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."
