Edit to add 1/8/13- Article NRA is not just about Guns it is about our FREEDOMS!
The newspaper in N.Y. that does not believe in our Freedoms and Rights to the 2nd amendment and decided to put thousands of legal gun owners at risk has done more damage now.
I had written about how the media and government have become the big bullies in intimidating those citizens who utilize their 2nd amendment rights.
The Journal News in N.Y. put an interactive map online of gun owners in various counties. Since then one county (Putnam) has refused to give them the gun owners information and the newspaper has hired armed guards due to the backlash they have received.
You have to wonder if those armed guards they have hired, are listed on their interactive maps or if they have selectively omitted their names and addresses as gun owners.
The journal, a Gannet owned newspaper has attempted along with the government to make gun owners considered as bad as pedophiles and murders. It is a concentrated effort to intimidate all who believe in the Freedoms and Rights of the 2nd amendment and try and shame them.
Their little stunt has now put current and retired law enforcement at risk.
Inmates in jails and prisons are now intimidating the guards and law enforcement telling them they know where they live.
Imagine all those who have testified against real murders and convicts and how their family and own lives are at risk now.
The Journal will have blood on their hands if anything happens to law abiding citizens, especially if they are involved in law enforcement and a convict commits a "revenge" act against them.
Portion from article:
Law enforcement officials from a New York region where a local paper published a map identifying gun owners say prisoners are using the information to intimidate guards.
Rockland County Sheriff Louis Falco, who spoke at a news conference flanked by other county officials, said the Journal News' decision to post an online map of names and addresses of handgun owners Dec. 23 has put law enforcement officers in danger.
"They have inmates coming up to them and telling them exactly where they live.
The Journal is standing by their maps and are trying to do more. The question is how many lives are they going to be responsible for?
We can not be intimidated out of our 2nd amendment right to Bear Arms!
