When will we ban ‘assault knives’?

Dylan Quick, a 20-year-old student at Lone Star College in Houston, Texas went on a stabbing attack yesterday, wounding 14 people, two critically. TheBlaze has since reported that the student used a razor-type knife during the rampage, and piece of the blade was found in at least one victim. Broken blade pieces also were found in the area where the stabbing occurred, and the handle was discovered in Quick’s backpack.

Fortunately, there were no casualties, but the fact that Quick was able to stab 14 people (mostly in the face and neck) in several buildings before being apprehended is alarming. One of the students who was on campus during the stabbing gave a very candid interview following the incident in which he advocated for guns on campus:

VOICE:  We wish we could protect ourselves with guns and stuff.  We wish that the law would let us carry guns because we're legal adults and carry guns on campus to protect ourselves.  But so far all we have to rely on is on God.  But we'd love to have God and the law on our side.

“He was there. He could have stopped it,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “14 people, two critical, over knives. That's why. America, please. Stop the insanity. We're talking common sense… knife regulations.”

Learning from the best to never let a good crisis go to waste, Glenn opened The Glenn Beck Program last night with an impassioned plea for an ‘assault knife’ ban and stricter knife regulations:

“Last night I did this on the air. I opened the show last night at 5 o'clock with this and I – and it was really offensive because people were still, they were in critical condition here in Texas and, you know, so people might have been offended,” Glenn said. “And I finished this thing and I said, ‘Oh, I'm sorry, is this offensive? Because this is exactly the same space of time it took for the President to come on TV and start going after guns [after the Sandy Hook shootings].’”

On the TV show, Glenn was able to show one of the primary problems with the gun control argument. Even a simple kitchen knife can look menacing if painted black, much in the same way that the so-called ‘assault weapons’ can look like an ordinary hunting rifle in one situation and a much more intimidating weapon in the next.

Furthermore, this event serves yet another example of the problem with ‘gun free zones’. As one of the students so eloquently pointed out, just one person on campus with a firearm could have prevented any number of injuries.

“It's really amazingly, amazingly offensive,” Glenn concluded. “What could have been done in Houston if somebody would have been allowed to carry a weapon?”

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
