A White Plains policeman reports: “You have guys who work in New York City who live up here. Now their names and addresses are out there, too.” This does not include the fire department with more than 8,000 active and retired police officers currently in Rockland. Rockland Sheriff Falco spoke to Newsday: “They have inmates coming up to them and telling them exactly where they live. That’s not acceptable to me.” Judge Pirro wasn’t happy.
We covered the Rockland County Times story last week: “According to police reports on public record, Journal News Rockland Editor Caryn A. McBride was alarmed by the volume of “negative correspondence,” namely an avalanche of phone calls and emails to the Journal News office, following the newspaper’s publishing of a map of all pistol permit holders in Rockland and Westchester. Due to apparent safety concerns, the newspaper then decided to hire RGA Investigations to provide armed personnel to man the location.”
Since then we have learned their situation to be much worse, reaction by callers was so negative they were forced to shut down lines and Putnam County is refusing to provide them with similar information, ready to go to court.
People in America react. When there was fear of Obama attempting to control our 2nd Amendment rights gun sales roared. The news media followers never covered it, in fact there was just an AP story concerning lack of interest by gun buyers. Hidden in the AP story: “The numbers of checks in Colorado rose from 35,009 in October to 53,453 in December; checks in Connecticut went from 18,761 to 29,246 during the same period. Only New Jersey and Maryland showed smaller increases than Colorado in December from one month earlier.
The net effect of Obama’s attempt to control the country is empty inventory in gun stores across America.
The Rockland Journal News, like Obama, is hiding behind the guns they are attempting to take away from the people.
