By The Right Scoop


If you live in Westchester and Rockland counties in New York and you are licensed to own a handgun, then your name and address is on an interactive map put together by a NY newspaper called Lohud.com. They say the information is public record but they don’t say why they chose to aggregate it into an interactive map for the public to see. My guess is they think guns are bad and that their viewers have a right to know if they are near a licensed gun owner.

Ugh (via Weasel Zippers):

The greatest study on the source of all evil. How to identify evil even when it is cloaked in “righteousness”. Click here for more information.

LOHUD.COM – The map indicates the addresses of all pistol permit holders in Westchester and Rockland counties. Each dot represents an individual permit holder licensed to own a handgun — a pistol or revolver. The data does not include owners of long guns — rifles or shotguns — which can be purchased without a permit. Being included in this map does not mean the individual at a specific location owns a weapon, just that they are licensed to do so.

Data for all permit categories, unrestricted carry, premises, business, employment, target and hunting, is included, but permit information is not available on an individual basis.

To create the map, The Journal News submitted Freedom of Information requests for the names and addresses of all pistol permit holders in Westchester, Rockland and Putnam. By state law, the information is public record.

Putnam is still putting together its records and could not immediately provide any data. The map will be updated when that data is released.

Are licensed gun owners the next 1%? Are we to profile gun owners now? Why create a map with names and addresses of people who own guns unless you are trying to make people think they are in danger?

Looks to me like the media is playing its part to attack the 2nd amendment and increase gun laws.

    Im not sure thats a bad thing.

  • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/ dmacleo

    people ask why they did this. its simple.
    they want others to protest and harass the homeowners so as to incite an altercation.
    if the homeowner gets hurt/killed they can say “See the guns did no good for the homeowner.”
    if the protester gets hurt/killed then they can say “See how guns get used, it was used to kill a person exercising their first amendment rights.”
    its a win-win for the progressive douches.

    • tinlizzieowner

      Bingo! I can see the headlines now.

        yup, sad huh?
        even sadder for about 10 minutes I think I would have agreed with freedom of speech restrictions. that bugged the hell out of me.
        I got over that though but the people there need to speak up and make their voices heard.
        this is not a battle we can fight by proxy for them. we can support them but they need to step up there.

      It is great to see a list that shows patriots!

      What is not stated is that the rest of those residents are a burden on the law enforcement resources, by not participating in their civic duty (AKA 2nd amendment) of preparing as part of the local militia. We should scorn those that fail to prepare to aid and protect their very own family and neighbor. What kind of citizen are these people, do they show caring and loving for the fellow human being by not preparing?

      This is a list of whom to go to for help. We should all write to this author and thank them for notifying the public of whom can be asked of for help in a crisis. We should also admonish the author for not doing so sooner. The local authorities could have used help in the distant past from honorable patriotic citizens like these.

      • old_crank

        Yes, and these people may be armed, in case you are thinking of a break-in at their house.

    • TWH’s R#1

      Regressive. There is nothing progressive about these insane, commiecrat control freaks.

    • physicsnut

      I grew up around there in LoHud as a boomer in the fifties and sixties.
      Not only did we not have to lock doors, and could leave the keys in the car. My mother flips when I lock my car because she seems to think it reflects badly on the good neighborhood. Actually it is just a habit from living in NYC for 12 years. But the big “problems” we had in high school were kids running in the halls and chewing gum in class. Anyone who doesn’t believe it ought to get on the phone with some teachers who remember.
      I was depressed on seeing a film clip of kids being taught various ways to deal with some mass murderer getting into their school. In other words – there is none of the actual security we enjoyed back then. That is the real loss.
      Remember that the Second Amendment is about the SECURITY of a free state, rather than waiting around until you are forced to defend yourself. Guns are only a small part of the larger picture of security.

    Hey, at least thieves know which houses NOT to rob.

    • http://www.therightscoop.com/ The Right Scoop

      That occurred to me. I wouldn’t be surprised if home burglaries go up in these counties because of this map.

      • http://black-avenger-1.livejournal.com/profile VirusX

        I’ll laugh my ass off if the map was wrong or incomplete, and when they go to rob houses, there’s a glut of fatal shootings from people the paper failed to identify as gun owners.

        • PatrickHenrysBody

          What is interesting is how many of those licensed to own a gun are members of law enforcement or the military, past and present. They do carry other firearms aside from their service weapons. That never occurs to them, though.

    • http://twitter.com/trickamsterdam patrick amsterdam

      Completely disagree. It’s a map to show WHO to rob. They’ll stake out the homes and figure out who has two working parents and school-age children. Those houses will be empty during he day.

      Then they hit 10, 20, even 50 or more houses in one eight-hour period. The guns have excellent street value. Then the gun control people say “see, this is why gun owners are irresponsible and dangerous…they’ve put our whole community in danger!” even though it was the gun control types who put out the map.

      For the record, I wouldn’t mind some magazine capacity limitations, because I think the killing power does help criminals in mass shootings…but is not necessary in virtually any home defense or CCW permit situation.

      Admittedly, I’m pretty old school…a lever action 357 carbine, 357 revolver, and 38 S&W airweight w/ laser dot can handle pretty much every situation I can think of. But things like this map tell me many Democrats are about to try to over-reach.

      So I’m more sympathetic to the people who have guns or magazines that may be banned now. Sensible liberals can’t blame us, w/ many liberals calling for the ban of virtually every handgun (“semi-automatics”) we gun-owners pretty clearly need to stick together and slow this down.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/OOKK3KBK7M2DX5OKOV7ODZ3QTA Jay

        Agree with you up to the standard capacity (30 on my AK) magazine restriction. You let them take one of your rights, that gives them the legitimacy in their own minds to take more.

      • BigDogJunction

        You’re trying to apply sane to insane.

        Sorry, the homes marked are off-limits. They’re not going to stake out @#$%, except for the EASY mark. The ones, that most likely don’t have guns. The houses with the signs, “screw the dog, worry about the homeowner” deter criminals. Unarmed people, do not.

        The street value of guns, don’t have @#$% on the value of an easy in and out, stealing jewelry and electronics, than having to worry about Dad, having forgot his project for work at home and oops!, there he is.

        Please… a little logic and reality applied here, OK?

        • http://twitter.com/trickamsterdam patrick amsterdam

          Not a bad point. My first reaction after reading the story was “they’ve practically given these people a license to steal”, and I posted on the spot, but then when I thought about it later I was like “the level of organized crime it involves in some ways doesn’t exist anymore”.

          The level of law enforcement technology has gotten to the point where the better ones are often caught faster than the stupider ones. The better ones get more attention and the tech does the rest.

          What I actually think is the most likely scenario, now that I’ve thought about it, is that the map probably doesn’t affect 99.99% of criminals one way or the other…because most probably don’t read anything other than the text message from the girl they tried to pick up at the club the night before.

          But if they were going to use the list, yeah, they’d probably go for the easier mark, than put the work in and make a real profit. Actually, if they did do the scheme I said, it’d probably bring so much heat they’d be finished pretty quickly. So you’re right that I tried to apply “sane to insane”.

          That still doesn’t excuse what that paper did. A “beware of owner” sign is a whole different thing. I don’t want random strangers on the internet knowing I have guns. Or specifically handguns. That’s my surprise if a situation develops. But your basic point about the criminals, yeah, you’re right.

    • warpmine

      Of course this is permits for pistol holders, not long guns. They(criminals) still should think about that.

    • Orangeone

      Burglars will be surprised when they find the “soft targets” have rifles :)

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        Yeah…or shotguns, which are the perfect close-quarters home defense weapons. With shotguns, one does not have to actually take dead aim at the target. Just make sure friends and/or family members are not in harm’s way.

    • ApplePie101

      On the other hand, who knew the liberal communities of Westchester and Rockland were packing so much heat? Considering that Westchester went roughly 2:1 for Obama, New York democrats should think twice before getting too busy with gun confiscation plans. They might wind up tangling with their own constituency.

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        If they still reside in the community they represent, I wonder if they pack heat themselves.

    This is freighting stuff. This appears to be the new tactic; identify and shame (for now). It was done in California to supporters of Prop 8. This is how Hitler started and we all now he was not satisfied with just putting a Star of David on their clothes. At their core, leftists are fascists.

    • Lives4Freedom

      You beat me to the punch over the public Jew identifier. This is a gross violation of privacy. We defeated a bill in Oregon this last year, that was designed to put concealed handgun carriers on public record….what’s next, my political affiliation? my faith?

      • Orangeone

        Public affiliation in MN is public info so I expect the trash papers here to publish it before the 2014 election.

        • Lives4Freedom

          I should have realized that some states do consider political registration as public information. There was a caller on Mark Levin’s radio show last week, who was talking about registering for his party while renewing his driver’s license. I was all, “what the heck is that doing on a driver’s license?!”

          • Orangeone

            I want to say OR published who didn’t vote in 2008 before the 2012 election so neighbors could harass one another and to give the voter fraud groupies the list of names and addresses they could vote for :(

      • 3seven77

        Political affiliation is already public record, as is your voting history.

        Edited to add: So is all the information about your home: when you bought it, how much you paid, what the taxes on it are, size, number of bedrooms, bathrooms, size of the lot, etc.

        NOTHING is off limits anymore.

        • Orangeone

          Voting history is not public record in every state.

      • bask_score

        Demonization and scapegoating of subgroups is a key weapon for fascists, one Winston Churchill recorded in “The Gathering Storm.”

        Next? Could be anybody. Some incident happens, and they use that to find another subgroup to demonize. It pits the population against itself, rather than looking critically at leadership and politicians, which is where the real damage is taking place.

        It IS regressive, and reactionary.

