Stephen Colbert went after opponents of gun control on last night's "Colbert Report" after the Senate failed to pass background checks supported by a majority of Americans.
"We no longer have to live in fear that some maniac will come after those we love with a gun control bill," he joked, offering faux praise for the senators as his tongue-in-cheek conservative commentator character.
He singled out senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) Mark Begich (D-AK) for voting against the measure, as well as "Senate majority leader" Wayne LaPierre, the NRA spokesman who has become a public face for anti-gun control measures.
