Liberal Colbert Rips Proposed Colorado Gun Dorm
Stephen Colbert channeled the mother and teacher from the classic "A Christmas Story" on the 29 November 2012 edition of Comedy Central's Colbert Report as he made fun of a proposed dormitory for undergraduates with gun permits at the University of Colorado. The only thing missing from his left-wing stereotypes of gun owners as trigger-happy yahoos was the famous "you'll shoot your eye out" line.
Colbert cracked that the move from the mountain state school would "forever ensur[e] that no one will think of it as a safety school." After pointing out that not one student had signed up for the dorm, he snarked, "Come on! This is college! It's time to get crazy (audience laughs) - do shots, take shots, get shot....live a little - if not very long."
