Colbert Mocks Accidental Shooting Victim, Claims Incident Is "Proof" We Need More Gun Control

On CBS’s Tuesday night broadcast of The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert dedicated a short segment of his “Meanwhile…” bit to making fun of a man who accidentally shot himself in the groin inside an Arizona Walmart store. Momentarily striking a more serious tone, however, Colbert also said that the incident was “further proof that all of our gun laws are too lax” and ridiculed the NRA for its well-known stance that individual people are responsible for shootings, not their guns.
