Nancy Pelosi’s Response to a Law-Abiding Gun Owner Is a Doozy

Not even a week after the Las Vegas tragedy, Nancy Pelosi was approached by a concerned citizen about the right to self-defense and Pelosi’s answer is just what you imagined it would be. It fell flat and made no sense whatsoever.

“How does rendering me defenseless protect anybody else from a violent crime?” the young woman asked.

The Minority Leader responded with a quip claiming, “No one is advocating that. We’re not talking about taking guns away from people. What we’re talking about is to make sure that people who have guns register and that there are background checks to prevent other people from being in harm’s way.”

Well, we have that. Today as Pat filled in for Glenn, he broke down some of the gun laws already in place and agonized over the fact that Democrats continue to call for stricter gun laws despite the fact that it’ll do nothing but make it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to obtain a gun.

Also, Nancy Pelosi was confronted by a concerned citizen yesterday on CNN about guns and gun ownership. And --

JEFFY: "Powerful" is the word you're looking for?

PAT: Powerful. Yes. Yes. Should get just a powerful response.

JEFFY: Powerful. Okay. Good. That's what I thought.

PAT: See what you think of this.

VOICE: How does rendering me defenseless -- me meaning, a law-abiding citizen -- by taking away my ability to defend myself in the manner in which I believe I should be able to choose to, where I want to? How does rendering me defenseless protect anybody else from a violent crime?

NANCY: Well, let me be a consolation to you, nobody is advocating that. We're not talking about taking guns away from people.

PAT: Yes, you are. That's a lie.

NANCY: We're talking about -- to make sure that people who have guns register, and that there are background checks on that.

PAT: There are background checks. I went through one when I bought my AR-15 and when I bought a handgun.

I went through background -- we have background checks. They act like there's never been a background check on anybody. Almost everyone has gone through a background check to buy a gun. And they always say this: Well, all we want are background checks. Well, we have that.

JEFFY: We have that.

NANCY: Prevent other people from being in harm's way. But no one is questioning your right to have a gun or to eliminate your safety.

PAT: Okay. That's just not true. That's just a lie.

JEFFY: That's not what she said.

PAT: A lot of people are advocating that we take guns away from people.

JEFFY: Yes, they are.

PAT: And a lot of people are advocating that we ban guns. And the right shall not be infringed. The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Second Amendment wording, not mine. So you keep -- you keep bringing this up, and you keep avoiding discussing the right not being infringed, by saying it's common sense.

Well, no, it isn't. No, it isn't common sense. Okay? It's unconstitutional what you're talking about doing.

JEFFY: While they're infringing.

PAT: While they're infringing. They're talking about -- well, I'm not talking about the Second Amendment. I'm just talking about common sense. Nobody is talking -- nobody is talking about the Second Amendment.

JEFFY: Don't be stupid.

PAT: They know they have to say that. Because if you were to poll the American people, you know, it would be easily, 80 -- 85 percent of Americans would want the Constitution upheld.

JEFFY: Yes.

PAT: I hope it's that high still.

(laughter)

JEFFY: Don't take that poll. Don't take that poll. Don't take that poll.

PAT: Yeah. Maybe we don't want anybody to take that poll. But America still believes in the United States Constitution. And that's why they always say, "Oh, I'm not talking about the Second Amendment. I'd never touch the Second Amendment.

JEFFY: That's the Constitution.

PAT: No, I'm just talking about common sense gun law. Okay. Well, yeah, your common sense gun law, it's unconstitutional. So stop talking about it.

(laughter)

JEFFY: But she's not talking about it.

PAT: She's not talking about that though. She is talking about background checks, which we already have.

JEFFY: Yeah, but she's talking about background checks.

PAT: That's right. Background checks. And what was her other point? I've completely forgotten what the other --

NANCY: At all. That kind of clarification. Because that is part of the argument, well, you're going to take away -- nobody is taking away anybody's guns. All we're saying is, you should have a background check.

PAT: We have that.

NANCY: And people -- responsible gun owners from the hills of Arizona to duck blinds of Minnesota, all over, say, we're all law-abiding. We have many guns. We have as many guns as he has. But we have --

PAT: Yes. Hello.

NANCY: -- background checks.

PAT: But we have...

Background checks. Seriously, something is wrong with her.

JEFFY: Something is definitely wrong.

PAT: Say it again. Something is definitely wrong with Nancy Pelosi.

JEFFY: I'm not sure what it is, but there is an issue.

PAT: Yeah, there's -- I think there is an issue.

JEFFY: And she's quoting the great line from the song from the hills of Arizona to the

duck blinds --

PAT: To the shores of Tennessee.

JEFFY: To the duck blinds of Minnesota. I mean, I was just humming that yesterday.

(laughter)

PAT: It's -- that's -- what's the name of that song? It's --

JEFFY: Oh, beautiful, right?

PAT: No. It's a patriotic song by the country singer.

You don't know.

JEFFY: Yeah, yeah. No. Yes. Yes. I do.

PAT: What's-his-face? Who performed it --

JEFFY: Yes.

PAT: He performed it at a rally for America. Lee Greenwood. Lee Greenwood.

JEFFY: I'm trying to put Lee Greenwood out of my mind.

PAT: Well, ever since that rally for America where Lee Greenwood wouldn't stop playing -- in fact, I think it was 2003 that the concert took place. He just wrapped it up 15 minutes ago.

He would not stop. It was like hours.

JEFFY: I saw Lee Greenwood in a powerful performance in Tampa, Florida.

PAT: Did you?

JEFFY: The music sound system was down. Okay? And so all he had was just a one-stand microphone that was working. And he performed.

PAT: You can't stop him from performing. You can't -- you cannot stop Lee Greenwood. He's like the Energizer bunny. He just keeps going.

Tulsi Gabbard Smashes LIES about Our Military & Conservatives | Ep 99

It's hard to put a label on former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate, Tulsi Gabbard. She has worked with Bernie Sanders but has also felt the fires of the Left and mainstream media for simply putting her love for this country above partisan politics. Lately, she has even sided with conservatives on issues from transgenderism to Big Tech censorship. But as much of the nation dives dangerously deep into partisan politics, Tulsi calls on Democrats to turn their talk of unity into action and joins Glenn to lead the way. Together, they ask who's defining "extremism," why are there still troops guarding the Capitol, and how long will we let our First Amendment be trampled on as Congress "bullies" conservative media outlets and the COVID-19 restrictions persist? And Tulsi shares her own experience in the military that shatters the far-left narrative that it's crawling with white supremacists.

CONTROL FREAKS: The Great Reset Overlords Who Will Ru(i)n Your Life

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"
