    I love it. They are nothing but cowards and they proved that by hiring ARMED guards for themselves. Liberals love to talk tough but it's just talk. BTW, I hate the media and I always will. They are the most vile scum on this planet and the enemies of real America.

    It's a shame too, the media could be one of our greatest defense against an expanding government too but they're compliant with them.

    Do you think before you type? You are being a bit of a hypocrite, seeing how you are yourself using and taking part in the media by posting here, so what you say about the media applies at this moment to yourself.

    @PoliticalSpice "Do you think before you type?" You could ask the same question of half the posters on this website...lol

    the only reason to put that up was to cause problems,yet showing their true selves by hiring those guards.

    That's the crux of the problem, and it's HUGE. Know where to steal a gun, know who doesn't have one. Mind boggling; it's like giving a treasure map to criminals.

    There was no apology in that article I read. Their law department advised them that they were very likely to be held liable with myriad law suits resulting from crimes committed as a result of publishing this list. This woman should be fired forthwith, or re-assigned to San Francisco where she and Nancy Pelosi can enjoy high tea and play mahjong.

    I think that publishing the personal information of legal gun owners creates more incentive for obtaining and possessing firearms illegally.

    It is a good idea for the public to know this information this would be just one way you could cross reference people with mental problems.

    @Thunderchicken But you could see if they owned a gun and act accordingly to confiscate it. As it stands now there is no way to tell.

    @Raptor

    Don't you think that if the government already has the information on who owns what,(That's where the paper got it.) they've already checked to see who is legally entitled to own a gun? And who is this "you" that would do the confiscating? It sounds like you mean a general citizen if you want the information published.

    Does the acronym HIPA ring a bell. Ding dong you may be entitled to legal gun owners general info but health info is VERY protected and releasing it can get you in VERY BIG trouble. Anyone.

    The only thing I can think of is once posted to the internet, it never goes away.....we do know that, right?
    Besides, I want criminals to know I have guns. I also have video security, motion sensor lights and heavy, dead bolted doors secured with 4" screws on the hinges and dead bolt strike plate. Not paranoid what so ever......but sometimes my trigger finger does get itchy! LOL

    I don't see what the big problem was. Seems to me if these people own guns they shouldn't be afraid right? That's what every other poster on here insists, that they are used for protection. Well, protect yourselves ya wusses.
    Typical whining from this sort of person. They are the big bad ass when they have something in their corner, once the odds are made even, its crybaby city.

    I have a fairly impressive collection of weapons and train with federal firearm instructors, what does all that mean? I'm not scared, I am pretty proficient with them. If I lived in New York, I would be more upset if this map was posted and I did not have weapons. All my weapons are insured, so somewhere in this world my name is attached to my weapons. That newspaper did a bad thing and then compounded the issue by hiring armed guards... the newspaper is the wuss. Just my humble opinion!

    @texas_cutie75 Did they do a bad thing? Of course they did, I think that much is pretty obvious.
    Again, I don't see the problem here. If you have guns and your big defense in having them is protection, what are you worried about? Protect thyself.

    Boycotts hurt, don't they? I bet they've been boycotted by Police Officers, both NRA members and non-NRA members who are gun owners, and by advertisers in favor of the 2nd Amendment. In this age of diminishing print-media sales, they can't afford to antagonize large segments of the newspaper-reading public. Criminals, and would-be anti-2nd Amendment terrorists are about the only ones who would like to see this type of Yellow Journalism by newspapers. Glad that the Urinal News of Westchester County, NY, re-thought their actions. tinyurl dot com/Jim-McCauley

    How stupid can these questions become? This map was like a map for all criminals that shouts "Hey, these are not the safe area's to Rape, Rob, Kill and or Mame" go somewhere else..!!

    Yes it is to late the damage is done. And, your right about these gutless news casters. I had to deal with them when I was in Nam (67-68). These vultures would fly in when the action was almost completely done, or listen to the field radios & draw up how bad we were getting our butts kicked and, getting that intel when they weren't even there. All, from the confines of their air conditioned hotel room sipping on some suds while we're getting our asses shot off!!!!

    The news papers only intent was to hope gun owner were shamed into giving up their weapons, otherwise they would have placed the dots on the map without the personal info. Once again the media and the anti-gun citizenry misunderstand not only gun owners but people who uphold the constitution. I spend far too much time on this site and so often hear about gun owners fearing a tyranical govt and just waiting with baited breath for the showdown, but strangely (or not) it is those who oppose guns that are the ones repeating this nonsense. My family owns guns,lots of them, but it's not our gun you should fear from me.

    It was posted just shortly that after the map was exposed some of those houses were burgurlized & guns were stolen. Why were the guns NOT locked up ? 2 parties at fault.... owner , burgular.
  • #55

    Well think if it wasn't locked up, the owner gets burglarized at night, stabbed because it was locked up.. its not the owners fault, its the newspaper's fault. They should not have the right to throw out that stuff.

    All gun owners should cancel their subscriptions and all advertisement and see how the paper likes that freedom to identify.
  • #54

    Exactly right. I agree 100%. The newspaper has victimized both, the gun owners and the defenseless. Now the perps know where to steal guns when the homeowner is away and they know which unarmed homes to break into if they are in the business of rape, terror and/or pillage if they are so inclined. I knew it was just a matter of time before the Freedom of Information Act would be misused. It has been being misused from day one. This act by the newspaper disgusts me.
