    Lighten up, Francis. John Stewart is a comedian, not a mouthpiece for anything. He's also libertarian-leaning. I saw the piecewhen it originally aired, and happen to know John Pierce, one of the guys profiled for the bit. He had a good time doing it, and knew full well, that it was going to be a comical look at open carry, which is sorely needed. Most open carry types take themselves too seriously.

    Sometimes you got to learn to laugh at yourself. Conservatives hate John Stewart because he makes them look like fools with such ease. But to be fair, they do make themselves look bad.

    Either you watched a different show than I did, or you failed to get the joke. Stewart didn't make anyone out to be whackos. John Pierce and Mike Stollenwerk, two of some the biggest open carry and Second Amendment activists around, worked with Stewart on this bit. Neither of these men are fools; in fact, it's safe to say that they're highly intelligent, and politically savvy. It was an affectionate jab at the open carry movement, not a derisive one. John Stewart has, on a separate occasion, spoken out against the Brady Campaign, and while is still "liberal" when it comes to gun legislation, understands that guns aren't the problem, people are.

    I think that people are determined not to like it only because it's John Stewart. If it were Bill Maher, I'd understand; that moron is vehemently anti-gun, and not even creatively funny about it. I've talked to Pierce about the sketch; he has no regrets, and had a good time filming it.

    I thought it was humorous. I am not a big Stewart fan, but anybody that slams the Brady Bunch is OK. The skit was funny and while jabbing at the OC movement, it portrayed the OCers in a pretty good light. They were professionally dressed and well groomed. They looked like regular joes, but with a sidearm. The Brady Bunch just looked stupid. Works for me even if Stewart is behind it.

    Hey Porp and C hawk Glock...

    Just remember "those who cannot laugh at themselves leave the job to others"

    We all know there are those among us in our society who cannot have anything negative said about their views, joking or not.

    I, for one, choose not to be that person on the either side of an issue.

    I chuckled at it more than once... though there wre a couple of cringe-worthy moments. I don't normally like John Stewart, but he does "get it" every now and then.

    He gets it about 99% of the time in my opinion. He definitely got it this time.
