Brewster, N.Y. – 1/13/2013 – Today Senator Greg Ball (Patterson – R, C, I) announced that a burglary has been reported on Davis Ave. in White Plains, New York that evidently ties into The Journal News gun maps. It is reported that the burglar used The Journal News’ interactive gun map to target a home included on the map. Luckily the gun was locked up and no one was hurt.

If true, the paper should be held criminally liable.

I’m surprised it took this long.

Luckily the gun was locked up and no one was hurt.

Luckily? A better outcome would have been for the perp to assume room temperature.

But I can see the point. The perp apparently did not get the gun.

It’s amazing when you don’t live entirely based on your emotions, you can foresee something like this happening.

Hey now, let’s not forget, when a liberal makes a map its for the “Common good” therefore they are not responsible for what they do, liberals are never responsible for anything

But if a perp DOES steal a weapon and use it to commit a crime, who do you think will receive the blame? My bet would be on the gun owner - for not securing his/her weapons well enough.

It’s only a matter of time before 1) a weapon is stolen and used to commit a crime or 2) an attempted theft results in bodily harm to either the gun owner or the thief.

A law needs to be passed that when a couple of political HOs are going to publish your personal information as part of the DNC’s political, commie propaganda, the HOs should be required to notify everyone whose name is to be published so they can take the appropriate precautions.

' It is reported that the burglar used The Journal News’ interactive gun map to target a home included on the map.'

That could have happened. The way he phrases his info is classic third person lying and cover.

He still is an idiot for supporting the continuation of gun permits, instead of calling for the abolition of such permits.

I doubt there’s any way they can be found CRIMINALLY liable... but... pain and suffering caused by their irresponsible actions?

One can easily imagine the scene in some liability attorney’s office tomorrow morning: “Ashley, would you get me a phone number for these folks who just got their home broken into?”

Enough examples of that might put a company completely out of business. Just sayin’.

I mean, it seems to me these are consequences that could have been reasonably foreseen by anyone with one eye and half sense.

I doubt the story is true.

If I were a burglar, I would look for houses which did not have a gun.

That’s good news unless Judge Jeanine Pirro gets her hands on them first. Judge Pirro is really hot about this. I don’t blame her.

“The Affiliated Police Association of Westchester County Inc. is putting The Journal News on notice that we will hold [them] accountable for any incident where any of our over 25,000 members are involved with an incident where a criminal or ex-con presents themselves at the residence of one of our members as a result of their name being made public by [their] newspaper,” said Buckley.

That’s because you’d be a “let’s grab some stuff and not get shot” kind of burglar.

There are other burglars who think, “Hmmm... Guns. Good. Let’s just wait until the owner is away, and then it’s payday.”

It is the homes without guns I would be worried about. Easy enough to check addresses on streets to see if they were gun owners.

IIRC, tarring and feathering also involved stripping the person naked first, and setting the feathers on fire and giving them a chance to run to the nearest body of water to survive.

Not when AR's are selling for $3000 and handguns are rising. Try to get $3k for a big screen TV or laptop. Jackpot!

Class action, baby!

Guy whose house was burglarized was damaged, due to membership in the class of people whose residences were mapped.

Everyone in the class was damaged, with the damage to show up later. Like asbestos, like tobacco, except that asbestos and tobacco have some good side to their use.

The map isn’t necessarily responsive to which houses don’t have a gun; only which houses don’t have a REGISTERED gun.

It is however, almost certainly responsive to which residences do in fact have a gun.

That being the case, the chances of it being used for nefarious purposes would almost singularly be to acquire a stolen gun. The method would be to case the place to find out when the owners aren’t home, and try to rob the house/steal the firearm while they are away.

The criminals who would use this map would be looking for guns to steal but not looking to run into their owners holding them.

Luckily the gun was locked up and no one was hurt.

In other words, it was a responsible gun owner who was minding his own business, until "outed" by the Journal News as if they were a criminal.

One sheriff is poised to sue for socks. Read that prison guards and officers are in line for threats, now that prisoners and their pals on the outside know exactly where to locate the throats of their wives and kids, die to the map. Witness protection is at risk as well as battered wives hiding, and also many people on the map have since moved making the map inaccurate, with the address occupying completely different people from the map, so this is very serious.

What do you want to bet that the attempted gun theft was a gun-grabber trying to implicate other gun owners?

That is typically the scenario that we have seen of late.
