This is not meant for the regular Caturday post…rather the Overnight Open Thread, as you’ll soon see why:

Definitely not some parody of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, that’s for sure! OK, you know what to do!

    I posted on this earlier:

    Pittsburg Radio Host So Outraged By His Listeners Support For Gun Rights He Quits His Own Show…

    (Zip hates our ‘h,’ methinks…)

    Anyhoo here’s the gist.

    I heard this lib flounce on the air yesterday.

    Tim Benz leaves 105.9 The X Morning Show over gun control debate

    Tim Benz, co-host of the Morning Show on alternative rock radio station 105.9 The X, left the air Friday after arguing with listeners about his support of stricter gun laws.

    “There was a flare-up about gun control on the show, which included a good deal of flashback against the station,” Benz said. “I wasn’t able to walk away from the fight … (so) I decided to step away from the Morning Show.”

    The argument stemmed from a Pittsburgh gun shop’s recent giveaway of hundreds of rounds of ammunition, high-capacity magazines and an AR-15 military-style rifle on its Facebook page.

    Erik Lowry, owner of Pittsburgh Tactical Firearms, which bills itself as “America’s Largest Online Firearms Mall,” gave away the gun and ammo. He said he did not hear the show but heard about Benz’s decision.

    Benz’s comments on guns drew predictable reaction for this part of the country, Lowry said.

    “When you’re a morning show host in a town of blue-collar workers who love their guns and the Second Amendment, you’re going to (anger) a lot of people,” he said.

    Benz concedes he is passionate about the issue of gun control. He said his polarizing opinions seem to be misunderstood.

    I actually e-mailed the station last week after he promoted the MSNBC video purportedly showing pro-Second Amendment supporters “heckling” one of the parents of the Newtown slayings. (It had been heavily edited to achieve this affect.)

    I was pretty civil, and made clear that I’m sure he wouldn’t give me the same respect. I’d have never sent anything if he hadn’t misrepresented his “facts” in order to use a 30 second soundbite to make the entire political right look bad.

    He’s been doing it for weeks, throwing potshots around and not allowing any discussion.

    This wouldn’t have happened if he’d have stuck to talking about sports, girls, and beer.

    Went on a big rant though, and then MUSIC! In the AM! Imagine that!

    Apparently, before the flounce he posted this to his official station Facebook account:

    “Sorry to burst your bubble rich. I’m sure there is nothing you enjoy better than enjoying a good ole fashioned liberal conspiracy theory. But I dont run the facebook page. I did post the Fleury story and noticed your boyfriend Anthony taking a swipe at me. So I made the tragic mistake of reading on and caught your ramblings. To answer your question, I think Obama’s idea of flying drones over America is an awesome one…so long as the drone is targeting your house. If he blew you away he’d be doing all of us a favor. As for you Anthony, you calling me brainwashed is laughable and highly hypocritical. And thank you, sincerely, for the wusification line. You have put into text what I think is at the core of so many of these arguments…you equate owning a gun to being a tough guy. Ok tough guy. Cling on to your guns just like Obama said. Go ahead and keep proving his ignorant statement right. Grab your bushmaster and blow Bambi’s head off. Color me sufficiently intimidated by you manliness…oh, mighty gun toting bad ass.”

    May be just a dream, but if the stars align, it could happen. Also, ammo’s pretty rare, average $5 per round. That’s an expensive Bang. Interesting reloading options, but still not cheap.

    Looks like a nightmare.
    May I suggest a Springfield Armory XDM 45 AUTO?
    You can convert it to a 460 Rowland with 300 bucks and no tools (ported kit), then switch back to shoot 45 AUTO.

    Speaking of weapons grade stupidity:

    Outrage of the Week: Jesse Jackson Claims Semi-Autos can “Blow Up Railroads”

    This week’s outrage comes to us courtesy of the anti-gun Reverend Jesse Jackson. Rev. Jackson is not in the news as much now as he once was. When you do hear from him, though, his comments are still laced with his usual dose of hyperbole.

    That predictable pattern continues with Rev. Jackson’s recent comments on semi-automatic firearms.

    According to an article appearing on TheBlaze.com last month, Rev. Jackson believes that semi-automatic firearms must be banned because they could “shoot down planes” and therefore constitute a risk to national security.

    The Blaze ran a follow-up story debunking the claim, but that didn’t seem to deter Rev. Jackson, as this week he boldly declared that, in addition to shooting down planes, semi-automatic firearms could also be used to “blow up railroads.”

