Amy Schumer just released an anti-gun sketch from her Comedy Central show that the network banned from airing.
According to The Ring of Fire Network, Comedy Central banned the “Inside Amy Schumer” sketch (below) for “going too far and being too dark.” Worse than that, it’s just flat out not funny.
The sketch opens with lawyer Toby Shrak, played by H John Benjamin (whose voice may sound familiar to those who watch Archer or Bob’s Burgers), doing his best to win the business of victims of gun violence while whining that he can’t sue gun manufacturers when criminals use their products to do harm.
“Since my brother caught a stray bullet at a mall shooting,” the lawyer says to the camera, “I found out it’s not even worth it to try to sue gun or ammo manufacturers because the law gives them almost complete immunity from liability.”
Then the testimonials of shooting victims begin, including one cheery woman who says, “A co-worker we laid off opened fire at my office with a semi-automatic weapon that the gun manufacturer had made incredibly easy to convert to a fully-automatic machine gun. I am disabled for life. So I called Shrak & Murphy and they told me I was sh*t out of luck.”
One testimonial comes from a young white male who says he was committing a school shooting when he slipped on the wet floor and sued the school district for $500,000 dollars and won.
Oddly, Schumer didn’t include any radical Islamic terrorists in the gun violence testimonials.
According to Yahoo News, Schumer, the cousin of Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, puts the blame of the Orlando terrorist attack not on Islamic jihad, but on gunmakers and the people who value the 2nd Amendment:
“I am sickened by the cowardice of these people who are supposed to lead us,” Schumer told Politico in response to the Orlando attack. “Their dedication seems to be only to dollar signs for their own pockets. In November, we will remember who stood with the gun lobby, rather than their constituents, as we mourned for Orlando.”

Saturday Night Live and Schumer also covered this ground back in October of last year in a sketch titled, “Guns,” which is a heart-warming tale of mockery depicting people celebrating special occasions not by giving jewelry or flowers on special occasions, but fire-power:
