Skip to comments.Recall Point: Journal News FOIA Requests Asked For 'How Many and What Types' of Guns Owned
Posted on 01/15/2013 9:19:41 AM PST by Nachum
The Lower Hudson Valley's Journal News based in White Plains, New York has been very tight-lipped since it published an interactive map showing the names and addresses of pistol permit holders in Westchester and Rockland Counties. The Washington Post's Erik Wemple reports that the paper has hired "a Manhattan public relations, marketing and government affairs firm" whose job appears to involve denying interview requests and issuing "no comment" statements.
Predictably, the one media outlet which has been granted access by the Journal News is the New York Times, whose Christine Haughney filed a report on January 6. In that dispatch, she quoted Dwight R. Worley, the "tax reporter" who cooked up the idea of publishing the map, putting forth the following defense of his handiwork: "The people have as much of a right to know who owns guns in their communities as gun owners have to own weapons." How disingenuous, as will be seen after the jump.

Thanks for the post. Our local talk radio jock was talking about it this morning.....but didn’t say where he read it.
Maybe someone should publish a map of the names and addresses of all the employees of that paper.
Saturday, January 19th at noon at your state capitol.
Show up en masse.
No excuses. No hoping others will show so that you don't have to.
Then the Urinal News and the Slimes must discover and publish the addresses of all criminals, gang members, mafiosi, etc who hold illegal guns.
If the petty bureaucrats in DC order us to register our weapons (for those who have any that were not lost in a boating accident or sold), this will provide yet another incentive to ignore that blatantly unconstitutional demand.
Kristallnacht II. You know it’s coming. That’s why they want names and addresses. Gun owners and the shops that supply them are the 21st century “Juden.” Obamajugen will gather in torchlight parades and start by breaking windows. And, as in 1938, the regime will do nothing to discourage it.
Why stop there? Why not photos and tax records and abortion and drug abuse and arrest records of all employees and their families?
No privacy. Who is gay? who has killed babies? Get it all out here so we can see!!
Is this the guy?
Ironic, considering that Worley is a gun-owner himself...lol.
I own a dozen of each weapon known to man, including stingers a few tanks Obama’s “football”( please don’t tell) and codes, Howitzers, carriers, destroyers ICBM’s and a sling shot and some pebbles, even a rolled up newspaper, look out!
When The Journal News published a listing of gun owners in the New York counties of Westchester, Rockland, and Putnam, readers and denizens of the interwebs were downright perturbed.
One site, For What Its Worth, turned the tables on Journal News Editor Cyndee Royle and the rest of her staff by publishing their public records. Robert Cox even created an interactive map of the FWIW data, just like the one that The Journal News published.
Looks like the anger directed at Cyndee Royle Lambert (her married name) has caused the woman who so proudly noted the protests as some sort of badge of honor is pulling back from the web.
Her private Facebook page is down, her Twitter account is protected, and her work Facebook account is over-run by commenters chastising her.

CynDee Royle, Journal News Editor, Receives Suspicious Package Containing Fecal Matter
Public Safety Commissioner David Chong would not say whether the white shipping envelope delivered to the home of CynDee Royle, The Journal News editor and vice president/news, contained a message or threat.
City police and members of the Westchester County Bomb Squad were dispatched to a McBride Avenue home Thursday afternoon on a report of a suspicious package in a mailbox.
Looks like him.
The “regime” may not do anything to discourage that behavior. I, however, have some plans of my own.
In 1938, the Jews had nothing to shoot back with.
If Kristallnacht repeats, things will get ugly and flesh will be cut, with hot lead.
I like that. Rival gang members would know where to go to kill rivals. Maybe we could get rid of about 10,000 of them.
