It Begins… New York Inmates Use The Journal News Gun Maps to Threaten Guards

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…
Inmates are using the gun permit maps to threaten local prison guards.
Reuters reported:

New York-area politicians denounced on Friday a local newspaper that has revealed the names and addresses of thousands of holders of gun permits, and they asked state legislators to make such information confidential.

The decision by the Journal News, which serves the suburbs just north of New York City in Westchester and Rockland counties, to publish the identities was “deplorable” and “reckless,” Rockland County legislator Frank Sparaco told a news conference, adding that it “has posed a serious threat to the residents of Rockland.”

Inmates in local prisons have approached guards to say they know their home addresses, Rockland County Sheriff Lou Falco told the news conference.

    The union should sue the paper for endangering its employees. Think that will happen?

    If I were a guard in one of those prisons, my response to an inmate who would tell me such a thing would be, “I guarantee that, whether it’s you or someone you send, anyone that tries to come after me or anyone else at my home will leave in the coroner’s van.”

    The Newspaper is acting on orders from Bloomberg and or Obama.

    The fact the Newspaper headquarters is based in the same town as CIA command center, Langley VA is worth being suspicious the newspaper is staffed with government intelligence agents posing as ” journalists ” taking orders from Obama. …All of these people get to live in gated communities with tax payer funded armed security teams…but they don’t want the common little people to have the same rights they enjoy. The self defense right to protect yourself from criminal thugs.

    This is good news, actually. This little rag newspaper is getting hammered but good over this.

    If anybody tried to breal into a guard’s home because of this, the likelihood of them leaving in alive is somewhere between zero and none.

    The thing is, given where this is happening, it’s of no consequence because if they break into homes of the unarmed, the unarmed will learn a lesson. If they break into the homes of armed people, the criminals will be learn a lesson. Further, anybody smart enough to own firearms yet live in and pay taxes to leftyville NY deserves whatever they get as well.

    This is backfiring big time on the paper. So much win.

  • Lim Lynn

    What goes around comes around every action have consequences I hope no New York Prison inmates will get out of prison like in prison break show and go to gun owners home and arm themselves.

    I read through every single word of the New York Code that applies to gun registrations, permits and Freedom of Information. The law is quite specific that no agency needs to release information that is otherwise public information if it would endanger the health or security of the individuals named.

    Those two counties who released all the names of permit holders were WAY out of line and might in fact have needed the specific permission of a good many legal gun permit holders.

  • donh

    Its not about making the Newspaper pay…The real challenge is connecting the fascist newspaper executives to a communication from Bloomberg , Obama or one of their top thug mob enforcers…….

    This never would have happened without some well organized order from a powerful politician. ..and the paper does not fear public backlash because they have the US government backing their actions at the highest level…

    That this was even done shows just how hard a cram down is coming to take away our gun rights in the coming year. …

    What a strange movie director not blaming the cause that’s violence in movie. While mental health and gun control are Socialist Commie way to deal with people.
    Colonel J R Rees Prsident National Council for Mental Hygiene, “We must aim to make it [Psychiatry] permeate every eductation activity in our national life. Public life, politics and industry should all of them be within our sphere of influence. We have made a useful attack upon a number of professions. The two easiest of them naturally are the teaching and the Church. The most difficult are law and medicine.”
    G Brock Chisholm said,”The Reinterpretation and eventually eradication of the concept of right and wrong are the objectives of all psychotherapy. To achieve World Government it is necessary to remove from the minds of men, their individualism loyal to family tradition national patriotism and religious dogmas.” Co Founder World Federation Mental Health
    45 Socialist Communist Current Goals subvert America citizens from inside America.

