Stephen Colbert brought back the "truthiness" trope he introduced on his first-ever episode of "The Colbert Report" on Wednesday, this time applying it to the NRA, U.S. senators who voted against a background check bill and right-wing talk radio pundits who vehemently reject any and all forms of gun control.
He went after National Review columnist Kevin D. Williamson, Sen. Rand Paul and radio host Bob Davis, who said to Newtown families in a recent broadcast, "I'm sorry that you suffered a tragedy. But deal with it. Don't force me to lose my liberty, which is a greater tragedy than your loss."
Colbert offered faux sympathy to Davis, lamenting that losing a child pales in comparison to his inconvenience of having to fill out a few background check forms to get a gun.
He then pointed out that a listener offered to buy Davis a plane ticket to express his views to the parents of those killed at Newtown -- and the pundit has yet to respond.
Check out the clip above to see Colbert respond to extreme gun rights defenders.
