Jon Stewart Rips The Public's Apathy Over Gun Violence

Posted: Updated:

Why do we keep having mass shootings? What can be done about it? Jon Stewart says too many have decided it doesn't matter any more -- that it's going to keep happening and there's nothing we can do about it.

We've reached the acceptance stage, he said on Monday's broadcast of "The Daily Show."

"It's like America has a dog that's always shitting inside the house, and we solved the problem by getting a brown rug," Stewart said.

But he does want to help the "real victims" of the violence: the news media "who are still going to have to waste valuable time going through the motions of covering these inevitable clearly unstoppable everyday ordinary soul-destroying slaughters."

So what does Stewart have up his sleeve? Watch the clip above to find out. It's just about the only time Pharrell's "Happy" might have the power to make people mad.