  • colliemum

    While I find this exercise totally objectionable – it is like a modern-day witch hunt – I also find it interesting to see how the ‘pistol owners’ are massed just that side of the NYC boundaries. Might it just be the case that these owners are aware of the lawlessness there, and are determined to protect themselves? And isn’t that saying something about the state of law enforcement in those areas?

    Btw – can that publication provide us now with statistics as to how many have died of gun shot wounds in those dense areas of ‘pistol owners’, as compared with NYC?

    • Orangeone

      Oh colliemum, I see a communication to that newspaper in your future asking for that info!

  • c4pfan

    Sounds like a waste of time to me.

  • Marridge

    For one thing it outs women who for some reason need to be armed. That in itself is a very bad thing.

        Then, you know what? I can’t feel really sorry for them. They’re Lemmings, armed maybe but still Lemmings, none the less.
        Now, that’s a generality but since their privacy has already been violated, I imagine it would be possible to determine the political affiliation of each and every one of these gun owners, if Barry’s minions haven’t already done that.
        That’s why I made a comment about ‘registered gun owners’ earlier.

    Why don’t they compile a list and a map of people who have guns illegally? Oh yeah, they are not the ones that they are concerned with, and you can’t keep them from having guns, and won’t know who and where. Maybe if we take away the guns of law abiders, the illegal guns will be used to kill the defensless people, and cops will have a chance to track them. Now I see the logic.

    The right of a citizen to keep and bear arm sis absolute. It does not derive from the government. It is one of the “high powers” delegated directly from the Constitution to the individual and is excepted out of the general powers of government. A law can not be passed to infringe or impair it, because it is above the law and independent of law making power.

    “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” (James Madison 1789)
    The Constitution shall never be construed ….to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceful citizens from keeping their own arms.” (Samuel Adams)
    “The whole of the Bill of Rights is a declaration of the right of the people at large or considered as individuals…. It establishes some rights of individuals as unalienable and which consequently no majority has a right to deprive them of.”
    New York Historical Society – Albert Gallatin 1789

    How lucky do you liberal newspaper clowns really feel?

    • ApplePie101

      The one thing I disagree with is that the right to bear arms is delegated from the constitution to the individual. Rather, the constitution forbids federal government from infringing upon an individual’s right to own and bear arms. Self-defense is a natural right.

      It would bother me. I’d be afraid my home would be broken into while I’m gone and criminals know to target my home for my weapons. And living alone (boyfriend currently serving in sandbox), I’d be afraid that multiple people would target me. I could deal with one intruder, but multiples coming in would be a bit too much for me, maybe.

  • marketcomp

    This is so incredibly sad! The politicians either the Gov. of New York, or the Mayor of New York should be ashamed because their responsibility is to uphold the Constitution which includes the 2nd amendment. The second amendment was to protect the citizen from tyranny, an overarching Government, and for individuals to have protection if the military beaks down so the citizen will have the ability to form a militia for and also protect themselves. Now we live in a dangerous world with Russia and China on the rise so why don’t the dumbass politicians see that this could happen. Moreover, the Governor of New York says the he would be open to confiscation of guns! Really! He should be thrown in jail for even thinking such an ignorant and illogical statement. New York is the breeding ground for any attack and the citizens in that State will be most vulnerable under any attack especially one from a tyrannical government. It is unconscionable what the government in New York is doing to it’s citizens. I mean hurricane Sandy should have been a good example of what happens when the citizen has no gun to protect their families and their properties.

    But listing the names could be a good thing. At least the criminals know where not to go. God Bless the citizens there.

    • Orangeone

      It also gives ammo to neighbors to report those with handguns to social services citing “child endangerment” with the result being the children ripped from the home and not returned until guns are surrendered.

      I have a sign in my car port that says “Don’t Worry About The Dog. Beware Of Owner”, with a skull looking at you down the sights of a double barreled shot gun.

      • 12grace

        I love it!

        • tinlizzieowner

          The prior owner had a “Beware Of Dog” sign firmly attached. Instead of taking it down, I just put my sign above it.

          • 12grace

            Very clever, t.

            • tinlizzieowner

              Not clever, lazy. Just re painted the house from blue to white. If I took it down, there would be a big blue square on the wall. Of course I could have touched it up but since it fit right in with the other sign (even though I don’t have a dog), I left it.
              It’s all a little ‘intellectual’ for the kind of people who would be trying to break into my house. Most likely, they would drugged school drop-outs, who don’t ‘read’ anyway.
              A red lazer spot in the middle of their chest is more likely to get their attention.

  • warpmine

    One thing for certain, if the criminal element decides to read this piece then they’ll jave a better idea on who they’ll hit next.

    Proof presents itself again and again demonstrating just how stupid liberals are.

  • davienne

    What could go wrong ?? let me see…
    the obamba regime can get his civilian army to raid these houses and confinscate their guns…
    the bad guys can watch the houses till no one is home and break in and steal the weapons.. then the criminals would have more guns…
    what could possibly go wrong…. Hmmmm

    • Orangeone

      The criminals commit crimes with the stolen weapons and the homeowner is arrested, tried, bankrupt and convicted.

      • davienne

        I had heard that … thats just wrong… but thats the reason i carry mine everywhere i go…

    • Nukeman60

      The criminals would have an easier time stealing my house than stealing my massive safe bolted to the wall which houses my weapons while I’m gone. They are only out of the safe when I am home and I guarantee they don’t want to enter then either.

      • davienne

        it sounds like the criminals would have a tough time … but the obumba goon squad wouldnt… gov quomo is pushing for manditory confiscation … or a manditory buy back … it wont happen, simply because legal law abiding gun owners will revolt… i hunt , I look forward to hunting season.. I get a 10 deer tag.. 8 of them go to the food pantries all over the state… there is 4 organizations of about 20 to 30 people in each..we get a 3 buffalo tag.. 2 goes to the pantrys… 25 turkey tag.. 6 antelope tag so what we do is for the state… and to take our guns would be devistating for our state

    It’s too bad that Lohud.com doesn’t put its efforts to better use by creating an interactive map of released felons and blinky lights for the convicted sex offenders. Now that would be useful information.

    Notice how permits to purchase and permits to carry are public but the list of welfare and foodstamp recipients is protected by federal and state law because of the “stigma”. I say, let’s open up the records and publish an interactive map so we can report welfare and foodstamp fraud.

    • physicsnut

      I was just looking for something like that – you got it exactly right.

    • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

      Since welfare and food stamps buy a lot of illegal drugs, they could use that map for drug enforcement.

      Not that I am for the drug war.

      • Orangeone

        Good point and they should! Many on drugs kill people by manufacturing, selling, driving under the influence, blowing up houses.

  • Susitna

    I understand that this kind of information is public record but the newspaper doesn’t have the right for mass dissemination. I would recommend these citizens to join forces and file a lawsuit. This madness has to stop. The liberals are provoking violent confrontations.

    The bad guys now know who doesn’t have at least a legal gun. If you live in those areas and you are not on that list, for your personal safety get on the list ASAP.

    They don’t seem to publish the crime rate in areas where there is a high incidence of gun ownership to areas that have low gun ownership rates.

    … And I’d like to see a map of obamaphone owners….ummm scratch that
    … make that a map of obamaphone users (obama already owns them)

    If its the gun owners they think they’re putting in danger then I feel real freaking sorry for the poor bastard who tries to make that case. Only a liberal would make a map to where his friends could get their ass’s shot.

    It’s also a map of unarmed homes. These idiots are going to get people killed, and they need to go to jail for this, right now. Cyber bullying, harassment, you name it. If they aren’t stopped, there will be blood.

    These gun owners are NOT sex offenders or child molesters… I would sue this rag newsgroup. Big time.

    The funny thing is, these gun owners likely would be the ones to STOP violence or robbery in their neighborhood… they are a positive, beneficial citizen to have in the area. It’s this “newspaper” that has become the menace to society.

        Agreed.

    • JimmyBobs22

      So having all sex offenders on public lists is ok? Not all sex offenders are a danger to their neighbors or soceity. I find it interesting that another group of people now get to deal with the same invasion of privacy that sex offenders have had to deal with.
      Another poster here said, ‘If any one of these listed people are attacked or harmed in anyway from this point out, the paper is liable for any and all damage and harm.” Hmmm… sex offenders have been sought out on the internet and harassed, even killed. No outrage there, though, eh?

      • KenInMontana

        This comment has got to be one of the pathetic failures in the history of the “moral equivalency” fallacy. Sex offenders are convicted felons, these are law abiding citizens who legally own firearms. Sex offender registries are published in compliance with existing law and are a consequence of violating the law. Quite a difference there.

        • Sober_Thinking

          You made my argument for me. :)

        • JimmyBobs22

          KenInMontana,
          I wasn’t trying to imply any moral equivalency. You missed my point. Of course sex offenders are “guilty” (or are they?! ) as opposed to someone owning a gun. To your points:

          No! Not all sex offenders are felons. You can commit a misdemeanor and be on the list for 20 years. (Wow, a LIFE sentence for a misdemeanor!!—who woulda thunk?!) You could have urinated in public. Or been just out of high school and had consentual sex with your sophomore girlfriend. Or you could have been picked up in a bar by an underage girl with a fake ID, etc. They are NOT all “dangerous” people that need to be subjected to harassment or worse by the public. You could have multiple DUI’s, commit murder, sell drugs to kids, beat your wife with a baseball bat, and after you served your time, you will NOT have to be on a public registry for all to see. Is that fair? But it’s there so politicians can score points, and no one will defend the practice, because no one wants to be associated with defending “sex offenders” who may not be a threat to anyone. (Did you know that about 85% or so of sex crimes are committed someone very well known to the victim? That is, NOT the strangers you see on the almighty “registry.”) So, why are they singled out? Because it gets votes, that’s why. The person who started the drive to get a “registry” only wanted it for police to refer to during amber alerts, etc. That makes sense. It then became public by politicians and self-righteous do-gooders. So your point, “Sex offender registries are published in compliance with existing law” rings hollow. It’s bad law. (Another point: this paper obtaining and publishing the names and address of people with guns was done IN COMPLIANCE WITH EXISTING LAW. So there, I guess that makes it totally alright. Right?)

          So some are singled out for a “public registry” while others are not. (Can you say moral equivalency here?) Is that fair? Ergo, the next step… suddenly even totally innocent people are singled out and put out there, because of… you got it… politics and self-righteous (in this case, liberal) do-gooders. I have always thought, “wait until they start putting another group of people on public registries, and see how they feel about it, all the while being fine with ‘THOSE’ kind of “other” people being on one and being subject to ridicule, harassment, and in some cases death by vigilantes.” Well, here you go…. I was right. Doesn’t feel too good, does it? The problem is, you start with one “class” of people, and the next is easier, and the next easier still, until what… smokers? I mean, you don’t want your kids in their house, right? Second-hand smoke is a carcinogen! You think I’m being ridiculous? First they came after cigarettes, and then guns, and then sex offenders, and then SUV’s, and then Oreo Cookies, and then salt, and then 20 oz drinks, and your kid’s sack lunch contents…. And now they’re back to guns.

          And in this whole context, you have to remember we’re talking about liberals, and they have no concept of moral equivalency. Anything that THEY don’t like, they will come after. Any means justifies their ends. So even though “everyone” feels the same about sex offenders (because they’ve been brainwashed by the press and the politicians into a one-size-fits-all perception), now you don’t like it that they’re trying to make “everyone” fear and loathe the gun owners. I mean, anyone who has a gun permit must intend to someday shoot up a classroom of kids, just like all sex offenders are lurking in their neighborhoods waiting for the next kid to snatch up and take to the pit in their basement. Right?!

          Here’s something that sums up the point I was trying to make, paraphrasing Martin Niemoller:
          “First they came for them, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t one of them. Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me.”

          • Sober_Thinking

            I think you make a good argument here.

            My take-away is this:

            1) We should quit classifying people. Putting them into classes, etc.

            2) The media and politicians are not our friend… and they play us every chance they can.

            Reasonable argument here.

            • JimmyBobs22

              Amen on both!

          • KenInMontana

            I am more than aware of the some of the “offenses” that can get an offender on the registry, the point is that they are convicted before being placed on the registry. The law abiding firearms owners, committed no crime nor were they convicted of any crime. Your paraphrasing of Niemoller is not particularly relevant in your comparison of law abiding citizens to convicted criminals, regardless of how you extrapolate it .

      • http://www.facebook.com/mikey.doe.96 Mikey Doe

        Unbelievable. Its hard to imagine that someone could actually think this and still remember to breathe.

        • JimmyBobs22

          Mikey,
          I can breathe quite well, actually. You obviously are unable to grasp the point of my argument. Either that, or you saw “sex offender” and had a knee-jerk reaction without thinking any further. If the former, I doubt that you are capable of following the intellectual paths down which this argument may lead, so you should drop out now and concentrate on your breathing.

      • Sober_Thinking

        I have mixed feelings here… Sex offenders committed a crime or they wouldn’t be identifiable. Gun owners have committed no crimes. Sex offenders have hurt people or ruined lives. Gun owners have the ability to help or protect lives.

        The only thing that causes me pause is you may have a valid point on one thing here… I’m not Libertarian but they might say that everyone has a right to privacy. I tend to agree to that to a point. If a house on my block had a known sex offender… I would definitely treat them differently, which is wrong. But knowing they’re there allows me to be more cautious – especially with my daughter. Like if I knew those home owners owned a pet tiger…

        So… I find your argument a bit curious… but I can see your side of this. I’m just not sure right now if I agree with it.

        • JimmyBobs22

          Sober,
          No, not all sex offenders have hurt people. Do some research of how many different ways a person can end up on the sex offender registry.

          Other than that, thanks for the reasoned response.

          Before I go, however, you said, “But knowing they’re there allows me to be more cautious.” Of course, that’s the “good intentions” of the law (but not all good intentions play out well in real life). But let me play the part of the people putting out the gun permit information, and say, “But knowing there is a gun in that house allows me to be more cautious about letting my kids play over there.” Hmmm…. Sounds “reasonable,” doesn’t it.

          • Sober_Thinking

            You may be right about the sex offender registry… I plead some ignorance there.

            Touche’ on the cautious around gun owners counterpoint… though there are likely many of them around now – possibly more than any other category of people (if you exclude race as a category). I know of many neighbors who have guns of all varieties around my home and frankly, because I have a rapport with those neighbors, I feel infinitely safer.

            I am firmly in support of gun ownership and the 2nd Amendment. My point, which I’m sure you got, is that there’s an unreasonable witch hunt going on after gun owners and the laws that we currently have… this seems to be the next “flavor of the month” for liberals in light of the tragedy in Connecticut. I continue to contend that the current laws are for the most part sufficient and that guns themselves aren’t the problem. All gun owners I know are good, honest, law-abiding people. And I’d rather have them armed and around me if a nut shows up with a gun.

            Have a great Christmas.

            • JimmyBobs22

              I absolutely agree! I am a gun owner myself. A shotgun, though, so I don’t have to be subject to this new witch hunt thankfully. I also want as many good people as possible around me to own guns. Wayne LaPierre’s statetment was absolutely correct!

              Hope you had a good Christmas, too.

  • demographicallychallenged

  • Biggbear52

    If any one of these listed people are attacked or harmed in anyway from this point out, the paper is liable for any and all damage and harm. This is to be done to the fullest extent of the law. Now on a positive note: the people that might do these gun owners harm, now know that they are armed and potentially deadly if attacked or put upon. So end result? you stupid criminals watch out for us gun owners we can, know how and will defend what and who we are!

Furthermore, I’d investigate criminal charges against everyone involved, including criminal invasion of privacy, depraved indifference and reckless endangerment. EVERYBODY affected should RUN to file a GIGANTIC tort against the paper, any parent organization, the writers, the editors and even the shareholders.

    The newspaper should be writing about things like the REAL ID.

    13 states meet REAL ID standards, remaining get deadline extension
    Thirteen states meet REAL ID standards, remaining get deadline extension

    Fri, 2012-12-21 07:47 AM By: Mark Rockwell

    Over a dozen states currently meet the Department of Homeland Security’s REAL ID national identity standards, while the remaining states that don’t currently comply will get extensions to do so come January 15.

    DHS said on December 20 that Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Iowa, Indiana, Maryland, Ohio, South Dakota, Tennessee, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming, met the REAL ID Act of 2005 standards for driver’s licenses and identification cards. The
    In its Dec. 20 statement, DHS commended those states for “the substantial progress in working toward these goals and the improvements in security for state-issued driver’s licenses and identification cards since 9/11.”

    However, the agency said, other states haven’t provided enough information for it to determine if they meet the act’s requirements. It granted a temporary deferment for all other states and territories to respond with additional information before it makes a final determination. DHS said it would continue to receive and review state submissions on a “rolling basis.”

    Many states have objected to the law, saying it is too costly and could tangle their motor vehicle departments with extra work, including lengthy background checks on all drivers’ license applicants, and that it carried some privacy rights concerns.
    Beginning January 15, 2013, said DHS, states that it finds haven’t met the standards will receive a temporary deferment allowing federal agencies to continue to accept their licenses and identification cards for boarding commercial aircraft, access to federal facilities, and entering nuclear power plants.

    DHS said its goal is to implement the REAL ID Act, as required by law, in a measured, fair, and responsible way. It said it would consult with states and stakeholders in the coming weeks and months to develop a schedule for the phased enforcement of the Act’s statutory prohibitions to ensure that residents of all states are treated fairly. DHS said it expects to publish that schedule by early fall 2013 and begin implementation at a “suitable date” afterwards. Until the schedule is implemented, it said, federal agencies can continue to accept driver’s licenses and identity cards issued by all states for official purposes.

    The REAL ID Act enacts the 9/11 Commission’s recommendation that the federal government “set standards for the issuance of sources of identification, such as driver’s licenses.” The act was crafted to prevent potential terrorists from using official state identification. The 9/11 hijackers had used state drivers’ licenses, among other bogus ID, to board the airplanes used in the attack.

    REAL ID, said DHS, establishes minimum security standards for license issuance and production and prohibits federal agencies from accepting for official purposes those documents issued by a state unless DHS determines that the state meets the minimum standards.

    The agency noted it has twice modified the statutory deadline to allow states more time to meet the statutory requirements of the act in the face of declining state revenues. DHS also noted that between fiscal 2008 and 2011, it awarded $263 million in grants to improve the security of state identification credentials.

    Irvin Baxter – The National I.D. Card

    Updated Proof that we are in the End Times | Prophecy in the News

    http://www.endtime.com/666-the-mark/

    Numbering the People
    Until recently, it has not been possible to number everyone on earth. As knowledge has increased in the last days, it has now become possible to globally enforce economic, political, and religious conformity. Globalists envision a new age of peace and security, with a one-world political system, a one-world economy, and a one-world religion.
    “Rogue states” are pressured into conforming to the world community through economic sanctions. The first thing the UN does is forbid non-conforming countries to trade with UN members. This type of national control may soon be exercised on the individual level.
    “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16-17
    Cashless Society
    Anyone who does not bow to the Antichrist and his religious partner, the False Prophet, will be put to death. When we raise our hands to worship God, we surrender all. Satan’s counterfeit of true worship will begin with the arrival of the cashless society.
    Even with many credit card transactions you still have to sign a piece of paper. Keeping paper records increases costs dramatically. If a transaction is done electronically, it saves nearly one dollar per transaction.
    Crime is a major factor. In a cashless society, no one will be in jail for bank robbery because there will be nothing to steal. Also, a cashless society is very attractive to the IRS, because, if the government has records of everything you do, it will be able to withdraw taxes from your income before you have a chance to spend it.
    Will You Take the Mark?
    Revelation 14 tells us what will happen to those who take the mark:
    “And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” Revelation 14:9-11
    It is a permanent designation of ownership applied to your forehead or right hand. Anyone who takes the mark will be eternally lost. It is the mark of eternal destruction. In the digital age to come, the enforcement of financial obligations will not be difficult because failure to pay up could be disastrous. Your account could be cut off, making you a non-person for not paying your bills, for refusing to join the global financial system.
    No Secret
    The implementation of the technology that will become the forerunner of the Mark of the Beast has not been done in secret. It has been building for a long time. In fact, globalists boast of the progress they have made to digitize all commerce.
    What Will the “Mark of the Beast” be Like?
    You cannot get the Mark of the Beast accidentally. You will have to make a conscious choice to receive it. You will have to mean it. After all, you will be pledging your allegiance, dedicating your whole life to the most attractive, charismatic dictator the world has ever known. The False Prophet will make worship of the beast almost irresistible. You will be promised protection, eternal life, peace and prosperity, if you worship the being who claims to be God, and receive his special mark. People will line up to get it. They will be allowed to buy food, water, medicine and clothes. They will feel honored to get it. Most other people will be getting the mark. Will you want to stand out as one of the few holdouts? Taking the mark will be the logical, intelligent, patriotic thing to do.
    Real ID Rebellion
    Many states have decided to reject the unfunded mandates of the REAL ID Act, a massive national identification program the federal government is trying to foist on the American people through their states’ drivers licensing systems. It has been promoted as the solution to national security, illegal immigration, identity fraud and more. In reality, the federal government wants to coerce states into building a multi-billion dollar system for identifying, tracking, and controlling law-abiding citizens.
    Real ID Dead or Alive?
    At one point, with so many states refusing to comply, and the Department of Homeland Security continuing to issue deadline extensions, Real ID was considered dead in the water. Real ID was buried, but it did not stay dead.
    While other versions of a national identification system, such as the “enhanced social security card” or the “Workers ID Card” continue to be introduced in Congress, the Real ID Act is already being fully implemented in many states with a final deadline, nationwide, of January 15, 2013! The problem is that with estimated implementation costs in the billions, many states cannot afford this, and the federal government will not fund it.
    Mark of the Beast Needed to Buy or Sell
    According to Revelation 13:15-18, every person will be forced to have a number, without which they will be unable to buy or sell. If you want to have a job, you must have a valid, government recognized ID, and be in the global database. No job? No buying or selling. When this system is activated worldwide, the mechanism will be in place for implementation of the Mark of the Beast that was prophesied 2,000 years ago.

    Just received this tweet: I did not know that @janhasson, publisher of the Journal-News, lives at 3 Gate House Lane, Mamaroneck, NY 10534

      I posted earlier that everyone connected with the “newspaper” should have their names and addresses posted on the web, along with an interactive map as they did to the registered gun owners. But … I would caution everyone not to end up causing the same thing that happened to that poor couple in FL who’s address was wrongly tweeted by Spike Lee as the address of George Zimmerman and they had to leave because of the death threats.

      One difference … conservatives generally don’t sent death threats to people because said people did something we didn’t like (-:

      • Orangeone

        The address was confirmed by multiple sources.  You are correct, conservatives don’t spew death threats but they do need to start standing up and pushing back or the liberals will continue to mow over with sharper and sharper blades.

    I didn’t read all the posts on this thread, so if I repeat what someone else has posted, sorry for jumping on the band wagon. I really only have one observation/question. Why hasn’t the tolerant left spoken out against this profiling? There were groups within the so called tolerant left who spoke out against the listing of sex offenders, so why not stand up for these law abiding citizens and ask for this web site and map to be taken down? IMHO this is just more proof of the left’s hypocrisy.

    • Orangeone

      Thank you for that great insight!

  • lemontreegarden

    Okay, I’m liberal and I think this is disgusting. I don’t know how this is even legal and I hope they get sued. I don’t even like how lawsuit happy our culture is, but this is just wrong on so many levels. I’m seriously angry over this.

    This is arguably like what libs were complaining about with Sarah Palin’s so-called “gun sights” map, but now reversed back on themselves. These libs have just gone and painted a bunch of gun sights on the residents of two entire counties. Now any gun crime in those counties can be directly blamed on them (which there undoubtedly will be now).

  • Nukeman60

    Two things come to mind:

    One, it’s nice to know this area is well defended. No gun-free zone here.

    And two, I’m thinking we need to put together an interactive map showing all the names and addresses of people who signed any petition to ban guns. I’m sure the bad guys would just love to know which houses were easier targets for them. They certainly don’t want to go around any of the houses in the map above, that’s for sure.

  • ApplePie101

    I’d want to be sure my name was on that map. Lohud.com is revealing which households are unprotected by firearms. Those people had better go out and get armed right away.

