Fox News commentator Bill O’Reilly is a populist, not a conservative. As such, O’Reilly has demonstrated his willingness to throw gun owners under the proverbial bus on numerous occasions. For example, he strenuously defended a state’s “right” to ban and, yes, confiscate firearms during a declared emergency. O’Reilly’s not-so-evil twin, Glenn Beck, is also soft on gun rights. At the NRA Convention in 2012, Beck told TTAG that he doesn’t support Constitutional carry because “we’re not ready for it yet.” That said, I love watching the dynamic duo’s dynamic when they share screen time . . .

OMG! Detroit Cops Hunt Explosive Ammo! OMG!

“Brandon James was in for quite a shock Tuesday night,” myfoxdetroit.com reports. “He says he went to bring in the garbage bins when he realized his daughter’s car, just recently driven in from Colorado for Thanksgiving, had been stolen – right out of their Ridgewood Street driveway on Detroit’s west side. Inside the 2013 Nissan Ultima was one thousand rounds of exploding ammunition.” Holy gang bangers go BANG Batman! Exploding ammo! “Police treated this incident as a high priority; the massive amounts of explosive ammunition is said to be armor piercing.” Armor piercing exploding ammo? Now that IS a serious sitch. “In a matter of hours police located the vehicle only three blocks away, but it was up on blocks. The wheels and rims were gone – and so was all of the ammunition.” The po-po absolved Mr. James’ daughter of responsibility but the Bat Signal is up. As in BS. [h/t Knuckles]
