Skip to comments.Inmates using newspaper's gun owner map to threaten guards, sheriff says (Rockland County)
Posted on 01/04/2013 4:14:10 PM PST by Libloather
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 am surprised that the names and addresses of the permit holders are not exempted from release by a state privacy act?
There is no limit to the stupidity of Leftist jackasses.
Addresses of criminals and their families.
Lists of Women who have had abortions (Ann Coulter’s idea)
Names of men who carry the HIV virus - what restaurants they work for - and if they're collecting full Social Security payments.. (bankrupting the system for the elderly and people who REALLY are disabled)
Just sue ‘em. Sue them into oblivion, so they have to shutter their building and fire each and every employee from the top editor to the janitor!
They deserve no less. In fact, they deserve even worse, but we aren’t tough minded enough as a country to REALLY give them what they deserve!!
Because that is the only level that works in today's society.
Better to sue the advertisers for enabling the commie papers. You will have a more wide ranging effect.
On what grounds?
Enabling commies to enable the criminals to cause harm.
Make them up as you go along.
Any good arguments are acceptable
They do if you want to take a certified firearm’s safety course. Other than that, this is New Mexico.
2014 midterm elections ping. Thanks Libloather.
Other than some rattlesnakes at or near my feet, and one crazy skunk that would NOT leave me alone, they didn't get used for much but plinking.
Because refusing to stoop to your enemy’s level, only gets you cut off at the knees.
During the Revolution, the Brits “refused to stoop to the level of those animal Americans” (meaning guerrilla/Indian tactics, hiding, hitting officers and running away, it was ‘barbaric’ don’t you know).
And we all know how that turned out.
I’ll bet their advertisers soon dry up!
In PA, we don’t “register” weapons. The only time you need a “permit” is if you carry concealed.
If the weapon is in plain sight, like on the dashboard of the car, “theoretically” it is NOT concealed, and therefore legal.
Now, that will cause a boat load of controversy. Thing may have changed and I’m not going to discuss it past this point.
I used to go everywhere on my BMW, complete with a saddle sheath, rifle plainly visible from the back of the bike. It was funny, on the turnpike, I’d pass Joe homebody with all his kids in the car, and all of them would point fingers and bother dad. At the rest stops, the ninnny nannies would pee themselves and run to find the nearest LEO.
PA State Bulls at that time were professional. “Yes ma’m, we can see he has rifle, and that’s as it should be.”
The looks of confusion were priceless.
This is where, and another reason why, that “shall not be infringed” part of the 2nd Amendment comes in.
I do think some states may (possibly) be able to justify a right to controll via a training/permitting process, of their citizens ability to “openly brandish” lethal weapons, specifically any visable, holstered handguns and knives.
Iffy, but then again, whenever I encounter uniformed police officers openly carrying weapons at the corner gas station or grocery store, I tend to become hyper-aware of personal space separation issues, and not give them any excuse to attack me.
BTW, quite a few of them would be easily disarmed and attacked with their own weapons, if I (little old lady, law abiding me) was intent on committing such a crime.
That newspaper should be shut down
Liberals have to be some of the stupidest people on the face of the earth.
It's is most acceptable. Maybe the scum called "corrections officers" will think twice about abusing inmates and treat them with some modicum of civility.
The family of my enemy is my enemy also.
Bingo. That is why the GOP gets shellacked every election: they put on an "we're above all that" air and get clobbered. Got to use street-fight tactics.
Almost always legally.(LOL)
Once in New Mexico, I brandished a tiny handgun to avert a potential “car jacking” situation, before the term “car jacking” was coined.New Mexico was an open carry state at that time.
Whether or not I still have any or even all of the guns listed on my next to the last official USAF PCS travel order, is nobodies business but my own.
I am certain the Feds have retained those records, but unsure if they would have ever shared them with Rockland County, NY, had I decided to settle there.
In Florida, real property ownership are public records and available online. Unless you are in the ‘special class’.
VIP status is given to LEO, judges, other govt officials, retired as well.
Equal treatment under the law is DENIED in Florida. Taxes and assessments are supposed to be for ALL citizens to see. When you exclude certain ones, citizens cannot even start to track cheating or special provision given to the VIP class. Property assessment is supposed to take all properties sold within a defined geographic area into consideration. Just how is that accomplished behind closed doors.
They don’t care about our 2nd Amendment rights - why should we care about their 1st Amendment rights?
It’s goose and gander - and yeah, first person murdered because what they printed - and yeah, sue ‘em. Take it all the way - - weaken their protections, compromise their rights. It’s what they’re doing...
