Anti-Gun Newspaper Hires Armed Security

Anti-Gun Newspaper Hires Armed Security
SCREENSHOT
The Journal News hired armed security guards to man its Rockland County, N.Y., headquarters.

The New York news organization that recently published a list of names and addresses of pistol permit holders in its locale has, in response to a torrent of angry phone calls and email, hired armed guards to defend its offices.

The Journal News elicited national controversy when it released an interactive map of pistol permit holders’ names and addresses in Rockland and Westchester counties on Dec. 23. The newspaper’s editors said they believe knowing where guns are located is a matter of public interest. The newspaper also took a strong editorial position in favor of strict gun control.

But following a barrage of angry phone calls and emails from gun owners that felt they were lampooned in the news for owning firearms as if they were sex offenders, the anti-gun publication felt the need to hire armed guards to protect its offices.

From another local publication, the Rockland County Times:

Guns are good for the goose but NOT for the gander.

A Clarkstown police report issued on December 28, 2012, confirmed that The Journal News has hired armed security guards from New City-based RGA Investigations and that they are manning the newspaper’s Rockland County headquarters at 1 Crosfield Ave., West Nyack, through at least tomorrow, Wednesday, January 2, 2013.

Meanwhile, despite anti-gun campaigning from media outlets like The Journal News and a number of politicians, the FBI reports that the number of background checks for gun purchases in America hit a new record in December.

    Ah yes typical anti-gun liberal stance…..do as I say not as I do.

    • eddie47d

      The problem also lies with the extreme right wingers who can’t stand the free speech of Liberals. If they speak they will be threatened with guns. Yes this newspaper had to defend itself from a possible attack or intrusion. Dianne Feinstein gets threatened by NRA “gangbangers” who want to take her out in more ways than one. The pro gun advocates have alot of people in their sites and they hope some nut job will do their dirty work for them.There are too many right wing wackos not to take precautions. Same with abortion doctors where the right wing threatens and do kill them. Its about Muslim places of worship which are continually threatened and burned down by right wing thugs. Should they arm themselves? Considering there are several acts of violence against them then hell yes! Owning a weapon doesn’t give anyone the right to threaten anyone but its done all the time. Good gun owners/bad gun owners its darn hard to tell the difference!

      • Sheepdog on patrol

        So, eddie, do you suppose releasing the whereabouts of handgun permit holders was a responsible act? Can you see that there are a lot of permit holders in outlying rural areas? Do you think this tid bit of irresponsible released information just might make it easier for some “left wing” nut job to know where they can steal a handgun? By the way, James Holms, the Aurora shooter who killed all those innocent people in Colorado was a self professed Liberal. Did you hear about the guy in San Antonio who went into the cafe where his girlfriend worked to kill her and after doing so, he followed the fleeing patrons next door into a movie theatre where an off duty Sheriff deputy drew her personal off duty weapon and put four bullets into the murderer? Of course not! The news media which is controlled by all of YOU left wing nut jobs doesn’t want us to hear about the many times someone with a concealled gun prevents more carnage. Crawl back into your hole eddie. Those of us who are educated and informed know all about your type.

        • j.l. hertz

          very well said

      • WhiteFalcon

        This newspaper feels threatned BECAUSE of their unwarrented and illegal intrusion into other peoples lives, also because of their endangering of the non gun owners who have now been threatened with criminal activity because criminals now know where to go and not have any opposition. I sincerely hope that this news paper is forced out of business. I hope that there is a class action lawsuit against it for about a million dollars for each gun owner that was identified.

      • Rio Honaker

        If they where not trying to create a hostile enviroment they would not have this too. It ia a ploy , Please people keep your Eyes on the ball this is a distraction not an issue.

      • Bob

        Is this more what you had in mind eddie [expletive deleted]

        All hell broke loose on Nov. 10: “Nazis Smash, Loot and Burn Jewish Shops and Temples.” “One of the first legal measures issued was an order by Heinrich Himmler, commander of all German police, forbidding Jews to possess any weapons whatever and imposing a penalty of twenty years confinement in a concentration camp upon every Jew found in possession of a weapon hereafter.”3 Thousands of Jews were taken away.

