What was written for Daily Show  host Trevor Noah as a snarky flaying of a reactionary bigot posting a “Muslims Get Out” sign outside of his Minnesota ice cream shop turned into an accidental takedown of gun free zones on last night’s show. This was almost certainly not Noah’s intent, of course, but his logic applies nearly perfectly, for reasons that we’ll outsource to The Federalist’s  Sean Davis in a moment. But first, here’s the clip and a partial transcript:

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.”
