Hypocrite anti-gun newspaper hires armed guards to protect themselves

The New York Journal News is a local newspaper that recently published the names and addresses of every local resident with a gun permit.

Not surprisingly they’ve suffered a backlash and have had threats made against them… so the newspaper that is against gun ownership has hired armed security guards for protection.

A suburban New York newspaper that ignited a furor by publishing the identities of thousands of residents who hold gun licenses has hired armed security to guard its staff after receiving an intimidating e-mail, a police report said.

Among a “large amount of negative correspondence” that White Plains, New York-based Journal News has received since publishing permit holders’ names was one e-mail in which the sender “wondered what would get in her mail next,” according to a Clarkstown, New York, police report obtained by Reuters on Wednesday.

The editor, Caryn McBride, told police the newspaper hired a private security company whose “employees are armed and will be on site during business hours,” the report said. The guards are protecting the newspaper’s staff and Rockland County offices in West Nyack, New York.

Police told McBride the e-mail did not contain an explicit threat that could compel authorities to take action against the sender. The menacing e-mail was reported to police on December 28.

Calls to the newspaper and the security firm, RGA Investigations, were not immediately returned.

What a bunch of hypocrites…they were against gun ownership and now they hide behind them.

Isn’t their shield fo sanctimony bullet-proof enough?

My take is the newspaper has simply proven the reason the USA (or anywhere elese for that matter) needs private legal gun ownership. They feel unsafe so want armed protection that the Police are unable to adequately provide – the very armed protection that I bet a majority of those legal permit-carrying gun owners want (and have).

Hypocrisy even the Greens would be proud of….they certainly don’t have the courage of their convictions…they are Yellow.
