Daily Show To Take Aim At Arkansas Gun Laws

Arkansas gun culture will soon be the target of wit from the Daily Show with Trevor Noah. Correspondent Jordan Klepper was spotted at Midtown Billiards late Saturday night/early Sunday morning. 

My intrepid Facebook contact Whitman Bransford (who has some acclaim of his own) tells me Klepper said he was working on a gun control story when winter weather left them stranded in Little Rock past their expected stay. 

Klepper has had a few bits on gun control. No reason to think he won't be continuing the sentiments put forward in his two part series "Good Guy With a Gun."

Third-hand info says Klepper also visited South on Main, the Rev Room, and Visions Cabaret. Readers may recall when some Little Rock city board members wanted to curtail the 5 a.m. closing time of of a handful of bars (Bransford spotted Klepper after 3 a.m.).
