Well, here is the map to the employees of the newspaper that published the gun owners addresses:

“Public records. Hmmmm. Like divorce, DUIs and any other arrests? Could get interesting.”

“Maybe a regular column featuring food stamp recipients would be fair.”

Or list how many newspaper staff are delinquent on their student loans, alimony, child support, etc.

The newspaper needs to realize that it has only a limited number of staff researchers.

Dan Rather was unable to foresee “Buckhead” and the Pajamas Media. That and his hubris was his downfall.

What ever they get they are asking for. Yes, it's sad but journolists don't think of consequences for their actions.

They want to have criminals to know where not to go to invade a home (or to go well armed and kill the gun owner and his family and steal his guns) and don't mind setting up people that use their Right To Keep And Bear Arms.

So they set themselves to be venerable to robbery and great bodily harm.

It's on them.

Didja see the map?

Gannett's a disgrace.

About a decade ago, the local Gannett rag, under local political pressure, fired a reporter that insisted on attended a public meeting that was excluding [mostly] white males.

He reported on the violation of the law, and the local pols didn't appreciate the Sun shining on them.

He reached an undisclosed settlement with Gannett over the unjustified termination.

re:
"Someone will do the research and pull something from these maps that the so-called newspaper isn’t gonna like very much."
Perhaps this map serves as a fishing expedition of sorts after all. It has been reported that The Journal News posted the map in response to the Sandy Hook massacre.

If that was the paper's motivation, it suggests they were hoping that readers would check their neighborhoods and follow up with concerns if any of the licenced hand gun owners residences also housed individuals with mental illness given the high frequency reportage of Adam Lanza's mental deficiencies and alleged access to his mother's weapons. Despite the fact that 20 year old Adam Lanza was reported to have been of above-average or high intelligence, which also suggests that as a determined hostile, he didn't necessarily wait for permission to use his mother's weapons, given his mother was the first fatality.

It's not difficult to suggest these gestapo like tactics have multiple nefarious goals beyond intimidation (failed), especially since the map reveals the flags extend well outside of the two - three counties originally mentioned. Simply zoom out and note the additional flags outside of that limited region of NY. The points flagged in Texas and California appear to have Westchester NY addresses. Are these attempts to reveal where the wealthier multiple home-owners have additional addresses?

The Journal News appears to be unfamiliar with the law of unintended consequences. Some lessons are best learned the hard way.

Yup, well said.

You'd think they would get it now that their middle to upperclass homes' addresses have been outed in response to their outing gunowners.

One poster up thread said something like, How do I get on the gunowners list? LOL

Publish all the names and addresses of the paper’s entire staff. Explain that none of these people have any firearms and promise not to interfere with any criminals who may find them easy targets.

Likewise all the people outed can find out which neighbors aren’t armed and set up the appropriate signs, if they start getting grief (my neighbor is unarmed I won’t stop you if you rob them)....

They could get sued easily for this. If anyone dies and the criminal mentions these articles are how they targeted victims, for one.

Other reasons - because there may be people in hiding from spouses or people trying to hurt them.

DOLTS!

Also, if staff of this paper have guns, did they leave themselves off the published list?

Find. Stalk. Abuse. Kill.

Restraining orders sometimes don't work at all.

Ex-wife is a target either way when the ex-husband is just nuts, which is why ex-wife left and maybe has a gun and a permit.

Oh man just imagine what would happen if you did. You would get sued probably.

Liberals would rather be killed, beat up, raped...what ever home invaders do...than be protected by evil guns!

Of course the high profile leftists who scream that no one should have guns, have armed bodyguards and work in buildings that are safe because of armed security.

the map was compiled in response to the December 14 shooting deaths of 26 children

So a psycho kills his mother, steals her lawfully acquired firearms, and kills 26 children and the thoughtful response is to publish the names and addresses of lawful gun permit holders?

This is liberalism.

[”The gun owner next door: What you don't know about the weapons in your neighborhood.”]

