New York newspaper faces
backlash after publishing

Fox News, by Staff

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 12/25/2012 6:09:05 PM

A local New York newspaper is drawing the ire of its readers after publishing an interactive map that shows the names and addresses of thousands of residents who have handgun permits. The online map was published by The Journal News along with an article under the headline: "The gun owner next door: What you don´t know about the weapons in your neighborhood." The newspaper obtained, and then published, the names and addresses of pistol permit holders in Westchester and Rockland counties through a Freedom of Information Act request. The article, in explaining the decision to publish the

Comments:
Expect more of this thuggery and intimidation as the LSM and White House garner forces against the 2nd Amendment. This may just be the beginning salvo, using a "small" publication.

Everyone responsible for the original article who owns no gun should have a sign in front of their home stating ´Gun Free Home´.

My guess is that the initmate personal details about the authors and editors will soon be available to one and all as a thank you gift from their fellow citizens who dod nothing but comply with the law.

In some states, the newspaper, publisher, and author would be criminally liable for a violation of firearms law. Interesting that no one has yet noted that the publisher and writer´s information has been placed on-line for all the world to see. (On the theory that "Sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander...). Just a little karma?

Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. Clearly they have not thought this through. How will they feel when the names, addresses, phone numbers, and as much personal information as some furious hacker can get his hands on concerning the reporters and editors and owners of the paper and their closest relatives are put up on the internet? Maliciously provoking law abiding citizens with guns. Deliberately angering patient men. Some plan they have there.

Why would I be suprised that a similar freedom of information request for welfare recipients, medicaid recipients and food stamp recipients would not be (1) requested by this newspaper and (2) made easily available by the local authorities?

Would this same paper ever publish a list of all the convicted firearms felons complete with their names and addresses?
Of course not. These people are always portrayed as victims, either explicitly or tacitly, and are therefore a protected class as far as the legacy media is concerned.

How do you get through the thick heads of those sanctimonious idiots that the publishing of this information is just an invasion of privacy to gun owners but, the real offense is to their neighbors who are, by omission, labeled gun free and open to predators. There´s a reserved place for these people.

Next they will be shouting down representatives from the NRA on News shows, oh already happening. They can Boycott Chick Fil a for not supporting gay marriage, Whose next to be boycotted. just like Jewish Merchants in Prewar Germany Welcome to the Police State. Waiting for Crystal Night.

Some people are concerned...That has as much credibility as the TV interviewer beginning a question with, "Some people say..." In many cases "some people" is nothing more than the interviewer. The article´s author has a permit. Fine. Include a residential address and an interactive map for him also. Their sanctimonious justification stinks. Aside from the potential consequences to individuals named, this is nothing more than harassment of a group that the newspaper wants to target.

Incredibly irresponsible and alarmist - but then, those Eastern tenderfeet have always been sissies afraid of their own shadows. Something in the water, perhaps? More likely, it comes from being ON the water, i.e. close to the Atlantic, where the most timid among our first immigrants hunkered down on arrival. Braver types moved steadily inland, over the mountains, following the frontier. The more pusillanimous clung to such safety and shelter as the towns near the coast could provide them. The gene pool suffered as a result. The problem is not new. Easterners were always on the side of the Indians once the frontier was at a safe distance. Lo! the poor Indian! Compassion was correlated with distance, especially from the scalping knife. And it is possible to make a strong case that Easterners with a mentality like the nitwits responsible for this latest stunt actually caused the U.S. Civil War with their militant abolitionism, which, among other acts, included underwriting John Brown´s raid on Harper´s Ferry. The same fanatical self-righteousness we find today was present then. Their motto has ever been fiat justitia ruat caelum: let justice be done, though the heavens fall.

The newspaper is basically equating gun owners with sex offenders, the only other group whose addresses are generally published anywhere. And, those houses without guns may not have them because there are young children in the house, so the sex offenders might also make some use of this list. Way to go newspaper.

I sent him an email - I thought it bad form and bad judgment to call his home # on Christmas day - kind of like the bad judgment involved in putting together a map of handgun permits just because they´re available under a FOIA request.

Don´t forget that in NYC you have to have a difficult to get and expensive permit just to OWN a firearm. A permit to CARRY one is as common as finding a Unicorn on your doorstep. Unless you are very wealthy or very connected.

Several blogs last night listed names, addresses, telephone numbers, Email addys, twitter accounts, photos of homes (and owners) and maps prominently. Search any of the above- it will all be there.

But I would note the homes that were "gun free" in my little black book for possible "targets"

19, if you want to blame Northeasterners for the Civil War I will take the blame (though I am originally from Oklahoma) - go ahead and defend slavery if you want. Then try to explain why blacks should be Republicans, and then wonder why they won´t listen to you, then try to explain why you´re not defective and I am. Sheesh.

We have a common enemy and you want to divide us and guarantee our failure. I´m not sure you are on our side really.

#19, those who pushed west were "easterners", those who didn´t want the late arrivals (liberals) to ruin their country. Remember who first fought the British at Concord and Lexington. It was EASTERNERS. Many of them later fled the influx of sanctimonious liberal types, and moved north and west to places where men could be free. It has finally got to the point where liberals are everywhere, and continuing to life hell for us conservatives. It wasn´t the timid who first came to America and became easterners, who you hold such contempt for. Try looking around this country and tell me where the timid live, like California, Oregon and Washington, all hotbeds of liberalism. On my map they are all located on the WEST coast.

Those idiots have informed our criminal element where to obtain weapons without going through the Man.

