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

Guns guns guns guns guns guns guns guns.

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):

"Why is Dad So Mad"

Army veteran Seth Kastle had everything going for him when he came home from serving 16 years overseas. That's why it was so confusing to him when his life began to fall apart.

He had a job, a loving wife, family, and friends. He knew things would be different when he moved back to Kansas, but he didn't think they'd be that different. But he felt an extreme anger building up inside, a fire inside his chest that he couldn't explain or get rid of.

Kastle was unknowingly suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), an anxiety disorder that can develop after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event — like war.

When Lily Evans set out to walk her dog, she had no idea the story of that walk would later go viral on the internet.

When she took to Twitter to recount her experience, she opened with a simple question, one that many men have probably wondered for a long time — though women already know the answer.

Flowers are a great way to express your feelings for someone. Red roses say, "I love you," but a whole garden of pink flowers screams it. One husband took the romantic gesture of getting your wife flowers to the next level.

Mr. and Mrs. Kuroki got married in 1956, and Mrs. Kuroki joined her husband on his dairy farm in Shintomi, Japan, The Telegraph reports. The couple lived a full life and had two kids. After 30 years of marriage, the couple planned on retiring and traveling around Japan, but those plans were soon dashed.

When she was 52, Mrs. Kuroki lost her vision due to complications from diabetes. Her blindness hit her hard, and she began staying inside all day. Mr. Kuroki knew his wife was depressed and wanted to do something to cheer her up.

Mr. Kuroki noticed some people stopping to admire his small garden of pink shibazakura flowers (also known as moss phlox) and got an idea. He couldn't take his wife to see the world, so he had to make the world come to his wife.
