In her attempt to mock the NRA, Samantha Bee ended up buying a lot of guns. On Monday's Full Frontal, Bee went on a quest to get ahold of a costume of Eddie Eagle, the NRA's gun safety ambassador to children. "Oh, the disgusting satire I could perpetrate with this costume," she said, after finally tracking Eddie down. "But it turned out the organization that makes it easier to get a gun than Sudafed makes it nearly impossible to acquire their giant dancing eagle," Bee said.
The process starts with an 18-page costume application, with 36 rules and regulations, including a mandatory 20-day waiting period. "Who wants to wait 20 days to get something awesome?" Bee deadpanned. "That's not the America I know." But Bee and the Full Frontal staff and legal team spent a lot of time and money to procure a costume anyway, to no avail "The NRA's nationwide costume control prevented me from getting an Eddie," Bee said. But she found a use for all those firearms, and you can watch her semi-triumph below. Peter Weber
