When callers on Amy Schumer’s faux home-shopping show say they can’t buy guns because of silly things such as violent convictions or being on the no-fly list, the comedian puts them at ease. “You can absolutely get a gun if you have several felonies as long as you buy it on the Internet or at a gun show,” the “Inside Amy Schumer” host explains. “And caller, guess where you are right now? Bam! You’re at a gun show.”

It’s not surprising that the comedian has decided to deal with the topic of gun control on her show—she’s been an outspoken critic of lax gun laws ever since two people were shot at a screening of her film “Trainwreck” in Louisiana last year.
