CNN’s top deportation candidate Piers Morgan showed the world how not to have a rational debate on gun violence, gun culture and gun control when he invited a Second Amendment-crazy crazy man to come on and be crazy.

The Daily Show‘s Jon Stewart doesn’t make obvious, amateur mistakes like that for the sake of ratings. When Stewart takes on a serious issue — guns, financial fraud, care for 9/11 first responders — he does it with clarity of thought and the benefit of everyone else being a freakin’ lunatic.

Watch him thoughtfully, earnestly, reasonably, take on the issue of gun violence in the aftermath of Newtown: “So this is what it is: Their paranoid fear of a possible dystopic future presents us from addressing our actual dystopic present. We can’t even begin to address 30,000 gun deaths that are actually, in reality, happening in this country every year, because a few of us must remain vigilant against the rise of Imaginary Hitler.”
