In the aftermath of Sandy Hook, the Journal News in upstate New York published a map with the addressees of all gun permit holders in Westchester, Rockland, and Putnam. The nation was rightly outraged at this violation of basic privacy, and the threat implicit in the publication. Just in case that was too subtle, Gawker has now published a complete list of every licensed gun owner in New York City. The headline? “Here Is a List of All the A******s Who Own Guns in New York City.” Writes the author, John Cook: Below is a 446-page
Comments: It is outrageous what the insane leftists are doing. Do they really want a civil war??
I grew up in Manhattan - interestingly, in an era where you could actually walk around at 2 am and stand a decent chance of getting home alive...
It took less than a post-graduate degree to acquire the wisdom to get the h**l out of the rotten apple. Residing in NYC is simply a clue you have *way* more money than appreciation for quality of life.
They listed all the people that legally own guns and want to protect from those that illegally own guns. The ones committing the crimes were not punished, and those that just want to protect themselves are punished instead. This makes no sense. It´s like trying to fight the problem of teenage pregnancy by publishing the names of all those obtaining marriage licenses.

Dear Blue District Liberals,
It is obvious that you do not appreciate your Red District Citizens. It is obvious that you do not approve of our values, that you consider us dangerous and non-conforming to your enlightened ideology.
I offer you a simple solution. Let us part company.
I suggest a seperation based upon the vote tallies by congressional district from the last election. Your guy won. He want to fundamentally change the United States. Let him start by making it smaller. We will take the constitution as originally written and ammended save the 16th and 17th Amendments which we will remit to you in payment for our sole use of the 2nd and 10th Amendments.
If that´s the way Gawker´s going to present the issue, then fkm´all. Let no cops come to their protection in case of trouble, if gun owners are all ´a**holes´.
What frosts me and endangers us all is how easily some people are persuaded to view the 2nd Amendment, Electoral College, and even the Constitution in general as obsolete or even unjust. Talk about a--holes.....
I assume the Little Weiner who published this list walks around with Bodyguards who are Packing Heat. If he doesn´t, he´s really stupid! After publishing that list, I would never, ever walk on a sidewalk next to the guy. He´s put a huge target on himself by publishing those names. Guess he doesn´t think that what he did will really PO some guy, with a gun, who is a bit unstable! Talk about a Nut Case!
#9 I´ve been saying this for a while. Let´s part ways now while it can still be amicable. Split the country and the debt. The libs can have everyone that voted for the won, the ´undocumented´ immigrants and the OWS crowd. We´ll take our guns, Bibles and The Constituting and move to whichever half of the country is agreed upon. In fifteen to twenty years we´ll be debt free and prosperous. They´ll be living in a bigger version of Zimbabwe and trying to sneak across our border.
Is there a new scientific consensus forming around global cooling? That’s what environmentalist Lawrence Solomon writes in the Financial Post, citing the fact that solar activity is decreasing at the fastest rate as anytime in the last 10,000 years. “Now an increasing number of scientists are swinging back to the thinking of the 1960s and 1970s,” Solomon writes. “The global cooling hypothesis may have been right after all, they say. Earth may be entering a new Little Ice Age.” Solomon adds that Columbia University’s George Kukla — who warned the U.S. government about the dangers of global cooling in 1972 — postulated
HOUSTON — Democrats will not be satisfied with anything short of full government control of healthcare. Like good disciples of Saul Alinsky, they will use any means necessary to get to this desired end. In order to achieve the holy grail of single-payer healthcare, Democrats must do three things, almost simultaneously: First, Obamacare must fail; second, destroy the private insurance market by putting private health insurers out of business; third, in conjunction with their partners in the mainstream media, they must persuade America that private insurance companies,
JPMorgan Chase admitted it is under investigation by the Justice Department over its hiring practices in Hong Kong, the latest in a string of federal probes and lawsuits against the bank that some believe is motivated by political payback. Reuters reports that JPMorgan — the largest U.S. bank by assets — disclosed the investigation Friday as part of a routine filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which is also looking into alleged cronyism in the bank’s hiring process in China. It’s the latest in bad news for JPMorgan, which agreed to pay a record-breaking $5.1 billion to the
Jeffrey Zients, the management expert and former top White House budget aide tapped by President Obama to help fix the federal Obamacare website, said Friday his repair team is still on track to have the online portal working smoothly for the “vast majority of users” by the end of this month. Mr. Zients said a pair of outages to HealthCare.gov’s network, hosted by Verizon Terremark, set the IT experts back at times. “This was a week in which we made progress and also ran into some roadblocks that slowed us down,” he told reporters on a conference call hosted by the Centers
The Obama administration has found itself on the defensive over the botched Obamacare rollout and allegations of National Security Agency spying against allies. But President Obama, fresh off the shutdown fight, is going on the offensive over immigration reform, seeing a chance to further split already-divided Republicans and boost Democrats ahead of the 2014 midterms. Obama has urged lawmakers to deliver a bill to his desk by the end of the year. A bipartisan Senate bill passed earlier this summer, but efforts in the House stalled with Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., opposing a comprehensive bill and Speaker John
