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

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
