Glenn and Stu debunk the Left's latest gun lies after two Democratic congressmen admitted that they don't care what's standing in their way, whether it's the Constitution or the Supreme Court: They WILL take AR-15s away from Americans. And President Biden is right there with them, despite what he says about the "respect" he gives to "lawful gun owners." But Glenn has a feeling they won't stop at so-called "assault rifles"...
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: Okay. So let me just go through a few of the clips, before we get to the president's speech. Let's play cut three here. This is a -- this is -- this is a Democrat in Congress. I'm sorry. It's cut five.
David -- is it Cicilline, from Rhode Island. Listen to this.
VOICE: I don't think there's a single incident. And maybe there's one. But I've not found one. Of an assailant using an assault weapon that was stopped by a person with a gun. So this was a --
GLENN: Okay. Stop. Stop. Never been stopped!
All of them stopped, with a person with a gun.
STU: Every single one of them.
GLENN: Every single one. What are they doing Jiu-Jitsu?
STU: Well, there was that one that was stopped with the slingshot.
GLENN: Yeah. Remember that? Goliath came out with his AR?
STU: Yeah. The question is only, do you want the people with the gun to be there before the shooting starts, or after it begins? That is the only question here.
GLENN: By the way, this congressman should know. Now he's looked. He's looked very hard. And you have to go way, way back, to last Saturday. To find a guy who walked into a party with 40 people. He had an assault rifle. He wounds two police officers. And takes them out of commission. And a woman reaches into her purse, pulls out her pistol, and shoots the guy.
There's one. Now, that was really hard to find. Because, well, you know, a Democratic congressman wouldn't be reading the news from any source that would actually cover that. That just happened Saturday, one woman, private citizen, handgun, saved 40 people.
And here is -- here's the Congressman, the great congressman again. From Rhode Island. Who said this.
VOICE: So spare me the bull shit about constitutional rights. No, I will not yield. And I will not yield for my entire five minutes, so don't ask again.
STU: Oh, the passion. The total and authentic and genuine passion from these people is just incredible.
GLENN: Yeah. Well, let me show you some more. I mean, unbelievable passion. So passionate, that he had to read it. Here is Representative Jones on guns, cut 14.
VOICE: Enough of your thoughts and prayers, enough. Enough.
STU: Enough. See, I'm mad. That's why I'm reading this.
VOICE: You will not stop us from advancing the Protecting (talking over) Act today.
GLENN: Now, listen to this.
VOICE: You will not stop us from passing it in the House next week, and you will not stop us there. If the filibuster obstructs us, we will abolish it. If the Supreme Court objects, we will expand it. And we will not rest until we have taken weapons of war out of circulation in our communities. Each and every day, we will do whatever it takes to end gun violence. Whatever it takes. What we will do, is not fail the children of this country, the way that you have failed us.
GLENN: Okay. This is amazing. This is amazing.
We will do whatever we have to do, to take out guns, these guns, from circulation in our community. So get rid of the guns.
STU: Uh-huh. Not a purchase ban. It's removing them from circulation in the community.
GLENN: No. Removing them. And they will do anything. If there's a constitutional limit, we disregard it. If you try to stop us legitimately through the votes in Congress, or the Senate, we will override it. And we will abolish the filibuster.
STU: You left out the part of the script where he bangs his fist on the table there.
GLENN: Oh, yeah.
STU: Fist table. I'm sorry.
GLENN: And if the Supreme Court says it's unconstitutional to do that, we'll wipe them out. Wow. The ends justify the means. It's not just for radicals anymore. It's for everyone! Because seemingly, everyone in the Democratic Party is a radical.
So what did the very, very astute, together, wide awake president say in his speech last night?
Well, he came out into the east wing. And he walked down the red carpet that was all lined with candles. Now, I don't know if behind the flag, his lovely wife Jill was taking a bath. Surrounded by the candles. And rose petals in the water. It could be.
But it was a very beautiful and appealing image there, with the president by candlelight to talk to us about guns. And here he is. Cut ten.
VOICE: For God's sake, how much more carnage are we willing to accept? How many more innocent American lives are we --
GLENN: Okay. Hang on. I say 150.
STU: I would say 153. We're in the same ballpark. By the way, that's entirely the standard of this debate. Which is, we are just waiting for the exact amount of bodies. Until we adopt all of their policies.
GLENN: Right. What is it going to take for us to intellectually abandon the principle of the Constitution? What's it going to take?
STU: Right. It's not that we disagree or think you can solve in other ways, or think the Constitution is important.
It's that we haven't seen a high enough stack of bodies yet for us to change our mind.
GLENN: Yeah. And we don't really care. As long as they're killing children, Republicans don't care.
STU: Yeah, we won't care.
Here's the thing, Glenn.
Every time that you hear them say, we need to do something. Translate that to, we need to do exactly what we want. We have passed tons of laws since Sandy Hook. Yet they always say, we have done nothing. Because we haven't done the thing we want us to do. Federal-based legislation that takes people's guns away. Because they haven't done that, we haven't done anything.
