Amy Schumer gets to the truth (hilariously) of how our lives would look if the NRA had its way.

Amy Schumer has been vocal both in her comedy and in real life about guns.

In August, she took the mic with her cousin, Sen. Chuck Schumer, to talk about the importance of gun law reform after a gunman opened fire at a showing of her movie "Trainwreck."

And she seized the opportunity over the weekend, while hosting Saturday Night Live, to turn out a brilliant sketch that captures the absolute absurdity of making guns such a central part of American life.


What is life without guns?

She starts with the notion that a life without guns just seems to be missing something, and that the universal thing that unites everybody is their fervor for firearms.

Aww! Baby's first handgun. <3 GIFs via "Saturday Night Live."

It's a glimpse at the world the NRA would have us living in if it could ramp up America's gun-obsessive culture even more than it already does.

Guns are such good, clean American fun.

"For when things fall apart ... or it all comes together."

Usually, I'd give you most of the video in GIF form, but in this case, the spoof itself just has that certain something GIFs can't replicate (mainly the hilarious audio!).

It's worth the watch (and a share):

The former Las Vegas card dealer lost her job due to casino closures during the pandemic and needed $2,000 to cover her back rent. The mother of three couldn't bear the thought of being put out of her apartment with three children in the scorching Nevada desert.

"I had no idea what we were going to do," Kelly said, according to KOAT.
