Newspaper decrying guns uses armed guard to protect itselfon January 2, 2013 @ 6:40 am (Updated: 10:15 am - 1/2/13 )
names and addresses of legal gun owners? It appears to be OK with guns after all.
The Journal News listed thousands of names and home addresses of gun owners in Westchester and Rockland Counties shortly after the mass shooting, and the paper is in the process of compiling a more expanded list that includes gun owners in Putnam County. The list would include nearly 44,000 names.
The paper has received threats since it posted the original list. Some critics then posted the names, home addresses and other personal information of the paper's reporters and editors.
In response, the paper has now hired armed guards to protect its building and people in West Nyack, New York.
The Journal News main competitor, the Rockland County Times is making some hay with this one. "Guns are good for the goose but not for the gander," Dylan Skriloff, the Times' associate publisher & editor-in-chief wrote.
