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.

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.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
