They just don't learn

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A suburban New York newspaper that sparked an uproar among gun enthusiasts by publishing names and addresses of residents holding pistol permits is now planning to publish even more identities of permit-toting locals.
Further names and addresses will be added as they become available to a map originally published on December 24 in the White Plains, New York-based Journal News, the newspaper said.
The original map listed thousands of pistol permit holders in suburban Westchester and Rockland counties just north of New York City.
Along with an article entitled "The gun owner next door: What you don't know about the weapons in your neighborhood," the map was compiled in response to the December 14 shooting deaths of 26 children and adults in Newtown, Connecticut, editors of the Gannett Corp.-owned newspaper said.
The next batch of names will be permit holders in suburban Putnam County, New York, where the county clerk told the newspaper it is still compiling information.


I cannot wait for the first shooting of a burglar that's coming for guns that he found because of these idiot's irresponsible 'journalism'. If I was the shooter, I'd sue the paper and indiviually every single person involved in the publication and distribution of that information for the mental duress I suffered for taking a human life because of them. I mean it.
I'm sure the newspaper is insured, but what about the layout people, printers, proofreaders, delivery people, vendors and little Johnny the paperboy?
Hit 'em where it hurts - the pocketbook.

I think the good libs at the paper should ALSO print their own addresses and let the readers know where they live and that they do not own guns. Or, at least post signs in their yards.....

Oh, they won't do that, Abby. They're good little sheep and would never do anything to bring harm upon themselves.

@ Abby- other blogs have printed their names, addresses and phone numbers.

Since these Libs just HAVE to use the FOI to find gun permit holders- maby a largish blog could use that same FOI to see what kinds of felonies these same snobby Liberals have been accused of and spread that far and wide.

Tit for tat, since they're treating gun owners like sex offenders.

You've mentioned before the necessity of scouting out locations of the potential enemy in any hypothetical civil war; you should probably include addresses of "journalists" such as these, since they are acting more as the propaganda arm of the State than as an independent media.

I'm idly sitting by watching what happens in that corner of the US. This won't end well.

I've seen three different studies in the last 20 years, one funded by the NRA, that asked felons what the largest factor determining which victim they picked was. In an overwhelming 75-95%, the thugs said "Is the vic armed?" The permit holders are just about guaranteed to be safer now. The ones who should worry are the dumbass anti-gun sumbitches. Count on it.

Oh yeah, here's the page of the guy posting the interactive map showing all the paper's employees, their phone numbers, maiden names, facebook, twitters, streetviews of their houses, etc. And about 600 comments on the scumbag MSM dickheads.
