Posted on 12/24/2012 6:52:36 AM PST by Old Sarge
A New York Newspaper Printed the names and addresses of every Licensed Pistol Permit holder in two Counties and another County is being posted shortly! This is a massive privacy breach and the latest in a series of over the top emotional reactions to the latest shooting tragedy in Sandy Hook CT meant to intimidate the lawful and prey on peoples fears to exploit the gun grabbing agenda.
In an article title The gun owner next door: What you dont know about the weapons in your neighborhood the paper linked to an interactive map titled: Map: Where are the gun permits in your neighborhood? where you can search neighborhoods to see who received a legal permit to own a hand gun license listed by name and address.

The source article can be found HERE.
The publication, something called Lohud.com, is a front company for - wait for it - Gannett!
If you are reading this, please notify the Bang List, and any other ping list you have.
This is only the beginning - The Left is now bold enough to not even bother hiding the coming agenda!
PING to something hideous...
The left needs a certain amount of killing to push their agenda. This will help them accumulate more collateral damage for their cause.
FYI, to notify the banglist, just add "banglist" in your keywords which someone already has.
Speechless, that map works! At least, you can get a name. I think I may be pulling up stakes soon. Harder tohit a moving target?
The mask is off. They’re not even TRYING to hide it now.
So now if someone harasses a permit holder and winds up getting shot, then they were forewarned by the media, so they shouldn’t complain?
It is a serious breach of privacy, But we have reached the point where we shouldn’t care too much. Someone confronts you, respond.
Thanks for the Banglist tip.
Doesn’t this violate the Hatch Act?
It is also probably illegal. Time for class action suit by all the permit holders against the paper.
We don't live in that area, but I'd be happy to know my neighbors were armed. I'd feel a lot safer in this liberal world because of it.
How long before members of the liberal media get gunned down or at least tarred and feathered ?
This rag of a newspaper has done this before. Every time any kind of notable shooting occurs they post this crap. I didn’t see my name there yet.
Would you rather live in a neighborhood that was armed or unarmed?
I’ll take the armed neighborhood — and, according to John Lott, neighborhoods where citizens are armed are much safer and have less crime.
Criminals want citizens unarmed, it makes their “jobs” easier. Is a criminal going to break into a home with a “Beware of Owner” sign on it with a photo of a large gun? Or a home without such a sign?
If I were moving, I’d make use of that map in a second. I have more to fear from criminals than I do from my neighbors.
Great thing the newsaper is doing! If I lived there, everyone would now know I carry. I would love it to be announced! Super idea!
The Hatch Act of 1939, officially An Act to Prevent Pernicious Political Activities, is a United States federal law whose main provision is to prohibit employees (civil servants) in the executive branch of the federal government, except the president, vice-president, and certain designated high-level officials of the executive branch, from engaging in partisan political activity. The law was named for Senator Carl Hatch of New Mexico.
According to Wiki, seems it only applies to Federal Employees.
This like a sex offender registry.
That was my feeling as well, legal gun owners are not the ones to fear. This is to scare the idiot who says things like “that gun may GO OFF and hurt someone”. I have heard someone make that very statement! Idiot!
LOVE your tagline!
