Default Map: Where are the gun permits in your neighborhood?

Please move your PC away from the walls before reading this...The urge to punch one will be strong...

A New York newspaper is treating law-abiding citizens like sex offenders and notifying criminals of all of the "safe" houses to hit...I'm surprised they didn't suggest Star of David armbands...

The map is interactive, but I only provided a screenshot because anyone using this map would be just as disgusting as the a-holes who created it...

Map: Where are the gun permits in your neighborhood?



Quote:
The map indicates the addresses of all pistol permit holders in Westchester and Rockland counties. Each dot represents an individual permit holder licensed to own a handgun a pistol or revolver. The data does not include owners of long guns rifles or shotguns which can be purchased without a permit. Being included in this map does not mean the individual at a specific location owns a weapon, just that they are licensed to do so.

Data for all permit categories, unrestricted carry, premises, business, employment, target and hunting, is included, but permit information is not available on an individual basis.

To create the map, The Journal News submitted Freedom of Information requests for the names and addresses of all pistol permit holders in Westchester, Rockland and Putnam. By state law, the information is public record.

Putnam is still putting together its records and could not immediately provide any data. The map will be updated when that data is released.

Wow. This would be useless in Georgia because you don't need a license to carry a handgun in your car, on your property, or at your business. Even if it doesn't show, I may still be packing a handgun, much less an AR or shotgun.

Map: Where are the gun permits in your neighborhood?

This is exactly why sensible regulation of licensing permits is necessary. Only certain medical or judicial professionals and designated trained , bonded techs should have access to info on who is mentally disturbed or has a felony history. Then the gun would not be sold to them or their license will be recalled and they must sell or turn in by set date. No one needs this kind of information on this map and it is as you point out quite dangerous to the community. Does much more harm than good.

What on earth is their rationale for doing this?

It's dangerous to the community because it shows the gun free houses to hit, and your suggestion to make it safer is to make most houses gun free. This makes no sense.

I hope they file a class action suit and own that rag. This is clearly putting these legal owners at risk. How about a list of all the politicians that carry?

Yep. The imbeciles just told the criminal element which houses to avoid for their "shopping". The dumb bastards, the ones whose names were not published, had better do something about the stupidity of the newspaper.

One more reason to NOT have lists for anyone to access. No list, no names, no problem.

This was posted today, but since I'm sure it didn't happen today, this will be 2012's Schadenfreude of the Year...

In an effort to treat gun owners as criminals like sex offenders, the Journal News printed the addresses of the gun owners in their area...

Backlash has been so great that they decided they need guns for protection!!!!...

The Journal News is Armed and Dangerous

Quote:
Guns are good for the goose but NOT for the gander.

A Clarkstown police report issued on December 28, 2012, confirmed that The Journal News has hired armed security guards from New City-based RGA Investigations and that they are manning the newspaper’s Rockland County headquarters at 1 Crosfield Ave., West Nyack, through at least tomorrow, Wednesday, January 2, 2013.

According to police reports on public record, Journal News Rockland Editor Caryn A. McBride was alarmed by the volume of “negative correspondence,” namely an avalanche of phone calls and emails to the Journal News office, following the newspaper’s publishing of a map of all pistol permit holders in Rockland and Westchester.

Due to apparent safety concerns, the newspaper then decided to hire RGA Investigations to provide armed personnel to man the location.


Private investigator Richard Ayoob is the administrator of RGA. He told the Clarkstown Police on Friday, December 28 that there had been no problems on site at the Journal News headquarters despite the massive influx of phone calls and emails.

McBride had filed at least two reports with the Clarkstown Police Department due to perceived threats. However, the police did not find the communications in question actually threatening. Incident-Report 2012-00033099 describes McBride telling police she was worried because an email writer wondered “what McBride would get in her mail now.”

Police said the email “did not constitute an offense” and did not contain an actual threat.

The Journal News caused an international stir when they released an interactive map of pistol permit holders names and addresses in Rockland and Westchester counties last Sunday, December 23. The editors have said they believe knowing where guns are is in the public’s interest. The newspaper has also taken a strident editorial position in favor of strict gun control.
Threats to elitist snobs demand gun protection...

The puny citizen who also feels the need for protection?...Well they can just go f**k themselves...

As a commenter points out on the article's link...

Quote:
The Journal News (h)as exercised the rights they clearly want to deny everyone else. Their hiring protection for themselves, validated the pure rationale of every single one of those pistol permit holders they demonized by their propaganda piece. Pure Abbott and Costello comedy.

I was watching Mike Huckabee on the news the other night when he said if a person had the time and money they should start investigating everything the reporters, editors and publishers ever did in their lives, like divorce, affairs school records and then publish them on-line for all the world to see. Invade their privacy like they did to the folks who are legal gun owners. You would hear the howls of indignation from the media elites and reporters,but then so what.
