    The Journal News is Armed and Dangerous - West Nyack, NY

    The Journal News caused an international stir when they released an interactive map of pistol permit holders names and addresses in Rockland and Westchester counties last Sunday, December 23. The editors have said they believe knowing where guns are is in the public’s government's interest.The newspaper has also taken a strident editorial position in favor of strict gun control.

    What the paper wanted to state.
    "I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it." - Thomas Jefferson.

    "Better that ten guilty persons escape, than that one innocent suffer" - English jurist William Blackstone.
    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    Are you alleging, Sir, that I would post a dis-functional link? I'm SHOCKED I tell you.....SHOCKED! (attempting to use my best Claude Rains voice from Casablanca)

    Here is the linkit works for me.

    [update---Putnam County officials have since announced their intention to not comply with the Journal News' request for the names and addresses of pistol permit holders]

    What a good idea. I have always believed that "concealed" means "concealed". It does not work if you let everyone know you are "concealed".
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington

    good read, I'm all for making permit-holders' records NOT available to the public

    Anti-gun newspaper hires armed guards for protection

    "In the ultimate irony, the paper has hired private gun-toting guards to protect its West Nyack headquarters after its name-and-shame campaign drew massive criticism."

    Edit: Sorry for posting similar link... I commented before reading the full story linked in the OP.
