Publisher's Summary

When our founding fathers secured the Constitutional “right of the people to keep and bear arms”, they also added the admonition that this right shall not be infringed.
It is the only time this phrase appears in the Bill of Rights. So why aren’t more people listening?
History has proven that guns are essential to self-defense and liberty - but tragedy is a powerful force and has led many to believe that guns are the enemy, that the Second Amendment is outdated, and that more restrictions or outright bans on firearms will somehow solve everything.
They are wrong.
In Control, Glenn Beck presents a passionate, fact-based case for guns that reveals why gun control isn’t really about controlling guns at all; it’s about controlling us. In doing so, he takes on and debunks the common myths and outright lies that are often used to vilify guns and demean their owners:


The Second Amendment is about muskets....
Gun control works in other countries....
Forty percent of all guns are sold without background checks....
More guns mean more murder....
Mass shootings are becoming more common....
These awful massacres are unique to america....
No civilian needs a “weapon of war” like the ar-15....
Armed guards in schools do nothing, just look at Columbine....
Stop fearmongering, no one is talking about taking your guns away.
Backed by hundreds of sources, this handbook gives everyone who cares about the Second Amendment the indisputable facts they need to reclaim the debate, defeat the fear, and take back their natural rights.

The bottom line is Gun Control is less about guns and more about control. Get smart, America. Don't let them infringe our second amendment rights to keep and bear arms. It is unconstitutional, and if it happens, where do we stop as far as letting them take our freedoms away? It won't end well.

How to turn a listener off..

Any additional comments?

Before listening to this audio, I would have considered myself a moderate who doesn't believe in banning guns, but at the same time doesn't believe in liberally handing out AK's along with unlimited ammo to any and all willing to wield them. BLASPHEMY cries Glenn Beck! There is no such thing as being moderate or trying to set limits to anything regarding this precious amendment.

Oddly enough, I bought this with the open mind and intent to be convinced. To take my views slightly further to the right if the opportunity presents itself. Beck is so immature and condescending in his arguments that I think he may have had a reverse effect on me. He constantly attacks, with unnecessary belligerence, all members of the press and other celebrities who take the other side of the argument. Even anyone who speaks out against automatic weapon bans is not spared his wrath. Poor Piers Morgan is mention with distaste at least 20 to 30 times in this book. Furthermore, Beck is unwilling to entertain any notion of limitation, using ludicrous arguments and extreme scenarios to validate his points.

One thing I am grateful for is that Beck presents ideas that I had never heard of or thought about. Apparently, there is an ongoing debate to limit magazines to 10 bullets. I liked this idea as why would anyone, in the name of self defence, ever need more without having to reload? Apparently, I am not at liberty to infringe on the God given right of unlimited continuous shots by asking this question.

Glen Beck could really benefit from a little more refinement and grace in his writing.. yes even while lobbying for an agenda he's seemingly willing to die for.
