Stephen Colbert doesn’t understand why the National Rifle Association is upset that rental car company Enterprise cut ties with the gun association, ending up the offered discounts for members at its locations.
Using his personal account on Twitter, the CBS “Late Show” host wrote:
I’m surprised the NRA was affiliated with car rental companies at all, considering Hertz and Avis enforce tyrannical rules like "age restrictions" and "having a license."

"What's next, are cops gonna pull me over and ask to see some kinda license or registration?"
