In response to Gannett´s Jounal News headquartered in White Plains, New York publishing an interactive map containing the names and addresses of all pistol permit holders in Westchester and Rockland Counties (previous related posts are here and here), blogger Robert Cox at NewRochelleTalk.com (HT Instapundit) has produced an interactive map at a post entitled "Where are the Journal News employees in your neighborhood?" It contains names, addresses, and various forms of Internet presence. Some of his narrative follows the jump:The map indicates the addresses of all Journal News Employees in the New York Tri-State area.
Why don´t they publish a map of each neighborhood showing the locations of homes that do not have a resident with a pistol permit. I´m sure the thieves in the neighborhood would find that to be useful information.
It would be useful if this mapping listed not only the employees of this newspaper, but whether or not they are registered gun owners. Those who are not should get a gold star so they are more easily identified by... well, whomever may find it interesting that they are not armed.
Back when newspapers were powerful media bullies that could make or break politicians, start wars, and manipulate public opinion on a whim, there was a saying that went something like "never pick a fight with somenone who buys ink by the barrel." Apparently Ganmnet didn´t get the memo that those times are as dead as the dodo (to use an anachronistic metaphor their editors might be familiar with). The new, 21st Century catch phrase might as well be "never pick a fight with law abiding private citizens with internet skills." Hahahahahaha.
It would be nice to think of Journalist trying to get to sleep, but every time they close their eyes they see an angry, gun, toten redneck walking toward their house. Sure seems they were trying to incite angry Metrosexuals at guns owners don´t you think.

I don´t even understand the purpose of the original article, publishing the names and addresses...?? Was it hoped that an angry surly mob, a la OWS, would descend down upon these homes and demand that the owners give up the indicated weapons? Were they supposed to storm in each house and take those weapons away from the owners? Or were they supposed to just stand outside and repeat evil-sounding chants?
Our home has a window sticker that says ´´Insured by Smith & Wesson´´ ... for a reason.
One last thing: IIRC, the uproar over the Bushmaster rifle is completely out of line. I read early on that the police found the rifle in the shooter´s CAR... he did not take it into the school - only handguns. Did I imagine that?
Neighborhood Watch: One of the first things you learn when you join such a program is that criminals generally aren´t criminal because they´re uneducated and stupid, it´s because they´re lazy. At least that was what one of the speakers, a college graduate who was a former drug-dealer, asserted.
Related to that assertion is if there are two identical houses, side by side, and one has motion-activated security lights and deadbolts while the other does not, guess which house the burglar will pick?
So, yes, the houses with gun-owners as residents are likely going to be left alone while the houses without protection will be targeted. They should be the ones complaining about the published map.
Maybe the paper did gun-owners a favor.
#12, please see "Georgia town requiring gun ownership undeterred by massacre" at:
With a 30,000 population the town has had only about four out of nine homicides involving guns in the last nine years.
I love the suggestion at #11. I hope someone takes the time to publish the names of gun owners who are employed at Journal News, as well as employees of the NYT, the WaPo and TV the ´newsies´ who complain about gun ownership. We can call it the Rosie Rule. .... Remember when Rosie O´Donnell viciously ranted about gun owners but made an exception for the body guards of her children?
It´s past time for rules and established laws to apply to EVERYONE, including members of Congress, journalists and Hollywood stars, producers and directors.
Great! Now, up the ante. Add information as to how many residents live in the home, whether anyone is home during the day, where they do their banking, what kind/color/year car they have, where their kids go to school. That should pucker their rectums.

#15 we also need to organize our own sharp programmers--OK, hackers, as the Radical Left seems to have targeted certain websites (such as Lucianne)so that they load oddly and crash in platforms such as Chrome. And I´ve long since figured out that much of the Romney campaign´s programs, particularly Project Orca, had programmers (Indian?)sabotaging everything they used. Time to breed our own who can´t be bought or co-opted! How about readers´ homeschooled kids for starters?

When the names of the gun owners or gun permit owners were posted....... did they also post the names, addresses, phone numbers of ALL the celebrities including directors, producers, etc etc...news anchors, owners of MSNBC, CBS, ABC....etc....YOU KNOW they ALL have personal guards and protection WITH GUNS.----IF Joe Citizen can have his privacy invaded, we need to direct the same toward ALL the liberal loud mouths who want to take away our guns....but retain their own guards and guns.----HYPOCRITES ALL!----Does anyone seriously think Gregory, et al doesn´t have some level of guard or protection for himself and his family.
