Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns doesn’t understand gun safety

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been going after the freedom of New Yorkers for years, but now he is taking is nanny state crusade national – going after ‘illegal guns’ with his Mayors Against Illegal Guns initiative.

“You will see this on a lot of ads all around the country: Mayors Against Illegal Guns,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Who is not against illegal guns?”

“Everyone including the NRA,” Pat responded.

When you really think about the name of the group – Mayors Against Illegal Guns – the premise becomes even more absurd.

“I don't know of a soul that says, ‘I am a huge Second Amendment guy. I'm not for illegal guns,’” Glenn said. “If you have purchased them and scrubbed the serial number off, I'm not a fan of yours. I'm not fighting for your rights.”

“If you've stolen them from your mom and you're about to shoot people,” Pat continued, “I'm against that.”

Since it is abundantly clear that anyone in their right mind would not advocate for the rights of illegal gun owners, Glenn got to the heart of what Bloomberg’s mission really is. “Now, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, they are not against illegal guns. They are against guns,” he declared. “This is Michael Bloomberg's money; this is Michael Bloomberg's deal. He's the one who has cobbled together these Mayors Against Illegal Guns. We should find all the mayors that are in it because it's all the big, huge progressive cities that are with him on this… Go to MayorsAgainstIllegalGuns.Org and look and find if your mayor is on there and get your mayor to either wake up or take a stand.”

There have been dozens of stories in the news lately about students being suspended from school or reprimanded for playing with bubble guns or biting Pop Tarts into the shape of a gun. This is an attempt to instill a fear of guns in children, which is part of the reason why the firearm education the NRA provides is so important.

“I joined the NRA I think maybe before I even had a gun,” Glenn said. “My wife and I were no different. If you're listening to me and you're like, ‘I don't want a gun and I don't think... and I don't know if I could ever pull the trigger on somebody,’ I'm with ya. I understand that… We were those people. Now here we are ten years later not those people anymore.”

“We've done our homework. We know the difference. We had an irrational fear of guns because we were uneducated. Educate yourself on them. Doesn't mean you have to own one. Educate,” Glenn said.

If you have had the pleasure to view one of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns infomercials, you will see that clearly the producer of the video is not an educated gun owner. The man in the commercial is dressed as a hunter and speaks about the importance of guns for sport and protection, though based on the way he handles the gun, he is probably not the best advocate:

VOICE: For me guns are for hunting and protecting my family. I believe in the Second Amendment and I'll fight to protect it. But with rights come responsibilities. That's why I support comprehensive background checks. So criminals and the dangerously mentally ill can't buy guns. That protects my rights and my family.

“Any black bearded guy dressed like a hunter must be one,” Pat quipped. “He doesn't want to take anybody's gun rights away.”

“He cares about safety,” Glenn continued. “That's why he's holding the shotgun and aiming it right chest level. He's not sitting it up or down. It's chest level. And he has his finger on the trigger.”

“Yeah,” Glenn concluded. “These are going to be very effective spots.”

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
