Sarah Silverman Goes From Scissoring Sheldon to Arming Seniors

Not content with just convincing young Jewish kids to go down to Florida to convince their bubbes and zaydes to vote for Barack Obama in 2008, or with offering Mitt Romney backer and casino magnate Sheldon Adelson the opportunity to scissor with her if he donated to Obama instead, Sarah Silverman released another campaign video warning people about possible interference from voter ID laws. In the video, “your Jewish friend” Silverman discusses how Voter ID laws are designed to disenfranchise certian groups and notes that in some states, veterans’ cards and student IDs don’t count as voter identification, but firearm licenses do. The solution? Make sure people register to vote any way they can—even if it means getting Nana a gun.Today, incidentally, is National Voter Registration Day, so no matter your politics, you should probably go register to vote and get your democracy on.

Watch Silverman’s latest campaign offering below. As always, I don’t need to tell you this under any circumstances, but don’t read the YouTube comments. They will make your brain cry.
