If Your Ex’s Signature Was Required for a Gun Purchase, What Would You Do? Ask the Canadians

Today, Pat and Jeffy filled in for Glenn and discussed Canadian gun laws — and there’s a lot of those. While we take precautions here in America and honor the Constitution, Canada apparently requires your spouse to sign off on your gun purchases and if they don’t, the authorities will notify them of your purchase anyway.

We obtained the lengthy document which you can see for yourself below.

According to boxes 18 and 19 of the Royal Canadian‘s  Application for a Possession and Acquisition Licence Under the Firearms Act (for Individuals Aged 18 and Over):

The signatures of your current or former conjugal partners is not legally required. However, if their signatures is not provided, the Chief Firearms Officer has a duty to notify them of your application for a firearms licence.

The idea that spouses, exes, and recent conjugal partners can potentially prevent you from buying a gun in Canada is just insane. If you happen to not have a spouse who can sign off for you, a long and boring licensing course is required as Jeffy’s Canadian friend in Ottawa and friend of the program explained.

PAT: -- the Second Amendment to the Constitution is so ancient and outdated, and so he's done a little bit of an upgrade for us. And all we have to do is accept the brilliant work that he's done and ratify this as the 20 Eighth Amendment to the Constitution.

JEFFY: Nice.

PAT: Which, of course, reveals the Second Amendment.

JEFFY: He's already put the work in.

PAT: Here's what would happen. He says, as over 90 percent of gun violence is committed over man, in order for a man to purchase a gun, he must first get a waiver from his current wife. Plus, his most recent ex-wife or any woman with whom he's in a current relationship. If he's gay, he must get the waiver from his male spouse or partner.

Okay. This law has greatly reduced most spousal domestic gun murders in Canada.

Canada has such a rule?

JEFFY: I --

PAT: Come on. That can't be.

JEFFY: If you say so.

PAT: That can't be. Further, all automatic and semiautomatic weapons are banned. Oh, okay. Sure.

No gun or clip can hold more than six bullets. To activate a gun for it to be used, the trigger must recognize the fingerprint of the registered owner. This will eliminate most crimes committed with a gun, as 80 percent of these crimes are done with a stolen gun.

One's guns must be stored at a licensed gun club or government-regulated storage facility. Believing that having a gun in your home provides you with protection is an American myth. Is it? Well, that tell that to the people who have used a gun for protection in their homes.

People who die from a home invasion make up a sad, but minuscule .04 percent of all gun murders in the United States. And over a third of them are killed by their own gun that the criminal has either stolen or wrestled from them.

To own and operate a gun, one must obtain a license, like one does to operate a car. To get a license, you have to complete a gun training and safety course and pass through a background check.

As nearly half of all gun deaths are suicides, mental health care must become a top national priority and must be properly funded. And by making it more difficult to purchase a gun and requiring its storage outside the home, easy access during a suicidal moment is denied.

Current restrictions placed on Centers for Disease Control, due to successful lobbying by the NRA have prohibited them from studying the gun violence epidemic in the United States. These rules need to be removed and the funding restored.

For those who believe it's impossible to do all this, let me close by sharing with you two important facts. One, we are not a country of gun nuts. Seventy-seven percent of all Americans do not own a gun.

If three-quarters of the country has decided they have no need for a gun, three-quarters of the country may also decide they have no need for an archaic amendment.

Let's do a survey on that. Let's find out who believes the Second Amendment is archaic. And who believes it's still necessary. When President Obama tried to get Congress to pass simple common sense gun control legislation after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary, polls showed 90 percent backed it.

Yeah. Well, that's because they didn't understand what was being said there. I mean, those kinds of polls are easily spun. And that one certainly was.

I mean, Michael Moore -- this is just insanity. We need to check into the Canadian law because I don't believe that in order to get a gun in Canada, you got to get a permission slip from your wife. That just can't be.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
