During Tuesday night's episode of "The Daily Show," Jon Stewart tackled the gun control discussion that has been happening since the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14.

The satire news program has been on hiatus since before the tragedy and returned to air earlier this week. At one point, while analyzing if perhaps the media must also be examined for the rise in gun violence in addition to violent video games and films, Stewart pulled out a plastic toy gun.
