If the Journal News Were on the Side of the Good Guys

What if Gannett’s maleficent Journal News tried to do something constructive for a change? Instead of attempting to intimidate law-abiding gun owners with interactive maps that reveal their names and addresses, they might publish a map like this:

Criminal-Gun-Owners-Map

Few crimes are committed with legally acquired firearms, which are far more likely to be used to prevent crimes. The Democrat–media complex can’t help but know this. Liberals’ intentions in going into overdrive to exploit Sandy Hook are not benevolent.

    Haha! I love it here! :-D

    Just had a conversation with a conservative Christian who was taken in by the lefts endless anti-gun screed. She was convinced AR-15′s were automatic weapons that could spray thousands of rounds. She was SO sure that if we “just got these guns out of the hands of people” things would be better.

    The lesson? Conservatives and Christians had better learn to use the pen as well as the sword. I know that the macho-wanna-be’s here will think I’m a wimp, but it’s ideas BACKED UP by force that win the day, not a blow-hard with a gun…and we all know that a real man doesn’t need to keep advertising how big (or how many) guns he has, now don’t we?

    Journal Noise’s map gets A+ by career criminals as a great tool for their trade. These authors are likely up for a Pulitzer Prize from their state media comrades.

    “That was the most asinine article I’ve ever seen,” said Walter T. Shaw, 65, a former burglar and jewel thief who the FBI blames for more than 3,000 break-ins that netted some $70 million in the 1960s and 1970s. “Having a list of who has a gun is like gold – why rob that house when you can hit the one next door, where there are no guns?

    Frank Abagnale, who was portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio in the 2002 film “Catch Me if You Can,” and is perhaps the most famous reformed thief to ever earn a legitimate living by offering the public insight into the criminal mind, called the newspaper’s actions “reprehensible.”

    anon, that would be a bad idea. She has a pistol permit, AND armed guards.

    In other words, she has the protection that she would deny the rest of us.

    Just wait till someone gets robbed and they sue gannett for each robbery… then wait till someone gets robbed, and uses the gun in a crime… then sue for the wrongful death.

    in fact, they may not realize it, but they are now partly liable for almost any robbery of any of those addresses in which the gun is taken!!!!

    and they would also be liable if a cop gets killed when a perp tracks them down through this.

    the liability issues are huge…
    which is why i can bet that they never talked to their lawyers and asked, if something happens because we do this, how liable are we?

    well… i will bet that no only are they liable to some degree, but perpetually so until each person sells their residence and moves to a new one where the gun registration is not known.

    ie. even years from now, some person can call up that and then see and bet that the person listed has no moved so guns are still there.

    so really, they have 20 years of serious potential liability and unless privately owned, their stock holders and such would not be happy to know they just did THAT to themselves with their investments..

    no one is looking at this tack yet…

    but they will, as someone is going to do something given the numbers involved…

  • Artfldgr

    i wonder if they can be charged with aiding and abetting?

  • Artfldgr

    oh… and if you think they are not liable.. just remember, they will HAVE to defend every civil case that claims it… as each civil case is separate and there is no way for gannette to get them all off their back the way all of them can join in a class action suit.

    the legal costs of just the defense would be high
    and there is a good chance of any victim getting pro bono as the point of law is interesting and any great lawyer may decide that making new law by testing this would be a challenge and a way to make their mark.

    All of this gun control talk by these libs is, in a sense, backfiring in their faces. The country is being flooded with guns and ammo now. Have you seen the Out of Stock/No Back orders?

    Putnam County, NY refuses to give gun owner info to paper.

    A county clerk has refused to release names and addresses of residents with pistol permits.

    Connecticut lawmaker wants names of gun owners to be made public

    Lawmakers in Connecticut – still stunned from the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting – are moving forward with legislation that could make public the names and addresses of 170,000 handgun permit holders in the state.
    The measure, introduced by state Rep. Stephen Dargan, is the latest effort to clamp down on guns in Connecticut. If passed, the bill would reverse a 20-year decision by state lawmakers to keep the personal information confidential. The legislation would make the information fair game under the state’s Freedom of Information Act.

    Didn’t I just see this idea… on a MOONBATTERY THREAD?

    I don’t think it’s a stretch to point out that there are so many illegal guns on the south and west sides of Chicago to render magnetic compasses unusable.

    There is only one law I can think of that would change the number of illegal guns in these areas: Use of a firearm in the commission of a felony is punishable by death within 30 days, without appeal. Nothing else would have any impact.

    I would personally support such a law, because it places responsibility in the right place: on the criminal.

    Not thinking very well there bobdog are you? They would turn your idea around to start executing law abiding citizens that used their legal weapons in defense of their property, their family and their own lives.

    Seems to me that George Zimmerman is still rotting in jail for committing a “crime” with his legally-owned handgun.

    __________

    BTW, this is another good reason to oppose laws that require a permit to purchase a handgun or any other gun. One can never trust the government with what should be none of their business.

    One last thought. I’ve got a neighbor. Nice guy who owns a lot of guns. He has started his own “gun lending” program.

    He showed up at my home one day, handed me a lovely shotgun with a pistol grop, fiber-optic sight, and a tactical light mounted under the barrel. Told me to treat the gun like my own; take it shooting, enjoy it. Someday he may need to borrow that gun back, but in the meantime, I’ve got another shotgun, he has another better armed neighbor, and there is no paper trail telling the gun grabbers where to look next.

    In fact, I was inspired to lend out a rifle last year.
