Ex-Burglars Say Newspaper’s
Gun Map Would’ve Made
the Job Easier, Safer

Fox News, by Jana Winter

Original Article

Posted By:loosbolt, 1/5/2013 1:58:37 AM

Reformed crooks say the New York newspaper that published a map of names and addresses of gun owners did a great service – to their old cronies in the burglary trade. The information published online by the Journal-News, a daily paper serving the New York suburbs of Westchester, Rockland and Putnam counties, could be highly useful to thieves in two ways, former burglars told FoxNews.com. Crooks looking to avoid getting shot now know which targets are soft and those who need weapons know where they can steal them. “That was the most asinine article I’ve ever seen,” said Walter T. Shaw,

Me too. Anyone that is robbed in the area should sue the paper.

What happened to the woman that they published her name and address in order to get even when this first appeared in the paper ?

Bankruptcy and lawsuits are the only limits arrogant Leftist journal-twits understand. With hellbent Leftists likes these, it´s their very Godlessness that allows them to think they have the right to do as they please. Time for a really good smack-down for these jerks, either legally or financially. For starters, who are their advertisers? Time to get in touch with these advertisers, me thinks.

Here you have people trying to do the right thing and register their guns,only to be sabotaged by some maniacal left wing anti-gun zealot with too much time and money on her hands.Everybody in these counties are at some level of elevated risk now.

The left wants to shame,embarrass or bully people into complying with their upside down rules of the road.

The only thing that could make this hole in the wall paper any worse is if they´re taxpayer financed.

I live in Connecticut. A legislator (lefty, naturally) has called for the state to make available to the public a registry of all permit holders in the state.

I don´t think it´s going anywhere, but this is Connecticut, so. . . .

If anything, posting in public those houses that have guns, makes them safer from break in.
If I did not have a gun permit I would be worried that my name was not published.
The publishing will have exactly the opposite effect the anti gun folks wanted.

The "burglars" might think twice -- however -- not all citizens were stupid enough to register their firearms....

Two can play that game. Let´s go ahead and publish the names, phone numbers, email addresses, and residence addresses of the news media people (newspaper, radio, television, and internet) and top it off with publishing the same information for elected public officials (Past and Present), law enforcement, union bosses...where do we stop?

NY is not like most of the US when it comes to handguns or firearms in general.

The permitees identified on the map are people who have a pistol permit--it is not a list of people with purchase documents, since you can´t get a pistol purchase document without being licensed to possess a handgun in the first place.

While it´s true you don´t have to purchase a handgun once you obtain a purchase document, the fact is you have to buy the document from the issuing authority, so one usually pays for and leaves the pistol, goes to the PD to get the doc and then returns and picks up the pistol.

They will not release the pistol to you without it, as the document is then altered by the gun shop to be specific to the serial number of the handgun, and it serves as your license to possess the handgun until you return to the licensing agency with it and the handgun to be formally added to your permit.

If you possess a handgun in NY that is not on your permit, you´re guilty of a crime, (just like David Gregory).

Long guns don´t need a permit.

I just love NY, the liberal sinkhole I live in.

I am always amused at how fast urban liberals lose their bias towards gun control after they move to their rural paradise where it can take the cops over an hour to respond to a 911 call. Unfortunately most never consider the same response time too often applies to the inner cities in the municipalities they came from.

IMO,the SCOTUS decision on Lawrence vs. the State of Texas needs to be overturned immediately: if the perps at the Journal aren´t arrested and charged, there IS no right to privacy to protect. The cop was right all along and the gay guy was guilty. In fact, all laws pertaining in any way whatever, to personal privacy, must be scuttled immediately.


This folks, is called a slippery slope.

Once the gun owners´ names and addresses are published, the left´s logic will be that since gun thieves may now target those homes, the guns should be confiscated to keep them out of the hands of criminals.

Way back years ago my Dad gave me a gun - a revolver and I lived in NY and asked the sheriff what I should do to get a license, he took my info and he walked it through the process and the judge who was also a Pubbie signed it and then we went out and had coffee. Actually, back then, no one cared whether you had a gun or not. It is still none of their business - newspaper should be treated to a blitz of toy rifle and pistol gifts.

Did you folks hear Mark Levin yesterday? He discussed the bill of rights in the constitution saying it was there to protect the citizens from a tyrannical government and pointing out that this applies to the second amendment. The right to bear arms was put there as a last resort so that citizens can protect themselves from a tyrannical government. We are getting there with all branches of government which should check each others power being corrupted by the same statists. This is the same reason that communist governments always try to confiscate guns - they want the individual to be defenceless! Many jurisdictions don´t even let an old person have pepper spray for self defence!