According to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, Hillary Clinton’s popularity with the American people is dropping as she has made several public appearances, subtly telegraphing a 2016 presidential candidacy. Last December, 58% of those surveyed viewed her positively, with 34% “very positive” and 24% “somewhat positive.” Now, the number of those who viewed her positively has dropped to 46%, with the “very positive” answer only held by 22% of voters and the “somewhat positive” group remaining at 24%. The 22% who view Hillary “very positively” is the lowest number for Clinton since August of 2008, the month when Barack Obama
The National Republican Senatorial Committee is punishing a Republican advertising firm for its work with the Senate Conservatives Fund, a conservative group that has fostered controversy within the Republican Party by challenging some GOP incumbents. The firm Jamestown Associates has worked for the SCF on many of its attack ads — and will no longer receive business from the NRSC as a result, the committee confirmed Friday. The move marks the opening salvo in a power struggle that has been brewing behind the scenes between the national Republican establishment and the SCF, which was founded by then-Sen. Jim DeMint of
Thursday Cable News Ratings: Fox’s Kelly Beats O’Reilly in Demo Again, As CNN Struggles by Mediaite Staff | 7:04 pm, November 1st, 2013 RATINGS With 471K viewers, Fox’s Megyn Kelly had the #1 highest-rated cable news show in the 25-54 demo for the second night in a row Thursday, beating The O’Reilly Factor, which had 438K. Bill O’Reilly beat Kelly in total viewers, 3.574M to 3.041M. Meanwhile, CNN continued to struggle in the demo, with all primetime shows coming in under 100K. The one bright spot on CNN’s lineup came at 4pm, when The Lead with Jake Tapper beat MSNBC’s
The president’s signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act, is in serious trouble. As a result, so is modern liberalism. The problems with Obamacare are increasingly obvious, beginning with the administration unilaterally delaying the employer mandate. But that turned out to be merely one link in a long and troublesome chain. The other difficulties include the disastrous rollout of the federal health care exchange website, causing (for now) a six-week extension for Americans to sign up for coverage next year in order to avoid new tax penalties. There are millions of insurance cancellations. Then there’s the sticker shock caused by
A DoD official told the Senate Homeland Security Committee on Thursday that about 50 convicted felons were given access to Navy installations without the proper checks, and no one has been held accountable. A Sept. 16, 2013 DoD inspector general’s report, which was released the same day as the Navy Yard shooting, found that the Navy Commercial Access Control System (NCACS) “did not effectively mitigate access control risks associated with contractor installation access” because Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNJC) officia“As a result, 52 convicted felons received routine, unauthorized installation access, placing military
David Brock, the Clinton ally who led the public effort to pressure CNN and NBC out of their Hillary-related film projects, is set to send a letter to the chairman and president of CBS News calling on them to retract a recent "60 Minutes" segment on the attacks in Benghazi. In the letter, a draft of which was obtained by POLITICO, Brock cites a new Washington Post report revealing that the "60 Minutes" witness had previously stated he was nowhere near the diplomatic compound the night of the attack." "The 60 Minutes story should be immediately retracted and an independent investigative committee
President Barack Obama has given the nation a new “Council on Climate Preparedness and Resilience” that expands government bureaucrats’ role in how Americans use their lands, energy, waters and property. Obama announced the executive order Friday, the day after Halloween. The order is titled “Preparing the United States for the Impacts of Climate Change.” The new order was issued even though recent scientific data have contradicted claims that use of carbon energy — such as gasoline — will drive up the world’s temperature and induce damaging climate change. Average temperatures have leveled for more than a decade, despite the sharply rising use
I´m reading a terribly sad book these days. It´s a book that I thought would uplift me during the doldrums of second-year medical school, and renew in me a sense of hope. It´s called "The Audacity to Win," and it´s a memoir of Barack Obama´s 2008 presidential campaign. When I´m finished with my patient write-ups at night and get into bed, the book returns me to a time when politics inspired millions and speeches could take your breath away. The election turned out to be a landslide, and news anchors paused to reflect on the historic nature of the hour. My classmates
President Obama used his executive powers on Friday to create a ´Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience.´ Obama´s plan would be put in place through executive order, bypassing Congress, which has stalemated over climate legislation in recent years. A year after Superstorm Sandy devastated the East Coast, the President signed the order which is designed to make it easier for states and local governments to respond to weather disasters. The executive order establishes a task force of state and local officials to advise the administration on how to respond to severe storms, wildfires, droughts and other potential impacts of
