Posted By:JoniTx, 12/24/2012 5:53:10 PM

A newspaper in New York has received a wave of criticism from its readers after publishing the names and addresses of all of the individuals with handgun or pistol permits in its coverage area. Hundreds of residents in New York’s Westchester and Rockland counties were surprised to find their names and addresses listed on a map posted by The Journal News on Sunday. Users can click any dot on the map to see which of their neighbors has a permit for a gun. The map sparked more than 500 comments from readers

Another way to look at it is, the criminals can see where the gun holders are, & go someplace else to rob, or whatever makes them happy.....!!

The newspaper, of course, simply wanted to ´shame´ the gun owners somehow. Actually, they did the equivilant of putting up an alarm warning sign for the armed homeowners.

Maybe the unarmed homeowners should sue the paper for advertising their helplessness.

For anyone wanted to know what the fuss was about gun registration here you go. Now they know where they live now you can be targeted. Police State here we come. The left thinks the Presidential Election was for Permanent Dictator. This Media is part of the Police state. Who will be targeted next?

Return the favor: publish all the details about every leftard of note. Their security detail info, their kids schools/madrassas and their security details, who they are cheating with and their security details etc. etc... How dependent they are on men with guns.

Then ask them at every opportunity why their lives are more valuable than ordinary folks.

Janet Hasson, 3 Gate House Lane, Mamaroneck, NY 10534.

Phone number: (248) 594-2197; you might also try (914) 525-1923, but the area code is just a guess on the assumption that this number is a land line.

Dittos to those pointing out this newspaper has just made the case against registering the owners &/or concealed carriers of firearms. More people will buy through private sales & not bother to get their concealed carry permits when they learn about this. That doesn´t mean fewer people will be armed, however.

Happily, the woman responsible for publishing this information, one Janet Hasson, has just had her name, picture, home address, phone numbers and multiple pictures of the inside and outside of her home published on several sites.

Sauce for the goose, sauce for the gander.

Soooooo . . . as a home invasion burglar, a rapist, a drug addled thief looking for something to steal and hock for my next fix, I can assume the names that weren´t published are Gun Free Homes?

And the irony is, the Gun Grabbers will believe they´ve done a public service.

If my name wasn´t published, I would be afraid.

Aren´t ACLU lawyers more dangerous to the public? They are the ones responsible for mental cases living next door to you. The sheeple bleating in the article claims he deserves to know if his neighbor is armed, because that knowledge ´might´ have changed his decision to buy his home. Well tool, your neighbor carrying a NY state permit has been investigated for months and passed the kind of vetting that you would have a hard time passing. You really need to focus on the other neighbor who is taking massive doses of mood elevators to maintain ´normal´ daily functions.

Sorry for the second post, but this just stuns me.

Doesn´t this idiot Liberal publisher understand that he´s just painted a big ole bull´s eye on the homes of a sizable number of his subscribers?

How a Liberal´s mind [using the word advisedly] works is something none of us will ever truly be able to comprehend. The vast majority of them are mentally ill and should be put away for the good of society.

All gun free households should file a class action suit against the newspaper and the publisher. As dangerous as it is to the privacy of gun owners, it is a map to all criminals in finding gun free, easy access homes. That doesn´t matter when it comes to promoting the self righteousness of liberals. My guess is Janet Hansen is loving the attention.

The first 10 homes to be broken into by crooks wanting to steal the guns, now have a responsibility to kill said crooks. Otherwise a lot or protection guns will be stolen, and perhaps used on the (former) owners.

Is this captioned "Robbery Zone"?

How malicious can they be to set these people up for those wanting/willing to invade their property, steal what they have so that they can, in fact, carry on the mission of our current President.

Nothing surprises me anymore!

Is this the country I once knew? No!

America has stooped to the lowest denominator.

President Obama owns this reality.

Remember the kindness/thoughtfulness of President George W. Bush, who, when he did cry, he meant it, for he had/has a heart for his fellowman. He has a heart after God and is not afraid to honor Him.

Obama has risen to power by the progressive movement/unions/liberal media, who endeavor to deny the average citizen their rights, usurping God even, if they can. They are a godless group who has established their own person to "assume" he is above the rest of US.

God´s sovereignty will eventually destroy what is going on, but sadly, we might be involved for not having come against evil when it was presented!

There are none so blind as those who will not see! Food for thought!

Pray for America! God is waiting for your call!

All have said that armed homes are safe from intruders. Think of the delight of thieves looking for guns, who now have the locations of their prey. Sure there´s danger, but with a little surveillance they can choose homes with weapons which are ripe for the picking.

