Is this the best takedown of the gun control nonsense ever?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Seemingly insane stories of young children being suspended from school for making a gun with their hand or dropping a “pinecone grenade” seem to be popping up in the news more and more. Why are we suspending six-year-olds for playing cops and robbers at recess but letting them play violent video games at home? Glenn explained the backwards thought we are ingraining into our children this morning on radio.

In Alexandria, VA, a young boy was suspended for bring a toy gun with an orange tip to school. Glenn points out that at this day in age, when school shootings are far to frequent, it’s understandable that a teacher would call the police.

Glenn held up up an example of the type of fake gun you can find now. These guns don’t always look like toys. In fact, the one Glenn held up looked like a the real thing.

“Unless you touch it, you have no idea it’s not the real thing,” Glenn explained. “What am I supposed to do? As a teacher, you call the police, right? But if you can see that it is a fake gun — stop it.”

Glenn explained that we need to start using common sense when we are teaching kids right from wrong and to have a healthy respect for firearms. There is no reason to suspend someone over something that is obviously fake or if they make a gun out of their finger or a piece of paper.

This time of reaction is giving children an irrational fear of guns — one Glenn believes to be intentional. He explained that he knows people, that if they are in the room with an unloaded gun, will be terrified.

“If I tell them that it’s real, and unloaded, they will not pick up the gun,” he said.

Now look at that fear through the eyes of a young child.

Many families across the country will watch violent movies with their kids. They’ll watch TV shows where people are using guns, shooting each other, etc.

“Many people in this country will have no problem showing them this, because they’ll say, ‘my kids know the difference’,” Glenn explained.

But when a tragedy. like the horrific Sandy Hook massacre, occurs, they will not talk to their kids about it or let them watch the news stories about it on TV. They shield and protect them.

“We’ll show them the fake violence in movies and on TV, but we’ll protect them from the real violence,” Glenn said. “Which one, in the big scheme of things — if you had to pick one — which one is more important to show your kids?”

“The real life scenario obviously,” Pat responded.

But that’s not what they see. Glenn explained that kids are shown the horrible consequences of real violence, only the entertaining versions. Kids go to toy stores with their parents and buy fake guns, but then, when they’re in front of their teachers or other authority figures, they get into trouble.

“So now, this and every other kid at the school have been taught that what mom and dad bought for them at the Toys “R” Us — that you can brandish a toy and you can go to jail,” Glenn explained.

“So now, when Dad says, ‘let’s go to the shooting range’, do you thing this kid is going to have a healthy respect for guns? Or an irrational fear of guns?” Glenn asked.

He went on to explain that it is important for kids to have a healthy respect for guns. It’s important that they know how bad guns are when in the hands of a mad man and how powerful that they are. But kids aren’t shown the bad side of guns — only the entertaining “fun” side.

“It’s all acting. It’s just a game. You get points. It’s a good movie. It’s entertainment,” Glenn said. “And then we have our police and our school systems teaching them that guns are bad. But they’re teaching them much more than that.”

Our society worships teachers. So while they’re not telling the kids that “Mom and Dad are stupid,” it’s what the kids are learning. They’re learning that ‘Mom and Dad’ don’t understand.

“Our kids aren’t trusted with the choice of apples or french fries. Our kids aren’t trusted with a 16oz. soda. But our kids are trusted with the ‘morning-after’ pill and birth control,” Glenn pointed out. “And that doesn’t need a consultant. You are creating and killing life — you can make that decision at 13. But you need a license for a gun, and a psychological test.”

To own a gun, they want you to have a license, have psychological evaluation, they want to know who’s living in your house. But if you want an abortion, no problem, here’s your pill. Kids are being taught that the values their parents are teaching them at home are irrelevant, because “teach knows best.”

“I mean, if there’s not a case to pull your kids out of school I don’t know what it is.”

    We are seeing the conditioning and brainwashing of an entire generation, to where the parents mean nothing and the government becomes mother, father, brother, sister and the master of all you can have so long as you comply and do not cause any dissent.

    That is what we are seeing unfold step by step, top down, bottom up and inside out.

