Glenn has called Mayor Mike Bloomberg the most dangerous man in America because he threatens to bring his progressive agenda out of New York City and to the rest of the country. On Meet The Press Sunday morning, Bloomberg said that he has a responsibility to make the country safer by using his fortune to spread his anti-gun agenda.
Bloomberg's ads will encourage people “to call their senators if they believe that we should have gun checks that stop criminals and people with mental illnesses from getting guns."
Stu said, "This is the thing with background checks. If you talk to people who are on the front lines of this battle, the Holy Grail are background checks for everybody. They can manipulate those into whatever they want. Is it common sense to some degree. This is why liberals like this policy the most. It sounds rational to most people. If we want to stop mentally ill people from getting guns we have to do this every time. But it's a way for them to control on a grand scale. They get their hands into every transfer of guns. It's an expansion. It is a common sense policy to some degree. But it's something where they're overreaching and expanding. I would be very hesitant to give them any of this."
Glenn took issue with the need to have the bill of sale for every gun transaction.
"People don't understand what the private sales mean. Grandpa gives you a gun. You're now in possession of an illegal firearm. You have to grandpa, before he gives you that gun, he has to present the legal bill of sale. Well, grandpa bought his gun in 1974. He doesn't have the bill of sale," Glenn said.
