The fallout continues. Not only has The Journal News faced a storm of criticism for publishing the names and addresses of gun owners, now it nearly had its first victim. A home owner Identified on the list has his home burglarized and the target appears to be the guns that were locked in a safe.

Do you have the rest of the story, if there was?

Truly I wish those who exposed and helped work toward exposing the names and addresses get a long jail sentence, and  sued to the point they lose their homes. It won't happen, but IMO is what should happen to show them what happens to you when you knew what the outcome of their exposing these peoples names and addresses would lead to. They knew.  Too bad they can't be sentenced for HOPING adults and children would be harmed/killed by what they did. I hope to God it doesn't happen, but that's exactly what they put out there knowing it can happen!

Newspaper Tells Gun Thieves Which Houses Have Guns to Steal

Map: Where are the gun permits in your neighborhood?

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.

So, now thieves will know which homes will likely have guns in them to steal, when the homeowner leaves. Liberal media types really aren't the brightest people, are they. It seems that the Left gets more insane, if they think they are scoring political points.
