The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah spent part of last night’s show discussing a new open-carry law in Texas that lets licensed gun owners carry holstered guns in public.

As the late-night host points out, Texas has always been a gun-loving place. This latest legislation just ups the ante as far as gun-waving nuttery goes.

“Texans could already carry assault rifles,” Noah points out. “So basically, it’s like they started at a 10 on the crazy scale, and now they’re saying, you know what? Let’s throw in a seven as well."

Noah then launched into a slightly questionable bit comparing the gay community and ammosexuals, noting that “Texas is out of the closet about being super gay for guns.”

“This was almost a little like when gay people first realized that society was starting to accept that people might be openly gay,” joked Noah, “and they immediately went out and started dancing on truck beds dressed as giant penises. Which, on the one hand, is great, because you be you. But at a certain point we get it,” said the host, as the image of a Texan openly carrying an assault weapon appeared next to him. “You love giant penises.”
