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- but tragedy is a powerful force and has led many to believe that guns are the enemy, that the Second Amendment is outdated, and that more restrictions or outright bans on firearms will somehow solve everything.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:
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.

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
It's a clear, concise, fact based account of what the gun control battle is all about and indeed it is control but not of guns as many people think, but control of the people.
There isn't anything that I know of that compares.
I wouldn't change it. It's perfect the way it is.
This is a must read for everybody and should be on the top of every school reading list. It is a great history and civics lesson.
Glenn destroys "Controlist's" logic with facts and well cited research. If you believe in the 2nd Amendment then this is a must read book. Also, parents who have kids that play video games should focus on part 2 of this book for some eye opening (and frankly repulsive) look at what content is allowed in today's video games and the psychological impact these games can have on our kids! I'd give it 10 stars if I could!!
Finally a book that speaks the truth and crushes all the misconceptions and myths of Guns
Buy this book and join the NRA
Before listening to this audio, I would have considered myself a moderate who doesn't believe in banning guns, but at the same time doesn't believe in liberally handing out AK's along with unlimited ammo to any and all willing to wield them. BLASPHEMY cries Glenn Beck! There is no such thing as being moderate or trying to set limits to anything regarding this precious amendment.
Oddly enough, I bought this with the open mind and intent to be convinced. To take my views slightly further to the right if the opportunity presents itself. Beck is so immature and condescending in his arguments that I think he may have had a reverse effect on me. He constantly attacks, with unnecessary belligerence, all members of the press and other celebrities who take the other side of the argument. Even anyone who speaks out against automatic weapon bans is not spared his wrath. Poor Piers Morgan is mention with distaste at least 20 to 30 times in this book. Furthermore, Beck is unwilling to entertain any notion of limitation, using ludicrous arguments and extreme scenarios to validate his points.
One thing I am grateful for is that Beck presents ideas that I had never heard of or thought about. Apparently, there is an ongoing debate to limit magazines to 10 bullets. I liked this idea as why would anyone, in the name of self defence, ever need more without having to reload? Apparently, I am not at liberty to infringe on the God given right of unlimited continuous shots by asking this question.
Glen Beck could really benefit from a little more refinement and grace in his writing.. yes even while lobbying for an agenda he's seemingly willing to die for.
