"Daily Show" host Trevor Noah last night shifted focus away from Super Tuesday voting and onto Iowa -- "the land of corn, caucuses, and people in cow suits pretending to be cows" -- where lawmakers proposed a bill making it legal for kids under the age of 14 to shoot handguns.

"Beliebers vs. Directioners is gonna get a whole lot more interesting," Noah said. "And you thought teenagers could hurt each other with tweets."

The only condition the bill stipulates is that the minor have "visual and verbal contact at all times" with an adult.

"Which is great news for parents," Noah added. "Because maintaining visual and verbal contact can be done using FaceTime. That way you can still supervise them without actually being physically around the kid with the loaded gun."
