Watch Amy Schumer’s Previously Axed Gun Violence Sketch (Video)

“Inside Amy Schumer” clip has been released in wake of Orlando shooting

Amy Schumer has released a previously axed “Inside Amy Schumer” sketch that discusses gun violence in the wake of the Orlando shooting.

The bit is a commercial for a law firm that promises monetary damages after accidents — unless it’s related to gun violence.

“Have you ever been injured in a mass shooting or other gun crime? Do you want justice?” the lawyer, played by H. Jon Benjamin, says. “Hi, I’m Toby Shrak of the law firm of Shrak and Murphy, but don’t call me, because there’s nothing I can do.”

Several victims recount their experiences — one is disabled for life after a shooting, and when she called the law film, she was told she was “s— out of luck.”

According to the Huffington Post, the clip was originally cut from the Comedy Central series’ episode “Welcome to the Gun Show” but was released to the public after the mass shooting in Orlando, which left 49 people dead and dozens injured earlier this month.

“Get the money you deserve,” added the lawyer. “Unless you are victim of a gun tragedy. You can call me just to talk.”

Schumer hasn’t been shy about voicing her opinion about gun control. She ripped the Senate for failing to agree on four gun-related amendments earlier this week.

“I am sickened by the cowardice of these people who are supposed to lead us,” Schumer told Politico. “Their dedication seems to be only to dollar signs for their own pockets. In November, we will remember who stood with the gun lobby, rather than their constituents, as we mourned for Orlando.”

After a gunman opened fire last summer during a screening of her film “Trainwreck,” the comedian also expressed her thoughts.

“Unless something is done and done soon, dangerous people will continue to get their hands on guns,” she said at the time, according to Entertainment Weekly.

“The critics scoff and say, ‘Well, there’s no way to stop crazy people from doing crazy things.’ But they’re wrong. There is a way to stop them. Preventing dangerous people from getting guns is very possible. We have common-sense solutions.”