I hope this back fires on the editors. Any victim of a crime wave can blame the news paper for targeting them (the gunless).

To transfer a gun requires completing a form with a FFL (federal firearm license) who is obliged to keep it in perpetuity. As I recall, the form was confidential. I am more disturbed that the feds would share that info with the newspaper. As an earlier poster explains, this is a good reason to avoid registration.

The liberals do this to make gun owners social pariahs. You can bet the Brady Campaign, VPC, and other Soros allied groups will follow up by contacting the employers of the people named to try to get them fired from their jobs.

They tried to do this in Illinois by having leftist papers sue the Illinois State Police to shake loose the database of FOID card holders so they could publish it. Our Attorney General not only refused to fight the papers, she joined them and demanded the State Police hand it over. Fortunately, the State Police resisted until pro-2nd amendment groups got a injunction to block release until a law could be sent through the Legislature banning it permanently.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — The Malaysian jetliner missing for more than a week was deliberately diverted and continued flying for more than six hours after severing contact with the ground, meaning it could have gone as far northwest as Kazakhstan or into the Indian Ocean’s southern reaches, Malaysia’s leader said Saturday. Prime Minister Najib Razak’s statement confirmed days of mounting speculation that the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 to Beijing was not accidental. It also refocused the investigation into the flight’s 12-person crew and 227 passengers, and underlined the complicated task for searchers who already have been scouring vast

The Associated Press and the National Journal have corrected erroneous stories they ran about Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), misquoting a remark that he made at an anti-abortion rally. On Wednesday at the Susan B. Anthony List “Campaign for Life Gala and Summit,” Cruz reminded his audience that pro-abortion advocates had chanted “Hail to Satan” last year at a rally in Austin Texas. The AP attributed to Cruz a remark that said abortion rights activists were “Satan Worshipers.” The AP article, written by Philip Elliott, was corrected on Thursday and re-printed with Cruz’s actual statement.

In one of the thousands of Clinton administration papers released Friday came a hint of what is to come if Hillary Rodham Clinton decides to run for president in 2016. In a January 1996 memo to White House communications director and speechwriter Don Baer, President Clinton´s political advisor Paul Begala wrote that in the upcoming State of the Union address “it’s imperative that the president defend the honor of the first lady tonight, with the whole country watching.” “The Republicans are attacking her without compunction, in part because they know the Democrats are too ... to retaliate,” Begala wrote, including a

We do not expect the shock to be obliterative, dislocating to both body and mind.” We cannot know, she says, when we lose the person we love—as she lost her husband John Gregory Dunne 11 years ago—“the unending absence that follows, the void, the very opposite of meaning, the relentless succession of moments during which we will confront the experience of meaninglessness itself.” The tragedy

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y.- After frigid February, March promises relief, at least in the form of holidays celebrated with food for the rest of this month. There will be corned beef on St. Patrick´s Day and sfingi on St. Joseph´s Day. (See Mr. Gragnani´s online article on Monday for some of those Italian traditions.) Yesterday was Pi Day — it will be the 3/14 number to fete — an event that required the enjoyment of food with a circumference like, say, a blueberry pie. But does anyone acknowledge the Ides of March anymore? Today, the 15th, after all, marks the 1,970th

The Obama administration is planning a workaround to the health care law that would extend the March 31 enrollment deadline for health care coverage for some users if technical glitches prevent them from signing up on HealthCare.gov, The Wall Street Journal reported. Under the plan, people who can demonstrate that they were unable to sign up for coverage before the deadline because of website problems would be able to sign up after March 31, officials familiar with the matter told the newspaper. Details of the workaround are still being hammered out, including how long the special sign-up period would last

President Obama warned young people that if they don´t sign up for Obamacare by March 31, they will face a penalty -- if they can afford it. During an interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest, Obama explained that young people might be charged a fine if they don´t get insured. "If you can afford it — you just decide you don´t want to get it because your attitude is ´nothing´s ever going to happen to me´ — then you´ll be charged a penalty," Obama explained. Obama was careful to specify that people who can´t afford Obamacare will not suffer a

The day before the Iowa caucuses in 2008, I wrote about the massive crowds of young people at Barack Obama rallies, noting that his candidacy would collapse “if they don’t show up.” The next night, after Obama’s victory celebration in Des Moines, Obama strategist Steve Hildebrand spotted me in a crowd. “The kids showed up!” he said fiercely. They did. But where are they now? An army of 15 million voters under 30 swept Obama past Hillary Clinton and John McCain and to the presidency in 2008. More than 12 million helped him return in 2012. But now his presidency is on the line — and the Obama youth are abandoning him in

