Jon Stewart has a great bit of analysis on the overall gun safety debate from his Tuesday night show last week, and is, of course, hilarious.

As usual, Stewart deftly combines video clips to expose the hypocrisy of many of the arguments used by pro-gun activists. There are many ideas on the table trying to create a culture of accountability and responsibility around guns and help prevent gun deaths. As for us, we see that an assault weapons ban will immediately help limit the number of dangerous weapons on the streets and could help stem the tide of violence that plagues this country. 

What's your favorite part of Stewart's piece? Tell us in the comments, and if you agree that something should be done nowadd your name to our petition to ban assault weapons. Your voice can help.

Yup. He knows how to lay it out and lead you right to the salient point. There was an interesting discussion on Vermont Edition today. It resulted in several "yelling at the radio" moments....