    My son pulled his first trigger when he was 2… his dad held the 12 gauge while he pulled the trigger.  My baby son was thrilled and uttered..”do it again, daddy”!  just saying!  that’s the way we roll in Texas!

    This is Political Correctness run amok!!!  Is there no common sense or rational thought in America?  Those of us that grew up playing Cowboys and Indians, or Cops and Bad-guys learned to differentiate between good and evil, right and wrong, appropriate behavior vs criminal behavior.  To suspend a child making a his hand into a gun, or arresting a child for playing with toy guns… seriously????  These folks need to get a brain and get over it.  If the 2nd Amendment applies to “the right of the People to keep and bear arms.” then certainly that same Amendment along with the 1st Amendment guaranteeing free speech/expression should be protecting these innocent kids having innocent fun.  Shame on those that turn them into criminals for imitating their heroes… or at least those who are supposed to be the good guys!!!

Do U really think that its OK to suspend a student because a piece of paper falls out of his bookbag and looks somewhat like a gun to someone else ? Our children do not go to school to be indoctrinated either right or left, they are sent there to learn skills that will get them thru life productively.

    Mr. Beck,
     Tears ago I both volunteered and worked at several Boy Scout camps. Among lots of other things I taught kids how to shoot rifles. My first lesson was always to show the devastation that a real gun, as opposed to toys or Hollywood, I would blow apart a jug of water or a melon, just to show what could happen.Then I would get into the nuts and bolts of gun safety, all before putting a rifle into their hands. At no point did the rifle get up and chase a kid. At no point was there any injuries. I know some of these kids went on to serve our nation. This is what needs to happen for these kids. Taught to be able to handle and respect a gun, not fear them.

    Hello America. I’m from Australia, Born and Raised. But if I could choose I’d be Yankee, In Fact, I Reckon I’m Beck’s biggest fan in the southern half. I really hope that you can turn it around so you don’t end up like this joint. Don’t believe what you see on TV about how good things are down here. We’re so much further down the leftist PC path than you it’s not funny. Reminds me of that poem after WW2. You know, First they came for the…….and so on………then they came for me.

    First they come for the automatic guns, then semi auto’s, then paintball, then airsoft, then cross bows, then bows, the Tasers then the hand held Y slingshot, then machetes, then knives and now it’s even illegal to carry or own capsicum spray down here. In fact, it’s also illegal to own a toy gun that might be mistaken for a real gun for a brief moment. We’re not talking just having to have an orange tip. We’re talking the whole gun must be orange/clear/etc. If a kid paints even a part of it black, He’ll get a record for position of an illegal weapon.

    There are no stand your ground rules and they seem to think that by disarming everyone of everything, they will sort out crime. Wrong.
    Whilst the media can shout all they want about the fact we haven’t had a massacre since the great gun buy back. And they’re right. They’re omitting other things as well. Like free mental health care for one. And the laws surrounding gun safes and storage that helps keep them out of their hands while they are in a rage. But more importantly they omit that gun violence has increased exponentially. Gangs down here have a free reign over control unless the police arrive fast. Every month the paper is full of police raids on hideouts where they turn out piles of guns in the hands of mobsters. Stick up’s go uncontended at late night servo’s, in ally’s and in homes. We are powerless to defend ourselves. And crime down here, especially gun related is on the up and up. At the end of last year they had a month of amnesty, where one could turn in an illegal weapon they didn’t hand in the first place last time. There were still thousands out there including recently home made auto’s.
    Due to our current wealth and welfare even the bum is rich at the moment which is also holding crime down. But it wont last for much longer, I think we’re in a bubble to the rest of the world.
    I’d just like to tell you about where it is at down here and where it could lead for you if it goes on. And have rant about some of the crazy laws down here at the same time.
    All those thing’s I mentioned earlier are really illegal here. I wasn’t exaggerating. Follow this link
    http://www.police.vic.gov.au/content.asp?Document_ID=110 
    to see the full list prohibited weapons. It includes batons, staffs, and laser pointers. That’s right. not even a laser pointer. Firearm link is on the left.

