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.

In just the past few days, the Senate passed an unprecedented $740 billion spending bill amid an inflation crisis, we found out that the IRS purchased nearly $700,000 worth of guns and ammo ahead of plans to hire 87,000 new "enforcement" agents, and on Monday the FBI raided the home of a former U.S. president. It's pretty safe to say that there's a whole lot going on in this country that we've never seen before, and conservatives had "better wake up," said Glenn Beck on "The Glenn Beck Program."

"This is the beginning of an entirely new kind of America. And when it is all implemented, look out! The only other thing that I think [Democrats] could do to really polish us off is [use] emergency orders. If [President Joe Biden] goes for emergency orders and declares a national emergency over the weather, we're going to be cooked," Glenn said.

Glenn went on to explain why he believes a new "season" is on the horizon for our nation, but it’s not all bad news. He said he's hopeful for a new class of politicians to enter Washington, D.C., and, while no politician is perfect, a few such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis can still surprise us.

DeSantis always seems to be ahead of the curve on hot-button issues, and he tackles them the legal way without abusing his power. Just look at how much the media is trying to paint him as evil. That’s a telltale sign that "he’s on the right track, at the right speed. And he's taking all of it on," Glenn said.

The Senate has passed President Joe Biden's $740 billion "Inflation Reduction Act" over the weekend, but the only way this deceptively-named bill will reduce inflation is by crushing your buying power. The massive spending bill includes the largest climate spending package ever passed and will allocate a whopping $80 billion to make the IRS bigger than the Pentagon, State Department, FBI, and Border Patrol combined. And just wait until you see how the bill will affect our farmers.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck broke down three rather "terrifying" components of the 755-page bill and how they will impact you.

CNN’s Brian Stelter had a shocking moment of clarity Sunday when he acknowledged what everyone but the liberal media has known since before the 2020 presidential election: President Joe Biden's son Hunter has been up to some seriously dubious dealings overseas, and his father was almost certainly involved despite his repeated claims to the contrary.

On "Reliable Sources" Sunday, Stelter spoke with first lady Jill Biden's former press secretary, Michael LaRosa, about whether Biden is likely to seek a second term in 2024.

“I hope he runs, and I know he’s going to run. I think he's planning to run ... I don't see why he wouldn't run,” LaRosa stammered.

"What about his son? What about Hunter?" Stelter cut in. “Hunter [is] under federal investigation, charges could be coming at any time. This is not just a right-wing media story. This is a real problem for the Bidens."

Unluckily for Stelter, "The Hill's" Joe Concha can remember all the way back to the fall of 2020:


On a recent episode of Glenn TV, Glenn Beck discussed the most recent findings in the Hunter Biden laptop scandal. Don't get distracted by the seemingly endless stream of scandalous photos and videos, Glenn warns, it's what's coming out about Hunter's overseas business dealings that should be all over the media, because Joe Biden is involved too.