        Invading Nazi troops in Holland in 1940 immediately nailed up posters announcing a ban on all firearms. From Die Deutsche Wochenshau, May 15, 1940.
        Searches of Jewish homes were calculated to seize firearms and assets and to arrest adult males. The American Consulate in Stuttgart was flooded with Jews begging for visas: “Men in whose homes old, rusty revolvers had been found during the last few days cried aloud that they did not dare ever again return to their places of residence or business. In fact, it was a mass of seething, panic-stricken humanity.”4
        Himmler, head of the Nazi terror police, would become an architect of the Holocaust, which consumed six million Jews. It was self evident that the Jews must be disarmed before the extermination could begin.

        Finding out which Jews had firearms was not too difficult. The liberal Weimar Republic passed a Firearm Law in 1928 requiring extensive police records on gun owners. Hitler signed a further gun control law in early 1938.

        Abortion is murder. What a sick society.

      • Bill

        Bob,
        One of my life mentors is a concentration camp survivor, and that is exactly what happened. He is still alive and he is armed

      • Dennis48e

        “So, eddie, do you suppose releasing the whereabouts of handgun permit holders was a responsible act? ”

        Of course he does Sheepdog. Despite his occasional remark to the contrary eddie is very anti-gun. I have never seen eddie oppose any new proposal to restrict gun rights and have never seen him support any proposal that relaxes them.

      • http://personallibertydigest kim sylvest

        The problem is not the problem here, because the overwhelming majority of gun owners are law abiding. You’re making our point for us! You say this newspaper should arm itself for protection, well that is a conservative principle. Not to mention the right to bear arms is a constitutional RIGHT! You also make a lot of baseless accusations about us “right wingers” wanting to kill anyone who opposes our conservative beliefs. Just because you say it does not make it true. We on the right are the ones who believe in free speech! Although we do not agree with liberals, we do recognize their right to their beliefs and to be able to express those beliefs. It is liberals like yourself who actually harbor hate and resentment and desire to silence your opposition. Eddie, you have the right to your beliefs, but so do we! Taking guns from law abiding gun owners is not going to solve the problem of gun violence in this country. The root cause must be addressed in order to cure this problem. Mental illness and hate are the root causes of this violence! The solution to mental illness and hate are not disarming law abiding gun owners. Spirituality is!

      • larry ryan

        The elite polititians and elite Hollywood liberals, all anti-gun, have armed bodyguards and are protected 24/7 by same. The liberal rags ALL have armed guards. Same for all broadcast media. Hypocrites.

      • Dennis48e

        “You also make a lot of baseless accusations about us “right wingers” wanting to kill anyone who opposes our conservative beliefs.”

        Kim, it is called projection. in other words eddie is projection his own thoughts and desires onto those who speak against him.

      • Don

        Eddie I wish that this world was such that all of us could leave our doors unlocked 24/7. It isn’t though is it.By your comment. I am not sure if you are for or against guns. You condemn people for threatening someone, then say that those threatened have the right to hire someone to protect them. So which is it, you for or against gun owner ship? If I lose the right to own a fire arm of any type what are you willing to lose because someone thinks you do not need it or deserve it. You have not broken the law, you have not threatened anyone and you have not hurt anyone. But you will lose some thing just because a radical, repeat radical, dose something with what you have. Now the innocent get punished since non-thinking idoits believe that no one should have what ever it is.

      • Bob

        Eddie is a worm hope he’s the first to be marched into a FEMA camp crying and whimpering like a defenseless lefty.

      • eddie47d

        Dennis and Sheepdog: You ought to visit more often and get your facts straight for 3 days ago I said “I don’t think its right that the newspaper released those names”. So I’m hardly in support in what they did.

