The problem of gun violence in America isn’t going away any time soon.
When campaigning doesn’t work, the next best thing is political satire.
In a recent episode of Sunday with Lubach, the host and Dutch comedian Arjen Lubach fronted a mock charity appeal calling on people to help the US with its NRA ('Nonsensical Rifle Addiction').
The appeal says a “devastating humanitarian crisis” is happening in the US, and that NRA is a “constitutional disorder caused by a dysfunction of the prefrontal second amendment in the nonsensical cortex, causing patient to shoot people”.
Often, patients use silencers to hide their condition.
NRA is highly contagious. Parents often pass it onto their children.
People with the most severe form of NRA are often in hard-to-reach places like rural areas. Or Congress.
The video ends with an appeal for help, adding:
With your contribution the Red Cross can send aeroplanes to drop water, blankets, facts, insights, statistics and truth bombs.
Here's the full video, and remember: give generously.
