Play of the Day: How to protect yourself from the government

Most of the late-night monologues were light on political humor last night, but Stephen Colbert decided to devote an entire segment to a "rational" conversation on gun control, which he called "Stephen Colbert's Double Barrel Blam-o-Rama."

Colbert called out CNN talkshow host Piers Morgan for not answering his guests important questions, like "How many chimpanzees can dance on the head of a pin?"

Over on the Daily Show, Jon Stewart weighed in on the conversation about the gender and race of Obama's new cabinet appointees. He examined the photo circulating showing Obama running a meeting with only "white male" advisers. 

"Computer. Enhance," he said, pointing out the clearly visible African-American in the picture.

But for today's must-see moment, fast-forward to 3:02 to see Internet sensation James Yeager's reaction — "in measured tones" as Colbert said — to the administration's upcoming gun control suggestions. Then skip to 4:32 to see his suggestions for what to do when the government comes for your guns.