The latest NBC/WSJ poll finds that more Americans would vote for a third party candidate for Congress than a Republican. 35% of voters prefer a Democrat, which has been steady for three years. Republicans, however, have experienced an 8-point swing against them since they took control of the House. Today, just 28% of voters say they would vote for a Republican for Congress, while 30% would opt for a third party. The GOP Establishment, engaged in open war against the Tea Party and conservatives, is simply committing political suicide. Listening to the consultant and pundit class who inhabit the "Acela line"
As one of the surviving members of the staff of the Warren Commission, which investigated and issued a report on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, I am not looking forward to the coming weeks: Nov. 22 will mark the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s death, and that means a new round of demonizing the Warren Commission and celebrating fallacious conspiracy theories. After Chief Justice Earl Warren hired me to work for the commission, he told me that “truth was our only client.” Throughout the inquiry, that phrase remained our guiding principle. The evidence that Lee Harvey Oswald killed the
CNN´s senior legal analyst thinks that any further investigation into Benghazi is looking at a "non-story" since "there is nothing there, in terms of a scandal." On Thursday´s AC360 Later, Jeffrey Toobin scoffed at Republican efforts to gain access to more Benghazi witnesses and CIA operatives. "This is a non-story. Benghazi was a tragedy. It´s not a scandal. Republicans are going to investigate this until the end of the Obama administration. They will find nothing, because there´s nothing to be found there," he insisted. [Video below the break. Audio here.]"We don´t know all the facts about the Civil War. If
CNN has been pondering what they call “a particularly tough few days at the White House.” “Four out of five Americans have little or no trust in their government to do anything right,” says chief political analyst Gloria Borger. “And now Obama probably feels the same way.” Our hearts go out to him, poor wee disillusioned thing. We are assured by the headline writers that the president was “unaware” of Obamacare´s website defects, and the National Security Agency spying, and the IRS targeting of his political enemies, and the Justice Department bugging the Associated Press, and pretty
Food stamp benefits will be cut to more than 47 million Americans starting Friday as a temporary boost to the federal program comes to an end without a new budget from a deadlocked Congress to replace it. Under the program, known formally as the Supplemental Nutrition and Assistance Program, or SNAP, a family of four who get $668 per month in benefits will find that amount cut by $36. SNAP, which benefits 1 in 7 Americans, is administered by the department of Agriculture and is authorized in a five-year omnibus farm bill covering all agricultural programs. Vulnerable populations will be hardest hit by
A former top general and current executive at the Family Research Council says members of the military have considered staging a coup d´état against President, but will not because of civilian control of the military. "People I´ve spoken to would like to see the military ´fulfill their constitutional duty and take out the president,´ " retired Army Lt. Gen. William Boykin told World Net Daily, a website best known for pushing Obama "birther" conspiracy theories. "Our Constitution puts a civilian in charge of the military and as a result a coup would not be constitutional. You´re not going to see a
Richmond, Va. - Women may hold the key in Virginia´s slash-and-burn race for governor, rendering a final judgment on a campaign marked by fights over social issues. Democrats have not relented in their criticism of Republican Ken Cuccinelli´s positions on abortion, women´s reproductive health and even divorce, and it´s taken a toll, especially among female voters. Polls show Cuccinelli consistently struggling to connect with women in his race against Democratic Terry McAuliffe. Heading into Tuesday´s election, the cash-poor Cuccinelli campaign is trying to set the record straight at every stop, with the state attorney general telling allies, "The truth is
Wendy Davis should send Rick Perry a muffin basket, because he may have handed her a winning issue in her longshot bid to succeed Perry as governor of Texas. It may be counter-intuitive that Davis, a Democratic state senator running for governor in a red state, would bring up the controversial health care reform law, but it might be a risk she needs to take. In order for Davis to defeat Attorney General Greg Abbott, her likely Republican opponent next November, political strategists say she needs to win big among two key demographics: Hispanics and white women. Among Hispanics in
President Obama just issued an executive order “to prepare the Nation for the impacts of climate change by undertaking actions to enhance climate preparedness and resilience.” “The impacts of climate change — including an increase in prolonged periods of excessively high temperatures, more heavy downpours, an increase in wildfires, more severe droughts, permafrost thawing, ocean acidification, and sea-level rise — are already affecting communities, natural resources, ecosystems, economies, and public health across the Nation. These impacts are often most significant for communities that already face economic or health-related challenges, and for species and habitats that are already facing other pressures.
Editors of The Associated Press condemned the White House’s refusal to give photojournalists real access to President Obama, who prefers to circulate press release-style pictures taken by his own paid photographers. These official photographs are little more than propaganda, according to AP director of photography Santiago Lyon. The AP has only been permitted to photograph the president in the Oval Office on two occasions. Both were during his first term. All other pictures of Obama in his office were taken by White House photographers and distributed to the press. Previous administrations were less strict about photos, undermining Obama’s frequent claim
