Police are investigating whether a White Plains, NY home break-in was the result of the homeowner being pinpointed on the handgun permit map recently published by a NY newspaper.

According to a Westchester/Rockland Newsday report, two burglars broke into the home and went for the safe that contained the owner’s guns. The victim, a man in his 70s, was not home at the time. The burglars were unable to open the safe, and one suspect was taken into custody.

The Journal News has been harshly criticized...

Shows a propensity for posting from a single source and a single “author”.

Also a tendency to post as “news”, and in excerpted form.

I’m thinking serial blogpimp here.

Self-promoting and shameless.

Include the advertisers. Keep at it until convention goes the way of tobacco lawsuits.

How did the paper get these addresses? (I’ve not been able to follow much news lately and searching for 3 letter words like ‘gun’ and/or ‘map’ doesn’t work on FR)

Harshly criticized...

Ya think?

Even a bad lawyer oughta be able to totally own them in a civil suit.

They are just as liable and complicit here as if they had published the names and addresses of people who had big screen TVs. Or large amounts of jewelry.

Spot on. The left has been trained to dispense with critical thinking and moral absolutes and instead based their thinking on moral relativity and "the ends justify they means" type thinking. So, for example, they can see 3,000 dead on 9/11 and say "it's tragic BUT.... if we hadn't blah blah blah". These people would look at this graphic and say "It's terrible that so many had to die BUT if they hadn't owned guns it would have never happened."

It's why the leftists worry me. Underneath their faux persona of "compassion" and "fairness" they are totalitarians who merely lack the power to crush our necks under their boots in the name of whatever "greater good" they come up with. But they are slowly taking that power while the right stands by without a champion wiling to challenge them. I fear it may just be a matter of time.

As a demonstration of the mindset, consider pulitzer prize winning reporter Walter Duranty, who witnessed first hand the forced starvation of millions in the Ukraine but covered it up and instead run stories of a Soviet utopia moving forward mightily with prosperity for all. When confronted with the reality of the horrible conditions he would acknowledge things might be bad but would deny the truth he himself witnessed about purges and forced famines. He'd just say "you have to break some eggs to make an omelet." In other words, starving millions is okay if it enables the state to meet their five year plan. This is the left.

The newspapers zeal to promote their agenda will come back to haunt them.

It will if the conservatives use it as a political football instead of the constitutional issue.

This can be framed as a rich versus poor issue.
Living in a gated community with 24/7 security, children attend private school with security, and working in a secured building, I can see why the upper classes don't see a need for someone to own a gun.

I’m thinking serial blogpimp here.

Hmmm, yes, it looks that way. Now, if only the story were not interesting and important, I guess you might have a point. But since the content happens to beat hollow the usual state-run blather that's posted here and whined about, I'd say you don't have a point.

I think it's a waste of time to strain out a gnat and swallow a camel in cases like this. This story actually contains important news. With all due respect for law and order, this "shameless" story contributed a lot more to my FR reading experience than your finger-wagging post about it. For "pimp" alerts, please save your powder for the bores.

Search the first line of text of the blog post.

This story is everywhere. This pimp has re-written
a version of it and is pimping it for hits, using
FR as an advertising platform.

Personally, I disagree with this deceptive practice
and will make note of it when I see it.

If relaying this “interesting and important” story
were the goal, it could have been done from a credible
source. Without being re-written after being essentially stolen.

Your mileage may vary.

Being a registered gun owner in NY is public info.

I tried it on the "Give a d***" meter a number of times, but just couldn't get the old girl to respond. I can sympathize with keeping track of how the site is being used, but it just seems to me that the posts we don't want are the boring or uninformative ones. If someone gets to me first with something I didn't know, that has value to me.

I think these things should be policed for quality, and go light on procedure if something reads well.
