Skip to comments.Inmates using newspaper's gun owner map to threaten guards, sheriff says (Rockland County)

Law enforcement officials from a New York region where a local paper published a map identifying gun owners say prisoners are using the information to intimidate guards.
Rockland County Sheriff Louis Falco, who spoke at a news conference flanked by other county officials, said the Journal News' decision to post an online map of names and addresses of handgun owners Dec. 23 has put law enforcement officers in danger.
"They have inmates coming up to them and telling them exactly where they live. That's not acceptable to me," Falco said, according to Newsday.

I’d know how big that lawsuit I’d launch, if I were the guard’s union.
Time to sue the crap out of that newspaper.
On what grounds?
Make them up as you go along.
Equal treatment under the law, suckers.
Well said, sir.
As I have said on other threads, we should post the addresses of those people who do not have gun permits on a Google Map because they are the “desirable” neighbors and I am sure you want to live next to them.
Gotta love liberal hypocrisy..when Sarah Palin made that map a few years back with the little crosshairs on it..the media went nuts, and accused her of being an accessory to murder..but here you have a newspaper who published the names and addresses of law abiding citizens(Including Judge Jeanine Pirro, a former judge who has guns to protect herself from loons she put away as a judge), and I have heard stories about how women who were domestic violence victims and stalking victims now being harassed by their abusers/stalkers because now they know who has a gun and who doesn’t..yet no one in the media is calling out the newspaper as being responsible in what is going on..apparently if your a liberal newspaper you can get away with ANYTHING

Why lower yourself to their level?
Rockland County has been going down the crapper ever since Sheriff Ray Lindemann died.
Texas doesn't have firearms permits. Don't know if NM does or not, but when I was there, I never registered any of mine.
Because it beats meeting them on their level when real bullets start to fly.
Last thing I want to see is a civil war with cordite smell wafting through American neighborhoods.
Best to be harsh up front. Harsher, even, than them, than have to have blood in the streets.
It's not the time to go-along-to-get-along.
But people in the USA do not understand the equal treatment clause.
Too many groups claim special privileges of being protected. Women, minorities and gays, come to mind.
Charge Gannett and it’s editorial/reporting staff with accessory to making terroristic threats.
again, sue the paper into the ground. eff them all, they all stood together on this, nobody spoke out against it.
When lefties make posters like this its fine..remember liberals don’t have any standards, never have
So, is the paper now called The Urinal Spews???
I wonder when law enforcement is going to wake up and give some “special attention” to the newspaper publisher, editors, and reporters.
Police are not required to have permits. Their badge is their permit.
So, some of those houses not labeled on the map belong to law enforcement.
