Take 2 minutes for the funniest commercial about guns you'll ever see.

It's like TripAdvisor, but for criminals.

Watch the video for a full-on laugh-out-loud experience. If you can't right now, scroll down for the gist ... and then some. Please note that THIS IS PARODY. But yes, it is a real, working website that's definitely worth visiting.

A new website is making it easier than ever for criminals to know which states have the loosest gun laws.


Want to get locked and loaded to fire off some bad decisions? CrimAdvisor should be your first stop.

It tells you which states make it easiest to buy, carry, and traffic firearms.

Places like Arizona...

...where you can visit the world famous Grand Canyon...


Because he would fail it.

It also tells you which places make it harder to get your hands on a gun.

Like California...

...with all their silly rules and regulations to keep people safe.

Whether you're a small-time crook or a rising arms trafficker, CrimAdvisor is a must-use resource.

OK, how funny was that?

It's not easy to bring levity to an issue as serious as this one, but with Funny or Die on the job, I wouldn't have expected any less. But let's not forget that gun violence is a serious and devastating problem:

In 2013, there were 11,208 gun-related homicides in the United States.

And despite a strong majority of Americans showing support for universal background checks, Congress has failed to pass a law that would achieve that.

Allowing states to decide how to handle gun safety laws is ... not smart.

Take Massachusetts, for example. They have some of the toughest gun laws in the country, which has reduced gun ownership rates. Yippee! Right? Well, you know there's a "but." Mary Elizabeth Dallas of CBS News writes:

"After Massachusetts passed a tough law restricting gun use in 1998, gun ownership rates dropped sharply, but violent crimes and murders increased. The influx of firearms from nearby states with weaker firearm laws could be to blame..."

I'm all for states' rights. But gun violence has no borders. Let's put some rules in place that we can all live by.

Los Angeles is experiencing a homeless epidemic that was years in the making.

Over the past six years, the unhoused population in the city has risen 75 percent. The city's lack of homeless shelters and affordable housing has forced many who can't afford L.A.'s sky-high rents to live on the streets.

According to LAist, since 2000, renter incomes have decreased by 3 percent while rents have gone up 32 percent.

While the city has launched a $100 million-per-year program to help the problem, rapper, entrepreneur, and actor Jaden Smith has found his own way of responding to the crisis: love.
