You should realize with all the love shown to you on Topix that you would be one of the first targets of vigilante justice if it were tolerated, don't you?
If you are even remotely serious with that comment, it speaks volumes about the degredation of our society as brought on by the political correctness of the Left.

Blog turns tables on gun map paper

By KATIE GLUECK | 12/27/12 7:37 AM EST Updated: 12/27/12 11:06 AM EST

A blogger who retaliated against a New York newspaper that came under fire for identifying people with gun licenses in its circulation area explained on Thursday why he published the names and home addresses of the paper’s employees.

“Well, I just thought they were being hypocrites,” said Christopher Fountain on CNN’s “Early Start.”“In the aftermath of Newtown, it was obviously one tragedy, but somehow they were conflating legal gun owners with some crazed tormented devil up in Newtown and putting the two together. And I was offended by that and I wondered how they would like it if their addresses were published.”

Fountain’s blog on Wednesday linked to a map that identified — with pictures — employees of the suburban New York newspaper, the Journal News, as well as their places of residence. That move came several days after the Journal News published interactive maps of Westchester and Rockland counties, which named people with gun licenses and included their addresses — igniting outrage from the right and from some readers.

“We knew publication of the database [as well as the accompanying article providing context] would be controversial, but we felt sharing information about gun permits in our area was important in the aftermath of the Newtown shootings,” Janet Hasson, president and publisher of the Journal News Media Group, told POLITICO Wednesday in a statement.

In an accompanying piece, the paper had said that some citizens “would like lawmakers to expand the amount of information the public can find out about gun owners” after the Newtown massacre.

Fountain swung back at that response.

“Well, she could have just published the number of gun permits, which is actually quite small, if she wanted to show an issue that there are 2,000 legally registered guns in her county, fine,” he said.“But the fact that they put the addresses — I’ve received e-mails from abused women who were under protective order and in hiding and they’re terribly afraid that now their names and addresses are all over the Internet and accessible through that map.”

He added that he was giving the paper a taste of its own medicine.

“The media has been exposing, harassing personal details of people for a long time,” Fountain said.“I don’t believe I’m escalating, I believe I’m punching back.

“My original point in posting this was to just show those particular reporters and the publisher what it feels like,” he continued.

The map that was eventually posted offered a much more extensive list of Journal News employees.

People who have the following types of valuables should be published:

Jewels

Drugs, legal and illegal

Very expensive automobiles

Anything that can be pawned for profit

Gun collections not just registered guns

Gold and Silver

Electronics

If you have a safe containing valuables, where it is located AND the combination to the safe

==========

Actually it's none of Governments business what anyone owns. IF Government knows what people own that info is NOT public information. Government shall NOT reveal what people own on their property or concealed in their vehicles.

It's called "Private Property" for that reason.

"Public Property" is owned by the public and is open to the public for their inspection. BTW the Government owns NOTHING. Everything the Government controls is Public Property, owned by the taxpayers.

I read this yesterday and was a little luke warm to the idea, only because there may have been employees who took issue with the article. However, that being said, I think there needs to be a level of responsible journalism when dealing with people's lives and personal privacy. I think the paper went over the line, again in an effort to create an on-going emotional movement against guns. All their comments are crap and excuses in an attempt to cover their arse.

Actually BY LAW public records, such as sales tax permits, public meeting minutes and gun license information IS PUBLIC INFORMATION.

Your absurd statement that the government owns nothing is proof that you have no understanding of the law at all.

The last I checked, I along with another 300 million people are the"government" and those who get paid by us, answer and serve us, not the other way around. I would check on that public records comment, there are many states, including Minnesota, that have some very specific laws as to what is a matter of public record and what isn't, so you all encompassing statement should probably be toned down a little!
