Anti-Gun Newspaper that Outed Gun Owners Forced to Hire Armed Guards

There are few sure things in life, except that the sun must rise and set, cats must yowl when the moon is full and gun controllers must condemn guns and then hide behind them.

The crybabies at the The Journal News, after making public the names and locations of legal gun owners, many of them active or former law enforcement personnel, panicked at all the criticism and decided to turn to the gun.

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.

According to police reports on public record, Journal News Rockland Editor Caryn A. McBride was alarmed by the volume of “negative correspondence,” namely an avalanche of phone calls and emails to the Journal News office, following the newspaper’s publishing of a map of all pistol permit holders in Rockland and Westchester.

Poor dears. Were there any actual death threats? Nope.

McBride had filed at least two reports with the Clarkstown Police Department due to perceived threats. However, the police did not find the communications in question actually threatening.

So Caryn McBride, after exposing legal gun owners to danger, panicked, even though the police saw no problem, and decided to outsource the gun ownership thing to… hired guns.

But the right to defend yourself with a firearm should, according to the Journal News and Caryn McBride, be limited to those who can afford to hire armed guards.

Is that what the Founders had in mind? Is that how a fair and just society runs? I don’t think so.

UPDATE: Meanwhile the Journal News’ Jihad against gun owners ran into a roadblock. An ethical government official.

Putnam County Clerk Dennis Sant said he would defy a request for information about pistol permit holders from the White Plains, New York-based Journal News, which has come under criticism for publishing thousands of such identities already.

“There is the rule of law, and there is right and wrong and the Journal News is clearly wrong,” Sant said in a statement. “I could not live with myself if one Putnam pistol permit holder was put in harm’s way, for the sole purpose of selling newspapers.”

    The Progressives are going to push gun owners too far and they won't like the results.

      Double Amen!

    They created their own hostile environment. The smart-azz folks at Journal News have nobody to blame but themselves.

    Alas, the following commentary comes into sharp focus –

    Imagine how difficult it would have been for the Journal News to hire armed guards to protect their fuzzy little selves from some fantasized mayhem if they had the gun control laws they claim to want.

    No doubt Rosie O'Donnell will applaud their actions in disclosing the names.

    What's the name and address of the armed guard service?

    • CatK

      Exactly. Someone please publish the names and home addresses of each of the armed guards! Hey, good for the goose, good for the gander

      • Dracoprimus

        No, don't do that to the guards, they are just regular people doing the job they are hired to do. If you want to claim turnabout is fair play, publish the public record information of the newspapers editorial staff. Publishing Caryn McBride's personal info would have far of an impact than posting the personal info of the security guards.

    Caryn McBride , when will you "Disarm Citizens" avocates learn that "Insanity" comes with a price .
    The NRA should print your name ,address and phone number on a bilboard to show you up as the ultimate hypocrite. Every armed citizen you outed should sue you personally. Just who do you think you are ?
    That is the problem with you Liberals when your insanity begets consequences you turn to conservatives
    (sane people ) to save you .

    Although it's legal what this newspaper has done , it should be illegal .This info should be available on a need to know basis . What if the paper published names and addresses of all Porsche 911 owners, this way the car thieves wouldn't have to work so hard finding them ? Or how about all registered burgalr alarmed houses ?? While we're at it a list of ALL convicted felons , it's public record .
    This newsrag should be boycotted and put out of buisiness .

  • slider 96

    P.S. This same newspaper is now demanding the names and addresses of pistol permit holders in Putnam County . So far the Putnam County Clerk HAS REFUSED to give such information .

    This would be really comical if it wasn't for all of the tragic fatalities from violent crimes in which guns were "TOOLS". I say that because of the fact that that's all they were, "TOOLS".

