NY Paper to Publish Additional
Gun Owners´ Names, Addresses

Breitbart Big Journalism, by Warner Todd Huston

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/29/2012 6:55:49 PM

The New York newspaper that drew criticism for publishing the names and addresses of hundreds of legal gun permit holders is doubling down by publishing the personal information of even more law-abiding gun owners. To great criticism, the Journal News published an interactive map showing the names and addresses of the legal gun owners in Westchester and Rockland counties just before Christmas. Now the paper has announced it will next publish the names and addresses of permit-holders in Putnam County with an eye toward eventually politicizing the names and addresses of every gun owner in the state.

RE #9

True, its a matter of public record. However, the intention of registering a gun was largely due to law enforcement. And there is a difference between you going to the county and doing a search and a news paper publishing everything.

Perhaps Briebart could publish the divorce records of everyone in that county....after all its in the public record. Or perhaps publish an interactive map of everyone that´s been adopted... or every minority home owner... or an interactive map over every registered democrat that voted in the election. Maybe publish an interactive map of luxury car owners, or a map of corporate executives, or business owners, licensed pets????

There is freedom of the press and then there is the abuse of the private citizen. This news paper is ABUSING the public record, specifically to pressure private, law abiding citizens. If this is allowed to stand, there is no end to what trouble the press can get into.

And most amazing ......... the press cant be bothered with vetting Obama, reporting ob Fast and Furious, Benghazi etc, but they have the time to badger private citizens.

I don´t care if people know I own guns. In fact, I own lots of guns - and there´s no complete record of all of them. And I buy badass bullets for those guns to increase their stopping power. And I have a Concealed Carry Permit so one can never know if I am armed or not - so you´d better watch what you do around me. Or maybe I am just pulling your leg and want to tell you that you shouldn´t believe everything you read. Or maybe you should. Just remember to be nice around me.

FTA: "Now the paper has announced it will next publish the names and addresses of permit-holders in Putnam County with an eye toward eventually politicizing the names and addresses of every gun owner in the state."
Interesting. I´m looking forward to seeing the names and addresses of all those folks in NY, especially the, uh, famous ones. You know, the politicians, entertainers, television folks, and especially those good people on the news programs. Can´t wait CynDee. What´s that? You won´t be publishing those peoples´ names? Come again? That might endanger them? So, you are flexing your 1st Amendment rights, just not toward your lefty famous buddies. Kinda being selective, huh?
We should check. Did she name everyone with a permit in those areas, or did she leave some people off the map? If she left anyone off of the map, she is a fraud, a grandstander and an incrediby reckless woman.

New York State has no restriction on long gun purchase, no requirement to register, or license requirement. These are required for handguns. So, not having your name and address listed doesn’t mean there is not a firearm in the home. Also, almost beyond belief to some, there may even be handguns not duly reported to the authorities in some dwellings, particularly those of professional criminals.

As a CCW holder, we are not allowed to show our carry- that why it´s called "Concealed Carry". Even if your shirt flies up in a breeze and someone sees your gun and calls a cop, you can actually be arrested for what is called "Brandishing". You must keep your weapon concealed at all times. So, this bunch of idiots in NY publishing the names is kind of a good thing. I, personally, can´t tell people I´m carrying a weapon. But, the loony publisher can do that for me. To me- that´s actually a good thing.

#27, you can´t tell people you are carrying, but you can tell them you have a CCW permit. Maybe they will make the assumption that you are carrying. If someone asks "Are you carrying"? you can always respond "I´m not allowed to tell you I am carrying" and let them assume what they will.

#12 stated it perfectly. There are many things that are available in public record, but most people would be horrified to have that information broadcast to the world. And that is exactly what the paper did...BROADCAST the information to the world. That is totally irresponsible. You do remember that even with a free press and free speech, there is such a thing as a limitation on rights when it infringes on the rights of others. You can yell "fire" in a crowded theater but expect to pay the consequences for your actions as people get stampeded to death in the panic. Even if no one is hurt, they can still arrest you for endangering the lives of others,

Ages and ages ago, I worked for a local newspaper chain. We never had problems, because the managing editor refused to hire any journalism or communications majors. After the new owner forced that editor out, the very liberal new editor decided to publish a very striking color photo of a car fire in which a mother of 3 was killed on the cover of the year-end review edition.

The family sued, claiming it no longer had any news value, as the accident had happened at the beginning of the year. The courts agreed, all through the appeal process.

Legal gun owners following the law are not newsworthy. It was an attempt to intimidate them. They should sue.

This newspaper is clearly up to something, and we have no reason to assume that they are just doing it on their own. They are doubling down, and doing it rather outrageously, attempting to inhibit law abiding private citizens from exercising their constitutional rights. That´s quite a big fight to pick. Why are they doing it? What are they trying to accomplish? What are they trying to make happen? What response are they trying to invite? I have an idea.

Could they be attempting to bait the NRA into responding? Could they be attempting to lure the NRA into an expensive legal battle with the ACLU, pitting the First Amendment against the Second Amendment? Could they be attempting to bait the NRA into depleting their resources over this nonsense rather than preserving it for the bigger fight over the gun control legislation we will see passed in 2013?

Almost every home in Texas has, as a standard item, a directory of all the people in the area that own guns and are, therefore, armed. We use it all the time for many different purposes. We call it "the phone book."

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends.

"Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
