NY Paper to Publish Additional
Gun Owners´ Names, Addresses

Breitbart Big Journalism, by Warner Todd Huston

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/29/2012 6:55:49 PM

The New York newspaper that drew criticism for publishing the names and addresses of hundreds of legal gun permit holders is doubling down by publishing the personal information of even more law-abiding gun owners. To great criticism, the Journal News published an interactive map showing the names and addresses of the legal gun owners in Westchester and Rockland counties just before Christmas. Now the paper has announced it will next publish the names and addresses of permit-holders in Putnam County with an eye toward eventually politicizing the names and addresses of every gun owner in the state.

RE #9

True, its a matter of public record. However, the intention of registering a gun was largely due to law enforcement. And there is a difference between you going to the county and doing a search and a news paper publishing everything.

Perhaps Briebart could publish the divorce records of everyone in that county....after all its in the public record. Or perhaps publish an interactive map of everyone that´s been adopted... or every minority home owner... or an interactive map over every registered democrat that voted in the election. Maybe publish an interactive map of luxury car owners, or a map of corporate executives, or business owners, licensed pets????

There is freedom of the press and then there is the abuse of the private citizen. This news paper is ABUSING the public record, specifically to pressure private, law abiding citizens. If this is allowed to stand, there is no end to what trouble the press can get into.

And most amazing ......... the press cant be bothered with vetting Obama, reporting ob Fast and Furious, Benghazi etc, but they have the time to badger private citizens.

I don´t care if people know I own guns. In fact, I own lots of guns - and there´s no complete record of all of them. And I buy badass bullets for those guns to increase their stopping power. And I have a Concealed Carry Permit so one can never know if I am armed or not - so you´d better watch what you do around me. Or maybe I am just pulling your leg and want to tell you that you shouldn´t believe everything you read. Or maybe you should. Just remember to be nice around me.

FTA: "Now the paper has announced it will next publish the names and addresses of permit-holders in Putnam County with an eye toward eventually politicizing the names and addresses of every gun owner in the state."
Interesting. I´m looking forward to seeing the names and addresses of all those folks in NY, especially the, uh, famous ones. You know, the politicians, entertainers, television folks, and especially those good people on the news programs. Can´t wait CynDee. What´s that? You won´t be publishing those peoples´ names? Come again? That might endanger them? So, you are flexing your 1st Amendment rights, just not toward your lefty famous buddies. Kinda being selective, huh?
We should check. Did she name everyone with a permit in those areas, or did she leave some people off the map? If she left anyone off of the map, she is a fraud, a grandstander and an incrediby reckless woman.

New York State has no restriction on long gun purchase, no requirement to register, or license requirement. These are required for handguns. So, not having your name and address listed doesn’t mean there is not a firearm in the home. Also, almost beyond belief to some, there may even be handguns not duly reported to the authorities in some dwellings, particularly those of professional criminals.

As a CCW holder, we are not allowed to show our carry- that why it´s called "Concealed Carry". Even if your shirt flies up in a breeze and someone sees your gun and calls a cop, you can actually be arrested for what is called "Brandishing". You must keep your weapon concealed at all times. So, this bunch of idiots in NY publishing the names is kind of a good thing. I, personally, can´t tell people I´m carrying a weapon. But, the loony publisher can do that for me. To me- that´s actually a good thing.

#27, you can´t tell people you are carrying, but you can tell them you have a CCW permit. Maybe they will make the assumption that you are carrying. If someone asks "Are you carrying"? you can always respond "I´m not allowed to tell you I am carrying" and let them assume what they will.

#12 stated it perfectly. There are many things that are available in public record, but most people would be horrified to have that information broadcast to the world. And that is exactly what the paper did...BROADCAST the information to the world. That is totally irresponsible. You do remember that even with a free press and free speech, there is such a thing as a limitation on rights when it infringes on the rights of others. You can yell "fire" in a crowded theater but expect to pay the consequences for your actions as people get stampeded to death in the panic. Even if no one is hurt, they can still arrest you for endangering the lives of others,

Ages and ages ago, I worked for a local newspaper chain. We never had problems, because the managing editor refused to hire any journalism or communications majors. After the new owner forced that editor out, the very liberal new editor decided to publish a very striking color photo of a car fire in which a mother of 3 was killed on the cover of the year-end review edition.

The family sued, claiming it no longer had any news value, as the accident had happened at the beginning of the year. The courts agreed, all through the appeal process.

Legal gun owners following the law are not newsworthy. It was an attempt to intimidate them. They should sue.

This newspaper is clearly up to something, and we have no reason to assume that they are just doing it on their own. They are doubling down, and doing it rather outrageously, attempting to inhibit law abiding private citizens from exercising their constitutional rights. That´s quite a big fight to pick. Why are they doing it? What are they trying to accomplish? What are they trying to make happen? What response are they trying to invite? I have an idea.

Could they be attempting to bait the NRA into responding? Could they be attempting to lure the NRA into an expensive legal battle with the ACLU, pitting the First Amendment against the Second Amendment? Could they be attempting to bait the NRA into depleting their resources over this nonsense rather than preserving it for the bigger fight over the gun control legislation we will see passed in 2013?

Almost every home in Texas has, as a standard item, a directory of all the people in the area that own guns and are, therefore, armed. We use it all the time for many different purposes. We call it "the phone book."

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

SCARBOROUGH, Maine- John C. Houbolt, an engineer whose contributions to the U.S. space program were vital to NASA´s successful moon landing in 1969, has died. He was 95. Houbolt died Tuesday at a nursing home in Scarborough, Maine, of complications from Parkinson´s disease, his son-in-law Tucker Withington, of Plymouth, Mass., confirmed Saturday. As NASA describes on its website, while under pressure during the U.S.-Soviet space race, Houbolt was the catalyst in securing U.S. commitment to the science and engineering theory that eventually carried the Apollo crew to the moon and back safely. His efforts in the early 1960s are largely

Democrats have a problem and everyone knows it. President Obama calls it a “congenital disease.” If they can’t control it, Obama could spend the final years of his presidency battling not only a Republican House but also a Republican Senate. Democrats don’t vote in midterm elections. That’s an exaggeration, of course, but the core of the Democratic coalition is made up of many people who turn out to vote only in presidential elections. The Republican coalition — older and whiter — suffers less from midterm falloff.So much has been made of the building blocks the president assembled to win his

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

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

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.
