On Sunday, December 23, liberal New York newspaper The Journal News published the names and addresses of legal pistol permit holders in two counties online and in print.

Now this…
Former burglars say the gun maps posted at The Journal News would have made their job easier and safer.
FOX News reported:

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, 65, a former burglar and jewel thief who the FBI blames for more than 3,000 break-ins that netted some $70 million in the 1960s and 1970s. “Having a list of who has a gun is like gold – why rob that house when you can hit the one next door, where there are no guns? “What they did was insanity,” added Shaw, author of “License to Steal,” a book about his criminal career.

  1. DUH

  2. What more can you say about the media. Not content with just being cheerleaders for dems and statism, now they will purposefully try to endanger those who they don’t like.

  3. Embarrassing good folks to give up their firearms won’t work. We did, however, see another facet of the communist lamestreammedia complex trying to subvert American freedom and rights.

  4. Prediction: politicians and the media will be held accountable if/when this country collapses.

  5. I hope all the responsible gun owners have safely secured their guns. So many people are unintentionally shot.

  6. what some neighbor did to get some court attention and to stop this crack-pot from
    ruining the neighborhood with trays of urine and feces intheyard and no utilities on and the house full of dog poop and rats -was to file small calims against him for the max amot forthe county. I don’t know if NY has those “people’s courts but when there are hundreds of cases for Say $ 5,000 each it makes the deft take notice. and the courts.It wouldbe say the amt for an alam system to protect yr premises, that is what they did. It wasn’t vague stuff like mental distress or what ev. I am relaying what they did.. I don’t think they won but they might have.And the problem eventually stopped.

  7. Asinine is right! My new word for the day!!!!

  8. Every household that is broken into should sue the paper.

    Make. Them. Pay.

  9. You’re Kidding? Durrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

  10. The Journal news personal needs to have their addresses posted for all to see. See how they like it.

    Next according to Sharpton the Journal News will be posting residences who have knives,

  11. McCain is now working with Leftist anti-gun Senator Carl Levin on a series of rules changes to make gun control a lot easier to pass….http://www.gunowners.org/a01042013.htm

  12. I am not hearing this argument made enough …The Newspaper does NOT have a right to know which homes do NOT own guns…By claiming a constitutional right to access data on gun registry lists,,,…the paper is also gaining data on homes that do NOT have guns…Publishing this data puts homes without guns in greater danger of bloody home invasions like the one suffered by Dr. Petit in CT…which is why single mothers like Ms Lanza felt the need to stock up on guns in the first place.

  13. i want to be there when the economy collapses and the public/media officials are hung in the public square

  14. Does Missouri have a law that prevents a “newspaper” from getting all the names of registered gun owners and printing their addresses? Does anyone know? If we do not, then the Missouri legislature SHOULD WASTE NO TIME IN creating a new law that does just that. As much as the St. Louis Compost Dispatch hates the Second Amendment, I wouldn’t be surprised if they pulled the same stunt just to get attention.

  15. Former burglars say the gun maps posted at The Journal News would have made their job easier and safer.

    Didn’t need burglars, former or current, to tell us this. Anyone with a functioning brain could have figured it out at the outset.

    McCain is now working with Leftist anti-gun Senator Carl Levin on a series of rules changes to make gun control a lot easier to pass…

    Looked at the link briefly, and what stuck out was this:

    McCain may be working to stab us in the back

    What do they mean, “may”? Stabbing constituents and his fellow party members in the back is exactly how McCain operates.

  16. Those in law inforcement are also targeted and it has made it very difficult for those whose job it is to guard the scum in prisons. Tar and feathers seem too tame as punishment for those who think this information should be published.


  17. @Truth Teller
    I think Politicians will run to South America countries to weather the destruction of America where future chaos happen with street riots possible see the Home Front game opening.
