Why did Glenn change his publishing schedule to get “Control” out to as many people as possible? (Hint: It’s not just because of his ADD)

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Glenn’s new book “Control” comes out Tuesday and it’s all about the real reason behind the push to restrict or ban guns. What progressives are doing is not about guns, it is all about control. Any of your friends who are not progressive, whether they’re Democrats or liberals or conservatives and Republicans or libertarians, Glenn explains why they should read Control.

“Tomorrow in bookstores we are releasing the new book called Control: Exposing the Truth about Guns.”

“We talked about exposing the lies about guns but, no, there’s plenty of lies. What needs to be exposed is the truth, not the lies. The truth needs to be told. We decided not to take a negative approach to this. We decided instead of debunking all of these things we would tell you the truth about guns and thus debunk all of these things. Because no one is telling you the truth. No one. And we could not find an easy‑to‑read stick‑in‑your‑back‑pocket kind of argument.

When we first did Common Sense, I knew it had to be written and I said to Simon and Schuster at the time, it needs to be a paper back and as cheap as we can possibly make it. There’s no fancy graphics, nothing. Make it as cheap as you can possibly make it because we need to get this in the hands of as many people as possible. On this book not only are we doing that, we are also, at least for the NRA, I don’t know if we’re doing this anyplace else but for the NRA week, we are packaging them in cases of 10 because I know that there are people that will take this book and give it to nine friends.

As I said with Common Sense, please take this book, read it, and pass it to another. Now, I personally think when we did Common Sense, I said I don’t really care about the sales, and I still don’t. What was important about that was it got into the hands of a lot of Americans because they needed to see the truth.

This one I would not pass just to a friend. I would keep a copy of your ‑‑ for yourself because the lies that are undone in this book and by this book are so prevalent, you need to be able to go, ‘Wait a minute, wait a minute, I know that one. Hang on just a second,’ and look it up. You need to be able to make the case, and unfortunately too many of us can’t make the case and that’s why this has gotten so far. It’s available in bookstores and everything tomorrow. I urge you to get it. Have it overnighted, have it shipped to your house, go to a bookstore and get it. Read it. And if you find the value in it, would you please give it to a friend?

The Second Amendment is absolutely under attack. It is going to fall if we don’t educate ourself. I knew this was going to be a problem when we hit Sandy Hook. In fact, Pat was almost finished with a book we had been, what, almost a year working on? Common Sense 2 called The American Crisis, on how much worse it is now than it was for Common Sense. And we were two weeks away from finishing that?

I felt really bad when I wrote everybody and I said American Crisis is off; need to do a book about gun control. And everybody’s like, ‘umm… I don’t think so.’ And I said, ‘yeah’. And we started the day of Sandy Hook and we have, really on this one worked around the clock to get this one done, and we’ve had ‑‑ we’ve had the biggest gun rights people work on it with us, we’ve had researchers out the butt working on this one 24 hours a day and we’ve had some remarkable people, I don’t want to use their name because we didn’t ask them if we could use the quotes.”

“We’ve asked them to read it to see if we were missing anything, but we were getting back e‑mail saying things like ‘most comprehensive book on gun legislation or gun control and the truth about what guns really are and how they’re used’ and what the, what just the truth is that we’ve ever read, and that makes me very happy because we have to have that, and you have to have it in your back pocket.”

“You have to be a defender of the Second Amendment. If we lose the Second Amendment, we lose the first and the fifth and everything else.”

    Well I may get it just make the gun debates I have go better but with everything happening like terrorist hiding in a small town after blowing up people makes the case for us that we do need those AR-15 to put a bunch holes into terrorist like the Boston Bombers before they kill more people.

    The most disconcerting aspect of the whole gun control issue is the amount of intangible evidence that cannot be brought up with a statistic.  Namely, it’s the fact that there is no way to calculate how many potential murderers have been stopped by someone armed to defend themselves (or their loved ones).  There is also no way to calculate how many times a criminal has changed their mind when confronted with the prospect of a shootout with another armed citizen.  The cowards that they are, I’m absolutely certain that they scout out their missions with the aim of killing as many people as possible.  
    Another common sense point that I would like to make is that banning high capacity magazines is antithetic to the entire purpose of the 2nd Amendment.  With that clause alone, you might as well throw the entire amendment out right away.  WHY?  Because the Leftist lobby here is trying to save face by banning only one kind of gun and suggesting “Hey NRA, Hey Conservatives, you still have your 2nd Amendment, you can still use HANDGUNS!”  Of course this is entirely fucking stupid since basically the ban on high capacity magazines makes the argument that, “We, the government, are uncomfortable with a law abiding citizen defending himself against a person attacking him with an automatic weapon, by using an automatic weapon of his own.  We feel that it’s a far better idea to have a law abiding citizen defend himself with a HANDGUN against the perpetrator with the automatic weapon.  There’s no need for a level playing field here…”

    The fact that it’s a part of the Bill of Rights should end all debate before it starts.

