Glenn Beck's new book "Control"

I just picked up "Control: Exposing the truth about guns" in Costco yesterday. They are selling it in paperback for $8. Beck says he chose that format to get his message out as far and wide as possible.

It's supposed to be a fact-based book exposing the anti-gun and MSM's false messages about guns and the need for Govt control.

I'm only on page 8, but so far so good.

Anyone else reading it?

Got the book yesterday & will read the book this weekend. I like Glenn Becks style of putting facts first.

I read it.
Glenn Beck is a much better author than radio host.

Something that stood out to me was the stat he said about the NRA. How the NRA spent 2 million during the elections. 2 million? Is that all?! Where is all of the membership money going?

Just finished it last night. Excellent book. First 2/3 is about the absurdity of the gun control argument - nothing new to most in this forum.

The last part was most eye-opening to me - mostly about the effects of violence in media and gaming and its effect on the brain. After reading this, it made me really pissed off that brain-dead Biden's commission just paid lip service to violent video games.