      • eddie47d

        Nice report Bob and a good one but the Nazi’s were far closer to right wing ideology than left wing. They were savages no matter which way you look at them for they also went after union workers,gays Jehovah Witnesses and Catholics besides the Jews.

        A Constitutionally PROTECTED Right. The right itself comes from our Creator. The Constitution is a contract between We The People and government agents to PROTECT that right and many others.

      • eddie47d

        Kim: I read all the comments before I posted (8:40) and also responded to the comments that have been posted all week. I think I have my facts straight and my opinion is based on what I hear around here. If they don’t want the labels (right wing) then they shouldn’t be shouting so loud those ugly views of what they would do and what they have done. .

      • eddie47d

        Don: Because there is two sides to the gun issue so who says you have to be “for or against”. You won’t box me into that rigid world of pro gun or anti gun for I do support the 2nd Amendment. I believe every person on the face of this earth has a right to defend themselves against any aggressive behavior. In the USA we can defend ourselves and the military will defend this nation. I don’t like our loose and reckless gun laws which floods the market with unneeded weapons. I will support restrictions on those weapons of mass killings.

        this is going to be another government set up just like the shooting at the sandy hook school.
        now, things like this makes it easier for the government to send in kill crazed unsubs to do the dirty work and then this makes it more easier for gun grabbers to want to take our guns. they are going to have one hell of a fight on their hands.

      • johnny

        Not hard to tell the good gun owners from the badguys.WE DON’T HAVE ARREST AND CONVICTION RECORDS A MILE LONG,WE ARE BACKGROUND CHECKED EVERY GUN PURCHASE.We are the vast vast majority of gun owners who kill and capture more felons than the police do.

      • JC

        Another great example of the “Liberal’s Compassion” towards their fellow Americans:

        It isn’t entirely true that, as Lord Acton said, “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” It’s often the case that power simply allows people the luxury of lowering façades and showing their true colors.

        A good example is the recent behavior of many on the Left. Commentator Donald Kaul just wrote that he had no problem with guns being pried from their owners’ “cold, dead hands” and that Republican leaders should be dragged around a parking lot with a pick-up truck. A European college professor recommended the execution of “Climate Change Deniers” and the Pope. Closer to home, an American academic called for NRA president Wayne LaPierre’s “head on a stick” in some profanity laden tweets. And then there was voice of moderation Harry Belafonte; he didn’t ask for blood — only that Barack Obama arrest political opponents (prompting me to spoof a song in his honor).

      • Vicki

        eddie47d demonstrates the ability to hold 2 incompatible opinions at the same time by saying:
        “…I do support the 2nd Amendment. I believe every person on the face of this earth has a right to defend themselves against any aggressive behavior.”

        “I don’t like our loose and reckless gun laws which floods the market with unneeded weapons. I will support restrictions on those weapons of mass killings.”

        You also notice that though eddie47d claims to support the right to defend against ANY aggressive behavior he openly denies you the right to keep and bear the best tools for that job.

        I do appreciate eddie putting those diametrically opposed views in the same post so that I can highlight them easily. Thank you eddie.

      • http://yahoo Louis

        eddie47d, the des moine register (a liberal newspaper) published a column by Mr. Kaul calling for the NRA being classified a terrorist organization and that all the staff and member of the NRA to be dealt with as terrorist. WHAT ABOUT THAT!!

      • Don

        64,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday.

      • Archer

        Being in Law Enforcement for over 10 years, I can’t help but think….. Isn’t releasing the names of all the legal gun owners kind of like making up a shopping list for criminals? Lets see…….. Which house should I rob tonight???? Which house is closest to me? I need another gun. BUT I could be wrong, maybe criminals will not see the list. Well, that’s just my thought.

      • nabiru

        Hey,Edi. You should waive your Second Amendment rights. But if you do it than you will loose the First and all others too. Be careful you might have to shut the f.. up.

      • Vicki

        Don says:
        “64,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday.”