What can nosey neighbors do when they learn the guy next door owns a firearm? Because gun ownership is legal there's nothing legal they can do. But they can start a whispering campaign, shun the gun owner in public, and sic their children on the armed neighbor's kids. They could picket and put signs in their yards. That's what the Journal News hopes to accomplish: run gun owners out of the state by stigmatizing them. This is all in the spirit of Obamaism—mob rule.

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.

I'm not convinced that the government should have disclosed this information under New York's Freedom of Information Law (FOIL). Under the NY FOIL law government can withhold information that could, if disclosed, endanger the life or safety of a person or where disclosure constitutes an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. Think about it.

So lemme get this straight: These scribes decide to publish private info on law-abiding citizens, and in an unprecedented move on the part of Real Americans, a public database listing the personal info on the scribes is created in retaliation.

Brilliant. So the hack-scribes now wanna double down on this?

They want to play rough? Fine.

Just imagine if you will: A few Real Americans in that newspaper's direct marketing area getting together for some early morning First Amendment covert ops.

1) And they PRINT numerous copies of the journOlist as possible (we all know what that is, right?)They make sure to include a URL link to the list as well, and why the information is being made available.

2) As they drive around town, they made note of the key locations where one can buy that paper from their own vending machines.

3) If it's a daily paper, the machines are usually filled between 3-5 am each day. On a given day of their choosing...

... they insert a copy of the journOlist between every newspaper copy. Oh, and just imagine they made SURE you hit the machine that is on the inbound side of the train station. it would be a great conversation starter on the ride in that day.

(Or, they could simply tape a copy to the top of the vending machine)

Oh, and to make sure no one could accuse them of breaking the law, they made sure they all pay for and took only one newspaper when the covert op took place.

No need for me to explain. I'll let the reader just imagine the fruitful results of such a covert op ever happened ...

[[If this isn’t inciting death threats, I don’t know what is! Can’t they be sued for that alone?]]

They aren’t actually directly inciting death threats- I’m sure they’ve talked with their high profile expensive lawyers and know where the thin line ends and know where not to trread regardign hte issue and so know how far to push the issue without actually being guilty of inciting murder- They will get to claim that they can not control a sick person’s mind if soem sick operson shoudl attack one of thsoe gun owners- but hte fact that they woudl even push so far shows that they are the truly sick ones in all this- knowign that their actions most likely WILL end in violence when someoen takes mattrers into their own hands-

The left do whatever they like these days, knowing they will never suffer the consequences of their actions because the mainstream media will NEVER follow through on the story if one of their own does soemthign wrong-

I uswed to think ancient rome was a city fileld with pure evil, and thought how terrible it msut have been to have the government actually inciting death agaisnt Christians back in those days- but we’re beginnign to see the very same thigns palying outr here today with our government actively attackign the church and with the left deleriously attackign law abidign citizens while pushign for ‘the rights’ of illegals and criminals-

You know, durign hte election Romney was accused of ‘not carign abotu hte children or abotu hte elderly’ and thsoe FALSE accusations made it impossible for him to be elected- but here we see the left BLATANTLY disregardign hte welfare of children and the elderly and the media does absolutely NOTHING abotu villifying the new york newspaper for actually and really doign what they FALSELY accused Romeny for doing-

The hypocrisy is unbeleivable! I guess in order to get anywhere in this life, you need to be a militant leftist and break all the rules you want and just lie htrough your teeth all the time- I’m thinking of desertign this country by takign up citizenship in mexico just so I can then sneak across he boarder ILLEGALLY juast so I can have all the rights given to me that are denied to LAW ABIDING CITIZENS here

Target their advertisers and subscribers . .

This is a great idea that unfortunately hasn't gotten much traction in the Conservative movement. In reality, this is about the only way we can really put the hurt on Media Organizations like this one. Scare off enough advertisers and they lose big $$$ - then and only then will the Media back off of bad/slanted reporting or stunts like this. They could care less how many bad or negative comments they get. Too bad not one so called Conservative "Leader" will publicly call for a mass boycott of a News Media Organizations or Networks commercial advertisers.

Add the name and address and phone number of each “journOlist” that writes the article

A blogger has already published the names and contact info on nearly every employee (including publishers, editors and reporters) of this newspaper and put it on an interactive map. Link from earlier FR thread about this below:
