Stephen Colbert gave the NRA and their flame throwing head, Wayne LaPierre the mockery they deserve for again ginning up fears that if President Obama is reelected, he's coming for all of your guns. As Colbert pointed out in his opening segment this Tuesday evening, the irrational fear of what President Obama might do, has lead to this:

COLBERT: Yes, the fear of not being able to buy guns, has led to buying so many guns, that now we can't buy any guns, just like we feared! Oh... oh too simple. Right? I know what you're thinking. Colbert's being irrational. Oh really? It happened before. In 2008 when people bought guns before Obama took office, because they knew he'd pass harsh gun regulations, which he didn't!

And I will not fall for it again, Mr. President, because we are one step ahead of where you are not planning to go.

What's really sad and tragic is just how many people actually buy into what Colbert was making fun of here and as Bill Maher pointed out, that the Democrats have ceded the fight on gun control.
