March for Our Guns in Helena

Around 150 demonstrators gather Saturday for the March for Our Guns on the steps of the State Capitol.

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah ran a segment Monday night from "all the way out in Helena, Montana," featuring the program's coverage of the March for Our Guns event last Saturday.

The program, featuring interviews from some of the rally's 150 attendees, covered the event in a mocking tone.

The show's correspondent, Roy Wood Jr., talked to people at the rally about gun safety at schools.

Wood interviewed people who called for arming teachers and who said they felt people at the March for Our Lives in Washington, D.C., were paid crisis actors. He also addressed the crowd, though didn't say he was a part of the TV show.

Wood also mocked that the event did not allow guns, saying going to a pro-gun event without a gun is "like being sober on Bud Light island."

The program did not mention the March for Our Lives events across the state, including one that drew about a thousand people just across town from the event at the Capitol.

That was not lost on Montanans, who took to Twitter to voice their concerns.
