On Tuesday’s Mark Levin show, It’s more important than ever to discuss the foundational principles of American civil society — and we need to fight back against the Left’s constant attacks on constitutional government and individual liberty. Liberty, individualism, and the history of the Bill of Rights and the Second Amendment are almost never discussed in the gun control debate. There are constant efforts under way to redefine this country and redefine what liberty means.The debate over guns isn’t a debate over guns. It’s the debate over liberty. Also, the socialist idea of Universal Basic Income is now supported by 48% of Americans. We now have more and more people who embrace socialism over capitalism. Can you imagine the economic impact of this? Can you imagine the control the government would have over the individual, who would rely almost one hundred percent for his or her sustenance from the government? Later, how is it that all great minds in history missed the fact of climate change? Only recently with the advent of the Bill Clinton and Al Gore administration that it suddenly became the case we had global warming. Over the last 40 years we have gone from global cooling to global warming to climate change and if you don’t buy into it you are a denier. The conceit of the left to believe that they have power to alter the Earth and universe is the same conceit they use to try control and alter characteristics of individual human beings. Finally, Rep Brian Mast is in a district in Florida which is Republican enough that he does not have to do what he is doing, which is trying to ban assault weapons. It is troubling but shows you what happens when people come to Washington. CNN’s Alisyn Camerota would never bring on a handicapped veteran who was in favor of the Second Amendment. The Mast interview with Camerota is disturbing because we now know there are other Republicans who are willing to defy their constituencies.

On Monday’s Mark Levin show, Why do politicians keep talking about the NRA? This issue is about our liberty. We are chasing the phony issue of gun control and conservatives are on the defense as if we were responsible for the Parkland shooting. We are being bullied into our positions. If you don’t have a foundation based on the Bill of Rights and the Second Amendment, how can you defend it? For President Trump to play into the left’s agenda and use their arguments for gun control is outrageous. The lack of rationality in this debate is unbelievable. Andrew Pollock who lost his daughter in the Florida shooting is the voice of reason when he explains we need to discuss school safety not gun control. We are insisting that federal, state and local governments protect our children and secure schools. Finally, when you put tariffs in place you not only drive up the cost of goods, but you don’t see what happens down the economic stream when prices go up. There are already 12,000 tariffs in this country.
On Friday’s Mark Levin show, We now have the very government the Founders were concerned about because of the erosion of American liberties that is coming as a result of a propaganda campaign against gun ownership by the Left and the media. The same Washington that undermines the US military is the same Washington that refuses to adhere to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. We don’t look at the Bill of Rights and try to get the closest we can to its original meaning. Now it’s common talk among Republicans who want to prevent young men and women from purchasing a rifle. There are no studies that show young people are more likely to commit acts of mass murder than older people. Statistics don’t matter when you’re being railroaded and indoctrinated. The fact is, the FBI and the Broward County Sheriff’s Office failed to follow its own protocols when they were tipped off about the shooter. The FBI, blew it, the Sheriff’s office blew it and the deputy sheriff blew it. Every time the government entities screw up, a little bit of our freedom is lost. Also, the vast majority of people with mental health issues are wonderful and now they are all stereotyped. Just how far will some of these politicians go to eviscerate the 2nd Amendment? We have more gun control in this country than ever before in the history of this country. Later, Paul Manafort issued a statement maintaining his innocence. Robert Mueller and his team are trying to punish Manafort. The FBI charged into his home with guns drawn, which is something that should only be done to mobsters. This is an absolute abuse of power. Most of the men involved in this investigation have buckled and are looking for deals, but not Manafort. He should fight on.
