Newspaper Hires Armed Guards After It Enraged The Community By Publishing Info On Local Gun Owners

Caryn McBride, Journal News Rockland Editor

A New York state newspaper is taking drastic steps to protect its staff after it enraged gun owners in two counties.

The Journal News, a Gannett-owned newspaper in Westchester, N.Y., published a map showing the names and addresses of licensed gun owners in Westchester and Rockland counties.

The Journal News tried to do the same for Putnam County, but the newspaper's request for records was denied because of the outrage the map had already caused in Westchester County.

That outrage was so intense the newspaper resorted to hiring armed security guards to man its headquarters after receiving multiple threats, The Rockland Country Times reported Tuesday.

The threats were reportedly so concerning, Journal News Rockland Editor Caryn McBride filed at least two reports with local police.

One reader decided to use a different tactic to express his anger at the newspaper.

After the map was published, incensed reader Christopher Fountain used his blog to release the name, home address, and phone number of the paper's publisher, editor, and the reporters behind the map.

Armed guards?.........why didn't she just install a very strict warning sign......"no weapons allowed", on the door to the building?

Everyone knows that is a deterrent.

What a bunch of hypocritical idiots we have in this country.

I guess she figured calling the police dont do much good, they mostly show up to fill out a report AFTER you need them.

Fox was just doing a report on ths subject and something came up I have never heard before.

It so happens that the sheriffs of that county and the county next door has family members with carry permits and that their names are listed in the newspaper.

They are not happy about that. Wonder if the sheriff partols will be real busy to get to certain houses "in a timely mater."

I also heard the DA was on this list,carries for good reason, and not at all happy about it.

I also heard them tell about a womaan who had problems with a stalker was also on the list and she HAD been living there in peace with no stalker problems for 2 years. ALL changed when this came out, she now getting repeated hang up phone call all night now.