This has happening for years in fly over country. My name has been published at least twice. How come everyone gets upset when it happens in New York but have been completely silent on this breach of privacy when it occurs outside of the major news centers?
The paper broke the law, as only "law enforcement" agencies may access the freedom of info info. Hope the gun owners band together and sue the paper out of existence.
Section 1. Subdivision 5 of section 400.00 of the penal law
A. 9388 2
1 (II) A REQUEST FOR THE ENTIRE LIST OF LICENSEES, OR FOR ALL LICENSEES IN A GEOGRAPHIC AREA, SHALL BE DENIED, EXCEPT TO ANY LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY OR ANY ENTITY ACTING ON BEHALF OF OR PROVIDING SERVICES TO ANY LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY.
#4, They did that when they posted the permit holders locations. Anyone who wants to can extrapolate further. And #38, its the squeaky wheel that gets heard. Next time it happens, let us know here. We will hear you, believe me.
if i lived up there, and didnt get my address published, i would get with other people in the area whose addresses werent published, to organize a class action suit against gannett for putting the unpublished addresses at higher risk of crime.
gannett´s attempt to harm permit owners will actually harm everyone else, and everyone else should make them pay for it.
#38, it was probably an idea whose time has come. Also, living in a progressive stronghold might have something to do with it. Those people who own guns might get on someone´s progressive black list regarding job and social contacts, etc.
I´d be willing to bet there is no newspaper employee with a gun permit. Civil union certificates, yes, but gun permits? These wienies wouldn´t know how to load a revolver. A semiautomatic´s from another universe.
Summary: left wing journalists use their First Amendment rights to try and "shame" and intimidate licensed gun owners excercising their Second Amendment rights; Blogger uses First Amendment rights to publicly retaliate against left wing journalists on behalf of excercisers of the Second Amendment. Okay.
It will be interesting to see if any of these journolisters now experience a break-in. Any crook with a brain will know that they are all left wingers who would probably never own an evil gun. If it does happen, look for the Journal News employees to make a dreaming dash to the court house waving their lawsuits. It´s the leftist way - privacy for me but not for thee.
Robert Cox, April 2013: Opens mail delivered to his home. "Honey? we´re being audited!" Robert Cox, January 2014: Opens mail delivered to his home. "Honey? we´re being audited!"

This is too funny. Someone should tell Gannett that the days of leftwing dominance of the media narrative are over. Your stupid "news" rag started this whole debacle and I salute Mr Cox for what he did. Like I always say if what´s good for the goose is good for the trukey.
The "public discussion" pretext of Janet Hasson basis for seeking and publishing the information is so disingenuous that it would almost be laughable.
Imagine if someone were to claim they believe that there´s an epidemic of "Latchkey Kids," as too many children are being left alone at home, unsupervised, and prone to get themselves and others into trouble, and to illustrate the point, or to enable there to be a "discussion," published the addresses of LoHud employees who had "Latchkey" children?
The true motivation for such a tactic would be entirely clear to all but those without any bit of common sense.
Ms. Hasson´s stunt wasn´t done for the sake of discussion, but for the sake of intimidation. To make those who would consider jumping through the seemingly endless and costly hoops and obstacles that many NY counties require those who seek to practice their Second Amendment protected rights in their homes with a pistol, think twice before doing so.
Well regarding Feinstein´s bill, this is how it works, imho: Feinstein creates a bill that is highly restrictive so that is it certain not to pass...so that the democrats can then say they have done their duty to their base... and will then blame the defeat on the republicans. Double hitter.
NOTHING in today´s world is as it seems, imho. Nothing.
While we are at it we should publish any crimes of the newspaper journalists such as spousal assault, drunk driving, shoplifting, etc. That knowledge would be useful when evaluating op/eds or other articles written by the paper´s journalists.
Perfect in every way. This is one of the best entries I have ever seen posted here. I hope more of the same is soon to come. Fight back, folks. The libs don´t know what it means to have people throw it back at them. Good show!!!
Read through the list of newspaper employees he has listed. It´s not just the publisher, the author of the article, etc. It´s the society page writer, the photographer for local news, etc. ALL SORTS of lower newspaper employees. I´m guessing they´re pretty thrilled with their bosses right now.
This is CLASSIC. Pure classic. Reminds me of the time Michael Moore trained a video camera on Miss Lucianne´s apt. window in NYC, and she put up a big sign advertising something in the window. I´m still laughing about that one.
All of the newspaper staff data was posted by bloggers the same day and easily googled. The writer was noted to be a permit holder and owner of a specific heavy caliber revolver.