        And I would put money on a bet that the vast majority of them have NEVER killed anyone in their entire life.

      • S Prang

        Hey dude, if the loony lefties wouldn’t spill their rotten guts, they would have no problem with anybody.

    • Bruce

      the problem is simple, ALL humans harbor evil.
      If we were not surrounded by others who are also part evil, then we could rule ourselves.
      However we are not pure good, so there will always be those among us that are more evil that the rest.
      I do think it very ironic that the gun haters just hired “GUNS” to protect themselves.
      O how ironic!.
      Don’t they know that pure evil exists within the steel of guns?
      They (liberals) know they have no evil in them, so, they figure, the evil must be in the metal of the gun itself!?.
      Would it not also be ironic if one of those gun toting security guards saved the life of someone or many someones, who worked at the paper?
      Will the paper now please post the names of everyone not posted in the first posting as gun owners?
      The CROOKS SURE HOPE SO.
      Got a list and I’m checking it twice…..
      gonna find out who is armed or not, and make a visiting list.
      Gotta love the irony.

    • http://www.facebook.com/benjamin.fox.98892 Benjamin Fox

      Your right my friend, D Feinstein has a concealled carry permit but, she doesn’t want us to have one? Biden also owns guns but once said he would never give them up. These people want to disarm us so they can better control us, it’s that simple. The Paper printed out what could be said to be a blog for crooks to know where to steal another gun. Then they arm themselves. Seems we learned nothing from history, Hitler did the same thing and now our Hitlers are doing it again. Go figure?

  • Harold Olsen

    Why are they hiring armed guards? I thought they hated guns. Oh, I get it. We can’t have guns, but they can.

    • j.l. hertz

      Amazing ain’t it

    • Sheepdog on patrol

      They now need protection because of their stupidity. Typical Liberals. They act without thinking about the consequences of their actions. The fact that those people were required to register their handguns in the first place is outrageous and an assault of the highest order on their second amendment rights. Why are the people of New York allowing politicians to dictate this kind of tyranny to them? Why haven’t these people risen up against those politicians? Now, these people are placed in peril by those who profess to be protecting the populace. This is total BS.

      • WhiteFalcon

        You are correct. You have to understand that the politics of New York State is controlled by New York City. Most people that live outside New York City would just as soon New York City would fall into the ocean so they could be rid of them. NYC absorbs all the resources from the whole state and therfore it screws everyone else. All their state tax money winds up in NYC.

      • eddie47d

        White Falcon. New York has a population of 19.465 million and NYC is 8.245 million. They have the majority of population so naturally the money flows in that direction. That is the same in any state. What is the production value of NYC vs the rest of the state and you should have your answer.

      • eddie47d

        Sheepdog: What is outrageous is the old crime rate that NYC WAS plagued with. There are now restrictions but the murder rate is also way down. What is more important to you your gun or all the dead bodies they use to have? Beside back then and still is that way almost all illegal weapons found in NYC comes from the Carolina’s . Those are the gun runners so many like to deny are out there so shouldn’t NYC sue those other states for peddling crime? As another point Connecticut has some of the largest gun manufacturers in the US yet few of those guns ever enter NYC. Must be a Southern strategy to pour those unwanted guns into other areas.

    • Steve E

      That’s what you call “Pure Hypocrisy”. You can look at the Liberals and see all the Seven Deadly Sins.

      • eddie47d

        You are really full of it Steve E for Conservatives indulge in all those sins too! I reckon each side could have at least half labeled against them!

  • JimH

    Doesn’t the newspaper understand that all they need to do is declare their office a ” gun free zone”?
    Problem solved.
    Live up to your principles,Journal News.

    • “Homer”

      GUN FREE zone..lets see…IF I were a criminal, and I wanted to KNOW if there were or were not guns present, and I saw a GUN FREE zone, that would tell me there were no guns so……I would not have to worry about anyone resisting! GUNS do NOT Kill people anymore than lead pencils make mistakes. Ronald reagan had it right…peace thru strenght! That brought the iron curtain down and the soviet union also! NO nation will TRY TO TAKE OVER ANOTHER THEY KNOW IS STRONGER THAN THEY! It is fact that Japan did not invade the U.S. in WW2 due to the fact that they knew that and the emporer knew that behind every bush would be a gun of some sort! he was right!

