Comedian and actress Amy Schumer hosted Saturday Night Live over the weekend, and one gun-related parody definitely stood out.
The skit shows Schumer and SNL cast members in memorable life moments—a birth, a date, college party. But instead of giving normal gifts, everyone receives a gun.
The sketch was particularly notable because of Schumer's participation. Back in July, three were killed by a gunman after he opened fire in a screening of her film Trainwreck in Louisiana.
Schumer was vocal about gun control after the attack, joining Senator Chuck Schumer (her cousin) in calls to end gun violence.

It's even better because the account uses the picture of Moss from The IT Crowd, so it's only natural to read these tweets in his high, English accent.