    What if you need any of these things for a legit purpose you ask. That’s the best part for the lefty Gov. Licensing! These are what you need a licence for and the reason you’re allowed to acquire under. Pricing is rough. varying.

    Auto/ semi auto guns, Tasers - Strictly Law enforcement Only.
    Guns, Only Bolt action. – For Farmers, Sport’s Clubs, Collectors, $150-$300pa
    Bows, – same as above.
    Slingshot, – same as above.
    Paintball. – Club members only. $150-$300pa
    Swords, Machetes, large knifes, batons, - athlete’s and collectors, $150pa
    Replica toy gun – collectors/movies only. $150pa
    laser pointer – university, astronomy, scuba diving. about $150pa I think.

    Airsoft is completely illegal in the country. Not even with a licence. It’s to realistic.

    But by far my biggest grudge is fishing licences, $25pa, unless your a native Australian. And you need one in every state you fish in.

    Rant over for now. if any one want’s to more. there is plenty more.
    Our Prime Minister just removed a white senator and replaced her with a Aboriginal woman. For the reason of. “It was my legacy, that as a labour leader. I appoint the first Aboriginal senator in history.”

They’re learning that ‘Mom and Dad’ don’t understand.” is not true – especially the worships teachers part. That line is absolutely laughable! States/school boards make the rules – not teachers.

    All my kids were home schooled and graduated from college with honors.They are married now and all own guns. As children they were raised with guns in the house and have raised their children with a respect of firearms and how to treat them safely. Home schooling is an alternative to public schools. It works! But parents have to be involved with their kids education. Today most public schools are where mommy and daddy drop off their kids and expect the teachers to raise them. Of course the kids will be taught what the school believes and what the government tells them to teach. When they get home they defy their parents and tell them what is right according to the government because their teacher says so. Guns are not the problem any more than automobiles are for people driving drunk, hit an run accidents,etc.

     Maybe schools where you’re from teach that trolling is a productive and healthy way to participate in society, but it’s got to be lonely living under that bridge…

    Thing is, guns are not good or evil.  They’re a force.  A power.  The danger, the good, the evil, is all in the person using the gun.  More often than not, they’re used to protect.  People shouldn’t fear guns any more than they should fear electricity.  They should respect what they can do, and use them responsibly.

  • sixholdens

    Where can I get one? I mean one of those guns that can kill all by itself? Last I checked it took someone holding the gun and pulling the trigger to enable a gun to kill. People using guns kill, the gun is just the tool. Baseball bats, hammers, knives and a few hundred other tools have the power to kill as well, but they all require a human to accomplish it.

    Not as cut and dried as you would like it. Hitler was part of the government that banned ownership of guns by certain ethnic groups, then he came to power and increased that list and then enforced it with force.

  • sixholdens

    Respect of firearms is good. Fear is not, at least fear of just a firearm by itself. Fear of a firearm in the hands of a nut job is rational. Fear of a firearm in the hands of someone that you know respects them and knows how to properly handle them is irrational and the person needing mental help will be the one who has the fear.

    Please take a class on handgun use, it will help alleviate your discomfort with them.

  • sixholdens

    Why would it be irrational to think guns are fun? Have you ever used one? Do you know anything about them then what you have been told by other anti-gun nuts?

    To me whacking a little white ball all over a grass field that USED to be a productive farm is irrational. Or carrying an oblong ball up and down a field that could be used to grow corn is irrational. Shall I continue? At least with firearms the land is not made unproductive by the square mile. In fact! A shooting range can be created above a productive field of many products. Can’t do that with golf, football, cricket, polo, soccer, etc. Talk about irrational.

    Take your test to prove you know your subject and get paid more as well as keep your job. Don’t know what they hired you to teach, either go back to school and learn it again or get a new job.

    Teachers spend a lot of time with children at a very vulnerable time in their lives and they have been taught how to brainwash their captive audience. As for society worshiping them…… let’s hope not, they aren’t that special. Necessary, yes.

    Overreaction by teachers on the subject of toy guns, finger pistols and drawings should be nipped in the bud, the teacher should be reprimanded and required to attend training to teach them how to handle such situations. The students should also be counciled on  why some people react poorly to such innocent things.

