Glenn Agrees With the Second Half of Trump's Statement on Guns

Following the NRA's endorsement of Donald Trump, the real estate mogul's views on gun control have been in the news of late. When it comes to the two leading presidential candidates, Glenn favors one over the other on Second Amendment rights.

"I will tell you, though, that listening to Hillary Clinton talk about guns makes you want to vote for Donald Trump," Glenn said.

Trump supports Second Amendment rights and favors ending gun-free zones --- in schools and on military bases. However, Glenn couldn't help but poke fun at Trump's contradictory statement about guns in classrooms.

"Donald Trump wanted to clarify his stance on guns in classrooms. Now, I'm quoting, 'I don't want to have guns in classrooms. Although, in some cases, teachers should have guns in classrooms,'" Glenn read.

"I love it when he contradicts himself in the same sentence," Co-host Pat Gray added.

Trump insisted he was not advocating for guns in classrooms. Except when, well, he is . . . in some cases.

"I'm not advocating guns in classrooms. Except in some cases. And a lot of people have made this case, teachers should be able to have guns. Trained teachers should be able to have guns in classrooms," Trump said.

It's not unusual for politicians to contradict themselves, but Trump is the master.

"He actually says it, disagrees with it, says it again, then disagrees with it again in two sentences. That's like, I mean, that's impressive," Co-host Stu Burguiere said.

Glenn actually agreed with part of Trump's statement.

"I happen to agree with his second statement in both the first and the second statements that he made, the second line of his first and second statements of . . . I think some teachers do need to have guns. I'm going to go with that one, because I agree with that one. I think teachers, if you're a trained professional, you should have guns. You will stop the killers, pretty quickly," Glenn said.

Of course, Stu cogently pointed out the real problem with gun control on campuses --- it all boils down to signage. Because as we all know, if there's on thing criminals respect, it's well-worded and well-placed signage.

"The big mistake here is the failure, of course, of government who did not make it a murder-free zone. If they would have done that, they're not going to violate both of those things. They might violate the gun-free zone, but if you make it also a murder-free zone . . ." Stu said.

That should do the trick --- a big sign describing the various zones to criminals.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