I just read an article on Fox about how prison inmates, now privy to addresses of prison guards, are intimidating and threatening those guards. There are about 8,000 active and retired NYPD officers living in Rockford County.

In their misguided attempt to make a point (an uninformed and hysterical point, I might add), the newspaper has now put lives at risk. Doin´ good ain´t got no end.

Yep, 22 is right. *Long guns don´t need a permit*. Just need a nice little light shotgun which shoots both shot and shell and holds three loads of either. Go out of NY to some sane State and get one for a little over hundred and fifty bucks. Get some ammo while there.
And, by the way, you don´t have to go through months of elaborate target practice to become a seasoned shooter. You don´t need to place your little shotgun up against your shoulder and squint at the target which is coming at you, hoping you´ll hit your target. No, indeed. Just hold your little shotgun tight against your side, on your hip, like Clint Eastwood would do. Then blast away. No target practice necessary because you will hit anything in front of you. Go for it New Yorkers. New York will rise again.

This morning I met up with some like-minded friends for breakfast at IHOP then we walked across the street to the month gun show. The line was close to 500 and they hadn´t even opened the doors yet.

Of course, this is in Texas. But still. So we decided to go to a local gun store instead.

Last week while in a large national chain Sporting Goods store I walked over to the gun section. There was only one guy behind the counter but he had four people filling out purchase forms. No way I was going to take a look at one of the pistols on display for quite a while so I just left.

My point? They can do whatever they want to try and ´control´ guns. What they need to understand is that we, as Americans, will not submit. They can come with whatever force they want with whatever ´law´ our inept, corrupt Congress passed. But we will not submit.

When the second amendment was passed, a very common long gun in the hands of the citizenry was the Kentucky (or Pennsylvania) Long Rifle. It was vastly superior to the Brown Bess muskets used by the British Army at the time. Based on that fact, I see no reason for the citizenry of today to own an AR-15.

this was the very first thing I thought when I saw that that newspaper had published the list. Of course a crook is going to check the list! the paper thinks the gun owners are the danger. it never occurs to them that it´s the BAD guys with guns who are the problem. so they ended up helping the bad guys with guns. they think the problem is just guns.

Don´t wait to be robbed,every person whose name and address was published by the paper should file suit for intentional infliction of emotional distress. We all know the real reason the paper published that information was to try and embarrass people. Intentional infliction of emotional distress is an intentional tort and therefore the injured party can recovery punitive damages.

Springfield Gardens, NY 11413

and his phone number is (718) 527-0832.

#32, Drudge is linking to that Fox article. As you say, there are thousands of NYPD active and retired in Rockland, and many more in Westchester, where the newspaper also published gun owners. In Putnam, where the County Clerk is refusing to release the information, there are also many active and retired law enforcement. They can´t be happy about this, since criminals with a bent for revenge now have their addresses.

In Nassau County (another suburb of NYC), a few years back, the county placed real estate records on line, searchable by name, showing addresses, home photos, and floor plans. Police officers and public personalities were enraged, and the county was forced to change the way records are listed.

I will be surprised if the same thing doesn´t happen here.

Until idiots have to stand responsibility for their actions, this kind of irresponsible journalism will continue. If I had the money, I would take out full page ads saying to the public at large, "Anyone who is harmed in anyway by the actions of the so-called "Journalists" should call me- I will retain an attorney for them and help in every way to bring the law suits against the media and media persons directly responsible." Then watch the chill go up the yellow spines of these liberal idiots who published this list.

The problem is with the law and specifically with the term ´´public access´´ vis a vis vast technological changes. The laws were written years ago when public access meant that on a onesy-twosy basis, you have access to the public information. Internet, Facebook, Google Maps et al. have changed the meaning of public access, as the usage of these technologies changes the intent and nature of those old laws. For now, judges need to protect the public, and enforce the onesy-twosy access, but forbid the access to entire data bases. Then we must proceed legislatively to update the laws to codify new, safe and sane access to these data.

A sign from above? Lightning
strikes Vatican hours after
Pope´s shock resignation
Mirror [UK], by Paul Cockerton    Original Article
Posted By: loosbolt- 2/12/2013 12:31:55 AM     Post Reply
This was the moment lightning struck the Vatican today - hours after Pope Benedict XVI´s bolt-from-the-blue resignation. The lightning touched the dome of St. Peter´s Basilica, one of the holiest Catholic churches, after the Pope´s shock admission he lacks strength to do the job. The Vatican stressed that no specific medical condition prompted Benedict´s decision to quit - the first pontiff to do so in 600 years. The move surprised even his closest aides, even though Benedict, 85, had made clear in the past he would step down if he became too old or infirm.

