Should 2nd amendment cover the blind?

GLENN: Here's something else that probably, probably won't get a lot of coverage and that is the students that are all around the country now in colleges that are wearing empty holsters on their waists. They're wearing empty holsters in protest that they're not allowed to carry guns on campus. I warn you guys, it's going to make you a target. I mean, oh, you're the evil hatemonger with the empty holster.

And Rudy Giuliani, just to let you know, he is so okay with your Second Amendment that he told a town hall meeting in Northwestern New Hampshire that you don't have to worry; you have a constitutional right; it is protected and bear and carry arms; it's the Second Amendment. If somebody disagrees with that, you have to get the Constitution changed.

It was actually, it was actually a question asked by a former police officer who is no longer a police officer because he was wounded in the line of duty and he's blind. Now, I'm a pretty big gun guy. I love the Second Amendment, but I'm pretty sure that if you're blind, you probably shouldn't have a gun. Just, I'm not -- you can convince me the other way. Let me go to Mountain Man Adam. Adam, biggest Second Amendment guy I know. Blind people, and I'm not talking about, well, I can't really drive at night. I mean blind people. Guns?

Giuliani: Blind Should Be Able to Carry Guns


'You have a constitutional right, that is protected, to bear and carry arms'

ADAM: Well, I think they have a right to own guns. I think that it falls to responsible use of guns.

GLENN: Okay, here. You have a right to own guns and you want to shoot somebody in your own house? I guess, I mean, you know, I can't take your right away to own a firearm in your own house, but you certainly are not going to get a right to carry it around in the streets. I mean, how are you -- you're blind.

ADAM: Yeah. And I think that again that falls with the responsible ownership. There are shooting sports for blind people where they actually shoot targets and they have a set of eyes so they can enjoy the sport.

GLENN: "Target over here, target over here, target over here. I mean, I don't think if somebody is going to do -- unless they have really squeaky shoes, if you're blind, you could probably move around. You know what I mean? Move? Maybe -- I mean, I'm just saying. As a blanket statement, as a blanket statement. I'm sure --

STU: Glenn, I didn't know that we -- I was reading the Constitution today. I didn't see the part that we take the constitutional rights away for disabilities. I didn't --

GLENN: I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Do you have a -- first of all, you don't have a right -- I want to make sure this is clear. You don't have a right, you know, it's not in the Constitution that you can drive a car, but we don't give blind people driver's license.

STU: Yeah, you're right.

GLENN: There's some things that you can't do.

STU: You are right, it's not a constitutionally guaranteed right. So that wouldn't apply here. I'm just saying if you want to take it away --

GLENN: Hang on. Let's take a vote.

STU: People with ADD shouldn't have -- let's just pick the ailment and decide what right you lose with that ailment.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Adam, you're blind. Should you have a concealed weapon permit? Should you be able to walk around with a gun? You're blind.

ADAM: No. Again I think that goes to responsible gun ownership and in order to have a concealed weapons permit, you have to qualify for it.

GLENN: If there's anybody --

STU: You qualify for it. Is that Thomas Jefferson?

GLENN: If there's anybody that -- you're telling me so you are for blind people having guns?

STU: No, I'm just trying to piss you off.

GLENN: All right, good. Dan, we should do a freak jury on this. Let's open up the lines. Are you for blind people -- again, if you're blind, you live in your house, I'm going to -- I'm not going to stop you from owning a gun in your house. Are you for that, Stu?

STU: I have no idea. Because I mean, in all seriousness, you know, I'm not really making that argument. Like, it doesn't seem sensible to me for blind people to have guns because you can see what you're shooting at. That's the --

GLENN: Blind people can -- you know, people, they can hear things and get in the general range. But you don't -- I mean, you don't know who's behind you, around there. Also you don't -- I mean, you've got to be able to have eyes.

STU: If it's in the Constitution, a guaranteed right to arms, you're able to arm yourself.

GLENN: Isn't this going to the common sense part of things?

STU: If they want to give it up --

GLENN: You just say, I mean, how about if I say I could put a talking device into a car that would be able to help people drive so they know where they are all the time, would you say, yeah, go ahead; Mr. Blind guy, go ahead, get behind the wheel of the car?

VOICE: And now, more solutions for the blind. Product Number 7, a car for the blind. (Car revving up) Computer: You're driving on pavement, you're driving on pavement, you're driving on pavement, you're driving on pavement, you're driving on pavement, you're driving on the white line, you're driving on pavement, you're driving on pavement, you're driving on pavement, you're driving on the sidewalk, you're driving on pavement, you're driving on pavement, you're driving on pavement, you're driving on pavement (crash), you're driving in the shopping mall, you're driving in the shopping mall, you're driving in the shopping mall, you're driving in the shopping mall (crash). (Car revving.) You're driving on pavement, you're driving on pavement, you're driving on pavement, you're driving on pavement. (Crash). That was a school bus.

This has been solutions for the blind on the Glenn Beck program.

GLENN: Wait a minute. In Texas?

STU: I don't -- I'm reading it right now. We're going now, you know, looking around for blind gun stories and there's one at least from December of last year where there's a representative from Texas who is introducing an amendment that would allow blind people to hunt game using laser sights. So like, the person standing next to you go, now! Like when the laser sight --

GLENN: See, hunting game is different.

STU: I mean, I don't --

GLENN: Hunting game is different. We're talking about -- we're talking about Rudy Giuliani, a guy who only okayed, like, 750 concealed weapons permits for the entire city of New York City, okay? Only 750 people were allowed to carry guns under Rudy Giuliani in a city of, what, 18 million? He's in New Hampshire and he says no one has a right to tell you you can't carry a gun to a blind guy! We're not talking about owning a gun. We're not talking about going hunting with a gun. We're talking about a concealed weapons permit so blind people can carry guns on the street. Rudy, what -- who are you? What happened? 

END TRANSCRIPT

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
