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.

TOPICS: Crime/Corruption; Culture/Society; News/Current Events; US: New York
KEYWORDS: banglist; guncontrol; guns; hypocrites; secondamendment
FTA:The newspaper separately noted that the reporter on the story "owns a Smith & Wesson 686 .357 Magnum and has had a residence permit in New York City for that weapon since February 2011."
Oh, I get it the laws are for thee, not for me. The Journal-News WAS a left-of-center but halfway decent paper long ago. Any blood shed as a result of this stuns will be on the hands of those employed by the Urinal-Spews.

Wonder if the newspaper can post listing of kids family names & addresses playing violent video games while taking prescription drugs?

It would be nice if somebody found google or other maps to their homes, google “street views,” google satellite images of their neighborhoods, and lots of photos to recognize these creeps on sight etc. Cars, office where they work, all of the phone numbers and emails they use, all of it.

They want to invade privacy and cast aspersions? Fine. Turnabout is fair play.

Appreciate you posting that list. I’ll need to bookmark it or print it for easy reference. I admit I haven’t been as careful as I should be and was surprised to see some of the names on that list, ex.: American Thinker. Thanks!

If they publish a list of all the people who are armed, are they not, in effect, publishing a list of all those households that are unarmed and defenseless? Should not those people sue the paper for increasing the likelihood of their being robbed or assaulted?

I want to know how (from whom) Dwight got an NYC carry permit.

Those things don’t exist, unless you are rich AND well-connected.

I’m sure he’s connected to one of the tribal leaders in Queens!

Pardon me, but where is that stated in the excerpt list?

Either that, or which houses to break into, to get weapons. The police believe that ex-con Spengler, who killed his sister, two volunteer firefighters, and wounded two other firefighters in Webster, NY on Monday, got his weapons from breaking into houses.

Maybe an internet list should show where all the paper’s staffer’s kids go to school.

Think they’d support that ‘freedom of speech’?

Isn’t this the kind of crap found on DU that we complain about? If it is bad for the lefties to advocate this stuff, why should we do it?

when you are dealing with mentally defective liberal idiots sometimes you have to take the debate down to their level before they can understand it...