    “You know that these weapons can shoot down airplanes, they can blow up railroads. This is really a whole national security issue,” Rev. Jackson said in a recent interview on Fox News. Blow up railroads? What in the world is he basing that claim on?

    @ Da_Beerfreak:

    Jackson was yapping about how the guy in Aurora was “right next to the airport fence” and “could have shot down an airliner.”

    Leaving aside the stupidity of believing that a semi-auto AR-15 is going to shoot down an airliner, that theater is at least 10 or 12 miles from the airport. Maybe nobody told Jackson that they built a new one back in the mid-’90s that’s 10 miles north of I-70.

  22. 22 | February 10, 2013 3:36 am

    That Auto-mag is definitely a collector’s gun, not a shooter. I briefly owned a collector’s gun a year or so ago (a Ruger Speed Six in .357 mag, full Class B engraving, then polished, never fired), but as soon as I could, I sold it to an actual collector. Nothing wrong with collecting, but I can’t afford it and don’t have any proper room for displays.

    And BTW, if your Ruger 10/22 isn’t accurate at reasonable ranges, you need to find out why and get it fixed. They are not inherently inaccurate, even though they are not bench rest rifles.

    I have 2 antique firearms, although not particularly collectible. One is a Nickel plated 1906 Hopkins & Allen Safety Police breaktop .38. The safety police was in a class then known as a “suicide special” as they were cheap and commonly used as a weapon of “last resort”.

    The other is a 1917 Amberg K98 Mauser. Again, not particularly collectible as they were made by the 10′s of millions. I suppose the one I have is a little more unique as it is stamped with the royal crest of Kaiser Bill. Actually, they both belong to my wife. the H&A was her grandfather’s and her dad brought the Mauser back from Europe after WWII.


  29. 29 | February 10, 2013 9:08 am

    Hmm. Nothing old here. Oldest gun I still own was probably manufactured in 1975 (I could check.) I have some old-fashioned, but none that are actually old, much less early 20th or 19th century.


  30. huckfunn
    30 | February 10, 2013 9:17 am

    @ Mike C.:
    Funny thing about the Hopkins & Allen. When we brought it home after her dad’s funeral, I promptly bought a box of .38 and put about 20 rounds through it. That was about 20 years ago. I’ve done more research on it, and from what I’ve picked up in various forums, using modern smokeless powder rounds could result in “catastrophic failure”. Gee, I wonder what that means? Glad I didn’t find out.


  31. 32 | February 10, 2013 9:28 am

    @ huckfunn:

    Yup. Those old heirloom pieces need to be kept as exactly that. Shoot the modern ones. I have a BiL who has several original Sharps, Ballards and Hepburns, but he stopped shooting those in BPC competitions and now shoots a .40/60 Hepburn repro. Which cost more than any of his originals are worth. But it’s made with modern metals and machining and is fully capable of taking smokeless powder loads, much less the BPC rounds he shoots in competition. He’s got a fair number of original percussion and flintlocks as well, plus a few dozen old but much more modern rifles.

    The oldest gun I have is an old Side-By 12 Ga. Spanish rip off for an American importer. Good upland game gun!

    “The oldest thing I have that I bought” -- now there’s an interesting concept. I’ll have to think on that one. Bought new or bought as an antique at time of purchase? I have a small map that was printed in 1762.

    Actually, the oldest gun in the house is an OLD Stevens 311 Side-By 12 GA. that was my fathers and is older than I am (which puts it a week or so younger than dirt). Technically it is not mine, it is merely in holding until my Son can drive out here or I can drive to NC (not on business) so it can be delivered to him. Dad was pretty explicit where his and Moms guns were to go!

    Of course Moms go to her Granddaughter so it is in the same status.

    Big Surprise: MSM Pimps For Obama Gun Control; Pro-Gun Control Stories Outweigh Stories Respecting Second Amendment Rights, 8-1

    At next week’s State of the Union Address, President Barack Obama is likely to continue his ongoing push for more gun control. It’s a push first spurred on by Obama’s gun control allies in the liberal media. In the wake of the horrific school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks quickly moved to exploit the tragedy to push for more gun control legislation while mostly ignoring solutions that respect gun owners’ Second Amendment rights.

    MRC analysts reviewed all 216 gun policy stories on the Big Three networks’ evening (ABC’sWorld News, CBS Evening News, NBC Nightly News) and morning show programs (ABC’s Good Morning America, CBS This Morning, NBC’s Today), beginning with the evening of the shooting through January 17, the morning after Obama made his speech surrounded by children who had sent him letters pushing for more gun control.

