"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert last night applauded the congressional Democrats at the helm of Wednesday's sit-in for gun control, combining "two things 90% of Americans love: stopping terrorists from getting guns and sitting down."

"In response ... Republicans shut off C-SPAN's cameras, which really upset C-SPAN's viewer," Colbert said. "If not controlling cameras, what does C-SPAN do? Is it a money laundering scheme? Are they a front for the world's most boring heroin cartel?"

"Now as of this taping right now, the Democrats are still staging their sit-in," he continued. "And if you want to know if it's still going on, just check out C-SPAN and if you don't see them, they're there."
