During the October 7 airing of SNL’s Weekend Update, hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che pressed for gun registration and suggested the maximum legal number guns a person can own should be one.
Che intimated the maximum number of bullets a person can own should be six. This suggests the one gun each American could own would be a revolver.
Jost went first during the segment, and as he spoke about the guns purchased by the Vegas attacker a meme captioned “Gun Registration” was visible in the background. Jost asked, “[The Vegas attacker] bought 33 of his guns in the last year and that didn’t set off any kind of alert?” He added, “If I buy $100 worth of Chick-fil-a, I get a text message from my bank that says, ‘Did you just purchase $100 worth of Chick-fil-a?'”
He then shifted from the subtle gun control push to ask, “How is no one keeping track of how many guns people own?” The answer to this question is that the exercise of natural rights were placed outside of government’s purview by our Founding Fathers via the Bill of Rights. This means the ownership of guns is protected from government infringement via the Second Amendment just as Jost’s desire to speak out against guns is protected by the First.
