Newspaper That Put Up List of Gun Owners Refuses to Become Gun-Free Zone

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


The Journal News decided to put up a list of licensed gun owners, but as James O’Keefe found, its own staffers don’t seem to be inclined to turn their homes into gun free zones and some of its bigwigs are even protected by armed guards.

O’Keefe continued, “It’s amazing to see members of our media equivocate and contradict their spoken and written words when faced with the dilemma to declare their own homes as Gun Free. Surprisingly, we found that the homes of the very New York paper that was willing to put the lives and fortunes of gun owners at risk by publishing their names and addresses, were also the most heavily armed and protected. The hypocrisy of New York’s Journal News is beyond words.”

Gun control is about power. Those who want gun control want to take away power from others while keeping it for themselves.

    what a pack of elitist hypocrites, just like DiFi.

    Serves them right. The Journal News decided to play with live ammo, so besides shooting themselves in the foot, they got a tad more than they bargained for.

    Best example of the hypocracy of the Left. I say i care about you but in reality my words are empty and i just say the right things to get (re) elected, get good public relations, etc. Shameless bastards every one of them.

    Two words: soft targets.

    The left is insane and will consume itself. The lawyers will bankrupt the paper, the writers, and the editors once the homeowners sue.

    "Gun control is about power. Those who want gun control want to take away power from others while keeping it for themselves."

    This is a big clue about anything they talk about while using terms like "fairness" and "social justice." It's all about power. Marx is dead and nobody really believes his insane rants.
