Not Very Expressive On The Gun Debate
Larry Charles wrote a script for Seinfeld and it involved Elaine purchasing a gun but then the whole cast/crew threw that idea out of the window. The reason why they did it was because they felt that the thought of joking about guns is not funny at all. They got cold feet at the last minute because the sets were created and the crew even rehearsed. However, the room suddenly started to grow uncomfortable because it just seemed like it was becoming an awkward joke. Charles felt that he really believed the joke was untimely and too early but he still laments about being unable to figure out a way to at least have been somewhat proficient about the gun debate in the show, even if it was more of a drama than comedy, for those couple of minutes (seconds?).