Hinderacker at Powerline has offered that he believes the Feinstein bill (Will she be giving up HER gun?) could not pass "the Senate much less the House". I´ve still called six legislators so far - you?
Okay, as a gun owner myself, my first thought on the original article was now the crooks know what houses to hit to steal guns. I understand the argument that the houses not on the list are considered to be soft targets, however I highly doubt those on the list 1) are home 24/7/365 and 2) when they do leave take all of their weapons with them.
I viewed the article as an open invitation by the paper to put more guns in the hands of criminals who can just watch law-abiding citizens leave for work and then break in.
Good payback for a terribly stupid and ill willed act by a typically corrupted small time press doing big time damage to its own neighbors. While we´re at it, let´s publish the names and addresses of all TV Mafia Media traitors to the truth, who are doing incalcuable damage daily protecting all the crooks in Washington DC. All the country houses, the NY penthouses, publically news printed will bring a constant flow of NY visiting citizens protesting with signs. Come to NY, see the sights, and spend a few hours carrying protest signs in front of Diane Sawyers luxurious quarters. Protest the "news liar" class. There´s a class of low life people that need some serious scolding
Well done. If only we could publish the names, addresses, and personal phone numbers of state, local, and national elected politicians who avoid paying income tax, take graft, and routinely lie to the public. Na. File would be too large.
Awwww shucks the communist newspapers of the state controlled media won´t like this only they are allowed to do things against its citizens!! The citizens are NOT allowed to print their names and addresses only the state controlled media are allowed to print peoples names who are protecting their families and businesses by having a gun in their house or business!! The state controlled media is trying to shame them into giving up their guns by saying "We are very,very,sorry for having a gun". Why is it that when a gun is involved only the crooked politicians want their children protected by having a gun carrying cop in the school but the public school children are not allowed to have an armed guard on duty!! stick it to these communist state controlled media!! Dot T. Muchum!
For the past fifteen years, Gannett has been quietly buying small town newspapers all along the eastern seaboard. What were once conservative newspapers become flaming liberal rags once Gannett takes over.
In our house, we refuse subscribing to anything owned by Gannett.
Robert Cox is a true patriot! Hope we hear alot more about Mr. Cox giving the liberal media a taste of their own medicine!
A self-described non-partisan organization promoting affordable health care has received a $1.1million grant to create a database of Obamacare success stories, it was revealed today. The Washington, DC-based non-profit group Families USA was awarded the grant October 4 by The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. On the foundation´s website it states that the money was made available to Families USA ´to publicize the available insurance options under the Affordable Care Act.´ The description of the grant goes on to say that the $1.1million will be used to increase the organization´s capacity ´to expand its well-established story-bank operation to produce´ more stories
So this is how first lady Michelle Obama imagines Americans should spend their Thanksgiving dinner: Talking about Obamacare. That’s her call to supporters, via an email invitation to Democratic Party backers, The New York Post reported. “As you spend time with loved ones this holiday season, be sure to talk with them about what health care reform can mean to them,” she said, in the email that contained 14 talking points that could be raised. Among her touted topics, The Post reported: Talk about the need to sign up for Obamacare. And, ask guests to bring W2 tax forms, or
Ronan Farrow has made it crystal clear that he´s going to fit in perfectly as a new MSNBC host. On Thanksgiving Eve, he tweeted to his 150,000 followers, "Thanksgiving: because genocide is a lot more festive 392 years after the fact": [Tweet] As if that wasn´t disgraceful enough, he followed it up Thursday with this: [Tweet] He´ll fit in perfectly with the rest of the America haters at MSNBC, won´t he?
During a recent stay in Berlin, I visited the old headquarters of the East German Ministry of State Security, better known as the Stasi. The building, in a suitably bleak part of what used to be East Berlin, is now a museum devoted to the communist surveillance state. The upper floors display some of the tools of that surveillance -- miniature cameras, listening devices, files on everything -- that the German Democratic Republic used to control every aspect of its citizens´ lives. But the first floor of the Stasi Museum is not about spying. Instead, it is devoted to the propaganda that East German bureaucrats used to foster socialist consciousness
It´s a slice of life you don´t often hear about. Shortly after a manager at a Pizza Hut franchise in Elkhart, Indiana, announced that he was fired for refusing to open on Thanksgiving Day, the company is offering him his job back. Tony Rohr, 28, had worked for the chain for more than 10 years. When he refused to open on Thanksgiving Day this year and force his employees to work, he says, he was told to write a letter of resignation. Instead, he wrote one explaining why the store should remain closed. "I said, ´Why can´t we be the company
It wasn’t exactly the disastrous rollout of Obamacare, but 10 years ago this week, Washington was consumed with another scandal, dubbed by one CNN newscaster as “Turkey-gate”: Was that a fake turkey President George W. Bush was photographed with during his first surprise visit with troops in Iraq? The photo resulting from the visit was iconic — possibly history’s most famous picture of a cooked turkey. It’s certainly the most misunderstood. Despite being a real turkey, meant as a decoration for the chow line, Mr. Bush’s political opponents seized on it, erroneously claiming it was plastic.
