Control: Exposing the Truth About Guns (Paperback)
When our Founding Fathers secured the constitutional “right of the people to keep and bear arms,” they also added the admonition that this right SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.
It is the only time this phrase appears in the Bill of Rights. So why aren’t more people listening?
History has proven that guns are essential to self-defense and liberty – but tragedy is a powerful force and has led many to believe that guns are the enemy, that the Second
Amendment is outdated and that more restrictions or outright bans on firearms will somehow solve everything.
They are wrong.
In "Control," Glenn Beck presents a passionate, fact-based case for guns that reveals why gun control isn’t really about controlling guns at all; it’s about controlling us. In doing so, he takes on and debunks the common myths and outright lies that are often used to vilify guns and demean their owners:
"The Second Amendment is ABOUT MUSKETS ... GUN CONTROL WORKS in other countries ... 40 percent of all guns are sold without BACKGROUND CHECKS ... More GUNS MEAN more MURDER ... Mass shootings are becoming more common ... These awful MASSACRES ARE UNIQUE TO AMERICA ... No CIVILIAN needs a “weapon of war” like the AR-15 ... ARMED GUARDS in schools do nothing, just look at Columbine ... Stop FEARMONGERING, no one is talking about TAKING YOUR GUNS AWAY ..."
Backed by hundreds of sources, this handbook gives everyone who cares about the Second Amendment the indisputable facts they need to reclaim the debate, defeat the fear and take back their natural rights.
I Dream Books
“#1 bestselling author and popular radio and television host Glenn Beck shines a spotlight on today’s culture of violence and provides practical, timely, and fact-based answers to the most commonly heard gun-control arguments.”
“I really enjoyed reading this book. I am a moderate liberal on most issues. If you talked to me a decade ago, I was all over the 'let's get rid of guns' movement. Now, not so much - especially after having had the security of my home violated.” – Amy Y., Fremont, Calif.
“The most important message in the book is that gun control is about the control and harassment of law abiding citizens while ignoring or excusing the actions and attitudes of law breakers … designed to intimidate us in to a false choice of surrendering our liberty for the illusion of safety.” – Mimi Steel, Castro Valley, Calif.
“… the book provides we readers with great answers to every stupid thing that has come out of the mouths of a gun-banning progressive-statists and their sheep followers over the last five months. If you've had any problems concisely voicing your unwavering stance on our 2nd amendment rights, this book will provide you with plenty of intellectual ammo to support your positions …” – A. Thomas, San Diego, Calif.
