Trevor Noah Shames Florida Lawmakers for Voting to Protect Teenagers From Pornography Instead of Guns

Some things are so terrible that you just have to laugh at them, and fortunately for late night hosts, the Florida legislature has made it a little easier by being both terrible and laughable. Survivors of the Parkland, Florida school shooting made their way to Tallahassee to lobby for gun control legislation, but lawmakers voted, right in front of the survivors, against even debating the issue. They did, however, find the time to declare pornography a public health risk.

“I think you guys are worried about the wrong kind of mass shooting,” said Noah, before quipping about the subject matter. “I know it’s easy for politicians to go after porn. Y’know, it doesn’t have the power the gun lobby does. There’s no NRA for porn going, ‘You can take my porn when you pry it from my warm, lotion-filled hands.’”

Noah went on to joke that pornography could cause serious injuries or PTSD (“Have you seen Two Girls One Cup?”) before imagining what the future of porn in Florida will look like now that politicians have declared having sex on camera more dangerous than guns. Spoiler alert: It mostly involves rubbing guns together a bunch.
