this is now on Glenn Beck's The Blaze

This Ben Swann vid is now posted on The Blaze. Yes it was my turn today to go to the blaze and report back to DP.

Beck just makes me sick. During the run for the presidency Beck never once posted any Ben Swann vids to his blaze site - now the election is over and this one pops up on his site.

Beck is so dishonest!!!


How many individual, U.S. crimes per year are prevented

as a result of private gun ownership? Just as important is the answer to the question, how many tyrants are neutralized as a result of private gun ownership? Certainly, not Britain's monarchy nor all of Europe's kings and queens and princes and princesses, and the numerous dictators about the globe. Historically, and present day, the problems of the world are the work of these types, all of whom are gun grabbers. Also, socialist/communist societies are merely to placate the masses, such that, the powerful few, also gun grabbers, remain in power.


We will always back you!!!


Bravo! Go Ben!!!

I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war. Ps 120:7

Is it worse to be killed by a gun?

What is so evil about being killed by an AR with a large capacity clip that makes it so much worse than being bludgeoned with a bat?
Sure, Britain may have had 58 GUN murders last year, but England, Wales, and Scotland had a total of 691 murders for 2010. Fifty years ago, when the British had private gun ownership, the murder rate there was half of what it is now. By getting rid of privately owned guns, the positive effect on murder in Britain has been zero.

fox19's streaming is buggy. Don't know why they stopped putting them up on the youtube.

whats up with the weird video

whats up with the weird video player and the commercials?

Dear P. Morgan,


Your friends,

The real world.

P.S. Silly red coat, guns are for good people.

If ignorance is bliss, Washington DC must be heaven.

I have to echo the sentiment of others here

I am quite sure when you take out gang related incidents - the number drops greatly.

And frankly I am getting to the tipping point with this crap. We have a sitting president and AG who are both resposible more thousands of military weapons getting in the hands of serious criminals. We can talk about taking away legal guns when these two are rotting in jail.


That is the email address for the General manager at the station where Ben works.
I just sent him my thank you note, hope you will do the same.
B-b-b-benny and the facts - that is the best comment on here so I am repeating it - LOL!

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Thanks Ben - Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Piers...


WE NEED BEN AS THE liberty Movement spokesman

Or at least one of them!!! At least I know he won't act like Alex did. I listen to Alex daily, I'm embarrassed of Alex's delivery in the MSM. We need BEN SWANN ON RADIO SHOW TOO!!!!

First rate journalism!

Thanks for front-paging it!

Ben Swann should go on pirece morgan

to fact check his arse.

It's Piers Morgan conalmc

just saying..

I wonder how many gun related

I wonder how many gun related homicides are related to the war on drugs and gang violence? Also, how many gun related homicides are occurring in gun free zones? Then, of the remaining, how many are instances where the shooter is on some psychotropic drugs like prozac?

Great questions

I would venture to say that half of all gun violence is related in some form or fashion to the long running War on Drugs and the inner city warzones it has created in America. There is a reason you don't see bootleggers with Tommy Guns anymore, stupid Prohibition was overturned!


Freedom - Peace - Prosperity

Bump +1 for Ben Swann

Excellent Segment..
