Daily Show mocks Missouri bill that would outlaw firing employees for owning guns
The Missouri House passed a bill in March that would make it a crime to fire employees for simply owning guns. The Daily Show‘s Aasif Mandvi paid a visit to Jeff City to talk about the bill with its sponsor, Rep. Wanda Brown (R-Lincoln).
Brown told Mandvi that she wanted to stop discrimination against gun owners. But she couldn’t come up with a single example of a Missourian getting canned or discriminated against because they have a fondness for firearms. Mandvi did discover, however, that Brown has a past of being against anti-discrimination measures that would protect gay Missourians. Typical Daily Show awkwardness ensues.
