Colbert criticizes open-carry children’s book

Comedy Central personality Stephen Colbert did his best this week to criticize a children’s book that discusses the open carry of firearms, aptly titled, “My Parents Open Carry.”

“Unlike other parents,” Colbert said, “Brenna’s parents carry loaded weapons openly. Which might make Brenna feel different, but her father reassures her that ‘Brenna, there is evil in this world, and we want to protect you the best we can…When seconds count, the police are minutes away.’”

“What a beautiful story,” he continued. “The world is full of maniacs who want to hurt you and the police can’t help — goodnight honey! Let me just open the window so you can get a breeze.”

“My Parents Open Carry is long overdue,” Colbert concluded. “I wish there were more firearms in children’s books.”

He gave several examples, e.g. “Goodnight Forever Moon,” and “Where the Wild Things Were.”
