Samantha Bee Learns It's Easier To Buy A Gun Than A NRA Eddie Eagle Costume

"It's easier to buy a gun with no background check than the NRA's Eddie Eagle mascot."

Samantha Bee hit back on the NRA again tonight, this time hitting on their silly regulation of their stupid Eddie Eagle mascot.

After seeing how mockable the Eddie Eagle costume was, Bee set about the task of getting one. And that's where the trouble began.

"But it turned out the organization that makes it easier to get a gun than Sudafed, makes it nearly impossible to acquire their giant dancing eagle," Bee lamented.

Her first task was to complete the NRA's 18-page costume application, which includes 36 rules and regulations which Bee interprets as their way to keep her from "living out her eagle-taunting fantasies."

You'll be shocked to discover there's a mandatory waiting period before that costume could get to her, assuming she was approved to get one in the first place. TWENTY DAYS!

However, while discovering Eddie's trademark was locked down tight so a used Eddie costume was out of the question, she was able to buy a gun online from Armslist.com without any wait at all!

So, did the girl get the Eagle?

Watch and find out.
