Posted on 12/24/2012 6:52:36 AM PST by Old Sarge
A New York Newspaper Printed the names and addresses of every Licensed Pistol Permit holder in two Counties and another County is being posted shortly! This is a massive privacy breach and the latest in a series of over the top emotional reactions to the latest shooting tragedy in Sandy Hook CT meant to intimidate the lawful and prey on peoples fears to exploit the gun grabbing agenda.
In an article title The gun owner next door: What you dont know about the weapons in your neighborhood the paper linked to an interactive map titled: Map: Where are the gun permits in your neighborhood? where you can search neighborhoods to see who received a legal permit to own a hand gun license listed by name and address.

The source article can be found HERE.
The publication, something called Lohud.com, is a front company for - wait for it - Gannett!
If you are reading this, please notify the Bang List, and any other ping list you have.
This is only the beginning - The Left is now bold enough to not even bother hiding the coming agenda!
PING to something hideous...
The left needs a certain amount of killing to push their agenda. This will help them accumulate more collateral damage for their cause.
FYI, to notify the banglist, just add "banglist" in your keywords which someone already has.
Speechless, that map works! At least, you can get a name. I think I may be pulling up stakes soon. Harder tohit a moving target?
The mask is off. They’re not even TRYING to hide it now.
So now if someone harasses a permit holder and winds up getting shot, then they were forewarned by the media, so they shouldn’t complain?
It is a serious breach of privacy, But we have reached the point where we shouldn’t care too much. Someone confronts you, respond.
Thanks for the Banglist tip.
Doesn’t this violate the Hatch Act?
It is also probably illegal. Time for class action suit by all the permit holders against the paper.
We don't live in that area, but I'd be happy to know my neighbors were armed. I'd feel a lot safer in this liberal world because of it.
How long before members of the liberal media get gunned down or at least tarred and feathered ?
This rag of a newspaper has done this before. Every time any kind of notable shooting occurs they post this crap. I didn’t see my name there yet.
Would you rather live in a neighborhood that was armed or unarmed?
I’ll take the armed neighborhood — and, according to John Lott, neighborhoods where citizens are armed are much safer and have less crime.
Criminals want citizens unarmed, it makes their “jobs” easier. Is a criminal going to break into a home with a “Beware of Owner” sign on it with a photo of a large gun? Or a home without such a sign?
If I were moving, I’d make use of that map in a second. I have more to fear from criminals than I do from my neighbors.
Great thing the newsaper is doing! If I lived there, everyone would now know I carry. I would love it to be announced! Super idea!
The Hatch Act of 1939, officially An Act to Prevent Pernicious Political Activities, is a United States federal law whose main provision is to prohibit employees (civil servants) in the executive branch of the federal government, except the president, vice-president, and certain designated high-level officials of the executive branch, from engaging in partisan political activity. The law was named for Senator Carl Hatch of New Mexico.
According to Wiki, seems it only applies to Federal Employees.
This like a sex offender registry.
That was my feeling as well, legal gun owners are not the ones to fear. This is to scare the idiot who says things like “that gun may GO OFF and hurt someone”. I have heard someone make that very statement! Idiot!
LOVE your tagline!
"Laws are for thee, but not for me."
They have armed body guards. It's ok for them to have protection, but not us. They consider themselves Gods among men.
The world would be a more peaceful place without the liberal media. The discord would disappear overnight.
There’s another way to look at though. I can’t carry with me all my weapons everywhere I go so that leaves some of them at my home while I’m out of the house. They are hidden and secured but there is nothing like telling the burglars where to look for guns.
“This like a sex offender registry.”
To the lying scumbag media and other liberals, there is no difference between a registered sex offender and legal CCW holder.
Beautiful azaleas, is that your house?
Sad and very troubling. This map and list set up they put together is probably better and more accurate than anything they have set up for keeping track of disgusting convicted pedophiles and sex offenders. (gotta be careful as an adolescent lest you become a sex offender FOR LIFE for making out with your also underage girlfriend!) Or convicted felons. I guess it’s a lot easier to keep track of the law abiding than the bad guys huh? It’s not like the good guys are going to call the aclu for privacy issues. Maybe we should call them. Besides what do they care about ANY act. They’re excercising 1st amendment rights. Of course they would never put out an interactive map of who has had abortions (infanticide?) by name an address cause that’s private. WTH?
Still driving the wrong way on the one way PC street.
And this is the reason they did this: to stigmatize legal gun owners, as if they're doing something repugnant.
Ironic, isn't it? The same media that glorifies and lauds sex offenders like Bill Clinton and Jerry Sandusky, tries to make gun owners out to be the real reprobates.
And when a thug gets plugged while attempting a robbery, the inevitable quote from the thug’s momma will be that he was just getting his life turned around and was a good boy.
I figure all this type of silliness does is weed out democrat constituents and speed their Darwin awards.
Does that matter? They still vote after death in Chicago and Miami...
From my perspective, this appears to show criminals where armed citizens are..... and tells them where armed citizens AREN’T.
99 times out of 100, a criminal where go where armed resistance is not.
time to post the name and address of every woman that aborted her child in NY
with a year-to-date count for just those areas
The nice thing about living in the south is everybody has a gun. It’s considered abnormal to NOT have at least one.
Remember that the Snowbirds migrate from NY/NJ down here to Miami and Tampa, and they bring their politics with them.
How long before crap like this pops up in Florida newspapers?
I went there and punched on a red dot and up came the name and address of the gun permit man.
I felt like I had broken into his house. I’m sure those owners are freaking out - this is really bad. The group who did this says this is public information. That should be changed. I wonder if it is public information in Texas - is there public information in Texas listing every one who has a consealed carry card?
Maybe someone could develop a map of all the abortion doctors right along with those that have had abortions.
A murder map if you will.
That is the silver lining.
Now the smart crooks will check the list to see which houses to avoid.
I was going to suggest printing the names, addresses, and phone numbers of the paper’s employees. Sauce for the goose, etc.
MOBILE, Alabama —
A shooting on the campus of LeFlore high school earlier this year prompted talk of re-arming school resource officers. Right now—schools across the state are forbidden from arming their security force. State Senator Rusty Glover is introducing legislation for the third time to allow school boards in Mobile County only to decide whether they want school resource officers to pack heat.
These resource officers are highly trained many are former police officers so they are someone that's going to use a lot of good judgment whenever making decisions in times of crisis, says Rusty Glover. It would still need the thumbs up from school boards like Mobile County—board member Dr. Reginald Crenshaw says arming school resource officers would lead to gun battles not safety.
I live here and have firearms. How do you think I feel now.
That was my first thought. Now the criminals know which houses to avoid and which ones are easy targets.
Here’s when this first happened, June, 2010. Thanks for bringing to the forefront again.
They claim they are using their First Amendment Rights to Harass those exercising their Second Amendment.
I hope they get sued out of existence.
I was reading the comments at the story. I read a couple hundred. There was only one comment that didn’t abdo-lutely rip the paper. Then when I tried to load more comments, it stopped loading! Wonder if the paper turned off the comments section? They’re going to see masses of people canceling the subscriptions !
I noticed that, too. The links to the article and the source have been disabled. They must be getting an “Oh-Sh!t-what-have-we-done” moment...
“They must be getting an Oh-Sh!t-what-have-we-done moment...”
Or maybe their lawyer called?
