I'm a long time listener of Becks, and a 2+ year subscriber to The Blaze (I started back when it was GBTV), so I'm no unbiased reviewer. And yet, I've a hard time thinking of how you could subvert Beck's arguments in this small book. It's approached in a question answer format, offering common objections to guns from liberals and republicans alike, and then tearing those arguments apart piece by piece to show how they're either unfounded, impracticable, or simply flat out unconstitutional. Beck then spends some time at the end of the book looking at what HAS actually changed in the past 30 years that has contributed to the rise in children shooting children, and gives families some action steps to help regain the hearts of their children.
I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone, liberal or libertarian. It's concise, thorough, and well supported positions and arguments will be valuable to anyone who reads it.
The narrator does an amazing job of communicating the gravity of the subject matter, without sounding at all grave or sedentary. His voice and candor actually reminds me a lot of Beck's, which fit the tone of the book perfectly.
Please educators of our young.....read this book with an open mind and recognize how political your administrators are and how their ideas have been shaped for decades. Ultra-liberal views in education is not the answer.
Facts are presented in this book that debunk the arguments gun control proponents love to use! Great book if you want the facts to put gun control supporters in their place...
Great information, well researched with foot notes to go look at original documents.
Absolutely, didn't want to stop listening.
Tired teacher. That is, REtired teacher.
The bottom line is Gun Control is less about guns and more about control. Get smart, America. Don't let them infringe our second amendment rights to keep and bear arms. It is unconstitutional, and if it happens, where do we stop as far as letting them take our freedoms away? It won't end well.
"Control" is loaded with facts and factual anecdotes that clearly point out the flaws in the arguments for "Gun Control", showing that "Gun Control" has little to do with guns and much to do with control.
I don't have any friends who wouldn't want to hear what Beck has to say.
This is non-fiction. I'm sure there are some characters in there, but I don't have a favorite.
I'm sure he is a great guy and does a wonderful job reading bedtime stories to kids. You need to turn the volume up when recording this soft spoken guy. I only listen to audiobooks while I'm driving. My Camry does not have a lot of road noise, but I cannot hear him. I can hear Beck just fine.
Facts vs agenda fueled lies.
Lowell is a bit flat for me.
Lies te elites told you about guns...
audio books are Theater of the Mind when done right. They lift words from a page written by an author and transport you into another world
Yes as it is really a fundamental layout of not only why we have the 2nd Amendment right but what freedom is about
Guns, Crime and Freedom as they both try to layout why freedoms are so important and why it isn't just about guns.
They both did an amazing job laying out the case why gun control doesn't work as law abiding citizens are not the ones that should have to give up there rights when they are not the ones breaking the laws
Just knowing that we all have that right to defend our freedom and our lives.
This book gives you a solid reason why your rights are important for the law abiding citizens
