Lib Paper Hires Armed Guards at Offices After Posting Maps of Legal Pistol Permit Holders

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.

Less than two weeks later the newspaper has hired armed guards to protect the paper’s offices.
The Rockland Times reported:

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.

UPDATE: Group claims hacked subscriber database of NY newspaper which published gun permit map
