Here’s What You Need to Know About ‘Bump Stocks’

In the wake of the Las Vegas shooting, people have been calling for gun control reform and sharing a lot of “facts” about guns. But how do you sort out what’s real and what’s not?

Caller Dave from Oklahoma talked about firearms, bump stocks and the gun debate based on his 30 years in law enforcement on today’s show. Pat and Jeffy took calls while sitting in for Glenn.

Are fully automatic weapons legal? What does a “bump stock” do, and should the device be banned? What kind of weapon was the Las Vegas gunman likely using? Pat and Dave sorted through some of the big questions everyone has been asking.

“Just be careful about listening to these armchair experts,” Dave said, encouraging people to question everything and figure out the facts for themselves. “The devil’s in the details. … Accept nothing at face value.”

CALLER: Hi. Hi, Glenn, how are you doing?

PAT: It's Pat. But doing good, nonetheless.

JEFFY: He doesn't really care.

CALLER: Sorry about that.

PAT: That's right all right.

CALLER: This is a little bit off topic, but I'm just trying to get the word out on this new bill that Republican Marcus Carbela (phonetic) has introduced to the house.

PAT: Okay.

CALLER: Now, it would make it a felony, punishable by up to five years in federal prison, to own any part or combination of parts that could increase the rate of fire of any weapon.

And the problem with that bill --

PAT: Is that just a Utah bill, or is that a US Congress bill?

CALLER: That's a US Congress.

JEFFY: Yeah, it's a Congress -- it's the reaction to the bump stock, right?

PAT: Wow.

CALLER: Exactly. And it's so open-ended that they could basically include anything that they want. It could include bump stocks, binary triggers, adjustable triggers, muzzle breaks, gas blocks, even (inaudible) -- because all those things could help you to increase your rate of fire. So like I said, I'm just trying to get the word out so people know about this. Because it seems like they're trying to pass it under people's noses.

PAT: Yeah, I've heard almost nothing about it. It's HRR399?

CALLER: HRR3999. And it was introduced by Republican Marcus Carbela.

PAT: Okay. Appreciate the heads up. Thanks a lot, Matt.

Interesting development along those lines too from the shooting in Las Vegas. Not only are they -- they're obviously going to use this as -- as cannon fodder for passing any kind of gun control legislation. And that's what this obviously -- that's what this bill is all about.

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.
