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PAT: -- the Second Amendment to the Constitution is so ancient and outdated, and so he's done a little bit of an upgrade for us.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.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.
