Stephen Colbert

Second Amendment rights? Handguns for the people? For Stephen Colbert's guests, sure.

On Thursday's The Colbert Report, the funnyman handed out handguns to his guests during a discussion about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Chicago's handgun ban.

"You know what? I'm a terrible host. Would you like a gun?" Colbert asked Ilya Shapiro of the Cato Institute — which filed a brief on behalf of gun owners in the Chicago case — before pulling out a gun.

"Doesn't that make you feel comfortable?" Colbert asked.

"It does. Not that I feel that threatened by you, Stephen," Shapiro quipped.

Who should feel threatened, Colbert said, was his other guest, Jackie Hilly, the executive director of New Yorkers Against Gun Violence.

"Would you like a gun, too?" he pressed.

"No, thanks. I'm fine without one," Hilly said. "I'm actually very safe without one."
