Hypocrisy: Newspaper Hires Armed Guards After Publishing Gun Owners Addresses

Last week a New York paper, The Journal News, published the names and addresses of gun permit holders in two counties on its website and threatened to publish more. Some even took to Facebook and posted a picture of the house where the columnist that wrote the article lives, with the address on the picture. Now The Journal News feels threatened and has hired armed guards for protection.

Well two can play that game and The Journal News quickly came under the same kind of attack they had laid out against innocent citizens, whose privacy they violated. As the old saying goes, "What's good for the goose, is good for the gander." The hypocrisy of the left is sometimes actually quite comical.

The addresses of the editors and executives were published in similar fashion to that of the article that unveiled where gun permit owners lived.

So how did the paper respond? According to the Rockland County Times,

A Clarkstown police report issued on December 28, 2012, confirmed that The Journal News has hired armed security guards from New City-based RGA Investigations and that they are manning the newspaper’s Rockland County headquarters at 1 Crosfield Ave., West Nyack, through at least tomorrow, Wednesday, January 2, 2013.

According to police reports on public record, Journal News Rockland Editor Caryn A. McBride was alarmed by the volume of “negative correspondence,” namely an avalanche of phone calls and emails to the Journal News office, following the newspaper’s publishing of a map of all pistol permit holders in Rockland and Westchester.

Due to apparent safety concerns, the newspaper then decided to hire RGA Investigations to provide armed personnel to man the location.

Apparently Ms. McBride received an email in which the writer wondered, “what McBride would get in her mail now.”

The police said the email was not a threat. Clearly the point was made of the stupid decision to post for the public the names and addresses of those with gun permits. Now Ms. McBride and others are crying? Just like bleeding heart liberals, isn't it? They are victims.

New York State Senator Greg Ball has already introduced state legislation to make such records off-limits to the public and Rockland County legislators led by Frank Sparaco (R) will soon introduce a bipartisan-sponsored resolution with a similar intent.

Let it be a lesson to all those that want to start messing with people's liberty. Your name, address and a lot of information is widely available on the internet. Furthermore, most of these liberals put it there on their own, so there is no invasion of privacy.

    I say all liberals should be marked on the forehead with a 666 and shooting them should be legal.

    Little cry-baby biotches! They hire armed guards after spewing their anti-gun rhetoric and getting the verbal stomping they deserved. So, now they are the "victims"? I don't think so. Those hypocrites got some poetic justice.

  • DaveNTejas

    There is no end to the hypocrisy of a liberal, and there is no shame in their ignorance.

    Well what do you expect? However, they are going to need more than armed guards their going to need a lot of lawyers and quite frankly I hope every one sues the living pants off every one of them and put them out of business, besides that's one way of getting rid of the Media airhead liberals, Goliath meet David !

    Without hypocrisy what would the left have?

    Don't try to explain the irony to them, they simply would not understand.

    The Republicans trying to be polite have always turned their other cheek. If they are going to start fighting back, I'm all for it. When they get slapped in the face, they should make a fist and hit them as hard as they can.

    We should learn to use the method Israel uses, "If you hit me, prepared to get hit back"
    RESPECT is what is all about.

    How about publishing publishing pix of these "worthies" & their homes, along with driving directions, so that we can all personally go there, at various hours of the day & night, to show our concern for our privacy? After all, what's fair is fair, right?

  • jerry1944

    If liberals really hated hypocrisy, then why in the sam hill are there, so many hypocrites among the liberal ranks? Or are they only against Republican hypocrites? Doesn't that make them the biggest hypocrites out of all hypocrites?

    Tonight I heard one far left pundit on the Five on Fox say that this was just too much for one little school and some children to have been killed and now these people from the Journal being threatened as they are. Just too much. ( Pharaphrased but pretty much the same as his words. He did use "one little school house in Connecticut, and the words killed some children". When he kept trying to go off on how these poor reporters and those who are anti gun just want to try to do the right thing and this is out of control toward them, he was interrupted by another on the Five who flat said "that's BS. He went on to tell what has happened and why without all the liberal spin and folks he sounded great! It made me think there is hope for America to hear one who usually cracks jokes about most everything come at this like a real man with a brain and a heart for America. All over this country the anti gun people have used this tragedy in Connecticut for their own agenda. It is being set up everywhere and it is way past time to let these liberal jerks know it's BS!
    Last week I listened to another liberal who thinks that "publishing the names of the reporters and journalist is not right. " The double standard and hypocrisy is pathetic. Liberals have the character of rats. Literally!

      Now that's a real slam on rats.

  • nobodysfool

    These media types are so stupid, it boggles the mind. For instance, I would be mad as hell if they published the names and addresses of gun permit holders and I was not on that list! It would leave me wide open for an attack. Likewise, their stupidity shows when they published that they had hired these armed security personnel at least until Wednesday, Jan. 2. Helloooo, robbers, vandals, and other criminal types--the security guards will be gone after Jan. 2!!!

    • Observant_One

      One has to be pleased when a half-assed idea by a collection of zealots backfires. Poetic justice, in its finest form.
