What’s Really Going on With These Calls for Gun Control After Vegas Shooting?

Joe Biden, Michael Bloomberg, Tom Arnold … what’s a common theme behind their tweets advocating for gun control reform? Doc had a tongue-in-cheek theory while sitting in for Glenn on Tuesday’s show.

DOC: Doc Thompson in for Glenn. We're going to go down the list of some of the reaction from celebrities to the attack, the murderous rampage in Las Vegas. And try to help them come into contact or understand their emotions a little bit better. Now, a lot of these, you're going to think, it's just anger. Them lashing out. But I think there's something more to it. So I have lists of adjectives to describe emotions. And we'll try to apply them here.

So first, Joe Biden, for example. Joe Biden tweets out a couple of things: Appalled by the senseless loss of life in Las Vegas, Jill and I hold all of those affected and grieving in our hearts.

How long do we let gun violence tear families apart? Enough. Congress and the White House should act now to save lives. There's no excuse for inaction.

Obviously angry.

KRIS: Very angry.

DOC: But see, I think there's more to it.

KRIS: Okay.

DOC: I think he's also feeling irrelevant. Unimportant. Unemployed.

There's -- I'm just trying to help, Kris.

KRIS: I think this is going to go this way. I thought you would actually be helping them.

DOC: I am helping them.

KAL: He could have felt those things about four years ago.

KRIS: There goes Kal.

DOC: Well, no, Kal recognizes Joe is probably feeling a little lost lately, feeling a little irrelevant, and he has to lash out. See, I'm helping, Kris.

Michael Bloomberg, former mayor: Resolve to stop mass shootings in America and back up our words with actions.

Feeling very controlling.

KRIS: Very.

DOC: And also irrelevant.

Okay. Tom Arnold, for example.

KRIS: I thought you were doing celebrities.

DOC: Oh, that's a good point.

KAL: Talk about irrelevant.

DOC: I was doing celebrities. You're right --

KRIS: So who is this guy?

DOC: Isn't he the guy who got famous for diddling Roseanne Barr?

KRIS: Whoa. Can you say that on TV?

DOC: Diddling. You know, playing --

KRIS: Playing the flute?

DOC: Playing the flute. Exactly. You know, a little game. That means board game, right? In Spanish?

KRIS: Yes.

DOC: Tom Arnold tweeting: Stephen Paddock is a terrorist. Trump signed a bill allowing mentally ill eager -- mentally ill, easier access to guns. @NRA will sell more guns. #guncontrolnow.

Dogmatic. Power hungry, maybe. How do you think he's feeling, Kris?

KRIS: I think he's feeling --

DOC: Triggered?

KRIS: Triggered.

DOC: Is that inappropriate? Snowflake-esque. Something like that.

KRIS: Dirtbag-y.

DOC: Shaun King tweeting out: Only in America can whiteness prevent the man who conducted the deadliest mass shooting in American history from being called a terrorist.

KRIS: Shaun King.

DOC: Head of -- the guy who started or early founder of BLM.

KRIS: You mean the white guy?

DOC: Yeah. But he identifies as black.

KRIS: Okay.

DOC: He's more black than Rachel Dolezal. So I think today he's feeling more black.

KRIS: Because --

DOC: Only whiteness.

KRIS: Yeah.

DOC: Clearly he's not identifying with his white side today.

KRIS: Has he disowned his white side? Because he is white.

DOC: Maybe. Could be. Hmm.

Andy Cohen.

KRIS: Again...

DOC: I don't know who that is either. But he's a verified account. He's one of the Hollywood types. Here's what he tweeted, very simple. And I'm going to help you.

KRIS: Okay.

DOC: How about we ban machine guns? How about that, Kris? How about we ban machine guns.

KAL: They're already banned.

DOC: I'm sorry. What?

KRIS: Thank you, Kal.

DOC: They're already banned. Oh, that 1930 law. The law that's almost 100 years old. Hmm. Okay. So I'm guessing he's feeling stupid.

Ignorant. Embarrassed. If he's not, he should be. Because it's -- it's been about 100 years since they've been banned. Just so you know.

KRIS: Meaningless?

DOC: Meaningless. Something like that. He should be. Andy, you should be.

Now, he followed these up, when other people were like, also 1980 law that bans them as well.

KRIS: He tried to clean it up?

DOC: No, that's what other people like tried to tell him. '30s law and 1980's law.

And he was like, yeah, I'm just saying that's my reaction when I hear about that, that we should ban them.

KRIS: So idiotic?

DOC: Yes. Spin. I guess spin-master. Something like this.

KRIS: Loser?

DOC: Loser, that would work as well.

KRIS: Dummy?

DOC: If you want solutions, we have solutions coming up for you as well, from Vicente Fox of Mexico.

Was Dr. Fauci involved in a COVID cover-up?

Released emails between virologist Christian Anderson and Dr. Fauci during early 2020 show Dr. Fauci was aware several, competent doctors believed the COVID virus contained genomes 'inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory.' Or, in other words, they didn't believe it simply evolved from a bat. So, then, what changed? And why was Fauci so concerned when a 2012 paper regarding his interest in 'gain of function' research began to circulate online? It's all just speculation for now, but Glenn shares HIS theory: Fauci may have been involved in a major COVID-related coverup…

THIS is why Dr. Fauci’s emails ELIMINATE his credibility

Glenn breaks down the recent Dr. Fauci scandal, explaining WHY his recently released emails are so damning. Not only do his correspondence disprove the theory he was being censored by the Trump administration, but they eliminate any credibility he may have once had on the COVID pandemic, too. Even further: they confirm he lied under oath. The mainstream media may want you to think he's 'Mother Theresa in pants,' but these emails tell a MUCH different story. So, is it finally time to #FireFauci?

LIVE NOW: Golden State Gulag: California's pursuit of Communism is a WARNING for America

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.

4 QUESTIONS the DHS must answer regarding their domestic ‘terror’ warning

The DHS recently released a rare terror bulletin, warning Americans of an increasing threat: domestic extremists. But if the Biden administration believes there's a grave danger to the American people, WHY are they not providing us with the information we need to protect ourselves? Or is it all due to politics? Glenn has four questions he believes our officials in DC must answer. For example, WHY are the Capitol rioters being treated like prisoners at Guantanamo?
