Default Newspaper Publishes Names and Addresses of Gun Owners in NY

Quote:
An interactive map showing the names and addresses of all handgun permit-holders in New York's Westchester and Rockland counties has drawn a response from mostly disgruntled readers since it was posted Saturday on a newspaper's website.

The interactive map published by the Journal News, prompting more than 1,300 comments as of Tuesday, allows readers to zoom in on red dots that indicate which residents are licensed to own pistols or revolvers.

It's amazing how many anti-gun people are out there praising this and talking about their 1st Amendment rights, while trying to squash the 2nd with intimidation and dangerous practices like this.

The stupidity in this country is just astounding.

This is public records. There's nothing wrong about this.

There's nothing wrong with irresponsible journalism that could result in robberies and more guns on the street?

So you'd be cool if I obtained a list of all gay people who have joined in civil unions/marriages and published their names and addresses? Keep in mind all those who haven't "come out" to their coworkers, or don't want their kids friends at school to know, or any other number of reasons they may want to keep that information somewhat private?

How about we then publish a list of people who have been molested as children, because after all, it's public record and there's nothing wrong with sharing that information with everyone.

How about we then publish a list of people who've been raped?

There are a lot of public records out there....should we just publish everyone's name and address so that everyone knows their business?

Should we publish a list of everyone's income and where they live?

Great response, you said it so I didn't have to write all that.

Heads up, reps incoming

Horse shit.

Anybody that thinks publishing public records as to where guns are located and publishing who's been raped, molested as a child, or happens to be gay are the same thing needs their fucking head examined.

Maybe the fuckheads that are normally so PROUD of their guns would find themselves in a tight spot if someone they know sees the record and realizes, "Hey! I know that guy! He's fuckin' CRAZY! What's he doing with a gun?!?"

Truth and freedom of the press are great.... right up until they get your guns taken away because you shouldn't have had them in the first place.

Maybe if this had been in place in Connecticut, somebody would have realized that Lanza's mom had guns and that maybe she shouldn't have had them in the house after all.

OMFG! Derr goin' tah take mah GUNS! On Noes!

What's their reasoning for doing this? (I understand it is info in the public domain anyway)

But what is their point?

I guess it's a 'full disclosure' sort of thing. Maybe see the whackos comin' down the pike ahead of time for a change.

The mentally ill that are in possession of weapons will fight this tooth and nail. Watch....

It's all public record. That's all that matters, right? Fuck responsibility, it's all about freedom.

I'm sure you'd feel the same if someone published all your crazy rants and stories and handed them over to your clients, bosses, business partners, neighbors, whatever. After all, you've made them public information and you seem awfully proud of your antics.

They're great until they put people in unnecessary danger.

Everyone that knew her knew she had guns in the house. Guess that makes your comment about butt fucking stupid, now doesn't it?
