Play of the Day: Cinco de Mayo and Gun Control

With Cinco de Mayo over the weekend, Friday's late-night shows noted the holiday's occurrence. Joe Biden's Friday celebration was considered an opportunity to make fun of the vice president by Late Night's Jimmy Fallon, while Jay Leno marked the holiday by talking about immigration again.

Saturday Night Live returned to air with less political humor than usual, though the show's cold open did include a shot at New York's Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his efforts to influence the gun control debate. Weekend Update walked similar ground, with shots at the NRA and Tom Coburn's background check ideas.

Fast forward to 2:20 to see Fallon compare North Korea to a restrictive adult summer camp.
