NEW YORK (Reuters) - A suburban New York newspaper that sparked an uproar among gun enthusiasts by publishing names and addresses of residents holding pistol permits is now planning to publish even more identities of permit-toting locals.
Further names and addresses will be added as they become available to a map originally published on December 24 in the White Plains, New York-based Journal News, the newspaper said.
The original map listed thousands of pistol permit holders in suburban Westchester and Rockland counties just north of New York City.
Along with an article entitled "The gun owner next door: What you don't know about the weapons in your neighborhood," the map was compiled in response to the December 14 shooting deaths of 26 children and adults in Newtown, Connecticut, editors of the Gannett Corp.-owned newspaper said.

And I can assume this paper will also publish those who practiced freedom of speech and freedom of religion next?
Do they want to get put out of business? I haven’t read one account of people supporting them in this.
a question that needs to be asked of city officials would be “how do I make my records private?”
Don’t get me wrong. this stuff has to stop. But I think pressuring the government who is turning this info over is where the fix will be.
It is the main reason I do not purchase fire arms that need permits or reporting.
I wouldn’t be surprised if someone took it upon themselves to start retaliating in a more physical and less virtual way.
Soon they’ll have our Healthcare information. :D
I was thinking the same thing, theft will be easier at residences not listed....good going liberals
When I grew up in Rockland, the Journal-News was a liberal-leaning but halfway decent paper. This rag went down the crapper ever since Gannet took them over. Does this constitute invasion of privacy? Reckless endangerment? Could the Landmark Legal Foundation or the ACLJ help out?
Maybe a regular column featuring food stamp recipients would be fair.
Let them destroy each other.
It’s called Playing with the Tiger’s Tail.
They are so absorbed in their self-righteous indignance of someone else owning a gun, that they don’t even realize there could be a real nutjob out there that won’t stop with finding out email addresses, phone numbers, even home addresses.
It just isn’t something a sane person, moreso a parent, would do unless they were consumed with hate and self-righteousness of the left, oblivious to common sense.
Actually, some very good unintended consequences will come of this.
Having said that, the Journal News in poking a stick at the bear in hibernation.
There is an old saying, "some days you get the bear, some days the bear will get you."
Isn’t Obamaland great?
Now why don’t you shut your racist, ignorant faces and go pay your taxes. Your government is broke. :)
With the data warehousing and data mining capabilities of Google, Facebook and the NSA, just think of the lists and keyword associations that are possible for...OFA subscribers, DNC email lists, or...each of our health records.
It would be useful to post the name and address of every armed security person employed by all the elites who want to disarm the law-abiding citizens.
Our forefathers would have burned the records.
“I havent read one account of people supporting them in this.”
Where are they getting their money and ‘orders’ from? What is their connection to OFA and the DNC/Soros?
