    Gun toting Glenn

    July 27, 2009 - 12:28 ET

    GLENN: That's right, my friends. From behind my cardboard microphone, allow me to go out on a limb here for just a minute here. I think, theory, I think the media may be slightly out of touch and perhaps no more out of touch in any other area besides guns. To you guns are a constitutional right. They help, you know, protect you, your family, you know, those things. They're something to street with respect. You use them responsibly, they provide peace of mind. But the media lives in Manhattan or Washington D.C. or the little green bubble in Los Angeles. You know, these are the places where, you know, acquiring a gun is more difficult than, you know, looking like me and then acquiring a night with Carrie Underwood. You know what I'm saying? It ain't happening. To me guns do not kill people. To the media guns, not people, are responsible for killing people. They are responsible for all criminal activity in America. It's the evil gun. People who have guns are threats. They are not responsible citizens. But I've learned something else. I had an interview last week with Senator John Thune and I want to play the clip. It starts with audio from Michael Bloomberg and then my reaction. Listen carefully. This is TV last week.

    BLOOMBERG: Criminals will be able to contain conceal carry permits and walk the streets carrying handguns. They will be able to walk into bars in restaurants with guns, to be able to go to the movies with guns, and there will be nothing that our police officers can do about it.

    GLENN (ARCHIVED): I went to the movie this weekend with a gun and surprise, surprise, I didn't kill anybody.

    GLENN: Okay, this is what I said on television. Well, my gosh. It has set the liberal media on fire. Ahhhh! Ahhhhh! Ahhhh! That went made people go crazy. The Huffington Post headlined their story, Glenn Beck's Startling Post. Ahhhh! It was startling, wasn't it? I'm not sure exactly what was so startling about it but one, they can't imagine someone would be so unsafe to endanger American citizens by bringing a gun into their presence! This goes back to the leftist idea of what guns are. They're just a dangerous mistake by the founding fathers. They are in the Constitution for no other reason than for them to get powerful enough in the courts to remove them! That's all they're for.

    Theory number two, I guess they think it's some sort of mass paranoia: Look at Glenn Beck, he's such a crazy person. He thinks movies are dangerous. He thinks at some point maybe he was at Transformers. Maybe those Transformers will come out of the screen and attack him. Yes, I do have to apologize to the AMC in Philadelphia. When I first saw the Bourne Identity, I was just trying to help Jason Bourne. I didn't know that was I thought he was being attacked by a 40 foot head. I didn't know. I just shot blindly at the screen.

    This is again a fundamental misunderstanding of what guns are. For a lot of people in America with concealed carry permits, they're not something that you lock in your gun safe and pull out only when the alarm goes off and you hear glass breaking at 3:00 a.m. You conceal the weapon and carry it. Here's the shocking thing. Depending on where you live, you have probably been in a movie theater with guns every time you are in the movie theater. Ahhhh! Somehow or another you survived every single movie theater experience you had where someone had a concealed weapon. "Why are they concealing it? That's the real question. Why don't they just carry it out in the open?" If they would let me strap it to my leg, I would. You don't carry your gun only to situations that you deem dangerous in advance. "I don't know, honey, I normally don't take my gun with me but I have a feeling I may be robbed tonight." You carry your gun. 99.9 times you go out driving, you don't need a driver's license, but there is that off chance that something happens and the cop says, "Can I see your driver's license?" Oh, crap! You bring it with you every time. Sure, movies don't seem dangerous but neither did English class at Virginia Tech. Neither did immigration service center in Binghamton, New York. And could there been a situation that seems safer on the surface than the moments right after recess at an Amish school in Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania?

    You see, when I leave my house in the morning, I take all of my rights with me, kind of like... mine, those rights. And I take them the media, you know, they remember. Well, occasionally, you know, the freedom of speech or the freedom of press. They don't necessarily always remember freedom of speech, but they always remember freedom of the press, unless you're on Fox News. What they always forget, that whole freedom thing when it comes to Amendment Number 2.

    VOICE: That was even more overwhelming evidence that we are destined to be a bunch of socialist pigs very, very soon on the Glenn Beck program.

    Oh Glenn, that crazy radical. What's he doing carrying a gun? Doesn't he know that's dangerous and he's just 2 seconds from having that gun pop out of it's holster and kill everyone in the theater?

