Comedian Jon Stewart clashed with Oklahoma state Sen. Nathan Dahm in a debate about gun control and drag shows.
Stewart discussed gun violence with Dahm, a "Second Amendment purist," on the latest episode of his Apple TV+ series The Problem with Jon Stewart.
The Republican argued that rather than guns, the country should focus on addressing "fatherless" and broken homes, prompting strong pushback from Stewart.
"The registry would allow you to have much more effective background checks," Stewart continued.
Stewart then accused Dahm of being a hypocrite, since he and many other Republicans want to stop children from seeing drag performances.
"Because the government does have a responsibility to protect —" Dahm said before being cut off by Stewart.
Stewart interjected, pushing his ear forward as he waited to hear the word "children.". »