  • Grant Stokes

    Gun controls, Primarily, Safe storage, licencing and back ground/ mental health checks have there place. But if you’re going to go that far then where do you stop. Right up until it’s illegal to own a potato gun or a bait thrower for surf fishing. It’s a joke. Not freedom. The only people I know who handed in their guns regret it now. Trust Me. The other guns are still out there. Difference now is that luckily. Most of the time gang bangers are shooting each other. And the mentally ill can’t just grab one from their dad’s closet. But innocent people are caught in the cross fire all the time as well. Just a case of mistaken identity though. Wealth is our biggest weapon against violence. We just fluked out with natural resources. Just last month a police mans gun was stolen. He was hit over the back of the head with a hammer at the station. And the gun was gone. Another one in the wrong hands. It could have been bad. Luckily it wasn’t. But it was just luck.
    The media like to quote the amount more gun violence America has. you can’t deny it’s high. The question you should be asking is. Is it in line with how much higher our over all crime is anyway? I’d almost bet it is. Once again. I wouldn’t suggest criminalizing every gun owner by pressing stupid cost and compliance on them. How bout criminalizing the people who shoved them through school and never picked up that they needed help. They were just a normal kid once. What happened? And why did they feel the only way out was to turn to murder/suicide. Where were the church’s running the free counselling centre’s. Why didn’t a school Chaplin or youth pastor pick this up. No Funding? Not Allowed?
    That type of behaviour is following isolation and a build up of tension they can’t express. You need a culture that it’s OK to be a man and need help. I’ve been there. But the help needs to be affordable and not cause people to look down on you. Thankfully my pastor picked things up early and got me the help I needed. I’d not been sleeping from PTSD for over a month. I didn’t even know what was going on. I’d never heard of it before.

You see, if you actually cared about children and gun safety, you would not encourage fear of guns in lieu of respect and knowledge of them. Obviously marxists like yourself believe that the government needs to step in and with blanket regulation, destroy everyones rights in the name of protecting them….All the while, turning a blind eye to the real problems in this country, mainly, the destruction of the family. But then again, marxists want the government to be the leader of the household, not mom and dad!

Because it has the potential to harm others. Would you be ok with that?

    they are useful idiots just like the media and the hollyweird/music scene, who all believe that they are part of the elites circle. once the progressive elites gain control they will close ranks shrinking the circle. leaving the useful idiots crying “why did they kick us under the bus” that’s what the leftists have been doing all throughout history and will keep doing. say what people want to hear and idiots will follow, they only see and hear what they want, not what is actually being said and done.

    So the gun lifts itself up off the table and kills people?  Amazing!  Or, is it that PEOPLE use the gun to kill?  Just like they use knives, hammers and cars.  Wouldn’t THAT be truthful education?

    Remember the hoopla over obesity being a danger to our national defense?  Teaching our children to be so scared of weapons is devastating to our national defense.  These children will enter the adult world with such a screwed up sense of self preservation, they will be psychology disabled.

    you wouldn’t know the truth if it hit you in the face.  No gun has ever been convicted of killing anyone.  The truth isn’t that guns kill, no more then pencils misspell words.

    Guns need someone to pull the trigger to kill another person.
    Ergo, pathetic mentally people kill.  The governments in each
    state should have stricter gun registration to determine who
    gets a gun.  Guns should not be allowed across State borders
    unless each state has a person register in that state.
    If guns are taken away from people and a terrorist or mentally
    ill person cannot get them, these people will find other weapons
    to use for mass murder.  Why don’t people realize this?  Next,
    it could be bombs.  These people always will find a way.

    Being scared of things that can kill you is normal and smart. You’re an idiot if you’re not afraid of weapons. Duh.

    “people that are “suppose” to be smart ”

    Yeah, I hope your kids aren’t being home schooled.

    33300, you are forgetting that part of our freedom is based on the right to move freely about within our own country. What you propose is similar to having to have papers to go from one town to the next. Plus it is a hamper to commerce which is strictly against free trade another one of our rights. State borders in this country are not manned check points, is that what you would like? To have to stop at each border crossing and be inspected for contraband? Not my idea of freedom. Gun registration is strict enough as it is. Just try to buy a new one from a gun dealer.

