FACT CHECK: Do gun bans work? Ask the UK

You already know your Second Amendment rights are under attack — perhaps now more than ever. The progressive left is pushing the same anti-gun narrative they’ve always used, only this time they’ve got a bunch of “untouchable” kids, who’ve survived an attack in their own school, to deliver the message for them. Why? Because when it comes to radical change and transformation: emotion is king.

One of the perennial favorites among anti-gun arguments is that mass shootings simply don’t happen in other “advanced” countries. In the words of former President Barack Obama, “The United States of America is the one advanced nation on Earth in which we not have sufficient, common-sense gun-safety laws — even in the face of repeated mass killings…. We know that other countries, in response to one mass shooting, have been able to craft laws that almost eliminate mass shootings. Friends of ours, allies of ours — Great Britain, Australia, countries like ours.”

Time after time, the examples of Australia and the UK are used as proof-positive by these anti-gun crusaders. But what are the real statistics? If a gun-ban is really the cure for violent crimes, what are we waiting for?

On today’s show, Glenn breaks out the chalk board to give us the real gun-control-statistics, including the top 10 countries with the highest death rate from mass shootings, a timeline of Australia’s violent-crime-rate before, during and after they banned guns in 1996, and what’s happening in the UK since their 1997 gun-ban.

“Like Australia and other countries, the UK banned guns in the late 90’s,” said Glenn. “They did it in response to a mass shooting. But the question is, did it work? According to the pro-gun-control lobby, it did. But here are the actual facts. Ever since law-abiding citizens were stripped of their ability to defend themselves, violent crime in the UK has gone completely out of control.”

Listen to Glenn explain in the video clip above.

YOU will be RESPONSIBLE for loss of rights if you riot

A new poster is circulating social media, calling for a record-breaking armed protest to take place across America on Inauguration Day. Here's Glenn's advice for those considering attendance: DON'T GO. No matter who is responsible for the poster or for any possible future chaos that may take place, the far left and the media WILL blame Trump supporters regardless of the facts. And because of that, if you attend and partake in rioting, you WILL be responsible for the loss of our rights that will come as a result. Don't go. But, listen to this clip to find out what Glenn thinks you SHOULD do on Inauguration Day instead…

Parler exec speaks out against ‘unfair’ Big Tech throttle

Big Tech isn't making it easy for organizations outside of the left's coalition to survive. Amy Peikoff is the Chief Policy Officer for Parler — the social media platform now throttled by Amazon, Apple, and Google. She joins Glenn to discuss the recent moves made against Parler and how the company is fighting to move forward: "We're doing everything we can to save civil discourse on the Internet. I promise: We're on it."

Can Frustrated Conservatives Learn from the Tea Party? | Matt Kibbe | Ep 92

The nation was shocked as the "Save America" rally in Washington, D.C., devolved into a siege of the U.S. Capitol. The day after, as heads were still spinning, Glenn sits down with Matt Kibbe, host of BlazeTV's "Kibbe on Liberty," to look at what led to this: Woke authoritarianism is in power, lockdowns are unending, and the Left has finally found out how to weaponize fear. The media is all too happy to watch the country burn, as long as the Left is holding the torch. But Glenn and Matt remember the lessons learned from the Tea Party, Martin Luther King Jr., and other movements that found success through peace. Conservatives and libertarians must find a path forward so we have more 9-12 marches, fewer stormings of the Capitol, and real change from those who believe they rule over us.

Here's how the left used COVID-19 to DESTROY us & our kids

COVID 19 was used to not only destroy businesses, morale, and education but to destroy us and our kids, too. The left is in control of nearly everything now, and they've used that power to make us feel alone. Glenn says he believes a miracle could happen to turn this great nation back towards the principles on which it was founded — BUT, we must turn back towards God first. Life DOES have meaning and tomorrow WILL be better.