      • JimH

        Hi “Homer”, I was just using sarcasm to point out the newspaper’s hipocracy.
        If they truely believed “gunfree zones” worked,there would be no need for “armed” guards.
        They said there were “angery phone calls and E-mails. I doubt that any E-mails made threats.( to easy for police to trace) Even phone calls, I doubt contained many threats.
        I think the paper wanted the public to believe that “gun owners” are inherently violent and they needed to protect themselves. It’s all a ruse to further their anti-gun agenda.
        I doubt they needed guards, that there was no threat.

      • eddie47d

        Being a little naive there yourself Jim H? Newspaper journalists are threatened all the time. Talk show hosts are threatened all the time and we had one killed out here in Denver by a group of neo-nazis back in the mid-80′s. It may be part of the job I reckon but to say it doesn’t happen just isn’t so. I bet the Washington Post,FOX News,MSNBC and so forth have armed guards within their buildings. Then Harold Olsen says “We can’t have guns but they can”. That’s the problem with the Harold’s because he has a right to his gun or self protection but continually says he doesn’t. Believe it or not even Liberals believe in the right to protect ones self and would do so. Its the means they have questions about and whether certain types of weapons are even necessary.

      • JimH

        Hi eddie, Are you sure the paper recieved threats or are you doing a little speculation on your own?
        Were the guards the paper hired, some of the people who their names and adresses posted.(just wondering)
        Harold does have the right to protect himself(for now), but if the paper has their way he won’t for long. He is just pointing out the hipocracy.
        I guess they would be OK with Harold “hiring” an armed guard, just as long a Harold doesn’t have a gun.
        I have nothing against the newspaper protecting itself, I wish they would return the favor.

      • Bill

        Homer,
        Where is Reagan when we need him. He was the last true leader that wanted to protect our free market capitalism.

        Let me look in my crystal ball, Hmm… I predict the progressives on this site countering with trash talking about Reagan. Come on Flashy, show us how stupid you are again

        Is that war on (some) guns anything like your war on (some) drugs?

        Really keeps the prohibited drugs out of the hands of the people that want them. Not.

        Now as to the type of weapon necessary I would ask you if you were facing a gang of hundreds (see violent flash mobs in youtube) interested in having you for their next entertainment, which of these tools would you like to have. For fun we will allow you to be carrying not 1 but 2 policemen and they can have the same tool you have chosen. You can even put the policemen down during the confrontation. Btw half of the gang have guns.

        1. Base ball bat
        2. Mace
        3. 6 shooter + extra ammo.
        4. semi-auto handgun with 17 round magazine + 4 spares
        5. S.A.W.
        6. AR-15 with 30 round magazine + 4 spares
        7. M16 with 30 round magazine + 4 spares
        8. Knife. Large
        9. Knife. Pocket
        10. Sword.
        11. Police issue Tazer.
        12. StunGun
        13. Thompson Sub Machine Gun.

        Don’t be so ignorant Vickie nothing but your conjecture! If a flash mob pops up to do violence they got you before you could reach for anything. Now I suppose you want to demonize flash mobs when most are nothing more than singing circles or musical feats. When it come to gangs having weapons you know as well as I do that there are enhanced prison sentences for that. So take your anything goes crap and take a hike for I ain’t buying!

        eddie47d tries to avoid the question by writing:

        Ad hominem attack.

        -eddie47d: “If a flash mob pops up to do violence they got you before you could reach for anything.”

        To (proximately) quote eddie47d “That’s nothing but your conjecture!”

        -eddie47d demonstrates the art of not reading by saying:
        “Now I suppose you want to demonize flash mobs when most are nothing more than singing circles or musical feats.”

