"Daily Show" host Trevor Noah last night celebrated Senate Democrats' successful fifteen-hour filibuster on gun control measures following last weekend's massacre in Orlando. Despite their better efforts, Senate Republicans will now have to vote to close the gun show and online loopholes.

"I understand this, but I still find it weird that you can buy a gun on the Internet," Noah said. "I can't even watch porn without lying about my age."

Another bill up for vote would prevent anyone on the terrorist watch list from purchasing a gun, which Noah said, "sounds like it shouldn't even be up for discussion."

"It seems obvious, but the terror watch list should be up for discussion," he continued. "It's a secret list that anyone can be put on at any time ... It's kind of like that list girls controlled in high school to decide who was cool or not."