    The results show staggering imbalance:

    ■ Stories advocating more gun control outnumbered stories opposing gun control by 99 to 12, or a ratio of 8 to 1.

    ■ Anti-gun soundbites were aired almost twice as frequently than pro-gun ones (228 to 134).

    ■ Gun control advocates appeared as guests on 26 occasions, compared to 7 times for gun rights advocates.

    Yes, WE’RE the hearttless bastards, we know.

    Schakowsky accused Carson of using political correctness, rather than fighting it: “Well, I think that there’s a political correctness that he was trying to use to appeal to a conservative audience,” she said, shaking her head. She went on to criticize Carson for making a “political speech” in front of Obama and in a specifically religious context.

    I think it’s really--not really an appropriate place to make this kind of political speech, and to invoke God as support for that kind of view. But I think of most of all the kind of message that he was giving shows a real empathy gap with where the American people are right now, and I think it’s reflective of where many of the Republicans and Tea Parties are right now, that we need to have an economy that works for everyone.

    Barack and Michelle Obama “Heartbroken” Over Death Of Chicago Teenager

    A handwritten note from President Obama to the family of a Chicago teenager gunned down near the president’s South Side home pledges to press on to end future incidents of gun violence, further indication the White House hopes to use the murder to rally support for new restrictions on arms.

    First Lady Michelle Obama was in attendance at the funeral, as were Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and Valerie Jarrett, senior adviser to President Obama. According to the Tribune, the first lady met privately before the funeral service with over two dozen of Pendleton’s friends and classmates, and separately with members of the grieving family.

    The first lady’s attendance was seen both as a sincere attempt to console the family of the slain girl — one of 42 Chicagoans murdered last month — and to rally support on behalf of a package of new gun controls unveiled by the White House last month.

    1. Ban all semi-automatic rifles that accept detachable magazines.

    2. Ban possession of high-capacity magazines.

    3. Ban “bullet button” conversion kits.

    4. Bans shotgun-rifle combinations.

    5. Universal registration of all guns.

    6. Background checks on ammunition.

    7. Regulating gun loans.

    8. Prevent prohibited individuals from living in homes with guns.

    9. Cracking down on people who can’t own guns legally but do anyway.

    10. Required safety training for handgun owners.

I would think it hard to compormise the actual web site unless someone has grabbed the login credentials. If that was the case he need to shut the site down and rebuild it with a new account. Or it has compromised ad networks. Once compromised groups of hackers evaluate it not individuals. And they set up pretty sophisticated attempts to phish visitors. In Yon’s case I would think he would be the target of muslim hackers. And I don’t recall him as updating his site a lot.

    Feinstein thinks Drones are a bad idea because they violate the intent of the constitution. If she respects the intent that well she should be pro gun. If she is only a fair weather friend to the American Revolution she need to get out of office.

    Union: Obama Proposal To Increase Pay For Federal Employees Not Enough, “Absolutely Unconscionable”

    The president of the American Federation of Government Employees says a one-percent increase is “absolutely unconscionable.”

    The head of the largest federal employee union said Saturday that President Obama’s proposal to increase pay for federal employees by 1 percent was “absolutely unconscionable” and “simply not enough.”

    If you don’t like it, you could always go work somewhere else…

    @ 69 brookly red:Most government workers are just glad to have a job and don’t care about the increase. One could close all non emergency govt offices on Fridays year round and no one would notice. Especially with all the online services these days.

    I’D be a “prohibited individual” if I lived in CA, and by virtue of that I’d not only not have access to Second Amendment protections — I’d prevent anyone with whom I lived from having them as well.

    Interesting factoid: Until 1968, there was no “Prohibited” class of citizen with respect to firearms ownership. The only American citizens prohibited from owning a firearm up until the 1968 Firearms Control Act, were those who were physically in jail or prison, and that right was returned to them upon their release from custody.

    My answer to that is simple. If you are wooried about someone being able to get a gun, you shouldn’t be letting them out of prison in the first place. I have no problem with a sentance of life without parole for rape, murder, or even armed robbery. For real, serious crimes you should lock them up[ and throw away the key. The problem is that today so much is a felony crime. Martha Stewart is a “Prohibited Person” based on the ’68 GCA. Are the Feds really worried that Martha Stewart will get a gun? There ae more important things that the Federal Government shoudl be concerning themselves with. They get away with it because Republicans want to appear “tugh on crime”, and Democrats never met a gun control law they didn’t like.
