of dying in car accidents (approx. 40,000 dead/yr), or simply from a lazy, egotistical doctor's bad handwriting (kills 7,000 people a year). But lobbying for better automobile safety features or doctors who can print legibly won't land them on the evening news and doesn't lend itself well to self-righteous sulking on camera.

  27. Are you crazy Fla has draconian child support law thanks to jeb and back in the day belle glades AIDS capital after a good night's sex you got an STD.

  28. Okay, that's enough news for today. This just really pisses me off. I'm 19 and I say that my generation needs to fucking overthrow the bastards who refuse to protect us. They won't pass gun control, they won't fight climate change, and all because they're being paid off by the NRA and oil companies. Well fuck them. They think they can ignore the real problems and try to make an issue out of porn? What are they going to do in a few years when my generation has control and we don't want to let them cruise by on their retirement? I say we take everything they have and use it to fix this fucking country.

  29. Being shot, no problem…… but adult content…… it must stop now. We have t0 protect the poor kids from porn…..so they can get shot.🤦🏾‍♀️

  30. Porn is bad, less abortion, less pedophiles, less sexual assault less perverted people.
    I'm glad they are doing something about it. Porn is guilty of so much human trafficking.
    All them poor girls forced to do porn movies and treated worst than animals ,is worst than death for them, but society doesn't care, it doesn't matter, as long as is not happening to you or your family, we live in a fuck up world.

  31. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    SORRY…ABOUT A YEAR LATE..BUT..JUST GOT IT IN MY RECOMMENDATION LIST

    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL
