Vox talks about Samantha Bee's genius segment last night, Samantha Bee had an easier time buying a gun arsenal than a costume of the NRA's mascot
Full Frontal host Samantha Bee had a dream: to buy the costume for the NRA's gun safety mascot, Eddie Eagle. But it turns out the NRA has all sorts of restrictions on getting the outfit. The group requires an 18-page application. There are rules around what you can do in the costume — for example, no driving or drinking. There's even a national registry that tracks Eddie Eagle costumes around the country. At one point, Bee started a fake gun safety training group — and was told only law enforcement can buy the costume.
Watch it here, 6m42s:
I'd like to regulate guns as much as the NRA regulates its mascot.