Be assured of this: someone on that list is going to return home from a trip and find his guns gone, guns he had hidden or stashed in a gun case bolted to the floor.

When this happens, I expect a lawsuit, and the FOIA excuse be damned. The most charitable thing you can say about the decision to publish is, they weren´t thinking.

For anyone interested - here is the info on everyone from the publisher of the newspaper down to the lowly reporter - who manages to own TWO weapons in a state that makes it almost impossible to own a concealed weapon - unless you are someone special.
Time to RETURN the FAVOR!!!
Editors of The Journal News are
Janet Hasson, 3 Gate House Rd, Mamaroneck, NY 10534. (248) 594-2197
Cyndee Royle, 1133 Westchester Ave., Suite N110, White Plains, NY 10604, 914-694-9300
Nancy Cutler 9 Woodwind Ln, Spring Valley, NY. (845) 354 3485

I´m having trouble trying to understand the mind process of this clown who came up with this idea. When you are granted permission by the FBI to legally carry a weapon, you have had to prove to them through all the public records that you have never done anything wrong other than park your car in the wrong place. To be allowed to obtain a CHL, you must be squeaky clean in the legal sense. Here in Texas we are proud to qualify for a CHL just to know that you are able to get one. Someone who intenionally questions this examination by the law seems to have some serious problems of his own and ought to be checked out himself. He´s got to be one creepy dude. Like throwing stones at an Eagle Scout. He´ll get his and it won´t be nice.

Firearms are valuable targets for theft. Someone who, "needs" a gun to commit a crime need only check the newspaper´s list.

Its like an advertising section.

aww yes the big sex offender gig where only 1 in a 1000 should have been investigated and maybe 1 of that number tried instead of print a name and tie immediate guilt -- no trial necessary-- forget the Constitution that also states serve your time and be free. The offender may have been an innocent 6 year old but who cared . The one where time served detainees are still in prison without recourse . Where angry women learned they won by default via false accusations. Then all lawyers wanted to follow Reno´s foot steps into big time based on a framing that jailed a 17 year old who was determined innocent about 5 years later. Sort of the current Zimmerman case reflux.

I can´t give credit to the following because I don´t know where it came from but thought it pretty funny. If a man wants to marry a man, let the man marry a man. If a woman wants to marry a woman, let her marry a woman. If people want to get abortions, let them get abortions. Eventually all the democrats will be gone. Think about it, newsapers would be obsolete in no time.

John Paul Stevens: It’s okay
for justices to take politics

Retired Supreme Court justice John Paul Stevens said it is appropriate for justices to take the political climate into account when thinking about retirement. "I think so," Stevens said when asked by George Stephanopoulos on ABC´s "This Week" if it is appropriate to take politics into account when deciding to retire. "It´s an appropriate thing to think about your successor, not only in this job," said Stevens, who retired in 2010 and was replaced by Justice Elena Kagan. Stevens cited former defense secretary Robert Gates, who said in a new book that he was also concerned about who would take his place.

Red-state Democrats blast
latest Keystone delay

The Obama administration’s latest Keystone pipeline delay had barely been announced late last week when red-state Democrats began to howl, calling the move everything from ridiculous to irresponsible and vowing to explore ways to force President Obama’s hand. The outcry from within the president’s own party underscored the tricky politics for those Democrats, many of whom are facing tough re-election bids, and decisions such as Keystone make it difficult to be tied to Mr. Obama right now. It also set up a major test: Can those Democrats find a way to pass legislation overruling the administration’s decision,

We learn this Easter Sunday from The New York Times that President Obama now embraces his inner ostrich — Russian President Vladimir Putin is but a pesky irritant, causing problems in just one region of a world that America still rightly leads. Apparently, our cocksure Nobel Peace laureate believes it is cool under the sand, even as tectonic geopolitical plates shift underneath the creaky, man-made foundation “assuring” global security. In real life, President Obama and his senior advisers are making gross mistakes of epic-defining proportions that will have profoundly negative consequences, particularly for the poorest among us.

Bill Maher, comedian or bigot?

Comedy has many subjects: leaders, governments, things we don’t understand. Regarding that last topic, I suppose it is understandable that comedians pick on religions. In any event, freedom of speech allows them to do so. What is generally not condoned, however, are continuous and sweeping insults aimed at those with differing points of view. The worst forms of prejudice and racism are bred out of this type of one-sided banter. Blacks in this country never were given the chance to defend themselves against claims of being less intelligent than whites during the time of slavery. Jews and non-Aryans never were given a chance to defend

Syria´s Bashar Assad visits recaptured

BEIRUT - Syria´s embattled president marked Easter with a tour Sunday of an ancient Christian village recently recaptured by his forces, an important symbolic prize for his government ahead of coming presidential elections he appears poised to contest. President Bashar Assad´s visit to Maaloula, some 40 miles northeast of Damascus, serves a propaganda victory for his government in its quest to be seen as protector of religious minorities as its civil war grinds on. (Snip) Rebels, including fighters from the al Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front, seized Maaloula several times late last year, most recently in December.

A Kuwaiti judge has ordered the temporary closure of two newspapers for breaking a news blackout about an alleged coup plot. The independent newspapers, Al Watan and Alam Al Yawm, published details of a videotape said to show former senior officials planning the overthrow of the Gulf state´s leadership. Both papers have been ordered to stop printing for two weeks. The editor of Al Watan said it would appeal against the suspension. He told Reuters news agency: "I do not think we talked about the tape more than any other newspaper." The videotape purportedly contains allegations of a plot to topple the government

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15.
