Hypocrite anti-gun newspaper employees get mapped

When the New York Journal News came up with their big idea of mapping all the gun permit holders in their area. They released all?the names and home addresses of every pistol permit-holder in New York?s Westchester and Rockland counties.

I’ll bet that they didn’t realise, in their wildest dreams, they would get some push back.

We have already read how they have turned themselves in bigger hypocrites than the green taliban by hiring gun-toting security guards to protect their employees.

But now they have had all their staff crowd-source mapped too.

Undeterred by the fact that the handgun data was, by?state law, a matter of the public record, aggrieved gun owners retaliated. A crowdsourced?map?of the home addresses of?Journal News?employees ? including their home and work phone numbers when found ? went up. The site also listed the names and addresses of the paper?s local and national advertisers, suggesting?Journal News?readers write letters threatening to boycott their goods and services unless the?Journal News?took its map down. The New York State & Pistol Association urged a?boycott?of all Gannett enterprises, asserting that the map had ?put in harm?s way tens of thousands of lawful license holders.?

This is a classic case of the law of unintended consequences. But the News Journal staff can hardly complain…they let this particular genie out o the bottle..when they took their high and mighty attitude against?the?rights of people to protect themselves legally with properly?permitted?hand-guns.

The map indicates the addresses of all Journal News Employees in the New York Tri-State area. Each dot represents an individual Journal News employee — a reporter, editor or staffer. The data does not include freelancers ? reporters or photographers ? which can be hired without being an employee. Being included in this map does not mean the individual at a specific location is a responsible reporter or editor, just that they are a reporter or editor.

Data for all categories is included, but certain information is not available on an individual basis.

To create the map, Talk of the Sound submitted Google searches for the names and addresses of all Journal News employees in the New York Tri-State area. By state law, the information is public record.

Readers are still putting together records and could not immediately provide some data. The map will be updated when that data is released.