  • what a bunch of ignorant newspaper invading MORONS who deliberately give out names of Gun Owners. This is basically criminal mischief and really should put people on notice and especially criminals that coming to any of these homes uninvited can and will mean immediate harm to the intruder(s). The newspaper morons who printed the names and addresses should be sued for $100,000.00 for every name that was submitted. Seriously folks, when will this kind of Crap stop and why is it that news paper columnists get the privilege of endangering guards lives. this is just awful & why cant something be done about people who do this kind of thing without any kind of remorse or retaliation? in some countries this kind of deliberate intentional behavior from reporters would be a prison sentence.. shame on THE JOURNAL NEWS. i WILL NEVER BUY ONE OF YOUR SORRY NEWSPAPERS…EVER!!.. WITH FRIENDS LIKE THESE RATS, WHO NEEDS ENEMIES..

  • Conservative Ken

    It’s ironic that this paper will hire armed security to protect themselves from the storm they created. That armed security will be made up of individuals whose names they themselves published.

  • AuntieMadder

    They want to put legal, permitted gun owners in the position of having to kill liberal douche bags. They want their revolution…and they’re inciting violence to get it started.

    Is this a lesson in why gun registration isn’t such a great idea? This is going to be a very serious debate and it’s going to be interesting to see who from the stuck on stupid party is going to vote with the dems for strict gun control.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    Is this a lesson in why gun registration isn’t such a great idea?

    Certainly. But you can bet that the people who have the most to learn about the subject picked up nothing from this. They’ll see what they want to see and little else.

    “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!”

    [“I would not be surprised to find a copy of al-Qaida’s Inspire magazine
    in any prison,” said Patrick Dunleavy, who retired after 25 years working
    in the New York State prison system as its deputy inspector. Dunleavy,
    author of the forthcoming book, The Fertile Soil of Jihad: Terrorism’s
    Prison Connection, also said that literature has been sent directly from
    Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to New York State prisons.]

    [They may be living right next door…

    Scattered across the United States, unknown to all but a handful of citizens, are 35 Islamic terrorist training compounds known as “Muslims of America.” Under the leadership of a radical Pakistani cleric, Sheikh Mubarak Gilani, Muslims of America has thousands of devoted followers who are being groomed for HOMEGROWN JIHAD.

    In never-before-seen video footage, the Christian Action Network exposes these dangerous terrorist compounds and reveals for the first time a secret training tape in which American Muslims are recruited to “join one of the most advanced training courses in Islamic military warfare”… right here in America! They are called “Soldiers of Allah” and they are trained in explosives, kidnapping, murder, firing weapons, and guerilla warfare. They are told, “Act like you are a friend, then kill him just like from the book.”]

    If any of these legal gun owners or their families are harmed because of this B.S.
    The person or persons who published their names and address’s should be held accountable as accessories to the crime.

    Who are liberals? Why do they believe what they believe? Why do they seem willing to destroy the America that the Founders envisioned? Lastly – why do they hate the Second Amendment and Christianity more than anything else?

    Liberalism is the relentless thirst for power. Have you ever noticed the arrogant, self righteous tone with which every liberal speaks? This is no accident.

    Every liberal holds the same dillusion within the deepest recesses of their hearts. It is the delusion that they will occupy a position of status and power within the coming socialist society. As they imagine and dream of the things to come they all see themselves in the same light – a socialist overlord with power over the masses. They become drunk with the dillusion of totalitarian power. They literally share the same daydream – it always starts with them sitting behind some large Soviet style desk in a large Soviet style office. Before them are the papers of decision – the documents with which they exercise complete and absolute power over the population. This is the dream that drives liberals.

    The liberal never gives any thought or consequence to the actions that must occur to secure this dream – the actions are inconsequential. It is only the dream that matters. Make no mistake – they are the same as any power mad dictator the world has seen. All who stand in their way will be imprisoned or executed – no exceptions.

    This is what we face everytime a liberal seeks to make policy. Take a minute and examine the actions of a liberal – any liberal – in this light. Tell me i’m wrong. . .

    Opps now County Clerk told Editorial Board publish it despite knew data incorrect. So, thank GOD it didn’t harm anyone currently. Anyway, it did prove Socialist Commie New York Times was able to act by publishing the data when the time comes. Get ready for the worst case scenario in the future. Barack Hussein Obama will use the chance properly to kick every gun owners ass if he had the right force being pushed down gun owners throat.
