Skip to comments.More lists I think ought to be published

The Journal News in New York took it upon itself to publish a list of legal gun owners and found itself in the cross hairs of outrage. So much so that the editors felt they had to hire armed guards for their own protection.
Additionally, a list of the names and addresses of those working at the newspaper has been published and they don't like it one bit.
The brain dead editor of the paper, Jane Hasson, expresses her displeasure with having to deal with the fallout of her exceptionally stupid decision:
But the article, which left gun owners feeling vulnerable to harassment or break-ins, also drew outrage from across the country. Calls and e-mails grew so threatening that the papers president and publisher, Janet Hasson, hired armed guards to monitor the newspapers headquarters in White Plains and its bureau in West Nyack, N.Y.
Personal information about editors and writers at the paper has been posted online, including their home addresses and information about where their children attended school; some reporters have received notes saying they would be shot on the way to their cars; bloggers have encouraged people to steal credit card information of Journal News employees; and two packages containing white powder have been sent to the newsroom and a third to a reporters home (all were tested by the police and proved to be harmless).
As journalists, we are prepared for criticism, Ms. Hasson said, as she sat in her meticulously tended office and described the ways her 225 employees have been harassed since the article was published. But in the U.S., journalists should not be threatened. She has paid for staff members who do not feel safe in their homes to stay at hotels, offered guards to walk employees to their cars, encouraged employees to change their home telephone numbers and has been coordinating with the local police.
Gee, let's see. The Journal News singles out for ignominy and harassment people who are guilty of absolutely nothing other than abiding by the law and then has the audacity to be troubled by the reaction.
Not to be outdone in the stupid department, Gawker published the names of "All the As****es...Who Own Guns."
Among the "as****es" listed are Robert Deniro and Donald Trump. FWIW.
As long as we're into lists, I have some suggestions for additional lists that are worthy of publication.
A record 46.7 million people are on food stamps and it costs the US taxpayer over $75 billion per year. Let's identify them. Let's publish their names and addresses.

I’ve been craving a list of every Alfa Romeo owner in Nebraska since 1970.
Remember when liberals were all upset about a list of known Communists working in the State Department?
“Ive been craving a list of every Alfa Romeo owner in Nebraska since 1970.”
All of those people have gone bankrupt and been committed.
Well played, sir. Well played.
Exactly! You have seen through my plan.
I would like to see a list of left-wing celebrities that own SUVs and private jets.
I can give you a list of all American who ever bought their second Fiat if that helps.
How about who is getting welfare but has an iPhone, big screen, cable and a new car.
Or every household that has received an Obama phone or 5.
Should this list change, I plan on telling the government. I plan on telling everybody.
“I want a list with addresses of everyone who is on government assistance”
Would be quite a long list.
Best laugh of the day!
No need for that today. Just ask for all of State's personnel files.
What a twit she is - in the U.S., the Press shouldn't be a Left-wing tool and be the enemy of the People. When the Press starts harrassing the People, it is time to put the Press in its place. But, being "typical" Leftists, the Press only sees wrong when equality and fairness (slap the People and get slapped back) prevail. It's really kind of ironic since they keep pushing the "equality/fairness" BS of the Left, but I guess it only applies to others. If we agree with them and actually commit to "equaility and fairness" we can make their lives miserable by treating them exactly as they treat us.
A list of all Prius owners who think they are driving a “green” muscle car.