    What I find tragically ironic, is that the people who are pointing the fingers, as usual, are the very people who are primarily responsible for creating an environment where we have mass shootings. The overall moral climate of this country has been a grave concern for quite some time. The people who have voiced this concern are partly the blame too because they haven't spoke loudly enough and when they should have when it was just a little problem. Shamefully, I fit in the that category too. When we have a Godless society or a society who have no respect for human life not to mention themselves, this is what we wind up with and the people who are doing all of the name calling "gun nut, klansmen, log Cabin Conservative (as if that is an insult)…etc) are the very ones that were behind legalized abortion, same sex marriage, protesting when someone is rightfully executed for a crime, protests against prayer in school…etc. (cont'd)

    This nation no longer fears reprecussions from mass murders or shootings because they are now being taught that that their is no God and know that our justice system has pretty much kowtowed to the liberal agenda of pinning the "victimhood" tab on the villain and the "villain" tab on the victims or people who demand justice. I keep hearing that more stringent laws and stiffer penalities (death penalty) are not the answer and after further observing this chaotic situation, I now would have to agree. The laws aren't the problem, this nation's willingness or resolve to enforce them is. I remember reading about a time where if someone pulled a stunt like the one in Connecticut, there was no doubt in your mind where he/she was going to wind up. You usually saw them dangling from the end of a long rope assuming they even he made it that far. More than likely, during the time when everyone was carrying, someone would have shot him before he got to victim 2 or 3 and if that didn't kill them the impending judgement from our justice system would certainly have. There was no doubt or argument about it. Now, it's "mommy and daddy treated me unfairly", "I was drunk", "I was insane (eventhough they thought out these elaborate schemes to escape or get away with it). (cont'd)

    What we are seeing really shouldn't be all that shocking, ladies and gentlemen. Our nation, our supposed "nation under God" which at one time was probably true, (I don't know what it's under nowaday's but it certainly is not God) justified killing the unborn and to ease their consciences a little they called it a "fetus". Well, you know, baby implies that it's human and have rights however we went along with it and justified it. It had nothing to do with "women's rights" it had nothing to do with "rape", "incest"….etc, these were just tools used to sell it. None of these are in the norm for those who requested it. It was souly done and justified so that those who wanted to, could get rid of the burdensome responsiblity of being RESPONSIBLE and taking care of what you helped bring into the world. Ask yourself this; If a mass murderer was prooven guilty of killing 50,000,000, was allowed the oppurtunity to kill 27 more, would it shock you if he did?

  • RoguePatriot6

    This country legalized murder in Roe vs Wade. It wasn't about "women's rights", "incest", "rape" these were just some cases out of the norm that was used to sell the idea. It was all about our societies willingness to get rid of the burdensome responsibility of being "RESPONSIBLE" and taking care of what we helped bring into the world. Since then we have killed 50,000,00. Now ask yourself this; If you knew of a mass murderer that was guilty of killing 50,000,000 would you be surprised if he went and killed 27 more if ever he was allowed the chance to do it?

    Frontpage is becoming a bit ridiculous with the "your comment must be approved by the site admins before it will appear publicly". You can't even post 3 things and you'll get the warning.

  • RedWhiteAndJew

    It's the pattern which plays itself out, time and time again. The anti-gun-nuts seek to deny the great unwashed from the means to defend themselves, then surround themselves with security…armed with guns.

    The UN is guarded by security armed with really nifty H&K machine guns. This is the same cesspool which celebrates disarmament of commoners.

    300 million legal firearms killed No one today.

    O.K Boys , we got the locations of all the armed houses on this block , but these houses here and here and here are all unprotected – we hit em tonight .

    • Vermont Guy

      Uh, Chief, dems just the pistols, we got no idea where the shotguns are.

    • RoguePatriot6

      So, the fact that we live in a society that could kill 50,000,000, who posed no threat at all, and have no problem with it, is no indicator at all of the lack of regard that we have for life?

      Pretty far stretch from irrellevant.

        looks like the comment got scrubbed :(

        • RoguePatriot6

          Not really, I said pretty much the same thing in the one that got scrubbed in an earlier post. I kept trying to post this got the "administrator must review message". I don't know what it was about the post that the administrator didn't like it was almost exactly the same in the post that I did 17 hours ago.
