UPDATE (January 2, 2013): Looks like the Journal News‘ attempt to publish even more names and addresses has been squashed:
Putnam County, N.Y., Won’t Release Gun Permit Info to Paper: A New York state senator crusading against the Jour… bit.ly/Zbqvnq
— Bryan Preston (@texasbryanp) January 2, 2013
State Sen. Greg Ball (R) will join Putnam County Clerk Denis Sant and other elected officials at the clerk’s office tomorrow at noon to formally announce that the Journal News will not be getting Putnam Pistol Permits records.
“The asinine editors at the Journal News have gone out of their way to place a virtual scarlet letter on law abiding firearm owners throughout the region,” Ball said in a statement, “and I thank God that Putnam County has a clerk with the guts to stand up and draw the line here.”
So it appears that this is the hill on which the Journal News has decided to die, which announced that is has plans to publish even more names and addresses of gun owners in NY.
In addition to publishing the names and addresses of these losers from the Journal News, it’s time to start publishing their photos and names of their relatives. Two can play this game.
I’d say it’s time to really take it to the enemy (yes, the media is the enemy of freedom and liberty-loving Americans and they are deserving of our full disdain and disrespect, and I urge all of my brothers and sisters to treat them with open hostility and belittlement at every opportunity).
Publishing the names, photos, and home addresses of their editors, reporters, photographers, and publishers is a good start. But not enough. Also start finding the names, photos, and addresses of their relatives. And of their advertisers.
And then it’s time to organize and begin utilizing our first amendment rights to peacefully assemble. In front of the homes of these editors and journalists. I’m not sure what the gun laws are in NY concerning long rifles, but if these protests were in Texas, I would suggest that all of the protesters bring their long rifles with them: AR-15, shotgun, 30-06, .30-30…whatever. And carry them (in a non-threatening manner) for no other reason that BECAUSE WE CAN.
The entire purpose of the Journal News’ anti-gun map is intimidation. So let’s intimidate them right back, but step it up several orders of magnitude.
