    I don't agree with a lot of what Glenn Beck says, but I do agree with him 100% on 2A issues. Today's interview with Chris Cox was awesome. A must read.

    I have to agree. His affiliation with CNN bothers me. It seems the older I get the fewer people I trust!

    I watched the first installment. He had the LA gov. talking about his bill to prevent confiscations. Glenn also made fun of the NY lawyers that want to ban references to the "2nd Amendment" in the upcoming court case. Not too bad of a segment. I'll try to catch the rest of them this week.

    I was let down by the fact that in his one hour show, less than 10 min. tonite was on 2A. We will see how the week progresses.
    Don't get me wrong, I am grateful that he is doing this.

    I've been a long time listener of Glenn Beck (started way back before he got into CNN) and I can tell you that he hasn't changed since joining CNN. If anything it's a step in the right direction for them.

    As for recent stuff, I haven't listened to him in a LOOONG time (about a year now) because of a change in jobs and less time driving.

    Anyway, props to Glenn for bringing up the 2A!

    I didn't 'discover' Glenn until he started doing the TV stuff for CNN. I like most of what he says and certinly give him props for taking the 2A to CNN's airwaves. I missed last nights installment but I'm gonna try to pay attention for the rest of the week. Having Louisiana's governer on last night, did he bring up the 'carry on campus' bill going through La.'s house?

    That says it all. When Glenn was about to go on CNN, he agonized a lot (on the air) about it, being in "the enemy camp" and all, but ultimately decided it was a good way to expose CNN listeners to the truth.
    I have listened to him for three or four years now, I think. His main video game problem is with Grand Theft Auto IV, I think. I, as a cop, pretty much have a problem with it, too. I also understand how some video games, with some people can cause desensitization to violence (see David Grossman's work) until some research can show me otherwise.

    Nope. No mention of that. It's a big enough movement, maybe later in the week.

    How about a three-year study by professors at Harvard Medical? Their findings are detailed in a new book that's getting almost no media attention. Glenn even interviewed one of the authors on his CNN a couple weeks ago and didn't let her get a word in edgewise. In my opinion it was one of the worst interviews Glenn has ever conducted. Their findings basically show that most children can play violent games without issue, but like you said, some are at more to being desensitized than others. It all comes down to personal responsibility in my opinion. Which Glenn has always claimed to be an advocate for. It's an M rated game. It's not for kids, and (despite media reports) hasn't been marketed to kids. If parents buy it for their kids, that's their fault and they have to deal with the consequences.

    Sorry for getting off-topic. I won't post here about this again. I just wanted to get the link to sheepdog.
