"Late Night" host Seth Meyers last night took a "Closer Look" at the gun control debate following a 14-hour filibuster by Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy on the issue.
"The filibuster caught fire on social media and ignited a new sense of urgency around the issue of gun control," Meyers said. "Democrats held the filibuster because gun control opponents have already dug their heels in to oppose any changes to gun laws."
Meyers cited Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, who, when pressed to say that even semiautomatic guns kill a lot of people, told CNN's Wolf Blitzer this week, "So do bombs."
"You can't ban bombs," Meyers joked. "It's one of America's most cherished traditions, putting on your hunting gear, going out in the woods, and just blowing up a flock of ducks."