On Thursday’s Mark Levin show, Charlton Heston explained that the Second Amendment must be considered more essential than the First Amendment. The Second Amendment is the first freedom that defends the rest of our liberties. The Left seeks the destruction of not only the Second Amendment, but the whole of the Constitution. We’re dealing with anti-constitutional radical ideologues. They don’t care about the history of the Second Amendment any more than they care about the history of the First Amendment. We cannot rely on the progressive Left, the media, Hollywood and tenured Marxist professors to protect our children. Also, the Florida Sheriff’s Deputy, Scott Peterson who was on patrol at Marjory Stoneman High school during the shooting, has resigned on Thursday. Video surveillance showed he never entered the school even though he knew the shooting was taking place. We are debating gun control while the FBI and Sheriff’s Deputy screwed up. In addition, President Trump is right about training teachers and other personnel, who are capable, in schools to protect our children. The anti-2nd amendment ideologues and radicals seek not only to impose thoughts about guns but about how we speak about guns. They make it difficult to discuss the wide array of life saving options that school officials and law enforcement can use to protect class rooms. Finally, Marco Rubio was brutalized at the CNN event and has started to buckle on gun control. We are going to add a law on top of law on top of law. Why are we always on defense on this when we are wrong and they are right?
On Wednesday’s Mark Levin show, Brian Mudd of WJNO fills in for Mark. We have a Second Amendment because it was a priority to the Founders of this country. We have the freedom of expression and the freedom to defend it, but this is no longer taught in schools today. Kids today have no basis to know why they are even free and don’t understand the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting, but protecting yourself and your liberty. If we are going to have a debate about gun control we need integrity, acknowledgement and open debate of the facts. If the debate is going to just state emotional arguments and non-facts, we will just get a bunch of falsehoods in return. Will more gun control reign this problem in? Even if you had total gun control, it is not going to stop criminals from breaking the law. Also, the police were called on Nikolas Cruz 39 times, and the FBI on 2 occasions had been brought into the fold through 2 tips on Cruz. The FBI had everything they needed before the Parkland and Pulse shootings and they happened anyway. There needs to be accountability.
On Tuesday’s Mark Levin show, one of the greatest dangers to this country is the media. We can’t get the truth to our fellow citizens; they decide what to focus on and what to ignore. There are very few stories on sheriffs in counties doing what needs to be done, putting trained armed individuals in schools. Also, it’s easier just to talk about gun control. The solutions that Washington DC comes up with are pathetic. Everyone wants an answer from politicians, yet these are the same politicians who screwed up healthcare, immigration, the dollar, and the debt. Later, there’s a Trump administration proposal to raise the age limit for purchasing AR-15 rifles from 18 to 21. These easy answers that brutalize these young people are unacceptable. According to FBI statistics, the vast majority of murders are committed with handguns, not rifles. So if the Second Amendment is going to be restricted for young people, where does it end? They can outlaw these bump stocks, they can outlaw these AR-15s at a certain age level, and it’s not going to stop anything. We would like to see leadership out of this White House and Republican Party that is serious and doesn’t just play chorus to the radical-left progressives. John Lott, President of the Crime Prevention Research Center calls in to talk about how banning and limiting AR-15s makes no sense. The left keeps proposing laws that have nothing to do with the mass shooting attacks that take place. After that, Paul Kengor, Professor of Political Science at Grove City College calls in to talk about Ted Kennedy collaborating with the Soviet Union to defeat Ronald Reagan. Kennedy had specific ideas in 1984 to stop the election of Ronald Reagan and even recommended that Yuri Andropov directly appeal to the American people and convince them the Soviet Union had peaceful intentions. Finally, we have pretend historians in this country who rate Barack Obama as the # 8 greatest president in American history. What did Obama do to get this status?
On Thursday’s Mark Levin show, We need to ignore the usual hysteria from the leftist politicians. They do not have the experience or knowledge to provide solutions. Evil killers do not represent America. Instead, we should look to the heroism of Aaron Feis, the high school football coach who sacrificed his life to save his students. The answers to this mass shooting in Florida is not in Washington but are local. We can’t control all the evil in the world, but we can do some things. How about protecting our babies in the womb and protecting our babies who go to these government schools? How about we get into the safety, health, and protection business? If we want to protect our children in these public schools, we need to put people in these public schools who can protect our children. Later, the Democrats are all out special pleaders for foreign countries and their citizens. Now they are demanding amnesty for people here illegally and for people who may come here in future.
