Paper hires armed guards after mapping gun permits

A newspaper just north of New York City that published maps on its website showing the names and addresses of pistol-permit holders in its coverage area has reportedly hired armed guards at one of its offices.

The Journal News, a Gannett Co. Inc. publication based in White Plains, N.Y., hired the armed security guards days after posting the maps in the wake of last month's deadly rampage at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., the Rockland County Times reported.

According to police reports obtained by the Times, The Journal News' Rockland editor, Caryn McBride, filed at least two police reports after receiving numerous "negative" phone calls and emails about the maps.

One email writer questioned "what McBride would get in her mail now," according to the Times. The police found that email "did not constitute an offense."

The Journal News published the maps for two of the three counties it covers, Rockland and Westchester, and has faced difficulties getting the same information for the third county, Putnam.

Irony indeed. I imagine the irony is lost on them though.

I guess they are discovering that the only solution to a “bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun”.... (with apologies if the quote is not 100% accurate).

Caryn McBride, editor,


must now understand that she is on the side of fascism, the side of history that produced people like Himmler, and Mussolini.

And the calls and e-mails should keep coming until she understands whose side she has chosen.

Caryn, read this:

Nothing ironic about it.

Modus operandi

Create the problem, fix problem and like a tax, it never goes away.

This is CBS, about as mainstream as it gets -- MSM all the way.

Read the comments at the site, this MSM site, and ask yourself: if this is what real Americans think even at MSM sites, who the hell is voting for liberals?

Folks, conservatives who poo-poo vote fraud and try to tell you that the majority of Americans are beyond hope, don't know their asses from hot rocks.

We are the majority, liberals are the minority, except in the MSM and pop culture, where they dominate. But READ THE COMMENTS of MSM consumers, which the MSM never acknowledges or reports on. Judging by those comments, most regular Americans despise the liberal bias of the MSM, despise liberalism, and despise Obama.

But the MSM has them brainwashed into thinking "most" Americans voted for liberals. Yeah. And Al Franken didn't cheat.

We MUST wake up to the fact that we are the majority in this country, and that vote fraud has tipped the scales to liberals and the MSM has conditioned Americans not to question it by creating the false impression that all of America is like the MSM, dominated by liberals, when the opposite is true.

READ THE COMMENTS of MSM consumers and start getting a clue, those of you who think most of your fellow Americans are stupid enough to elect liberals. You have been DUPED.

Notice that the only ‘bad guys’ they’re worried about are legal gun owners. The paper is intentionally insulting traditional Americans who believe in the Constitution. I’m sure they won’t print a list of criminals... or even pedophiles... But they’ll print lists of honest gun owners.

On the lighter brighter side, newspapers are dying because they write for fellow liberal elites and there aren’t enough of them to elect a dog catcher without the ‘help’ of the parasite/union classes.... (who by the way don’t read newspapers)

Yes, this is a deliberate insult to gun owners. They prababy aren’t even going to spend the money to do it. Saying it accomplishes their goal - demonizing gun ownership.

The ratio of shootings at schools to shootings at a newspaper is probably 100,000 to 1. Yet, these clowns arm themselves, and wouldn’t arm schools.

The security guards were scheduled to watch the paper's Rockland office through Wednesday, the Times reported.

They really must be worried to hire armned guards for three whole days.

It's time to split the country into two countries. One red - one blue. One liberal - one conservative.

Dems will get what they want - and we will too.

The gun issue and the Journal newspaper - example: In the 'Blue United States' there will be massive numbers of gun control laws. Laws will outlaw guns, bullets, steel, magazines about guns, gun shows, gun owners etc.

Newspapers like the Journal will NEVER have to print the names of legal gun owners because there won't be any legal gun owners in the "Blue United States". (One more reason to split the United States into two countries)

The Journal won't have to hire armed security guards because all guns will be outlawed. Citizens - security guards, cops - no one will be allowed to own a gun. Liberals can show us how well that idea works. They're doing it in Chicago now - that city can be their beacon of truth and right... showing the rest of us how well 'gun control' works... the Chicago way...

In the "Red United States" we'll have a Second Amendment that we respect and hold true.

Each of us must start the process of splitting. If you're offered a job in a blue State or a red - and all things are basically equal - choose the red.

That's how we start... Then we talk about the idea - to everyone we know. Even democrats. Appeal to their emotion and greed. Write the New York Times and Washington Post about the idea. Tell them a "Red United States' would give Newspapers money to survive and prosper... Appeal to their greed... Just like dem 'leaders' do now... it's the only way they hear. Offer tips... leads ... people to interview... and unionized journalists - where no one gets fired - ever.

Democrats would love to be able to raise the minimum wage to $50 an hour. They can do it! We won't be there to stop them.

It's like offering rebellious teenagers the house and the car - and all the furniture. On condition that they NEVER move back in with us. In their minds they'll have it all... well, until they discover the cost of keeping things going. But by that time we'll be gone...

It's the same here. Let their greed rule their little greedy hearts. Offer them everything so we can get the hell out of Dodge. It'll take them time to loot all we've left - and by that time our “Blue United States” will have a fence around it and Border Guards tasked with keeping them out.

Liberal elites can also have the ‘brown’ country they speak of with such longing - as if there aren't ‘brown’ countries anywhere in the world. And the Red United States will take all the mean people - blacks, whites and browns who believe in the Constitution and responsibility... We get conservatives of all colors. We get conservative people of faith - conservative Christians and Jews - and they get the liberals... They get the global warming people and we get real scientists...

Liberals would love to leave. Why would they want to stay when they can have it all their way? Marriage between any groups? Free abortions and birth control for anyone old enough to get pregnant. Every job run by a Union. Every union boss paid with forced ‘membership fees’.

Liberals can open their borders to all the third world countries - no restrictions on drug usage. No cops... No rules - just right... as they say.

And we can build fences to keep them out. It's a win win. The financial incentives will work. Dems are greedy. Most Democrats will leave willingly. The elites might be smart enough to figure out where they're ideas really lead - but they'll probably have too much pride to admit it... and they'll leave too.

It's worth working toward. Why should we hold democrats back from their dreams? Why should they fight us in congress? They can have it all... we just want the hell out of here before they get it all... and they're stuck only looting each other.

GOPJ said:"It's time to split the country into two countries."

Let's call them "The United States" and "Mexico". All that's left is to draw the borders.
