Jon Stewart Shows How Incredibly Stupid 'Open Carry' Is

It's what Jon Stewart calls "Gunfight at the Golden Corral" as open-carry gun advocates try to enter popular restaurants while armed with large weapons.

The NRA briefly condemned the practice as "weird" and "scary" before reversing course and supporting it.

But as Stewart pointed out on Thursday's "Daily Show," the NRA also supports "stand your ground" laws which allow people to use deadly force when they feel threatened.

When might they feel threatened? Perhaps when being faced with a group of people armed to the teeth entering a popular restaurant.

"It's a perpetual violence machine!" Stewart declares.

Watch the clip above first, then the one below for the full segment on "open carry."
