New York Newspaper to Release More Names of Gun Permit Owners After Uproar

Following the shooting in Newtown, CT a suburban New York newspaper sparked quite an uproar among gun enthusiasts by publishing names and addresses of residents who held pistol permits. Now this same newspaper is looking to publish even more names.

More names and addresses will bed added to a map that was originally posted on Christmas Eve in the Journal News from White Plains, NY. The first map listed thousands of pistol permit holders in Westchester and Rockland county, which are just north of New York City.

Along with an article entitled “The gun owner next door: What you don’t know about the weapons in your neighborhood,” the map was compiled in response to the December 14 shooting deaths of 26 children and adults in Newtown, Connecticut, editors of the Gannett Corp.-owned newspaper said.

    Lets hope the pistol permit holders in the area are smart enough to cancel their subscriptions.

    That will only allow the criminals to know which houses do not have a gun, and so will be easier for them to rob.

    This same thing happened in Cleveland Ohio. The Plain Dealer published the names of CFL holders in the 3 country area. I immediately cancelled the communist rag and never looked back. The paper is now on the verge of bankruptcy. Smile.

    cancel subscriptions, lobby advertisers to pull ads, No Income from ads= No newspaper revenue.
    Kill the ads then see them change Tunes

    Put up signs in your front yards pointing to the neighbors house who is unarmed. Tell the crooks exactly which houses are unarmed. Especially the newspapers employees, editors etc.

      Please always keep in mind that this isn’t a disagreement between gun owners and those who have chosen to remain unarmed. This is a fight between those who UNDERSTAND that the 2nd Amendment is a defence against a tyrannical government and those who are confused about its purpose.

    The only way to hurt this crappy newspaper is to notify the advertisers that you won’t buy from them as long they advertise in that paper…. Once their pocket book is effected they will change…. Right now they have a hit because everybody is talking about the gun owners… Go to the advertisers and that will make a difference….
