Hypocrisy! Journal News Hires Armed Security Guards

timthumb-550x258

If you’ll remember, The Journal News published a Google map containing the names and addresses of those in 2 NY counties who have handgun permits. This was purely done in an attempt to shame and expose those who expressed their 2nd Amendment rights. Of course, what it did was tell criminals which homes they should not rob, namely those with guns. But, what about The Journal News itself?

(Rockland County Times) Guns are good for the goose but NOT for the gander.

A Clarkstown police report issued on December 28, 2012, confirmed that The Journal News has hired armed security guards from New City-based RGA Investigations and that they are manning the newspaper’s Rockland County headquarters at 1 Crosfield Ave., West Nyack, through at least tomorrow, Wednesday, January 2, 2013.

According to police reports on public record, Journal News Rockland Editor Caryn A. McBride was alarmed by the volume of “negative correspondence,” namely an avalanche of phone calls and emails to the Journal News office, following the newspaper’s publishing of a map of all pistol permit holders in Rockland and Westchester.

Due to apparent safety concerns, the newspaper then decided to hire RGA Investigations to provide armed personnel to man the location.

    Well, the Journal has proved they are idiots . . . twice now.

      We really need to do that to NBC, CNN, CBS, ABC & MSNBC… It is amazing how we have allowed these commies to infliltrate our land and trying to steal our freedoms.

      • fliteking

        Agreed.

      • Get Real

        I concur these these networks are enemies of the people!

  • Michael Geer

    Is Journal News going to publish the names and addresses of the armed guards?

  • mesaman

    Most newspapers are dedicated to the liberal socialist cause so their only real value is that of wrapping the wet garbage in, covering the parrot cage floor, covering the bed of kitty litter, lighting the fireplace, and rolling it up so you can swat your unruly kid on the behind. I suspect the “hypocrit Journal News” is not even fit for any ot those functions.

    Hahaaaheeeeeha…. well…. great news.

  • Jeff

    That’s what you get when you open your big fat mouth! Liberal media tried to put the spot light on good law abiding citzens and it backfired in there face.

    • ddt

      well they can run but they cannot hide
      they should not have opened that can of worms

  • sheinLV

    Are those armed guards names on their list?

  • R. Caprisky

    The best thing is to just not purchase their paper, and then not support any merchant who advertises with them and as soon as their revenues start going south, you will see a rapid change in their philosophy!

      Its time to find out who advertises with them and call and inform them not to support the paper.

    this IS NOT HYPOCRISY ;; the left wants the law armed and the citizens helpless;; it is stupidity; nothing else;;liberalism is a mental disorder; they are wired wrong. America will not be “right” until there IS NO LEFT.

      Sorry but it is hypocrisy. Armed security guards are NOT Law Enforcement personnel – they are simply armed civilians wearing a uniform.

      It is interesting that a civilian in a blue uniform or a brown uniform that looks similar to a police uniform (favored by security guards) is not considered threatening but a civilian wearing a camouflaged uniform similar to that worn by our military (favored by militias and hunters and hikers) are viewed with jaundiced eyes and Homeland Security considers them as potential domestic terrorists.

      Having participated in firearms qualifications for both security guards and militia members, the security guards are more apt to shoot and less apt to hit what they aim at. (Of course they emulate many police officers in that respect too.)

    Now isn’t that special? Life can be so ridiculous.

  • Jed54

    They need to have everyone within the white house, TSA, CIA, FBI,addresses listed for public view.

  • TIGERPAWS

    ANOTHER ONE OF THE DEMOS IDEAS GONE TO THE DOGS. THEY CAN THANK OBAMA FOR LOOSING THEIR BUSINESS AND ADDING TO THE UNEMPLOYMENT FIGURES.

  • KDS

    If there allowed to take just one mag from gun owners they will be empowered to take more and more and more. We have to stop this now! Not tomorrow or the next day but now. It’s becoming more clear that
    our elected officials are proving they will not defend us from gun control or anything else. This is an outrage. Obama needs to go to prison where he can serve his time there. This man is a fanatic Muslim.
    Muslim law isn’t pretty for even petty theft. He’s a traitor which has been proved time and time again. We
    do not need any more information from or about him. His course for this country is pure EVIL.

  • KDS

    Obama said we were to get the same Health Insurance that Congress has. Did we get it? Absolutely not.
    Instead we got a Healthcare program that is an economy killer. He needs armed guards to protect him and his kids. But for us? He wants to leave us unprotected and defenseless. He said he’d get the boarder issue taken care of to make it safer for Americans. But there again he leaves it open so everyone that wants to get in, gets in. Then were told that sleeper cells are set up all over the country.
    This man has already defied our way of government and needs to be arrested immediately for Treason.
    If necessary the army should march on Washington and dump his ass in the military facility at Gitmo.

  • waterman

    What we need to do is get their names and addresses and publish them and pass along several copies to all the prison systems So they won’t have to worry about any resistance.
    They are nothing but a bunch of scared wusses that thinks that if something happens that a cop will be there instantly to stop the crime, what the idiots don’t realize is that the cops are usually not there until the crime has already been committed.

  • fliteking

    Just heard on Fox per the ACLJ that 40% of the names released are those of Police Officers and 12% are those that have Orders of Protection against ex-significant others.

    Obviously this is cherry picking but still shows a callous disregard by the Journal not to mention a lack of integrity.

    Why cherry picking? The remainder are likely hard working males, and obviously law abiding males otherwise they would not have been granted a license for a handgun.

    Only idiots would demonize any of the above people.

    I look forward to destroying responses by idiots liberals.
