Newspaper Hires Armed Guards After It Enraged The Community By Publishing Info On Local Gun Owners

Caryn McBride, Journal News Rockland Editor

A New York state newspaper is taking drastic steps to protect its staff after it enraged gun owners in two counties.

The Journal News, a Gannett-owned newspaper in Westchester, N.Y., published a map showing the names and addresses of licensed gun owners in Westchester and Rockland counties.

The Journal News tried to do the same for Putnam County, but the newspaper's request for records was denied because of the outrage the map had already caused in Westchester County.

That outrage was so intense the newspaper resorted to hiring armed security guards to man its headquarters after receiving multiple threats, The Rockland Country Times reported Tuesday.

The threats were reportedly so concerning, Journal News Rockland Editor Caryn McBride filed at least two reports with local police.

One reader decided to use a different tactic to express his anger at the newspaper.

After the map was published, incensed reader Christopher Fountain used his blog to release the name, home address, and phone number of the paper's publisher, editor, and the reporters behind the map.

Seth Harrison has been a staff photographer at The Journal News since 1987. In that time, he has covered 9/11, elections in Israel, national political conventions, several World Series, and all facets of local news. Covering national and international events is exciting, however Harrison gains tremendous satisfaction telling the stories close to home. “The mother who has dedicated her life to helping to find a cure for the rare and fatal disease that afflicts her son, the story of troubled children housed in residential treatment centers, or the scores of young Mormon’s who come to this area every year to try to spread their faith, are the types of stories that allow me to step in to the lives of our neighbors and offer a glimpse of lives that, while unfolding right around the corner, are very different from our own.” Harrison has a bachelor’s degree in photojournalism from Rochester Institute of Technology. A lower Westchester resident, he was born in Brooklyn, and grew up in Yonkers and Hastings-on-Hudson. He is married with three daughters.

People, when will we realize the media is a combatant in this war?

So it’s legitimate to employ arms for protection if you’re a leftist newspaper but illegitimate if you’re a private citizen. Got it.

Since the newspaper sees no problem publishing that kind of information I trust they'll now publish the names and addresses of every recent divorcee? I'm sure the newly-divorced women of their area will appreciate that...

Look at that!

The gun control issue is already creating jobs in the O’conomy.

I wonder if the newspaper published the names of the armed guards they hired?

We can’t continue to accept the goals they state as their actual goals. They give themselves the air of benevolence, when their actual goals are power to the elites and the rest living in subservience.

We need to start from the statement of their actual goal and show how their issue positions are steps toward that goal.

A leftist exposed is a leftist defeated.

Someone should call their “late breaking news line” to report armed men on the premises...

That they hired armed men to protect them? That may be publicity to you but it is bad publicity for them who exposed the names/addresses of those who have guns - as some kind of warning to others.

So, we can expect them to publish the names and addresses of their newly hired armed guard?

Otherwise, they exemplify the height of hypocrisy.

Is there any reason to post all this? If you object to the publishing of the names and addresses of gun owners, isn’t this hypocritical?

More public information about these individuals can be found on several search engines.

For instance, go to drudge, and check out http://www.refdesk.com/ (drudge’s dad’s website)

or

or search “people search”, “zaba base”, “white pages”.

Ping. Post #4 reminds me of FEDLIST.ZIP in your novel, Enemies Foreign and Domestic. I suspect we’ll need FEDLIST before long, for reals.

You know, I’ve often thought two conservative neighbors should put that sign up, switching the position of the arrow.

Neighbor #1: “All right, it’s *my* turn to get the unsuspecting goblins. *YOU* had all the fun *last* time.

Neighbor #2: “Oh, I barely got any last time with our bait sign. It can be your turn next month.....”

They were against guns before they were for guns. Or in at least one writer’s case, he was a gun owner before he wrote the piece against guns so is he now for or against them?

Ask the German Jews of the 1920s and 30s what the passive acceptance of this kind of “soft terrorism” leads to.

You can’t fight fire with lollipops and rainbows.

I don’t think it’s hypocritical, because the journalists, by their actions, have stated that they have no objection to it, so their opinion is on record. Nobody bothered to ask the gun owners.

Combatants? Enemy combatants, more like. But the snooty newsers don't have to worry about me shooting them.

I've got a freshly sharpend M5 bayonet just for them if and when The Day comes. It's that personal.