    To sixholdens:
    I was not proposing border patrols for guns.I was proposing that you check with each state to see if you have to register yourguns before you go through that state.Many states, if you have an accident ordisobey a traffic violation, will have deputiesthat check your car for guns.  If you have aregistration from that state, you will not haveany problems.
    If a state will not allow you to register, either 
    don’t go through that state or leave your
    gun at home.  If you know you are going on
    a trip, allow yourself enough time to 
    register in that state, if they allow guns.

    What you are proposing is to take us down into a can of worms. Just because a person has an accident or violates a traffic law is not justification to search their vehicle without a warrant. Thoughts along that track will lead to warrant-less searches by the thousands. Most states do not require any type of registration of firearms unless you are buying it new from a store. It is just too big of a problem with too much money involved for any state to undertake it. Just ask Canada how much money they spent on their failed registration program. Was over 2 billion dollars when they got smart and shut it down. And how much did they achieve by trying? They achieved wasting 2 billion dollars but as for stopping crime, decrease gun violence or any other of the goals they had when they started the program, absolutely zero, unless you consider making some people very rich as an achievement for a government program.

    Right now there is a problem with concealed carry permits. Some states do not honor other states permits. Until they get that solved adding another problem to the gun issue would just be a waste of time and it will solve nothing. Zero decrease in crime of any level of violence. Zero decrease in the death rates, Zero decrease in anything except the annoyance level of legal gun owners across the nation.

    Knives also kill, as do baseball bats, swimming pools, ice picks, stairs and oh yes, the biggest killer of all, cars.  More people are killed by cars each year than all of the others I cited (and many other causes) combined.  If you are REALLY about saving lives, ban cars.  If you are about something else, let’s discuss that.

    At one time in this country every boy brought his gun to school, it was a tool that they had to have close. When I was young I brought my shot gun to school on the buss, so I could ride my budies buss to his house, and hunt the weekend with him. No problems at all. Yesterday I had a nurse refuse to come into the exam room with me because I was wearing an NRA cap, and T shirt. She was afraid!

    Actually, my kids learned what guns do when I took them out hunting and they got their first deer…and all that goes with that, the gutting of the animal and subsequent butchering.  Showed them damage a high power rifle round will do on the organs, rib cage, etc.  I think that’s even more effective than just teaching them that they are “dangerous”.

    My father would not buy his sons a BB gun.  I remember him saying, “No, you’ll treat it like a toy and you won’t respect it.”  Instead, he bought us .22 rifles at age 10 or so.  I DID respect that weapon, and every gun he allowed us to shoot thereafter:  .410 shotgun & .30 cal hunting rifle.  So when I was trained at NRA hunting course, BSA and USAF firing ranges, and finally CHL course, I already knew to respect the weapons in front of me and to handle them safely. People raised with and taught to respect firearms do not abuse them.

    That, Glen, is the major problem with the way children are being brought up in America.  They are not being taught that there are consequence for their bad actions.  ”No Kid Left Behind” That is total BS.  If a kid doesn’t take the time to study and learn the way the kid that gets an “A” does, then he should have to repeat the grade until he gets it right.  We are teaching our children in sports that “Everyone Wins”, that again is BS.  Sports are a competition, you have a winner and a LOSER.  What we need to teach our children is to lose gracefully.  Stop playing the fence my friend, speak up and tell it like it really is.

    snowleopard,
    You are totally correct, our government (our wrongfully elected ruling elite) is making decisions as to how our children should be raised and they are getting in the way of what should really be happening.  as I stated to Glen in a previous post:  Our children are not being taught that there are consequence for their bad actions.  ”No Kid Left Behind” That is total BS.  If a kid doesn’t take the time to study and learn the way the kid that gets an “A” does, then he should have to repeat the grade until he gets it right.  We are teaching our children in sports that “Everyone Wins”, that again is BS.  Sports are a competition, you have a winner and a LOSER.  What we need to teach our children is to lose gracefully.