        Flash mobs? I was talking about a gang of hundreds of people who were planning on using you for their entertainment, not entertain you.

        The astute reader will have noticed a 2nd adjective before the word “mob” in my statements that eddie conveniently forgot. He does know the word because he used the noun form of the word in the previous sentence.

        -eddie47d: “When it come to gangs having weapons you know as well as I do that there are enhanced prison sentences for that.”

        And this has gangs trembling in abject fear. Not.

        -eddie47d: “So take your anything goes crap and take a hike for I ain’t buying!”

        Ad hominem

        When presented with a scenario to help answer the question about whether certain types of weapons are even necessary eddie47d demonstrates why there is no possible discussion with him when he writes on January 3, 2013 at 3:42 pm: “…So take your anything goes crap and take a hike for I ain’t buying!”

        He did not discuss or show why the scenario was invalid. He just talked about “flash mobs” and rejected the scenario.

  • Sue B

    Typical of the liberal progressive democrats. For instance, Diane Fienstien, (D-Calif.) has her concealed pistol license and admits freely that she has carried on the streets of San Francisco. She is also spearheading the passage of stricter gun laws for us “ordinary” law abiding citizens. Apparently progressives make the laws for us to follow but they don’t have to follow them if it’s not in their very best interest. I’m sure the Journal News feels they can justify their actions but would crucify us for the same.

  • “Homer”

    NOW that is hypocritical: So too does Daine Fienstein, she carries a piece, and yet she hates guns! Why won’t this woman and these gun haters at least be honest…they hate the populace having guns! they have no control if we have guns….so to get control they need our guns gone, so they are the ONLY ones w/guns! IF I had a gun, it should be none of the establishemnts business especially when it is provided in the constitution and IF i did have a gun, I’d not surrender it to anyone trying to kill me! YOU never see or hear of anyone ever getting killed at a shooting range and NO one ever tries to take over anyone there either…wonder why? Every man, woman and child ought to have, possess or at least know how to fire and use a pistol or rifle etc….The fear of ones life keeps people safer! NO ONE is guaranteed safety from man..so be always ready…lock and load!!

      Feinstein must not know any holocaust survivors? She is jewish isn’t she?

      “Homer” says:
      “NOW that is hypocritical: So too does Daine Fienstein, she carries a piece, and yet she hates guns! ”

      As you noticed she does not hate guns or she would not have one. She hates her servants having guns.

      There’s a difference in hating guns and hating the abuse and suffering that guns cause. Something you are blind to! Go back to your spaghetti western fantasies and false heroics! Gun owners aren’t the only constituents of Feinstein’s.

        Feinstein hates the damage that guns cause?Then she should fastly deep six her damage causing gun cause it causes damage,doesn’t it,well doesn’t it?– gets up at night and murders innocents,then comes home and sneaks back in her purse.

        Hating the (imaginary) abuse (supposedly) caused by inanimate objects is not overly insightful.

        -edde47d: “Go back to your spaghetti western fantasies and false heroics!”

        Amusing but irrelevant ad hominem.

        -eddie47d: “Gun owners aren’t the only constituents of Feinstein’s.”

        None of Feinstein’s constituents are gun owners. She is from California. A gun free zone. :)

    Sounds as if this is a good place to begin “The shot heard round the world!” Liberals will learn to late that for every action there is a reaction……

  • Chris

    So sad that liberals with their jaded intellect always have to learn the hard way. Reminds me of little kids who get hurt when they dont listen to their parents and rush out and do things their own way, only to find out their parents were right. In this case the parents would be the writers of the Constitution.

  • “Homer”

    SOOOOO the truth is OUT: Guns really do send a message to those who would harm people..I am armed so don’t mess w/me! Seems the only ones who think they should be armed are those who seek to control us! Stalin, Hitler, Moa se Tong, Castro, Kamer Rouge etc etc See the Book entitled “Death by Gun control” by Aaron Zelman and Richard W. stevens This is a conprhensive look at Gun Control in the WORLD and all its outcomes for any nation that accepted this fallicy of doctrines!!

