Names and Addresses of Gunowners Published

A New York newspaper is under criticism for publishing the names and addresses of local gun owners on Monday.

In a piece titled, "The gun owner next door: What you don't know about the weapons in your neighborhood," the Journal News requested the names and adresses of local residents who are licensed to own handguns through Freedom of Information Law requests. The paper requested information from Westchester, Rockland and Putnam counties. The paper was only given the names and addresses of those who have a license to own a handgun. The paper was denied its requests for the amount and type of guns owned by those who have licenses. Putnam County was still working on the request and has not yet released information to the Journal News.

I heard on the radio today

that someone posted the address of the person who wrote this article and the publisher so that people can go to their house and ask them if they own guns :)

Don't Feed the Wolves!

Non-gun-owners are outraged that news media published the addresses of gun owners. Why? Because it means thieves will go around the gun totter's homes, and rob those that are defenseless.

If you've already done the search

it would be helpful to post the link.

An independent journalist just published the names, addresses and phone number of the newspaper's staff:


They left out some owners

Are the names of ATF, FBI and CIA gunowners on that list?

Non-gun owners should be more upset than gun owners

Gun owners register their guns, they already know the government knows who they are. Now all the murderers, burglars, rapists, etc. know who to avoid.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Who Doesn't Have Guns?

The lead article in Home Invaders Weekly Digest(satire) If such a periodical exists, I am unaware of it as I wrire this post.

With all due respect, I will no longer be a voting prostitute for Constitution rejecting harlots.
