Larry Pratt is the executive director of Gun Owners of America.

Larry stopped by the Crosstalk studios once again to bring listeners an update on Second Amendment rights and the methods being used by the opposition to affect change.

One point discussed included troubling legislation out of New York that would permit the seizing of guns because someone is concerned about them. Larry noted that this is not only an offense against the Second Amendment but also the Fifth Amendment because there's no due process. It's also a violation of the Fourth Amendment because it wouldn't require going to court to have an adversarial proceeding and have a judge and/or jury determine that seizing of the guns would be the proper course of action due to the possibility that this person is a danger to himself/herself or others.

In another case, Bill Gates and other billionaires are bankrolling a controversial gun control initiative that will appear on the November 4th ballot in the state of Washington. Initiative 594 would criminalize any handing over of a firearm to anyone. That includes a son, a neighbor or even a roommate. This means that if you were hunting with your son and you wanted him to hold your gun so that you could tie your shoe laces. the handing over of your gun would make both of you felons under this initiative.

At what point does safety through legislation become control? You decide when you listen to Larry as he comments on the latest news affecting gun owners across the nation.

Guest: Ken Ham

Listen: MP3| Order

Ken Ham is president, CEO and founder of Answers in Genesis and the highly acclaimed Creation Museum. Ken is a biblical apologist who gives presentations all over the world on the reliability of the Bible and how compromise over biblical authority has undermined society and even the church. Ken is the author of numerous books including, “The Lie: Evolution,” “Already Gone,” “Already Compromised,” “Six Days: The Age of the Earth and the Decline of the Church” and is general editor of the New Answers Series Volumes I-IV.

This Crosstalk takes a look at the books that make up the New Answers Series Volumes I-IV. The story behind these books goes back to the 1980's when Ken would go on tour to the U.S. to speak on creation. He found that no matter where he traveled, people asked basically the same questions. In other words these books, (that are the four largest selling creation apologetics books in the world) provide answers to the top 130 questions Answers in Genesis is continually asked.

While Ken is the general editor, he lists the names of numerous experts in creation science, engineering and more that lend tremendous credibility to this project.

These are wonderful for pastors to develop sermons and bible studies, youth pastors can teach young people specifics regarding creation, parents can use them for family devotions and they are great to give to skeptics or as Christmas gifts.

You'll hear Ken's thoughts on global warming, homosexual marriage, the gap theory, the shape of Noah's Ark and much more when you review this edition of Crosstalk.

Guest: Twila Brase

Listen: MP3| Order

Twila Brase is President of the Citizen's Council for Health Freedom and is a certified public health nurse. She provides a daily commentary on the Health Freedom Minute and has provided testimony before legislative bodies. The Citizens Council for Health Freedom supports patient and doctor freedom, medical innovation and the right of citizens to a confident patient-doctor relationship.

The Emergency Health Powers Act was developed on a federal basis for 3 years before 9-11. It was a model piece of legislation and different states agreed to pass different parts of it. 40 states have these powers including quarantine, isolation, commandeering of private property, engaging the National Guard to enforce the law, forced treatment examination testing and more. Some of this can be done without a court order or by obtaining a court order after you are detained.

Obviously this act broadens state powers way beyond the scope of basic societal health concerns but even at that level it gives authorities the ability to determine which hospitals have certain types of life saving equipment or medications.

Twila also presented her views concerning hospital preparation for Ebola, the spreading of this disease, how our nation should be responding to this outbreak and much more.

Vic began this edition of Crosstalk by noting yesterday's Supreme Court ruling that allows for same-sex marriages in many states. This progress by the homosexual community didn't happen overnight. Preparations were made for this a generation ago or longer with people teaching values that are contrary to Christian biblical values.

The acceptance of transgenderism appears to be in the planning stage as some in our society are seeking to swiftly and subtly introduce pro-transgender policies into schools. For example, in September the personnel committee at Sparta High School in Sparta, Wisconsin, voted unanimously to create a gender identity policy that gives boys who identify as girls the right to be involved in girls gym classes, participate in girls intramural sports and the ability to use the girls locker and rest rooms. The school board tabled the matter until next Tuesday (October 14th).

Vic cited a Williams Institute (at U.C.L.A.) study indicating that the estimated transgender adult population of the U.S. is at .3% (three-tenths of one percent). This means that out of the student population at Sparta High School, less than 3 students are likely to consider themselves as transgender In other words, there is no historic precedent or statistical basis that points to a great need for such policies. In spite of this, there are those who contend that such policies are needed for those individuals who claim to have a deep seeded sense of a different gender at any given moment.

Have you examined the curriculum that your children deal with on a daily basis? Do you attend PTA meetings? Have you run for open school board positions? These are things to think about as Vic looks at this crucial topic and how it's also affecting communities in the states of Kentucky, Minnesota and Nebraska.

Guest: Mat Staver

Mat Staver is the founder, president and general counsel of Liberty Counsel, an international, non-profit litigation, education and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life and the family. Mat is also Dean of the Liberty School of Law.

According to Mat, last year in a 5-4 decision authored by Justice Kennedy, the U.S. Supreme Court issued the Windsor case with respect to the federal Defense of Marriage Act. Mat feels that decision was like throwing a lighter on a can of gasoline to burn up marriage. So as states across America have been striking down marriage laws due to last year's case, now the Supreme Court has decided it's going to stand on the sidelines while marriage 'burns' because they don't want to hear marriage cases dealing with the states of Virginia, Oklahoma, Utah, Wisconsin and Indiana.

This means that the lower court decisions remain intact for each state. The number moves from 19 states that recognize so-called same-sex marriage to 24 with six more states likely to follow.

Mat also shows from history why a governor or attorney general doesn't have to comply with what's taking place in their state; the harm that exists in allowing same-sex marriage; why silence is not an option on this issue; the tragedy of gender confusion and much more.
