Breaking: Journal News Taking Down Gun Map
The Wall Street Journal ^ | 18 January 2013 | Jacob Gershman

Posted on 01/18/2013 4:27:16 PM PST by MinorityRepublican

A New York suburban newspaper that came under criticism for publishing the names and addresses of pistol-permit holders has decided to remove the map from its web site, according to a spokesman for the publication.

Just before Christmas, in the wake of the Newtown school massacre, the Journal News published a map of the names and addresses of tens of thousands of pistol-permit holders in Rockland and Westchester counties outside of New York City.

The newspaper immediately faced a barrage of criticism from gun-owner advocates and some local public-safety officials. Conservative bloggers retaliated against the paper, posting the names and home addresses of Journal News editors and executives.

“One of our core missions as a newspaper is to empower our readers with as much information as possible on the critical issues they face, and guns have certainly become a top issue since the massacre in nearby Newtown, Conn.”

This is so crazy- they empowered thieves to better select which homes they are going to break into! Journalism has truly become a joke.

Gee, Gomer, I sure hope that nobody copied it during the four whole weeks it was available on the site. That'd be turrble.

I reviewed my states gun laws and here's something it says:

Unlike some other states, the identities of permit holders are specifically exempted from open records requests."

Way too little, WAY too late, IMHO. I hope these guys lose subscribers by the truckload and have to fold. What the Journal News did was nothing less than the act of a bully. It was nothing less than an overt and blatant attempt to intimidate and marginalize a group of private citizens for no other reason than their exercise of a constitutional right that was unpalatable to the paper’s editorial board.

After two gun thefts from the published addresses.

Also, once something is on the Net, it is gone. There is no retrieving it.

Someone should sue the kiester off that publication.

I wonder how many lawsuits are in the works.

It's a bad economy, no doubt there are lawyers in need of work and a pay check, and this looks like some low hanging fruit.

It may be too early, but the potential schadenfreude from this would be quite savory.

Spare me the journalist hero bullshit Ms. Hasson, you attempted to make pariahs out of and put in danger along with their families, a section of the community you serve.

You are a disgrace.

There needs to be a HUGE class-action lawsuit against this paper and owners. Drive them out of business thru bankruptcy via lawsuit and boycott. That’s how the left fights and we should turn it right around on them and give them a real good taste of their own crap. Then go after this ugly hag personally via lawsuit as well. Watch em twist and squirm as they die a slow agonizing financial death.

Perhaps they have inadvertently served a function.

For all the people who claim to think even more weapons registration and/or background checks of law abiding citizens serves any purpose at all, think again.

They don’t give a damn that they “empowered” their readers with false info, or outdated info, or misleading info. I hope those readers who are victimized or traumatized or in ANY way negatively affected by this find a pit bull attorney to sue the asses off every coward journalist at that paper.

I just want to know when they are going to let their armed guards go? Hypocrites!

It’s too damned late. The damage has already been done. But they may have done us a favor, in an ‘unintended consequences’ way. Now we all know what the results can and probably will be if we allow these leftists to force us to register our weapons and get on a similar list. It’s an almost certainty that some leftist, some where, some time, will release that list to the public/criminals again. Only way to keep that from happening is to refuse to get on the damned list.

Chicken Shits! They can’t stand their own heat.

Hope all the lawsuits create a Hellfire for them and the Journal paper, its owners, key leaders and relevant staff members.

Oh heck. Make it a living hell for all of these liberal bastards. They acquiested in what their paper published without concern for the safety of those the map/article was aimed at (i.e. their neighbors and friends).

I don’t remember any staff protests, do you?

The worm has turned and it has, like the Sand Worms of “Dune”, some big, nasty and sharp teeth. Time for revenge and payback, not a slap on the wrist. More like a baseball bat to the head.

If the Left wants to play hardball, they had better wear a helmet, a metal cup and body padding because we, the potential victims of their perfidity and malice, swing a big Louisville slugger, hit the ball very hard, and slide into home-plate with our spiked shoes aimed up.

(Gee I love baseball analogies).

We have finally taken the gloves off and put on medieval-style metal gauntlets. If the Left hits us in the face, we won’t turn the other cheek. We’ll slap their’s off with lawsuits and truthful information.

[”Leave him alone. He’s on a roll” - Animal House]

I guess I’m just pissed at the liberals who show absolutely no regards for others outside of their mentally ill groupings.

Now is the time to strike back. My daughter helps guard our local elementary. My son is a police officer. I’m a little too old to do much guard duty (but will if needed), but I can write about these issues as I have done for the past 40+ years, and make suggestions on how to defeat the Left (which I have been fighting since 1965 in college).

It is time that all conservatives and sane moderates unite to destroy (not just defeat), the Left/Liberals who are destroying our government, society, culture and schools, as well as endangering decent people along the way.
