Jordan Klepper believes he can fix America's gun problems... in one hour. His strategy is simple: change the minds of every gun owner in the United States one person at a time. But will he discover that the partisan divide over gun control is actually much less biased than it seems? Jordan Klepper Solves Guns spotlights alarming legal obstacles and enlightening personal testimony surrounding the issue of gun violence in America. The special follows Klepper as he becomes increasingly aware that legislative red tape and special interests - much more than any cultural or partisan divide - are keeping the nation from simple safety reforms. With appearances by New Jersey Senator Cory Booker; former Army Special Ops soldier Pat McNamara; members of the Georgia Security Force militia; and experts, enthusiasts, and activists spanning the ideological spectrum, the one-hour investigative-comedy special debuts Sunday, June 11 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central.
