Is it time to ban assault knives? London makes plea for citizens to stop stabbing each other.

The Left dreams of a world without the Second Amendment, but I wonder if any of them have actually stopped to consider what that might really look like.

It just so happens we don’t need a crystal ball or Doc Brown’s Delorean to get a glimpse of what this post-Second Amendment, progressive utopia would look like. All you have to do is look at how our cousins are doing across the Atlantic.

If you find yourself somewhere in London anytime soon, flip on the TV. You might see a public service announcement discussing the dangerous rise of teen knife attacks. The government has launched a $1.6 million ad campaign in a Hail Mary to try and stop 10 to 21-year-olds from stabbing each other.

Knife attacks are out of control in England. The murder rate in London is now higher than that of New York City. When describing knife attacks and violent crime, British officials are using the words “virus” and “epidemic” to describe what they’re seeing.

While the number of firearms continues to rise in the United States, violent crime is going down.

But the differences between London and New York tell only a small fraction of this story. While the number of firearms continues to rise in the United States, violent crime is going down. Overall, violent crime is down nearly 1 percent. Rape is down over 2 percent, robbery is down over 2 percent.

Aggravated assault, property crime, burglary, theft and even arson are all down multiple percentage points. The Left wants to take our firearms away, even though crime and violent crime is on an escalator heading downwards.

Now, let’s look at England and Wales. Our cousins outlawed guns back in the late 90s following a school shooting and cries to “DO SOMETHING!” Violent crime and sex offenses are now hitting catastrophic levels. Want to know the increases from just the past year alone? Robbery is up 29 percent. Sex offenses are up 23 percent. Knife attacks and violent crime are up over 21 percent.

Guns are banned in the UK, but that didn’t stop nearly 7,000 crimes from being committed last year with a firearm. One thing is certain --- guns are harder to find --- but that’s not stopping bad guys from committing violent crimes in record numbers. Last year, over 37,000 crimes involving knives took place in just England and Wales alone.

If you ban guns, crime increases.

It makes you wonder, is Piers Morgan lighting up the airwaves calling for a ban on assault knives all across the UK? Is everyone blaming the knives for the rise in crime or are they blaming the people wielding the knives? You can bet one thing for sure... You won’t hear a single progressive or anti-Second Amendment crusader make this point: If you ban guns, crime increases.

The wolves are the only ones that benefit. Thankfully we live in a country of sheepdogs.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
