I saw this online because I don’t watch The Daily Show.
I guess it is supposed to be funny, but it’s not. What it is, is very revealing of the Left’s true beliefs.

First of all, the Left just assumes that gun owners are all Conservative homophobic bigots and that if they “make guns gay” that those same people would give up their because of the icky gayness.
Not is this just anti-Conservative bigotry – assuming that all Conservatives are bigots – it is glaringly homophobic.
The Left continues to prove that they don’t really like gays, just that homophobia is a convenient identity politics brickbat with which to beat opponents. As soon as homophobia makes a convenient punchline for an attack, they will use it.
This also discounts the rise in the number of gays (and other minorities) who are discovering gun rights as it becomes more and more clear that they are going to have to defend themselves because incompetent, ham-fisted, politicized law enforcement is incapable of doing that (see the failure of the Orlando PD and the Pulse shooting).
Lastly, they can mock “manly gun culture” as being gay all they want, but at the heart of gun culture is a belief in the right to self-defense and to resist oppression and tyranny. It’s telling that ultimately what they want is for people to reject self-defense and resistant to tyranny as icky and unpalatable.
Everything about this clip is ugly, bigoted, and wrong. So it makes sense that The Daily Show thinks it’s funny. Which is why woke scolds suck at comedy so much.
