>> HELLO.

THANK YOU!

YOU'RE HAVING KIND.

WELCOME THE "DAILY SHOW."

MY NAME IS JON STEWART.

WE HAVE A FINE PROGRAM.

MAZ, AUTHOR OF "THE WAY OF THE

KNIFE," STUNY EXPOAS A ON OUR

NATION'S TOP SPIES, CHEF.

AS YOU KNOW, THIS COUNTRY HAS

SUFFERED.

AND OF COURSE THE CONTINUING

SCOURGE OF GUN VIOLENCE.

ALONG WITH THE TERRIBLE STORIES

ARE SOME UPLIFTING STORIES OF SO

MANY HEROS THAT HAVE EMERGED

FROM THESE TRAGEDIES SO WE CAN

TAKE SOLACE THAT THOSE PEOPLE

ARE OUT THERE AND THAT OUR

NATION'S LEADERS ARE ALSO ON THE

CASE.

>> ON WEDNESDAY, THE SENATE

BLOCKED THE MOST FAR-REACHING

GUN CONTROL LEGISLATION IN TWO

DECADES.

>> Jon: I'M SORRY, DID I

SAY ON THE CASE?

I MEAN KILL MY SOUL.

>> SENATORS VOTED DOWN AN SWP

BAN.

>> AND AGAINST A BAN ON

HIGH-CAPACITY MAGAZINE.

>> THE U.S. SENATE HAS VOTED

DOWN THE COMPROMISE DEAL ON

EXPANDED BACKGROUND CHECKS.

THE VOTE WAS 54 FOR THE EXTENDED

BACKGROUND CHECKS, 46 AGAINST.

( LAUGHTER )

>> Jon: AS TO THAT LAST

ONE, EXPANDING BACKGROUND CHECKS

TO COVER GUN SHOWS AND INTERNET

SALES.

ONLY IN THE UNITED STATES SENATE

COULD TAKE SOMETHING THAT HAS

86% SUPPORT OF ALL AMERICANS AND

AN EIGHT-VOTE MAJORITY IN THE

SENATE ITSELF AS A NO.

THAT'S A NO.

DID THESE ( BLEEP )-- I THINK

THAT'S TRADEMARKED BY DELTA

GAMMA.

( LAUGHTER ).

DID-- REALLY?

YOU ALREADY READ-- GOTTA TELL

YOU.

THE THE INTERNET MOVES FAST!

( LAUGHTER )

DID THESE GUYS PASS ANYTHING OF

SUBSTANCE?

>> THIS AMENDMENT WILL ENSURE

THAT GUN OWNERS ACROSS THE

NATION DO NOT HAVE THEIR PRIVATE

GUN OWNER INFORMATION PUBLICLY

RELEASED.

>> THE YAYS ARE 67, THE NAYS ARE

30.

THE AMENDMENT IS AGREESED TO.

>> Jon: WE CAN'T PUBLISH

WITH GUN
