Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker allows concealed weapons in the state capitol building, and True North lets low-income patients trade services for healthcare. (3:18)

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK,

EVERYBODY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

NATION, ONCE AGAIN AT THE

"REPORT" IT IS TIME FOR SHOW AND

TELL.

I'M GOING TO SHOW YOU STUFF AND

TELL YOU WHAT TO THINK ABOUT IT.

THIS IS TIP OF THE HAT, WAG OF

, A

BIG TIP OF MY HAD TO WISCONSIN

GOVERNOR SCOTT WALKER FOR

BRINGING A NEW FREEDOM TO

AMERICA'S DAIRYLAND.

>> GOVERNOR WALKER'S

ADMINISTRATION WILL ALLOW PEOPLE

WITH TRAINING AND CONCEALED

CARRY PERMITS TO BRING CONCEALED

WEAPONS INTO STATE CAPITAL.

>> Stephen: DAMN STRAIGHT!

WE HAVE A RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS IN

THIS COUNTRY AND LIKE IT OR NOT,

WISCONSIN IS STILL PART OF THIS

COUNTRY.

(LAUGHTER)

FOLKS, I PROMISE THIS IS NOT...

THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOU'LL SEE

IMAGES OF GUNFIRE IN THE

STATEHOUSE, BECAUSE WHILE GUNS

ARE ALLOWED, CAMERAS ARE NOT.

(LAUGHTER)

THANK GOD.

CAMERAS ARE DANGEROUS.

WITH NO WAITING PERIOD OR

BACKGROUND CHECK, ANY WHACK JOB

COULD JUST STROLL INTO A

WAL-MART AND WALK OUT WITH A

SEMIAUTOMATIC.

(LAUGHTER)

FOR YEARS, I'VE BEEN PRESSING

FOR STRICTER REGULATIONS ON

CAMERAS, ESPECIALLY AROUND OUR

ELECTED OFFICIALS.

TOO MANY POLITICAL LIVES HAVE

BEEN CUT SHORT BY SOME CRAZED

SHOOTER.

AND IT'S EVEN SADDER WHEN THEY

SHOOT THEMSELVES.

NEXT, FOLKS, EVERYBODY KNOWS I

AM NO FAN OF OBAMACARE.

NORMALLY I'D GET ANGRIER ABOUT

IT BUT I HAVE HIGH BLOOD

PRESSURE AND MY CO-PAYS ARE

THROUGH THE ROOF.

(LAUGHTER)

SO A TIP OF MY HAT TO TRUE

NORTH, A HEALTH CARE PROVIDER IN

FALMOUTH, MAINE, THAT OFFERS THE

SIMPLEST WAY FOR LOW INCOME

PATIENTS TO GET THE CARE THEY

NEED.

>> TRUE NORTH HAS ABOUT 33

PATIENTS WHO PAY WITH TIME

INSTEAD OF MONEY.

THEY TRADE THE TIME THEY'VE

SPENT DOING SOME KIND OF SERVICE

FOR TIME WITH THE DOCTOR.

>> YOU CAN GET GUITAR LESSONS

FOR YOUR KID OR DRIVING YOU TO

THE AIRPORT.

>> Stephen: PERFECT.

JUST TELL YOUR KID "THIS IS

MR. PETERSON, HE'S GOING TO

TEACH YOU GUITAR AND THAT ODD

SMELL IS HIS PERFORATED COLON."

(AUDIENCE REACTS)

"KEEP SOME PRESSURE ON IT."

IT'S A SAD STORY, I REALIZE.

YOU'LL PROBABLY BE PLAYING SOME

VERY SAD SONGS.

BUT THIS IS BETTER THAN

OBAMACARE.

THE TRUE NORTH BARTER PROGRAM IS

CURRENTLY FOR CLINICAL SERVICES

BUT I SAY THERE'S NO REASON IT

COULDN'T WORK FOR MORE SERIOUS

CARE.

ABOUT TO GO INTO LABOR?

HOW ARE YOU AT RETARRING A ROOF.

(LAUGHTER)

AND YOU'RE NOT OFF THE HOOK,

COMA PATIENTS.

IF YOU'VE GOT TIME TO LIEBE,

YOU'VE GOT TIME TO LEAN.

ESPECIALLY ONCE YOU PUT YOU IN

SOME SUPERABSORBENT SWIFFER

ROBES.

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE)

OH, THAT'S OKAY.

IS A COMA PATIENT, AN OLD MAN

WITH A FEEDING TUBE BUT HEAVEN

FORBID YOU MAKE ONE PERFORATED

COLON REFERENCE.

I LOOK FORWARD TO THE DAY WHEN A

DOCTOR CAN SAY "THE BAD NEWS IS

YOU HAVE THREE WEEKS TO LIVE,

THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT'S JUST