    I'll say this.....Glenn Beck's show definitely falls into the "entertainment" category, but then again, so does the rest of the "news" on the TV these days. And I am much more likely to believe the news from Glenn Beck than MSNBC or CNN.

    "You see, when I leave my house in the morning, I take all of my rights with me".

    THAT SHOULD BE HOW WE LIVE IN AMERICA.

    Gun owners are treated as a weird group who has to carry, or even own, a gun when there is absolutely no need for it because it is so dangerous. It kills people.

    Well as for me and my house, we will always be armed.

    How many criminals do you know with a conceal carry permit? If it's so easy then why even have the process?

    If a thug is going to rob you at gun point I don't think he's too concerned with being legal about carrying his weapon.

    Yes. It is an absolutely ridiculous statement.

    1) Criminals dont bother with background checks or give their fingerprints or answer questions about their 'good cause'.

    2) They carry their piece and walk around - even into bars in restaurants and to the movies with guns- they even walk around in gun free school zones and there is nothing that police can do about it...all the while good people obey the laws that have no power to restrict criminals from possessing or carrying a firearm. The criminals have a more complete ability to exersize 2A liberty than we do.

    I think it's a tie with Chuck Schumer for inclusion in next year's "365 Stupidest Things Ever Said" desk calendar:

    "If you walk down the street in New York ... you can have the solace of knowing that if someone has a gun on them they've gone through a rigorous police background check. After this bill, you can have no such comfort."

    I think he meant the people with misdemeanors that could still get a concealed permit, but he worded it this way to spook less knowing people. If he was to define "criminals" in this statement he would be laughed out of office. A typical politico stretching of the truth. I just look at him as another rich guy who is frustrated cause he can't have what he wants.I have young kids who do the same thing.

    I listen to Glenn's radio talk show every day if I can. And watch him on Foxnews every time I get the chance. He's a standup guy and if you read his books, he doesn't seem so crazy Ha!
    Good for Glenn, carry it in good health, Lord knows there's plenty of idiots that would love to hurt him.
    ‘‘Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.’’ Thomas Jefferson

    He didn't open carry though. LOL. I have, funny I went to the outside window to buy tickets for a later show wearing shorts and a t-shirt so my firearm is very apparent. They waved me in to buy the tickets inside, never said a word about my firearm. So I have carried openly that time and 2 times since to that theater.

    I only had to read it once to understand that Bloomberg considers anyone with a gun to automatically be a criminal.
    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.

    But of course.

    Guncrime doesn't cause death. Guncrime IS death.

    Go back to my earlier posts....I do agree that he is SUPER anti gun..but he was stretching the truth here, really speaking about people with minimal problems. All in all he is in no way a friend of we who wish to carry!!

    Hmmm, I didn't have this take or milkmanjoe's misdemeanor idea...

    I thought Bloomberg was accidentally admitting that the gov't in general and NYC more particularly is too incompetent and/or corrupt to prevent convicted criminals from obtaining CCWs.

    I found that part of his statement particularly disingenuous where he stated that there is nothing that their police officer's can do about it. I have seen enough videos on the internet and news programs to know that generally speaking, the NYPD is unlikely to allow the law or constitutional rights to interfere with their intended actions towards the "civilian" population. Perhaps he meant that because of the payoffs to NYC judges, politicos and LEOs that there is nothing they could do about it. I think he should have been more clear for those of us outside of NYC who haven't drank the KoolAid.

    You have to understand the mind set of a liberal anti-gunner.

    Criminals carry guns therefore anyone that carries a gun is a criminal.

    I wonder how those liberal media hacks would react if they really considered just how many people are lawfully carrying firearms around everyday, virtually everywhere. I mean, they panicked because one man admitted carrying a gun in a theater. I and a few million of my fellow law-abiding citizens carries a gun every singe day.

    GLENN: Look at Glenn Beck, he's such a crazy person. He thinks movies are dangerous. He thinks at some point maybe he was at Transformers. Maybe those Transformers will come out of the screen and attack him.
    Okay Mr. Blomberg, criminals already walk on the streets WITHOUT permits because they don't care, then carry in bars, restaurants, etc. And if you want to stop them maybe you should end the revolving door at the courthouse and lock up bad people...and let us carry guns!

    And you never know...there's more than meets the eye
