On Tuesday, Jon Stewart pulled out a gun on The Daily Show, as Comedy Central aired a typical Daily Show-style montage of anti gun control advocates saying things. When the montage ended, Stewart had a gun in his hand. A plastic one.
"I'm not sure what happened," said Stewart. "I blacked out in the middle of that, and woke up with an AK in my hand...I don't know...or whatever this is. I'm sure I'll get letters about what this really is, which is plastic, is what it really is."
According to J.K. Trotter at The Atlantic Wire, it was an M16A2.

The clip is generating a great deal of buzz on the Internet, as the gun control debate continues.