At least four people were injured by gunfire on the South Side late Wednesday and early this morning, according to police. About 1:15 a.m., someone in a black car yelled gang slogans and opened fire at a 27-year-old man in the 100 block of West 63rd Street, police said. The 27-year-old was struck in the forearm and taken in good condition to St. Bernard Hospital, police said. Slightly earlier, about 1 a.m. a 43-year-old man was shot in the ear during a struggle with his girlfriend of East 78th Street and South Creiger Avenue, police said. He was treated and
WASHINGTON, D.C. - House Speaker John Boehner´s legislative recipes for the nation tend not to agree with every voter, but the congressman from West Chester believes his recipes for Thanksgiving dinner will be more of a bipartisan success. After TIME magazine published a Thanksgiving essay by Boehner that reveals he celebrates the holiday by making "what I consider to be the best turkey brine around," Boehner posted his Thanksgiving recipes for brined turkey, stuffing and creamed spinach on his House of Representatives website. He also posted a photo of himself buying the turkey for Thanksgiving in Tipp City, Ohio. According
Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks, but not a time to rest for politicians running for reelection. Less than a year before the midterm elections, Senate candidates in both parties are busy raising money and defining themselves to voters over the Thanksgiving holiday. Dozens of incumbent lawmakers and candidates issued holiday emails on Wednesday, with more to come on Thanksgiving. Though most don´t explicitly ask for contributions, nearly all include a link to donate. The holiday is also a time for candidates to show their softer sides in a bid to cozy up to would-be supporters. Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate
TAMPA — Thanksgiving is an American food holiday, but that hasn’t stopped the owners of Piquant Epicure & Cuisine from throwing a little French flavor onto their holiday takeout menu. In addition to the traditional turkey, Rosana Rivera and Ricardo Castro are offering customers a silky Chardonnay sauce with cream instead of lumpy gravy and a fresh cranberry gastrique in place of the stuff that comes out of a can. A decadent side of potatoes gratin will substitute for boring mashed spuds, and a classic French green bean almondine will replace the traditional goopy holiday casserole. Piquant is among a
On Wednesday, President Barack Obama´s White House politicized Thanksgiving to promote the reauthorization of the SNAP (Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program) or "food stamps" as part of the farm bill at a time when a record number of Americans are receiving assistance. In an email, the White House urged Americans sitting down for Thanksgiving Dinner to remember: "For decades, Congress has authorized SNAP in a bipartisan fashion through the Farm Bill. They don´t have to do it in a way that hurts children, seniors, veterans, and vulnerable families. Learn more, and pass it on." The White House linked to a report
On Saturday, I got a call from my sister Barb. It was the call you tell yourself is never going to come — or you convince yourself it’s so far out there in the future that you can safely keep it out of sight and out of mind. My 86 year-old mother Grace was in the hospital, and it was deadly serious. Remnants of denial caused me to not even think about bringing overnight clothes until I was two-thirds of the way from Cincinnati to Columbus. Mom’s temperature had hit 104 degrees overnight. She was rushed early Saturday morning to
Those who wrote the PPACA legislation were much more brilliant than most conservatives have given them credit for. They have hidden a landmine in the way it all works that will ensure an eventual takeover of the entire health care industry by the government. Let me first clarify my professional interest. I have been a vendor of software and services to both insurance companies and providers, and therefore have a deep understanding of the health care industry and what the ACA will do to it. I do not work for any insurance companies or medical providers, nor do I own stock
Iranian officials say that the White House is misleading the public about the details of an interim nuclear agreement reached over the weekend in Geneva. Iran and Western nations including the United States came to an agreement on the framework for an interim deal late Saturday night in Geneva. The deal has yet to be implemented. The White House released a multi-page fact sheet containing details of the draft agreement shortly after the deal was announced. However, Iranian foreign ministry official on Tuesday rejected the White House’s version of the deal as “invalid” and accused Washington
Cher told her fans on Wednesday that she does not celebrate Thanksgiving. In fact, she appears to deplore the American holiday, calling in the “beginning of a great crime.” Cher said that the American settlers were guilty of taking land from native Americans who had no concept of property ownership and also intentionally infected them with smallpox. “You don’t celebrate the holiday I thought?” a fan asked Cher. “I DON’T,” Cher replied emphatically. She said that, to her, Thanksgiving is a day to see family, eat food together and watch a movie. “Not 2 celebrate the beginning of a GREAT Crime.” When asked
President Obama's weekly remarks: Hi, everybody. On behalf of all the Obamas — Michelle, Malia, Sasha, Bo, and the newest member of our family, Sunny — I want to wish you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving. We’ll be spending today just like many of you — sitting down with family and friends to eat some good food, tell stories, watch a little football and. most importantly, count our blessings. And as Americans, we have so much to be thankful for.