Well, we have done tons of things. States have passed laws all over the country. Both on the pro-gun control side of this argument, and the pro-Second Amendment side when it comes to things like making schools more safe, as far as security and stuff. All that stuff has been passed all over the country. We've done tons of stuff, since these actions have gone on. We just haven't --
GLENN: Why are you avoiding the question? Just give me the number. Dear God.
STU: Enough is enough. Enough!
GLENN: Okay. Give me the numbers. 153.
GLENN: 153. That's the number from Stu. Remember, mine is 150. Once we see another 150. Then I will abandon all of my principles.
Okay. Next cut please. Here's what he wants to do.
BIDEN: Allows the gun sale to go through after three business days, even if the background check hasn't been completed.
GLENN: Stop. Stop. Why is that? Why does a background check, even if it's not completed after three days, why do they abandon that and give you your license? Why is that? That seems crazy, right?
No. No, it doesn't. When you understand why. A federal background check should take about 20 minutes. When Clinton was in office, it strangely took days. Days. And days and days and days and days. Sometimes weeks to get it done. When Obama was in office, what happened? Oh, my gosh. The -- the computers were all just jammed in Washington. They had outages. And it would take so long. We're trying. We're trying super hard. But we've got dial-up modems here. And we just can't do that background check.
STU: And I thought that was a little suspicious. Though, when you saw the way they launched Obamacare and the website. Maybe it was real. Maybe they just were that bad at the computer.
GLENN: Well, no. Because when Bush was in office, you could get it in 20 minutes. When Trump was in office, you could get it in 20 minutes. So what is this law that says, three days. And if you don't finish the background check, they get the license.
That is to ensure that the federal government doesn't do what states like New York does. Drag it out for months. Make it impossible.
That's why that's there. That's there to keep the federal government honest. It doesn't take more than 20 minutes.
Okay. Next, please.
BIDEN: For so many of you at home, I want to be very clear.
BIDEN: This is not about taking away anyone's guns.
BIDEN: It's not about vilifying gun owners.
GLENN: Gun owners.
BIDEN: In fact, we believe we should be treating responsible gun owners as an example of how every gun owner should behave.
STU: What about responsible gun owners?
GLENN: Don't walk while chewing --
BIDEN: I respect culture and tradition of lawful gun owners.
GLENN: Okay. Stop. Stop. No, you don't. No, you don't.
Lawful gun owners aren't killing people. Lawful gun owners are saving people's lives. I don't get the same respect. You -- you think you're treating me and my friends, who own guns, and are completely responsible. You think you're treating me with respect?
By telling me things like, you know, they just let these people -- they get them without even a background check.
You think you're treating us with respect by saying, you know, these guns blowholes into people. And you can't even recognize them. The DNA. Oh, you have to use DNA to be able to identify the bodies. Because AR-15s, which is now every semiautomatic weapon, they just -- they blow the faces off. People explode. And so you need to have a DNA test done, to identify the children.
Wow! Have we gotten that quick with DNA testing? Because the victims. You know, as soon as the parents are notified. And that usually takes, well, shorter than it takes Democratic states to count the votes on Election Day.
STU: People have absolutely no idea what they're talking about. And they say it with exclamation points next to it, to make it sound like they do.
GLENN: They are morons. Most of them are morons. There are those like Joe Biden, that know exactly what he's doing. There are those who are running the Democratic Party right now that know exactly -- they know what the truth is.
But they will tell you, that when we banned assault weapons, when we banned them. Well, I'll tell you, we saw the murder rate go down. No, we didn't. No, we didn't. Every study. Including the studies from the federal government show no difference was made. None.
You know, in Chicago, they have rounded up I think, what was it? 4,000 weapons. Here in the last year or two.
How many of them are legally owned? I would like to know. It just says, the number of weapons that have been used and confiscated because of shootings and everything else.
Why don't they tell us, were those legal or illegal guns?
Because that's where -- if those are legal, responsible gun owners. If they're all members of the NRA. And they've gone through all the NRA testing, well, then I'm wrong. But you're treating me, Joe, as if I'm the one with the illegal gun that is shooting kids and innocent people in Chicago or a school.
STU: We're going through all this stuff for the special tonight on Stu Does America. To debunk it.
GLENN: Really, really good special tonight. You need to see it.
STU: All the gun myths. One of the studies we came across, they looked at criminals. People who were arrested and in prison. And gun-related offenses. What they found was 2 percent of them had gone through retail sources. But 2 percent of the criminals, they got their guns from retail sources.
GLENN: So they went to a -- they went to a gun show?
STU: No. I bought a gun at a gun show. It seemed pretty retail to me.
GLENN: So I thought that -- oh, it must be they got it from a grandfather.
STU: No. Not a lot of borrowing from grandpa going on in the criminal world today. It's almost as if they don't care about your background checks. It's weird. But keep the border open. You can ban all these weapons. And pass all these new laws. But keep the Mexican/American border wide open and see what happens with guns.
GLENN: Yeah. Because drug cartel. They're not involved in drug smuggling. They're not involved in human smuggling. And they certainly -- they stay away from firearms. Okay? Especially those illegal ones.
