Here Is a List of All the A*****es Handsome Law-Abiding Citizens Who Own Guns in New York City

Last month, the Journal News sparked a firestorm of protest when it published a mappable database of every licensed gun owner in Westchester and Rockland counties, north of New York City. The paper obtained the data—which New York state law explicitly and unambiguously demands be made public—through open records requests. The reaction was swift and furious—gun rights and privacy advocates published the names and addresses of the paper's editors in retaliation, and the paper (ironically) hired armed guards to protect against threats.

Laws need to be changed quickly! This only spreads hate among the gun haters and of course enlightens the criminals. Makes me want to get a gun while I can.

Will it take some court action or maybe a few deaths resulting in this kind of disclosure to change the law?

The published gun owners of Westchester need to do only two things:

1) Organize a Committee of Safety

2) and buy a lot of ammunition.

How to set up a Committee of Safety:

So when someone goes to your house cause you don’t have a gun you shoot them and get into trouble for shooting the intruder with an unregistered gun.....

So you are either in danger of having your gun stolen or a criminal if you have to use it to defend yourself....

We are all criminals or victims and that is the way big brother likes it...

“Makes me want to get a gun while I can.”

That might be kind of difficult. And if you do, ammo might be a problem too.

Trouble is I want to be law abiding, it’s just that they make it so difficult (and usually more expensive). You would think that it would be the other way around.

Agree! I expect that ammunition will be heavily regulated in the near future since they can’t seem to get a handle on limiting guns. Government always seeks to find a way to enslave the populace and of course directed by the left but with way too much Republican acquiescence.

I wonder if these newspapers have consulted their legal departments.

The first time there is a homicide in one of the unarmed homes and the defendant is caught & testifies he picked that home because he know the occupants were unarmed, that paper will go bankrupt.

This is really dumb. Given that guns are somewhat hard to get in NY, it is like giving crooks a map of where to steal their next weapon. Kind of like in the old days when people would have their vacation/honeymoon plans published in the Social section of their paper. They learned that was a good way to get the home burgled in their absence. Now such trips are only mentioned after the homeowner returns.

I keep this handy to remind my self of the big picture.

....................

From Ayn Rand's, Atlas Shrugged:

Did you really think we want those laws observed? said Dr. Ferris.

We want them to be broken. You'd better get it straight that it's not a bunch of boy scouts you're up against... We're after power and we mean it...

There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals.

Well, when there aren't enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws

Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens?
What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt.

Now that's the system, Mr. Reardon, that's the game, and once you understand it, you'll be much easier to deal with.

Expect home reloading equipment to also be heavily regulated! That does seem to be the way things are going.

Criminals are looking for ‘gun free homes’ - - easy pickings. You don’t want to be in that group.

Deagle, you might want to buy a gun so your name will appear on a gun owner list in the event this stunt is pulled by your local paper.

That would make you a columnist for the Washington Post. And you would get off scot-free.

You (legally) cannot in NY. You have to arrange a meeting with the pistol permit office and get the gun added to your license before you can ever take possession of it from a gun shop. Private party sellers would be unwise to sell a pistol to someone else and neglect to deregister it from their license.

God, I’m glad I left that hellhole.

Ammo doesn’t need to be regulated, have you tried buying any lately? Shelves mostly empty here and dealers typically don’t know when they’ll be getting more.

Think and hope that this is only due to the high sales due to Obama. Doubt that it will continue - much longer.

Some laws are meant to be broken.

Tyrants follow no law.

They could just as easily print the names and addresses of every Republican, Conservative and Libertarian Party member in the city.

It's panic buying I think .... doesn't look like the end is anywhere in sight though. When I can find .223 or 5.56 it's priced at $1.90 - $2.20/rd which is ridiculous.

Glad I'm pretty well stocked up is all I can say. I can wait for the panic buying to be over before I resume. Some folks are going to look back and realize how stupid buying up ammo at these prices has been.