LEE COUNTY - The Lee County Sheriff´s Office has arrested a juvenile in connection with two random attacks reported in Lee County.

Economics: It seems the official position of Pope Francis is that the free market is a wicked enemy that must be restrained. With all due respect, he´s mistaken. The free market has been a heavenly blessing. Two days before our American Thanksgiving, the Argentinian pontiff, in his first apostolic exhortation, called the free market a "new tyranny." "Some people continue to defend trickle-down theories which assume that economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and inclusiveness in the world," he wrote in the Vatican report. Claims of free-market success, he said, have "never been confirmed
President Obama is concerned these days with the "young invincibles," the 20-somethings he needs now to buy into his program, but who probably won´t because they feel (you guessed it) invincible and think they will stay so for quite a long time. But it takes one to know one, as the irony is Obama himself is, or once was, an ultra-invincible, unstoppable and doing what people said couldn´t be done. Could he become world famous on the strength of one speech? Yes, he could. Could he beat Hillary Clinton, a president´s wife and a feminist icon? Yes, he could. Could he
President Barack Obama told a Democratic fundraiser in Beverly Hills Tuesday that he has accomplished "as much, if not more" than any other president."Over the last five years, thanks to the leadership of Nancy (Pelosi) and Harry (Reid) and legislators who are here, we have accomplished as much, if not more, than any time in our history -- saving an economy from a Great Depression; revitalizing an auto industry that is producing better cars and has come roaring back like nobody believed; doubling our exports; drastically reducing our dependence on foreign oil; doubling fuel efficiency standards; doubling our production of
In the wake of the Obamacare fiasco, President Obama’s poll numbers are collapsing in two industrial Midwestern states — the quintessential swing state of Ohio and his home state of Illinois. In Illinois, the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling found Obama’s approval rating falling to just 50–46 positive in a state he carried by 17 points just a year ago. His biggest drops in support came among women voters (only 50 percent positive) and Hispanics (only 51 percent positive). Without his overwhelming support among African-Americans (92 percent), his approval rating would easily be in the low 40s. The liberal website
One day after a new poll showed that only a minority of Americans trust President Barack Obama, the president told an audience that his policies are based on kindness. “Kindness covers all of my political beliefs,” Obama told his audience of wealthy investors, high-tech donors, journalists and fellow Democrats Tuesday, only two months after he slashed at GOP legislators, calling them arsonists, nuclear blackmailers, economic wreckers, hostage-takers, obsessives and irresponsible extremists. “When I think about what I’m fighting for, what gets me up every single day, [kindness] captures it just about as much as anything,” he told his audience at the DreamWorks
Reports of bias incidents at Vassar College that involved hateful messages left on students’ doors were actually elaborate hoaxes — and the perpetrator is none other than the student member of the Bias Incident Response Team, The Daily Caller has learned. This fall semester at the liberal arts college in New York saw a curiously high number of bias incident reports. [snip] The task force had one student member: Genesis Hernandez, who is transgendered and was also a vice president of the Vassar Student Association (VSA), the student government.
Bias: After spending three years promoting ObamaCare lies, the media elite now scramble to get out of the way of a train wreck they helped cause. Their backpedaling would be funny if so many lives weren´t at risk. As the redistributive mechanics of ObamaCare rear their ugly head, the president´s propaganda puppets are suddenly sounding like conservative critics. Take the New York Times. In a fit of candor, it now agrees with what we´ve said all along — "redistribution of wealth lies at the heart of" the Affordable Care Act. The paper reported that "economic justice" was Obama´s real goal in taking over
