Trevor Noah thinks protecting a piece of paper is more important to Americans than the lives of others.

On Wednesday, “The Daily Show” host this week discussed the Senate’s progress on the bipartisan gun safety bill. The bill aims to improve background checks for people between the ages of 18 and 21, incentivize states that pass “red flag” legislation, and remove the “boyfriend loophole” that prohibits partners from buying weapons if they have been convicted of domestic violence.

The legislation advanced in the Senate after mass shootings killed supermarket shoppers in Buffalo, New York and college students in Uvalde, Texas in May. But that didn’t stop Noah from mocking Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for claiming the bill “fully supports the Second Amendment.”

“Oh, I agree with Senator Mitch McConnell. Thank goodness the precious Second Amendment has been preserved. Oh yeah, I mean I’m all for child protection except the second amendment. Oh, did you see that little face? Have you seen him? Whose Second Amendment are you? Whose Second Amendment are you? You are so adorable,” Noah joked. “Sometimes I feel like Americans want to protect the Constitution more than they want to protect the Americans the Constitution is supposed to protect.”
