Colbert Praises 'My Parents Open Carry' Children's Book For Not Being Terrifying At All

Posted: Updated:

On Tuesday, Stephen Colbert opened his show with a bang, taking a look at the children's book that has taken the nation by storm, "My Parents Open Carry."

According to its website, the book "was written in the hope of providing a basic overview of the right to keep and bear arms as well as the growing practice of the open carry of a handgun."

But after reading a passage where the parents of main character Brenna explain the evil in the world that necessitates handguns, Colbert remarked, "What a beautiful bedtime story. 'The world is full of maniacs who want to hurt you and the police can't help. Goodnight, honey.'"

"The Colbert Report" airs Monday-Thursday at 11:30 p.m. ET on Comedy Central.
