See? It can be done.

Jeff Ross has taken heat for trying. But Chris Rock demonstrated on "CBS This Morning" on Thursday that it's possible to make an acceptable mass-shooting joke.

Bing:Why does Chris Rock hate YouTube?

"We got to figure out guns," Rock said. "We got to figure out how to stop this gun stuff. We do. Whenever people try to defend their guns, they always say, "I'm protecting my property. I'm protecting my property." Every time there's a mass shooting, it's a guy who lives with his mother. He owns no property."

It makes the shooter the victim of the joke, doesn't minimize the tragedy and takes a strong, fresh point of view. Classic Rock.
