    Exactly, as they should have. Cary's question and mine above it were facetious. You know damn well they wouldn't out their own employees who had gun permits. It's pretty two faced of them to even hire armed guards if they are so against guns... That's the whole point... But then again, that is the liberal way... Do as we say, not as we do.

    Now CT wants to do the same thing for the whole state of CT. What a great idea ... NOT.

    The clerk in Putnam Co. refused to release their list. He said that the FOIL law allowed him to refuse if he believed it would endanger public safety. However, based on a precedent with the WJS 30 years ago, he may not win that one.

    Meanwhile, some "bad guys" came forward to say that they would have loved to have such a list when they were burglars.

    This has totally blown up in the secular progrssives face.
    The list is NOT accurate and may well have violated many laws.
    Names on the list include those who have died, those that are protected by court orders against stalkers, LEO and the like.

    The left is pathetic.............maybe we should list those who recieve entitlements?
    Gays??
    Recipients of abortions?
    Illegal aliens???

    No, just outdated innacurate lists that play to your ideology.

    You leftys all must be very proud!!!

    Actually, I think it would be kind of cool if the gunowners had accepted the signs ... and watched what happened when they had those signs on their lawns. "Surprise, bad guys! I lied!"

    Journal News Removes Controversial Gun Map

    AP | By By JIM FITZGERALD Posted: 01/18/2013 5:55 pm EST | Updated: 01/18/2013 7:48 pm EST

    WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — A suburban New York newspaper that outraged gun owners by posting the names and addresses of residents with handgun permits removed the information from its website Friday.

    The Journal News took down the data just three days after the state enacted a gun control law that included privacy provisions for permit holders.

    The provisions were a reaction to interactive maps the newspaper published on LoHud.com that pinpointed thousands of permit holders in Westchester and Rockland counties.

    Gun rights activists had immediately complained that permit owners' privacy was being violated. They said the map could guide burglars to their homes while police groups claimed the map could lead ex-convicts to the officers who had put them away.

    The addresses of some Journal News staffers were posted online, and threats were called in to the newspaper's offices. The newspaper hired armed guards in response. (That's some funny sheet right there)
    Janet Hasson, president and publisher of The Journal News Media Group, said in an emailed statement, "While the new law does not require us to remove the data, we believe that doing so complies with its spirit."

    She said the maps had been viewed nearly 1.2 million times since they were published Dec. 23. The newspaper sought the records under the state Freedom of Information Law after the Dec. 14 elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn., where a gunman who had killed his mother at home killed 20 first-graders and six educators and then committed suicide.




    The maps remained online late Friday but could no longer be manipulated to find names and addresses.

    State Sen. Greg Ball, the most vocal opponent of the posting, said, "Thank God The Journal News has finally realized the error in their judgment and done the right thing. ... I am proud to have passed legislation keeping The Journal News from doing this ever again."

    On Tuesday, as part of a gun control bill, the state Legislature passed and Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed new regulations that give permit holders several ways to opt out of the public record.

    Applicants can ask to be exempted because they are police officers or served on criminal-case juries or are victims of domestic violence. They also can just say they might be subjected to harassment.

    Hasson said Friday, "One of our core missions as a newspaper is to empower our readers with as much information as possible on the critical issues they face, and guns have certainly become a top issue since the massacre in nearby Newtown, Conn."
