Their names have been broadcast in bright daylight. Undercover officers, some who pose as bad guys that should not be allowed to have a pistol permit, outed by their own local newspaper.
Orangetown Police Chief Kevin Nulty joined a growing chorus in blasting The Journal News. I think The Journal-News went overboard on this, he said, noting that in his opinion the listing of names and addresses of gun permit holders jeopardizes their health and safety, and clearly jeopardizes the safety of all local undercover officers regardless of the department for which they work.
Joining Nulty and the County of Rockland Tuesday evening, the Orangetown Town Board publicly criticized the gun map of the Rockland County Journal-News-snip-
The strongly worded resolution, which was approved on a 4-0 vote with one abstention, was introduced by Republican Councilman Paul Valentine of Blauvelt and seconded by fellow GOP member Denis Troy of Pearl River. It was quickly supported by fellow Republicans Thomas Diviny and Thomas Morr.
Resolved that the Orangetown Town Board condemns The Journal-News for publishing the names and addresses of legal gun permit owners in Rockland County, the motion drafted by Morr read. This reporting was unnecessary and potentially dangerous, it concluded. snip-
Additionally, Nulty said the northern suburbs of Rockland and Westchester Counties are home to many federal undercover officers, whose identities are also supposed to be confidential, for their own safety and to safeguard their investigations. They include agents working for the FBI, the CIA, the Secret Service and all four branches of the military. As law-abiding citizens, if they carry guns, which most do, the chief said they apply for and receive local carry permits. Until The Journal-News published this information, however, their identities had always been kept secret.

Liberals never concern themselves with consequences, intended or otherwise. Their anti-gun or pro-abortion agenda overrides everything.
I wonder if there’s some way we can sic the Westboro Baptist Church on the Journal-News?
Read article twice.
My understanding , under cover cops posing as “bad guys” would only have guns illegally .
Flagging them as having permits , shows their not who they say they are.
First hunch is they’re cops by the bad guys.
I thought police didn’t have permits.
Both those liberal agenda result in the deaths of innocents.
Fairly makes my case that liberals are just plain unadulterated evil.
“I wonder if theres some way we can sic the Westboro Baptist Church on the Journal-News?”
Tell them that the J-N Staff are all gay!
For the undercover guys/gals, maybe that’s part of their “cover”.
Then I don’t understand how the news article hurts them.
I guess I’ll figure it out later. No worries.
I concur with you.
Might not even be a lie.
The problem is the 'permit' not the news publishing public info.
The Chief is attacking the press, instead of trying to remove the permit process, so every American can have a handgun in their house without first asking permission from the King.
Why would they need permits?
Can this be done? Sue the idiots who wrote the article and the newspaper for “endangerment” to the police officers.
Contrary to what those who believe the police only shoot dogs do, the policemen’s jobs are stressful enough without adding to it.
Smash their presses and shut them down. Sue them to poverty.
Although the police automatically "have permits" for their duty weapons, I believe most (if not all) cops also have personally owned firearms that they keep at home for the defense of their families and themselves in "off-duty" hours. Of course, the requirement for "permits" varies widely by geography.
Y’know, I had never even considered the aspect of undercover police officers being “outed” by that stupid “gun map”
I’m wondering now just how many undercover investigations have been potentially compromised by the arrogance of those idiots at the Journal News. On top of all the private citizens who already have also been put at risk, of course.

My god, how many undercover cops are there?
In some states a cop has to get a carry permit in order to carry off-duty.
How about a no knock dynamic entry search of the newspaper HQ along with the homes of the editor and publisher to determine if there are any improper links and payments from third party sources?
