BANG! Editor Fired After Publishing Gun-Owner Map

The editor of the New York newspaper who created a furor by obtaining the names and addresses of gun permit owners and publishing them suddenly is out of a job.

According to a report in the Rockland Times, a competitor to the Gannett-owned Rockland County Journal News, editor Caryn McBride is among the casualties of a recent purge at the Journal News.

The report describes how 17 journalists and a total of 26 staff members at the Journal News were let go.

It was the Journal News that in 2012 “took it upon itself to publish the names and addresses of all gun owners in Westchester and Rockland counties under the headline, ‘Where are the gun permits in your neighborhood?’” according to a BigPacReview report.
