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- but tragedy is a powerful force and has led many to believe that guns are the enemy, that the Second Amendment is outdated, and that more restrictions or outright bans on firearms will somehow solve everything.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.

Understand who is behind gun contol

This book is jammed packed with data, sourced facts, studies, and case after case proving an armed citizenry is the best deterrent to crime. While the opposition to an armed citizenry, the highest expression of freedom known to man, has nothing on its side but emotion. For that matter, for the gun control advocates this will mean nothing.

Because many of these people are True Believing ideologues with a utopian vision, and as with ideologues and utopists truth never gets in their way. For the True Believer it is a moral imperative to reject objective facts, objective standards and objective logic, to declare objectivity itself impossible and undesirable. They exploit tragedies in order to further a political agenda and demonize good people who abide by the laws. So don't get this book thinking you will show them the data and they will see the light, because they won't.

Get the book to help you better understand what the real agenda behind gun control advocates.

Great book

While I'm not a huge Glenn Beck fan (recently), this book was spot on. It was easy to follow and made perfect sense. Well done.
