New York newspaper faces
backlash after publishing
map of gun permit holders

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

On Thursday, the Justice Department announced the biggest environmental settlement in history with Anadarko Petroleum, reaching a $5.15 billion deal to clean up dozens of sites across the United States and compensate more than 7,000 people living with the effects of the contamination. The accord arose out of a lawsuit in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court concerning Tronox, a paint materials manufacturer and unit of the company Kerr-McGee, an Anadarko subsidiary. Anadarko bought Kerr-McGee after it had spun off Tronox, but plaintiffs and Justice Dept. officials charged this was merely an attempt to avoid taking financial

It´s not just natural gas that keeps Ukraine under Russia´s thumb. Almost all the fuel for Ukraine´s 15 nuclear reactors comes from Russia, too. But just as Ukraine is struggling to diversify away from Russian natural gas, it is also eager to break Moscow´s virtual monopoly over its nuclear fuel. Pennsylvania-based Westinghouse Electric Co. told various media outlets this week it will renew a contract with Ukraine´s Energoatom that will extend and expand its flow of nuclear fuel to the struggling nation. The deal is valued at $100 million. "Based on discussions as late as last night [April 3], we will make a deal and increase fuel deliveries this

Mazda Recalling Cars
Due to Danger From Insect

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/5/2014 11:01:51 AM     Post Reply
Detroit - Mazda is recalling 42,000 Mazda6 cars in the U.S. because spiders can weave a web in a vent hose and cause the fuel tank to crack. The recall involves cars from the 2010 through 2012 model years equipped with 2.5-liter engines. The yellow sac spider, which is attracted to hydrocarbons, builds webs that cause pressure to build in the fuel tank. That increases the risk of fuel leaks and fire. Mazda recalled cars in 2011 for the same problem. It put covers on the vent line, but has found spiders can get past them. Mazda will update the cars' software for free beginning this month to ensure that the fuel tank pressure doesn't build up.

The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church.

Milford, CT - Two British men who pleaded guilty to raising money for al Qaeda and the Taliban were denied their bid on Friday to gain access to secret documents about a witness whose testimony could have a major impact on how long they spend in prison. The pair, 39-year-old Babar Ahmad and 34-year-old Syed Talha Ahsan, have argued in papers filed in U.S. District Court in New Haven, Connecticut, that they have a right to more information on the witness, British citizen Saajid Badat.

Quito, Ecuador - Ecuador´s Tungurahua volcano has spewed a 6-mile (10-kilometer) column of ash after a powerful, five-minute explosion that shot pyroclastic material onto its northern and northwestern flanks. Ecuador´s geophysics institute said Friday´s blast occurred at 6:10 p.m. local time and was followed by a second, four-minute explosion and five lesser tremors. The 16,480-foot (5,023-meter) volcano, nearly 90 miles (140 kilometers) south of Quito, revived on Feb. 1, with eruptions that affected a third of Ecuador´s provinces and temporarily closed a regional airport. Tungurahua has been erupting sporadically since 1999.

The appearance of the spokesman, Michael Drewniak, a loyal lieutenant who previously served as Mr. Christie’s spokesman when he was the United States attorney for New Jersey, was confirmed by an official with knowledge of the proceedings. While it has been previously reported that a grand jury was meeting in the case, it was the first confirmation that a grand jury was interviewing witnesses, and not only reviewing subpoenaed

Sarah Palin is not only celebrating David Letterman’s just-announced retirement, she says she hopes it might start a trend. “It’s cool, you know, out with the old, in with the new,” the former Alaska governor said on Fox News’s “Hannity” on Thursday night, after Letterman announced he would retire in 2015 that afternoon. The conservative darling famously clashed with Letterman in 2009 after he told a joke about her daughter that she said crossed a line. He later apologized. Speaking from Florida where Palin was fundraising for upstart Republican congressional candidate Lizbeth Benacquisto, Palin said she hoped Letterman’s decision

Imagine going to work one day only to be, in effect, fired -- not because of anything you did or didn’t do at your job, but because of something you did in your personal life. Something religious. Or maybe, something political.(snip)That’s exactly what happened to Brendan Eich, a highly-respected tech guru in Silicon Valley and co-founder of Mozilla Corporation, after he was appointed CEO in late March. In less than a week, he was forced out of this position for no reason other than that he had a made a $1000 contribution to the Prop 8 initiative in 2008. His

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church. I thought churches are not supposed

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

A senior CIA official has died in an apparent suicide this week from injuries sustained after jumping off a building in northern Virginia, according to sources close to the CIA. CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va. “We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died. Due to privacy reasons and out of respect for the family, we are not releasing

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon.

Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore. Months later, he paid his first visit to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" -- marking the first of 22 appearances. He also guest-hosted "Tonight" numerous times.

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”