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) may be popular among hard-line conservatives nationally, but back home he’s in some hot water. According to an Emerson College poll, his favorability is underwater, by a margin of 43 to 48 percent. Moreover, his favorable/unfavorable rating with women is 39 to 50 percent. I asked the poll director for further detail and found: Republicans: 74 percent favorable, 18 percent unfavorable ~Democrats: 8 percent favorable, 82 percent unfavorable ~Independents: 38 percent favorable, 50 percent unfavorable

President Barack Obama lamented on Friday that he´s been unfairly criticized for wearing loose jeans. “I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans,” he joked in a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest. “The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans." One fashion faux pas at the 2009 MLB All-Star baseball game was a costly learning experience, he added. "There was one episode like four years ago in which I was wearing some loose jeans mainly because I was out on the pitcher’s mound and I didn’t want to feel confined while I was pitching and I think I’ve paid

President Barack Obama hit back at critics calling him out for his "mom jeans. "I´ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans," Obama said Friday in an interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest. "The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans. There was one episode like four years ago in which I was wearing some loose jeans, mainly because I was out on the pitcher´s mound and I didn´t want to feel confined while I was pitching, and I think I´ve paid my penance for that. I got whacked pretty good. Since that time, my jeans fit very well."

Scientists who don´t believe in catastrophic man-made global warming should be put in prison, a US philosophy professor argues on a website funded by the UK government. Lawrence Torcello - assistant professor of philosophy at Rochester Institute of Technology, NY, writes in an essay at The Conversation that climate scientists who fail to communicate the correct message about "global warming" should face trial for "criminal negligence". (H/T Bishop Hill) The Conversation - no relation of Breitbart´s blogging chatroom - is a website promoting articles by academics and funded by nineteen of Britain´s leading universities, as well as several government agencies, including the

Last week, the U.S. Tenth Circuit decided a case that should reverberate on Capitol Hill. In Kerr v. Hickenlooper, five Colorado legislators sought “standing” to challenge a state constitutional amendment. The three-judge panel — consisting of Carter and Clinton appointees — ruled in favor of the legislators’ standing. This decision should embolden members of Congress who correctly believe that President Obama has encroached upon Congress’ constitutional authority. Indeed, Congress should do no less in defending its authority than the five Colorado state legislators. Many members of Congress believe that numerous presidential actions — delaying various provisions of the Affordable Care

In an interview with Vocativ.com, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) expressed a desire for factions within the Republican Party to “agree to disagree” on hot-button social issues so that the GOP tent may expand to include more young people and alternative viewpoints. Asked whether the general consensus at last week’s Conservative Political Action Conference was that the party must butt out of social issues, Paul replied: I think that the Republican Party, in order to get bigger, will have to agree to disagree on social issues. The Republican Party is not going to give up on having quite a few people

Here´s an astonishing poll: David Freddoso at Conservative Intelligence Briefing links to a report by the Washington Post´s Aaron Blake that West Virginia 3rd district incumbent Rep. Nick Rahall trails Republican challenger state Sen. Evan Jenkins by a 54-percent to 40-percent margin. The poll was conducted by the Tarrance Group, a Republican firm which, like several Democratic and other Republican firms, has had a good record for reliability over the years. This is astonishing for several reasons. Rahall, first elected in 1976, is now the seventh most senior member of the House, with three of the more senior members retiring

A top Republican campaigning for immigration reform is warning that America needs at least 1 million more immigrants every year just for basic farming and construction jobs, not ban like some in the party are advocating. Carlos Gutierrez, Commerce secretary under former President George W. Bush, said that without more immigrants, businesses won´t be able to grow because there aren´t enough workers available. And helping them could boost the Republican Party, added the former Kellogg Co. executive. Speaking at a Republican confab, he said that comprehensive immigration reform passed in the Senate and rejected by

Columbia, SC - Four of U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham´s announced challengers in June´s Republican primary pledged support for each other Thursday if any of them end up in a runoff with the Seneca incumbent. But a news conference announcing their alliance on the State House steps took an unexpected turn when the most minor of the candidates, Dave Feliciano of Spartanburg, took the podium and called Graham "ambiguously gay." Feliciano said, "It´s about time that South Carolina (says) hey, We´re tired of the ambiguously gay senator from South Carolina. We´re ready for a new leader to merge the Republican Party.
