THE DAILY CALLER WILL GIVE YOU A GUN IF YOU FIND THEIR HACKER

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Ruby the Liberal (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: Think Progress

The conservative website The Daily Caller will be giving away an FMK 9C1 high-capacity 9mm pistol to whoever can track down the hacker that trolled the site with porn ads on Monday. The gun — which comes specially engraved with the Bill of Rights — will be presented to any reader who can turn over the hacker’s name, allowing The DC “to hold them responsible.” Less tech-savvy readers can also win a gun by providing the “funniest and most inventive ideas” on what Tucker Carlson’s right-wing website “should do with the hacker when we find him.”

He has provided the only entertainment that site has put out since it started.

Where do I go to get my gun?

8. An abridged bill of rights

For at least the 2nd amendment, they edited out that pesky 'A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State' part for their little pistol there.

9. I tend to think this kind of thing would make hackers want to hack them more.

It sounds like it is supposed to be read as a threat. But I'm not sure it'll be much of a deterrent. We'll see, I guess.

10. Better he should invest in employees and/or software

that specialize in Web security.

Remember when Norm Coleman's Web site got investigated because they didn't even take the simplest of security measures -- putting an index file in their root-level folders?

16. Hey, you gotta read about the gun!

Each FMK Firearms 9C1 pistol is engraved with the Bill of Rights to remind Americans about our inalienable rights, and pay tribute to those great leaders who have fought for our freedoms, while some ignoble ones have endeavored to undermine them.

If not, this seems a trifle irresponsible.

...be subject to a background check, just as if the recipient goes into a sporting goods store to buy a gun.

The winner must also not be disqualified from owning a firearm - i.e. must not a be convicted felon or domestic abuser, or have been discharged dishonorably from the military, or be in the country illegally, or have renounced US citizenship, or been adjudicated as mentally incompetent.

21. They don't have to post any kind of disclaimer. It's the law.

 

But I suspect that the site somewhere says the transfer will be done in accordance with all applicable laws, just to avoid dealing with uninformed people who get unrealistic expectations.

BTW the offer is posted on Google Docs, so you can be very sure it's been scrutinized by lawyers.
