Comic Steve Hofstetter certainly thought he’d tapped into something brilliant with his hot take on guns. Notice how deftly he manages to take self-styled patriots down a notch by questioning their need to defend against their country.

Unfortunately for Hofstetter, this isn’t stand-up, and he’s not the only one holding a mic. Maybe liberals can’t see past citizens having a parent-child relationship with the government, but plenty were able to explain that loving one’s country doesn’t mean placing all trust in government.

Is this a bit? Because we’d need to be well over the three-drink minimum to even have a chance of understanding what Hofstetter thinks he’s trying to say here. It’s a particularly bad take when leftists are out marching every weekend with the sworn goal of outing the “fascist” Trump administration and restoring democracy.