    That!s why you have to register – to take away your privacy and liberty in every way you can. You don’t have as much power as you think. If anything comes down, they’ll hunt you down one by one, and get the mobs against you “fast and furiously”.

    They tried this in IL for all Firearm Owner ID holders and it was opposed by the State Police as well as all the 2A rights groups. Thankfully, the court decided against the People’s Republik and our info remains private.

    • http://twitter.com/alpipkin Al Pipkin

      Difference from this event was that it was the IL Attorneys General’s office that was going to publish the list rather than a private organization. Courts have jurisdiction over the AG’s action. The only thing the courts can do here is find damage against the “newspaper” after damage has been done, i.e. someone’s house has been robbed and evidence shows it was a result of this article.

    “Are licensed gun owners the next 1%?”
    Of course! It’s the same old “divide and conquer” game that the libtards always attempted to play. If you can’t win your argument based on fact and common sense, you attack your opponent personally. In this case, it’s NOT going to work. Restricting firearms is much akin to banning rocks, ice picks, knives, cars, bows and arrows, fireplace pokers, and on and on. When does the craziness STOP. Anyway, the 2nd amendment, as are the rest of the amendments, are there to protect personal freedoms. PERSONAL FREEDOM from being attacked by a tyrannical out-of-control government.

    DO NOT GIVE UP YOUR PERSONAL RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS!

    Not for nothing what about some innocent guy taking a leak behind a dumpster in the dark of night. If the corrupt cops witness in detail such a crime the poor bastard gets arrested and is labeled a sexual offender and most of all his name and address is publicized in every community media outlet. But of course a pervert cop enjoys a paid suspension while the corrupt cop union squashes the incident.

    Now criminals know where to safely rob or rape or murder people. As well as now they know where to go get firearms! Thumbs up journal news!

  • physicsnut

    what if Adam Lanza drove a Lexus into a playground full of children and killed twenty. Would the Journal News make an interactive map of Lexus owners in Westchester ? I am sure the editors know some cops who would think it totally insane.
    And by the way – when it comes to civil strife, the South Bronx was not reduced to rubble with guns, but rather by arson;. Gas and rags or newspapers being cheaper than guns.
    I mentioned scapegoating before – and here is a textbook example of it. The Journal News has decided on its own that the Second Amendment is not legitimate. I wonder how many other idiots are out there who get the same notion.
    The first time I saw an actual handgun, I was visiting someone in the east village, going up the stairs somebody left their door half open – it was some large dude filling glassine envelopes with white powder and he had a great big 45 automatic next to his hand. I just kept going up the stairs – wondering if I had a weird expression on my face. Offhand, given the context, I suspect that this dude did not stand in line at the county clerk’s office to get a permit. They don’t give permits to anybody in Manhattan unless you are a movie star.

    Cool. Pay attention criminals. You do not want to go anywhere where there is a red dot. Chances go up dramatically your day will be ruined if you do. Thanks for putting that together, it will be very helpful in keeping the criminals from getting shot. And we all know we need more criminals.

    Send these people with red dots a bonus in their tax returns for being real Americans and supporting the constitution.

  • Guest1776rcp

    Morons! What they did was give criminals a check list of homes not to burglarize, any address not on the list is good to go without fear of being shot by the home owner. Morons!

    why do you illustrate this article with old photos of Uzi combat machine gun that was used during the 60’s in the IDF? How many criminal shootings took place in the U.S. A with an Israeli machine guns? Graphic editor needs to grow up, this is a public platform, please show some responsibility. if you are clueless about weapons, ask before you use the photo, don’t need to diminsh from something that has a certain meaning by abusing it.

    I hope those on identified in the neighborhood of the editor will pay her a personal visit to give her an earful. Bet her house is on the market in a few weeks. Can you imagine if they treat her like you might a RSO?

  • Jaels_Song

    Let me see…

    If I were a criminal, I would hit all the places without guns.

    • dontdrinkthecoolaid

      My exact thoughts, hit the places that don’t have guns. Unbelieveable. To this the newspaper wasted its resources on this, when they could have been doing real investigative journalism, like finding the crooks.

  • Conniption Fitz

    Looks like they are letting criminals know which homeowner not to challenge.

    Or they are letting the terrorists know which homeowners to take out first.

    These are wealthy people who should take the persons responsible to court.

    I call it thinning the herd. Thanks NY criminals. You know where all the easy marks are at. Far as I’m concerned, they are enemies of this country. They subvert the Constitution of the United States. THEY are enemies both foreign AND domestic.

    Have a feast on ‘em, any random, violent criminal that might read this.

    It’s a war on guns.

    I hope we go over the fiscal cliff, I dont buy it for a second that Obama and his minions are not going to be blamed for this, I hope that the Obamabots that voted for Obama are hit the hardest with this, I am going to be paying a little bit more if the fiscal cliff happens, me and my wife are willing to sacrifice to make people understand what they voted for.
