House IDed on Journal News Gun Map Is Burglarized – Vandals Go Straight For Gun Safe

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…
A home of legal pistol permit holder identified by the Journal News was burglarized Saturday. The vandals went straight for the gun safe.
Newsday reported, the The Blaze:

A White Plains residence pinpointed on a controversial handgun permit database was burglarized Saturday, and the burglars’ target was the homeowner’s gun safe.

At least two burglars broke into a home on Davis Avenue at 9:30 p.m. Saturday but were unsuccessful in an attempt to open the safe, which contained legally owned weapons, according to a law enforcement source. One suspect was taken into custody, the source said.

The gun owner was not home when the burglary occurred, the source said. The victim, who is in his 70s, told Newsday on Sunday that he did not want to comment while the police investigation continues.

“The police are doing a full investigation,” the man saidthrough a partially opened front door.

There was broken glass in the backyard Sunday and a ladder leading up to a second-story window. Neighbors on the street of modest, Colonial homes said they had heard about the burglary.

The homeowner’s name and address were included recently on the controversial interactive map of gun permit holders in Westchester and Rockland counties published on The Journal News’ website.

    Journal News should be gone after aggressively as being responsible for inciting this crime. They are willful accomplices.

    I smell a class action lawsuit in the making. They should go after Gannett, the parent company since they will have REALLY deep pockets. I love the smell of lefties going bankrupt in the morning. Smells like….freedom.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    Sue them out of business. When that’s done, sue the former editor into penury.

    Sue the progressive excrement out of them! Get a vicious, bloodthirsty lawyer without any sense of morality, but with a lust for cash that would shame Al Gore himself.I think John Edwards is off the table at the moment, but some scumbag like that.

  • Look-Out

    Yep. Listening to a repeat of Hannity’s show last week and his guests just now said again what I’d remembered re the Journal News’ publishing that info:

    should “an incident occur, they’re responsible and will be liable.”

    I hope the lawsuit goes well for the victims.

  • donh

    This is EXACTLY why the names were released in the first place. Good luck with a law suit. The paper corporate office is located down the street from the CIA headquarters in Langley VA…The top people at the paper are likely CIA and were just following Obama’s orders…

    So you want to be one of STALIN’s minions out to destroy America ?

    DO SOME RESEARCH into how many most loyal obedient communist IDIOTS were assassinated by their lord and savior STALIN………..Lets see if any of these paper executives die in a mysterious car accident TO GUARANTEE THEIR LIPS NEVER WHISPER LEAKS of what they have been asked to do.

    or maybe an editor will be found hanging with a rope around the neck like that Tech guy Reddit founder Aaron Shwartz…>

  • We had better be ready to destroy them because that is what they plan for us.
    Just saying.

  • jb books

    This was bound to happen, and is only the beginning, there a lot of pins on that map. May Gannett and all those involved fall hard.

  • Albert Frankln

    A good Insurance company would sue Gannett for damages.

    Sue them out of business and send the editors to jail for endangering the lives of innocent people.

  • Liberal

    But wasn’t the homeowner armed with a gun?

    I thought that an armed homeowner was a deterrent to crime!

    Maybe the homeowner had one of those signs that says “Protected by Smith & Wesson”- HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

  • Sasja

    Idiot #15. The homeowner wasn’t there you twit. His guns are locked up in a safe which the burglars could not open.

    Do all liberals have a problem with reading comprehension? Must be hard going through life stupid.

  • UpChuck.Liberals

    #15 Does it take much effort to be as stupid as you are? I’m guessing you’re just naturally dumb so it might have been an excuse your mommy used to explain you peeing on the floor all the time. My question is, now that you’re a big boy why haven’t you learned to use a toilet?

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    Do all liberals have a problem with reading comprehension?

    A lot of them seem to be just plain stupid.

  • Mad Hatter


    If you try thinking, you wouldn’t wind up making yourself look like an ass in front of everyone with your arrogant, “I think I’m so smart” comment.

    Sasja, thanks for pointing out the Alinsky child’s lack of common sense.

  • Obamao

    AND the unknown is how many homes were burgled because they were NOT on the list?

    We may never know. But someone could play round with the numbers, stats, and probability and see if the relative percentage of listed homes went up or down after publication…

    Sue all parties for every dime they’ll ever make!!!!

    I want everyone robbed, raped or killed in their homes to sue; By showing those who have guns, by definition… they’re showing those that don’t.

    #15 Liberal… so crime is funny? criminals stealing guns is funny? A good thing? wow.

    Is the newspaper an accomplice before the fact? providing information to facilitate a crime? either gun theft or the robbery of an unarmed home..

  • Hamburger_Hurter

    Hope this paper gets sued out of existence.

  • dork lungfish

    Here’s a plan: sue them so thoroughly that Gannet has to declare bankruptcy, then pick up all their assets for fire-sale prices, and turn their publications and websites into conservative and libertarian mouthpieces.
