Writer Dwight R. Worley not shown as gun permit holder on Journal News internet map
12/29/12 | Libloather

Posted on 12/29/2012 3:30:36 PM PST by Libloather

Did some digging. From Dwight R. Worley's own piece at the Journal News website and Angry White Dude - Journal News reporter Dwight R. Worley owns a Smith & Wesson 686 .357 Magnum and has had a residence permit in New York City for that weapon since February 2011.

I went to the Journal News map. There is no red dot on his address showing that he is a permit holder.

To be fair, they may not have updated all of the info on that website yet. BUT, there are red dots shown in his area.


TOPICS: Crime/Corruption; Extended News; News/Current Events; Your Opinion/Questions
KEYWORDS: banglist; doublestandard; gns; guncontrol; map; permit; secondamendment; vanity; worley
Now, you would think that the Journal News would want EVERYONE to be safe and sound and would put themselves front and center as an example. Mr. Worley seems to have been given a pass.

It may important to watch who they decide to leave off that map as well as who they put on it.

So... there is an agenda here, eh? Great detective work pointing out, once again, the utter corruption of the agenda-driven media.

Excellent reporting. It would be amusing to call his newspaper's advertising department and try placing a full-page ad exposing this hypocrisy.

The article they wrote listed the names of Concealed Weapons Permit holders, NOT legal firearms owners..........

Worley is not on the map because he obviously doesn't have a concealed weapons permit.......

That is incorrect.

To create the map, The Journal News submitted Freedom of Information requests for the names and addresses of all pistol permit holders in Westchester, Rockland and Putnam. By state law, the information is public record.

To clarify, in New York, you need a permit to OWN a pistol, not just to carry one. There are several levels of permit, with the hardest to get being the carry permit.

Alas, Mr. Worley lives in Queens County. Clever of him.

“and has had a residence permit in New York City for that weapon since February 2011”

-an item just about impossible to obtain, especially with so late an issue date.

I think this whole "outing" of gun owners, CCW, etc. is reprehensible.

And turnabout is not fair play. It's equally as reprehensible.

NY requires a permit to own a handgun. Those were the names and addresses published ( except Dwight R. Worley's)

Raping of our Second Amendment Rights by NY State govt gangsters

1922 no pistol permits required in NY State for the previous 137 years. "Fort Niagara, July 30 :•—Someone has said that with every reduction in our system of defense there must be a corresponding increase in the training of our citizens so that they will be ready to take 'their place in the front line with a minimum of delay. If the Regular Army and the National Guard are "appropriated" into such a state of weakness and unpreparedness that they can no longer form the first line of defense, then it will be necessary, In event of war, to rush our citizens from home to battle line with little or no time for training. Because of this, the work that Is bring done, by the various Service Rifle and Pistol Teams is of increasing importance and peculiar Interest centers on their training this year and on the National Matches which are to be held at Camp, Perry, Ohio, In September, The primary Idea In holding rifle and pistol competitions is not the turning out of winning teams nor the production of medal hunters -but to increase interest thruout the Service and among our citizens in the use of the rifle and pistol. In so far as the citizen population becomes familiar with the use of these arms the work of training men in time of emergency is lessened, and the safety of the individuals and our country Increased." Plattsburgh Daily Republican Mon. July 31, 1922 ================================

9 years later this Second Amendment Right was taken away by the State of NY gangsters` govt Sullivan Law et alii.

"PISTOL LICENSES' APPLICATIONS HERE Surrogate, Charles H. Harrington has advised that the forms for applications for pistol licenses under the new law are now obtainable at his office. The applications are more detailed than formerly. The applicant must submit three photographs of himself taken within thirty days prior to the application. The finger prints of the applicant must also be placed on the application. Finger prints are taken at the police department. If the applicant merely desires a pistol license to keep a pistol in his house he does not have to submit & photograph to us with his finger prints." Plattsburgh Daily Republican Nov 5 1931

The REAL AMERICA!

Mrs. Roosevelt carried concealed--HIpHIP!

MRS. ROOSEVELT CARRIES PISTOL NEW YORK, March 7 (IP)—Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt carries a long barreled pistol on her frequent motor trips about the country, friends said tonight, as a concession to the secret service and not because she fears for her own safety. "If you want to get her down on you "for good," one of them confided, "just hint that she is afraid to travel alone." The President's wife disclosed in New Orleans yesterday that she carries a pistol in her automobile and "can use it." She added that she had the "same training with a pistol that the New York National Guard has." Mon. March 9, 1937 Plattsburgh Daily Press

They knew it in 1929

"Is Liberty Passing?

Probably much of our modern increase in crime can be laid to the fact that in the past quarter-century a vast number of acts, once innocent and legal, have been turned into offenses by legislation. Instead of a liberal, well-ordered legal code that permits every citizen to lead his own life so long as he does not tread on his fellows, we are burdened with a multitude of petty laws, many of them conflicting, and practically all of them bound by red tape. In a recent article, H. L. MENCKEN, editor of the American Mercury, said that "the bill of rights is on its last legs. . .

Step by step, at first cautiously but of late boldly, the learned justices have found reasons to sustain the wholesale destruction, first of individual rights, and then of state rights. Today the once free "American citizen is a mere subject. . ."

"What real crime there is, and no doub't there is a great deal of it, could be easily enough handled under a simple, rigorous and swift legal and penal code. Once murderers and thugs found that technicalities and evasions were of no avail, and served only to hurry them to the hoosegow, crime would start down hill. Once the sob sisters and professional reformers were put in their place, real offenses against society would diminish. But to atttempt to prevent crime at the expense of the law-abiding is a dangerous practice. The anti-pistol laws, for example, play directly into the hands of the criminal who is assured of an unprotected citizenry. And still more important, they are a menace to freedom.

The average person is well disposed and honest. And the average criminal would swiftly eschew his profession if punishment were certain and swift -.We need fewer and better laws, not more; a simpler legal machinery, not a more ponderous one." Plattsburgh Daily Press Tuseday April 16 1929

As I tell some of the gun control nuts: “Only the living can discuss the nuances of gun control laws and I intend to be one of those living ones, whereas you should instruct your survivors as to your desires for that discussion”.

Ha, I was waiting for this. You knew they would hide their names from the published list. Of course, that puts them on a potential robbery list. Oh, well, too bad.

I can see a robber checking the the map for guns to be sure of a safe hit.
Or to find a house to steal guns from. Either way the element of surprise
is somewhat lifted and the goal can be affirmed.

We need some NY firearms owners who were IDd in his map/article to go peacefully picket on the sidewalk in front of his house, just to really make the point and to endear him with his neighbors. And in front of the publisher and board members.

Dwight R Worley doesn’t show up in the maps because he lives in Queens County, not one of the counties listed.
