Inmates using gun map to threaten Guards - Sheriff
Fox News ^ | 1/5/2013 | Staff

Posted on 01/05/2013 4:54:11 AM PST by GlockThe Vote

Law enforcement officials from a New York region where a local paper published a map identifying gun owners say prisoners are using the information to intimidate guards.

Rockland County Sheriff Louis Falco, who spoke at a news conference flanked by other county officials, said the Journal News' decision to post an online map of names and addresses of handgun owners Dec. 23 has put law enforcement officers in danger.

"They have inmates coming up to them and telling them exactly where they live. That's not acceptable to me," Falco said, according to Newsday.

So what's going to be the end result of all this? Drag gun owners out of their houses and beat them up? Send them to re-education camps? Extermination camps? Burn their houses down? Murder their kids?

Sounding more and more like Germany in the late 1930s!!!!

No!!! It is the exact consequences the anti-gunners wanted.

The left is happy. The left hates law enforcement officers of all kinds, and loves the “poor oppressed downtrodden” inmates who can’t be held responsible for their actions because “society” is to blame because it is evil racist homophobe blah blah.

They don’t know exactly where they live.
The scope of the area got smaller.

Are prison guards required to have handgun permits ? I thought they would be exempt as other state law enforcement.

It is amazing how shallow and short sighted the thinking of leftists who consider themselves intellectuals always is.

Unintended consequences never cross their minds. Its like dealing with small children.

Prison guards are required to qualify as “peace officers.” That means they are, at least in my state, pistol permit holders of the “at work” variety. Some permits only “allow” one to possess a pistol in the discharge of his employment.

The newspaper is owned by Gannett. Who also owns US Today. It is not just a small town newspaper that is doing this.

The Gannett rag in this area is liberal and anti-gun. It keeps shrinking in size year by year.

Idiots on the left think they can initiate chaos and then...wait for it...control the chaos. Just look at Venezuala and what happened to journalist and their news organizations under Hugo.

All the above.

Or at least, that’s the desired result.

Might not work out the way it was planned.

Don't be foolish, your lives are useful to further the leftist Agenda to disarm America. Progressives can not force a Big Government Socialist agenda on an armed society...take it up with your union bosses, they will gladly explain it to you.

In my opinion the newspaper has invaded the privacy, endangered the safety and caused mental anguish to all those people whose names and/or addresses were printed. Disgusting!

This paper is going to be on the wrong side of a class-action lawsuit. I am certain that the penalty will be heavy and be based upon the words ‘malicious intent’.

My father-in-law used to have this sign posted on his garage door. And he meant it.

Every since that newspaper printed those names and addresses and everyone is condemning the NRA, I have started wearing my NRA hat, and I can’t stand to wear a hat.

Above and beyond the obvious, this seems like a golden opportunity for the Sheriff to stick it to many of the inmates who make such threats.

That is, more and more police are being equipped with pinhole cameras and audio recording that is very difficult to detect, even if you know what to look for.

Imagine if when one of these scum come up for sentencing or parole, the judge or parole board got to see a time stamped video with audio of them threatening a jailer and his family? And this is not some grainy surveillance video you see in a convenience stores, but is clear enough to eliminate any doubt about who is saying what.

Even just doing this for a week or two, a prosecutor might decide to file a whole bunch of charges against a lot of inmates.

And once word got back to the inmates that their bad behavior was being recorded and used against them, all but the looniest would shut up a lot.

The leftist agenda is fueled by hate and totally bereft of any thought of consequences. Furtherance of their cause outweighs any concern for innocent blood.

Being put on that list probably reduces your property value if you are law enforcement.

Unintended consequences?

Since they have published the list what are their responsibilities of validating the list and keeping the information current? Say an address erroneously on the list is robbed by someone looking for a gun is the paper responsible?. If a gun owner moves is that address pulled off the list?

Remember with "Wayback" the Internet is forever.

Don’t forget potential loss of property value because who would buy a house on the list?

The psychotic left and communists are itching for a fight and quite frankly they are forcing many people to consider options never thought of before.

F every last on them. i have lost many friends over obama and the leftist communism going on and quite frankly those people are my enemies at this point.

Where are the leftist Domestic Violence advocates on this issue with at-risk-women who obtained weapons to protect themselves... whose stalkers now know where to find them?

Nowhere. They don’t really care about women. They only care about their cushy $100K+/yr taxpayer salaries that fund their leftist army of anti-family/anti-America rad-fems.

Nonetheless, this puts leftists in a corner, defending one leftist agenda against another, which will all inevitably run afoul of each other, as none of their agendas are built on logic or history and are only built on intolerance, emotion, envy, greed, division, lunacy and destruction.

Bingo. Most of those groups are as you describe them, far leftists first and foremost.