    There is only ONE reason for governments to remove the citizens ability to defend themselves, that is to enslave them. Once the enslavement is completed, the government will kill off anyone with a mental or physical disability, followed by anyone not physically able to be a productive member of a controlled society. ALL one needs to do is look at what Adolf Hitler accomplished from 1938 to 1945.

    You have an ironclad sentence here.  There is nothing in the arena of logic to dispute what you’ve said.  Defending ourselves is one of those “unalienable” rights that these alienating Leftists just don’t seem to understand.  Why is the bill even on the Senate floor??!  Great question!

    Glenn I hope you sell all your Books ,but if the people hasn’t figured this out way back even before the gun grab that Obama is after the control of every step of our life then I hope you are praying that you said something in your book to wake them up.
    I worry about you so please be careful my friend I have been with you on air for a long time.

    Well, they seem to have pretty much “got it” that we won’t be disarmed, now they’re buying up most of the ammo. Defacto Gun Control! I say we DEMAND they return it to the factories to be distributed to stores for sale to US. OUR Money paid for it!

  • Patriot

    We must Stand Our Ground! Period! We did it when The Brits tried to disarm us, We Won!

    Incredible how Beck turns attempts to improve background checks, which the NRA supports, into stripping Americans of 2nd amendment rights.  We we know now gun legislation won’t go forward.  Beck obviously published this book to capitalize on the debate before it’s over.  If there’s one thing Beck’s good at, it’s making money. Even when Fox booted him, he figures out how to spin it and make even more money.  That’s his highest talent.  Although, FOX told Politico yesterday about Beck leaving FOX that “Glenn Beck wasn’t trying to save his soul, he was trying to save his ass. Advertisers fled his show and even Glenn knows what that means in our industry. Yet, we still tried to give him a soft landing. Guess no good deed goes unpunished.”

    Get ready for them to start more Fear Mongering to get more control…  Fear and the Fear of Death are going to be their main tactics!  It is going to happen if we don’t stand together on Our Individual Rights Soon, IT WILL BE TOO LATE By Next Year…

    There is ONLY one answer to Obama and his adminsitration and the Second Amendment—-Lock and Load people!

    Come on folks. Do you really think your are going to help solve our countries problems by buying another book from Glenn. Buying his book will just put more money in his pocket which is his only intention and rob you of the ability to think straight and actually do something positive for your country.

    Lock and load????? Just who do you intend to shoot sansalvador?

  • Anonymous

    #1 I don’t recall saying anything about shooting anyone.  #2   Where do you see that written? #3 What does that phrase mean to you? #4 If you think that–why do you want to know? Are you worried for some reason that people want to shoot you ?Sounds paranoid to me. Maybe you should rethink your question?

    No, I’m not worried or paranoid. Just curious and a little amused. I didn’t really take your comment seriously. Still not sure why you feel the need to “Lock and Load”.

    But if he’s correctly cited all of his sources and everything within the book is factually correct against the most intense scrutiny of editors, critics, and publishers, (this is true of anything he’s ever written) then I believe it would be a valuable education tool.  I might just borrow it from someone if I can and not even buy it.  The content being infused into the public’s consciousness is the important part here.  Reading books with facts in them is an essential way to go about living a life full of having the ability to think straight and doing one’s civic duty.  Peace out.

    I’m sure Glenns new book will be full of facts possibly even documented facts. But will the facts be pertinent or useful facts. Facts that will benefit a person in having a better understanding of the issue. Based on Glenns poor history of pontificating on and predicting the future and his twisted understanding of history I will not bother with his new book. But you can read it if you like.I wish you all the luck in the world and hope you enjoy your time in Glenn Beckistan!
    P.S.  Keep an I on your wallet when you are in Glenns vicinity
