If you live in New York’s Westchester and Rockland counties, The Journal News gave rapists, thieves and murderers the best Christmas present they could ever hope for… a roadmap of the homes they should avoid and those which they can target without fear.
The Journal News decided to aid and abet criminals by publishing the names and addresses of hundreds of law abiding citizens who have a legal permit for a gun.
A criminal’s worst nightmare is being confronted by a would-be victim who has the means to protect themselves and their family. The criminal’s intention is to commit their crime and get away with it. Clear-thinking people know this.
Think of all the homes you’ve seen with a “Beware of Dog” sign. Property owners post a sign like this to deter criminals by letting them know of the violent force they’ll encounter should they attempt to enter the property. Home security systems are another method of protection used by millions of families to deter criminals.
Thanks to The Journal News, criminals now know the addresses of those who may confront them with a gun. But most importantly, the published list lets them know the homes where they will NOT be confronted with a gun, thereby further increasing the chance of their success in committing the intended crime.
An attack dog, security system or gun owner presents more resistance and, until now, criminals could only hope their victims didn’t have a gun.
However, in Westchester and Rockland counties, criminals now know which homes present the least resistance.
Just as mass murderers choose “Gun Free Zones,” criminals who seek to rape, steal, murder, kidnap, etc. choose people and places they believe will present the least resistance. The Journal News gave criminals a big assist.
It’s time to inform the media and politicians that criminals commit crimes – duh! They break the law and that’s why they’re called criminals. A crime is an act or the commission of an act that is forbidden by a public law.
The sickening display of politicians and news/print media trying to advance their oppressive agenda plays out with their targets – the ‘useful idiots’ in our society who lack the ability to think clearly or to use logic and reason.
Spurred by the Newtown massacre, The Journal News decided to aide and abet criminals.
They claim they submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to obtain the names and addresses of gun owners. Since when is a request made and then fulfilled by any government agency, within 5 working days?
Collusion by news/print media and the government is rampant in our country, as is illustrated by what’s been done here.
The Journal News and the government agency that provided them with the names and addresses need to be held responsible for telling rapists, thieves and murderers which homes to target in Westchester and Rockland counties.
Update: In a tweet from Stuart – @Ringo6, we were informed that “Dwight Worley is the reporter who wrote the article giving out info on gunowners in NY and CT.” Dwight’s phone number is: 718.527.0832.
Noisyroom reader Geo informed us that Putnam County, NY is also included in the article’s map. In addition, Geo says, “The article noted that the columnist was a licensed Hand Gun owner, but conveniently, left out of the article HIS home address. How nice!”