Al Jazeera completes
deal to buy Current TV
Los Angeles Times, by Joe Flint    Original Article

Current TV, the small cable news channel that was co-founded by former vice president Al Gore, has been sold to Al Jazeera, the Qatar-based media company. The acquisition gives Al Jazeera, which is funded by the Qatar government, the opportunity to establish a footprint in the United States, where it already has an English-language version of its Qatar service -- called Al Jazeera English -- but only limited reach. Just buying Current does not guarantee instant distribution, however. Time Warner Cable, which offered Current in roughly 10 million of its homes, is dropping the channel.

Congressional Republicans, led by House Oversight Committee chair Darrell Issa,are planning another IRS coal-raking exercise for Wednesday, hauling the tax agency´s commissioner in for a hearing about the nearly year-old tea party targeting scandal. [Snip] An aide to one Republican committee member said Monday that the White House and the Treasury Department were already dangerously close to causing a constitutional crisis. ´They´ve blown off the subpoenas,´ the aide said, referring to legal demands the committee issued to the IRS on August 2 and February 14. ´If the DOJ keeps dragging its heels too, and can just get away with it,

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

London - A remarkable piece of high-tech data detective work has provided what looks to be the missing clue to the tragic fate of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, an expert said Monday. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak earlier on Monday said that information provided by British satellite company Inmarsat and the British government´s Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) confirmed that MH370 had flown to a remote part of the Indian Ocean where the flight ended. (Snip) Inmarsat had come up with a theory to apply to the data it had collected from MH370 during the flight, and had then tested the results on aircraft in

Former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news this week publicizing a new book about women’s rights. But, as is often the case with Carter, he drew more interest for comments he made about Israel and its supporters. When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor. I think the problem was that– that in dealing

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

First Lady Michelle Obama talked about America as she visited a school today in China. She talked about the American dream: And my story isn’t unusual in America. Some of our most famous athletes, like LeBron James, and artists, like the singer Janelle Monae, came from struggling families like mine, as do many business leaders -- like Howard Schultz. He’s the head of a company called Starbucks, which many of you may have heard of. When Mr. Schultz was a boy his father lost his job, leaving their family destitute. But Mr. Schultz worked hard. He got a scholarship to a

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

WASHINGTON — Spring break was never this dull. First Lady Michelle Obama’s kids finally hit the wall on their whirlwind visit to China, showing signs they’ve nearly reached their limit tagging along with mom as she visits site after site on what’s billed as a “person-to-person” tour. Accompanied by Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, the first lady on Monday toured Xi’an, an ancient city in the ancestral province of Chinese President Xi Jinping. They inspected the city’s 600-year-old wall, a day after touring the Great Wall near Beijing. Photos show Sasha looking like she’d rather be back home with her pals than hitting the

Three Secret Service agents responsible for protecting President Obama in Amsterdam this week were sent home and put on administrative leave Sunday after going out for a night of drinking, according to three people familiar with the incident. One of them was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said. The hotel staff alerted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands after finding the unconscious agent Sunday morning, a day before Obama arrived in the country, according to two of the people. The embassy then alerted Secret Service managers on the presidential trip, which included Secret Service

Most Supreme Court watchers are fixated these days on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby—the important challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate scheduled for argument Tuesday. And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act. While the country remains divided over whether he acted like a traitor or a statesman, all would have to agree

It’s not an early April Fool’s joke -- Business Insider has hired disgraced former NYC Congressman and mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner to write a weekly political column, starting Friday. Hunter Walker, Business Insider’s politics editor, published the announcement on Monday, after teasing the news on Twitter by announcing that “something wonderful is about to happen.” The folks at Business Insider are clearly aware of the built-in entertainment value of hiring the scandalized politician, who is best known for sending an explicit photo of himself to an online mistress on Twitter -- and initially denying the photo was his. (The trouble didn’t

During oral arguments in the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday which focused on whether the contraceptive mandate in the Affordable Care Act violates the free exercise of religion, Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan suggested employers who have moral objections to birth control should not provide health care coverage for their employees. “But isn´t there another choice nobody talks about, which is paying the tax, which is a lot less than a penalty and a lot less than -- than the cost of health insurance at all?” Sotomayor said during the presentation by attorney Paul Clement, who represents Hobby Lobby Stores
