Trevor Noah
Trevor Noah, the host of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show," was not really a recognizable name when it comes to comedy, but he has recently been attracting attention after he destroyed the case for gun control during his show.

Noah's broadside against gun-free zones came during a portion of his opening monologue in which he made fun of a Minnesota man fed up with Islamic terrorism. The target of Noah's ire was an ice cream shop owner in a small town southeast of St. Cloud, Minnesota — the site of a mass stabbing at a mall recently — who put up a sign outside of his restaurant that read, "Muslims Get Out."

Noah mocked the store owner for a little bit, but then he moved on to the meat of his opening bit by mocking the man’s rationale for his "Muslims Get Out" sign:

"You know what's also strange is this man genuinely thought people who go around blowing people up would be stopped by a sign? You realize you're talking to terrorists, not vampires. They don’t need to be invited in, alright? Or maybe he’s onto something, because if you think about it, we’ve never tried that. We’ve never actually tried to repel terrorists with signs. Yeah, maybe that’s all the airports need is a sign that says 'No Terrorists,' yes? Yeah, and then guys are going to be walking going, 'Oh, I was going to blow up the airport, but the rules are rules and they said I can’t come in. They said I can't. They said I can’t come in."
Does that argument sound familiar?

Noah probably doesn't know it, but he just accidentally made an airtight case against gun-free zones in particular and gun control in general. He is 100 percent correct: people hell-bent on murdering as many people as possible don't really care about silly signs or laws that tell them not to murder people.

A sign that says "No Guns" will no more keep a violent jihadi from gunning down a bunch of innocent people than will a sign that says "Muslims Get Out." And how can a rational person know that? Well, nearly all places marked with signs designating them as such, don’t deter murderous psychopaths because mass shootings, rather than happening at gun ranges or in gun stores, keep happening in gun-free zones.

The Sandy Hook massacre? Gun-free zone. Columbine? Gun-free zone. The Aurora movie theater shooting? Gun-free zone. The shooting last year at an Oregon community college? Gun-free zone. The shooting at a movie theater in Lafayette? Gun-free zone. The attack on a military recruiting center in Chattanooga? Gun-free zone. The Ft. Hood shooting? You guessed it: gun-free zone. The San Bernardino attack? Gun-free zone. And the massacre perpetrated by an ISIS enthusiast at an Orlando night club? Gun-free zone.

If only Noah would learn to apply his logic to the nonsensical argument from gun controllers that all that is needed to end violence are a few more signs telling terrorists not to use guns.
