    A local New York newspaper is drawing the ire of its readers after publishing an interactive map that shows the names and addresses of thousands of residents who have handgun permits.

    The online map was published by The Journal News along with an article under the headline: "The gun owner next door: What you don't know about the weapons in your neighborhood."

    The newspaper obtained, and then published, the names and addresses of pistol permit holders in Westchester and Rockland counties through a Freedom of Information Act request.

    The article, in explaining the decision to publish the information, pointed to the school massacre in nearby Newtown, Conn., and the concerns of some residents about which of their neighbors might have firearms.

    But readers swiftly condemned the move. They pointed out that the interactive map could make the gun owners a target, but also make clear to would-be robbers which homes do not contain a gun.

    1. This is a clear violation of privacy.
    2. It is the gutter journalism and lacks any semblance of integrity.
    3. This can prove disastrous for the community for two reasons:
    A. The unarmed homes are now easy targets.
    B. The houses with guns may be robbed for their guns when the owners are not home.

    Liberals are just being nasty because that is what liberals do.

    It's Christmas Day.

    It's probably better that my opinion isn't expressed, this day.

    This is not journalism, this clearly jeopardizing the innocent. The reporter and the paper should be prosecuted and locked up, and if any comes to harm as a result of this reckless endangerment, stand trial as murderers.

    Seems that many (most?) journalists take "freedom of the press" to mean "as long as I print it, or say it on my talk show, I'm not responsible for any consequences!"!

    Most of them need a basic course in logic and acceptance of personal responsibility!!!!

    Agenda driven to say the least. It boggles the mind that this idea went channels and was somehow approved.

    Maybe they should publically post the name and addresses of those that posted theirs as homes without guns. See how they feel.

    I wouldn't call, or go to his house. It won't matter how nice you are or how benign your words they will be seen as a threat and he would likely report the call and press charges...and sue you.

    One newspaper does a stupid act, yet you blame monolithic "liberals". You lose any credibility when you do this.

    Well, as usual Revmitchell provides a link to a source with a notorious reputation for ignoring the real facts. Sorry, but after 2012 election coverage, Fox news has no credibility and goes to the garbage pile with Limbaugh, Beck, Drudge, World Net Daily and other extremists.

    I have one question, aside from the fact that publishing the names and addresses of gun owners was made legal by provisions in the Freedom of Information Act put in place by the Bush administration under the Patriot Act. Yeah, some of that stuff is going to come back and bite some people in the backside. How do you know that the journalist in question is a "liberal"? Because the clear and simple fact of the matter is that you don't. The guy could be a card carrying NRA member, proudly displaying the addresses of gun owners in his community to scare away robbers, and having half a dozen Romney/Ryan signs in his yard. Westchester County, New York is a rich people's haven, a Republican, conservative paradise.

    I did see where someone gave the gun owners an out by fearing that now this list gives criminals the opportunity to break in and steal their guns, in case the statistics will show that owning a gun didn't stop break ins. The NRA has seen to it that criminals no longer need to break in to houses to steal guns, they can just buy them at any gun show or gun dealer.

    I'm glad the ministers at my church have enough maturity that they would not post information as Mr Mitchell has done.

    And there you have it. When you don't have the facts on your side, and you can't support your ridiculous contention, name call. That's about all right wing extremists have left.