    Armed guards from ‘New York City based RGA’. I wonder how they have gotten around New York Citie’s Sullivan Law. A crony law that puts extreme restrictions on gun possession. Someone needs to ask Bloomberg about it.

    It gets better. Some other website published a map of where all the Journal managers, editors and full-time staff live, including phone numbers. All public record, as required by law. Payback’s a bitch.

        The Blaze, NewsMax, and MSNBC have all had articles about the posting of the newspaper staff names as well as other news sources.

    Typical book trained morons spouting BS on things they know nothing about. Why does all socialist progressives think a law and BS tgeories will stop killings. A more effective weapon is a mouse trap and a shot gun shell, just like a sniper one shot one kill. When Fienstein wants to stop multi shot magazines, the shulb sow had better be drivenaround in a 10 horse powered go cart, instead of a 400 horse powered Government Motors Junk Wagon. Just more socialist/communist BS modeled after the Russian mindset.

  • Bill

    Bill Clinton suggested that we have armed guards in schools. But when the NRA suggests the same thing, the progressives have a hissy fit. Their real morivation is not to protect the kids, it is to take away your right to defend yourselfs, just like Hitler, Stalin and Mao

    As the progressives continue to purposely destroy the economy, crime will go up and you need the right to defend yourself more than ever

    • Maddog66

      Bill, you hit the nail on the head, as the economy craters, crime will increase, therefore making one own a gun even more important. What a cycle we are in!

  • Colonel[P] Charles Von Minoskovitch

    I think the dim witted, anti gun spewing liberals in this newspaper[journalistic junk]should have had a better idea when hiring protection, hire a protection agency that arms their guards with cross bows, which are effective at close range,are silent,and the arrows cost very little, since they are probaly made in China. Also, blood splatter is kept at a minimum, which reduces cleanup time and complies with some governmental health regulation in regard to airborne blood pathogens. See, easy fix, and NO GUNS.

  • Bobby99

    The Journal News reporter who wrote the article – Dwight R Worley owns a Smith and Wesson 687 ( .357 Magnum) and has had a residency permit in NY City since 2011- @ faced Hypocrite and dissin Mayor Bloomy pants all at the same time.

  • Vicki

    That newspaper is making the wrong choice. They just need to declare their building a “Gun-Free Zone”. Here’s a video on how to do it.

    Vicki, that video was almost as funny as eddie’s comments.

    HYPOCRITES!

  • APN

    Fact is, the first VERY illegal offense against the right to keep and bear arms is the government requiring WE CITIZENS to have a permit to own one. I think the 2nd amendment already CLEARLY gives us that right. Does it not!?!?!? In other words, we already have a permit to OWN a damn gun! It’s called the 2nd AMENDMENT!

    How convenient it is now that we have BAD UNCONSTITUTIONAL LEGISLATION that gives some progressive GOD hating American Hating puke News Paper the right to publish the names of WE LEGAL CITIZENS who own a gun.

    If not for the the VERY UNCONSTITUTIONAL permit laws, well, the little commie-progressive-pukes wouldn’t have any names to publish, correct? In fact, if they did, then they would find themselves in a MASSIVE lawsuit.

    The permit laws need to be challenged and then abolished so WE LAW ABIDING CITIZENS never find ourselves in a situation like this one again! And yes, the 2nd AMENDMENT does in fact TRUMP any local or state law in the Union.

    I warned all my friends about running out to obtain a right to carry permit because the day would come that the progressive-GOD hating commie THUGS will in fact use it against them.

    This whole thing reminds me of Hitler’s Germany. History repeating itself without a doubt.

    Bottom line, when you ELECT CHILDISH EMOTIONAL PROGRESSIVE FOOLS and put them in POWER, well folks, this is what you get! Socialist Daycare 101! i.e.; Hitler’s Germany!
