    There's an old saying, "pick your battles" the newspaper staff pulled a dick move trying to embarras gun owners into complying with their wishes and pissed a lot of people off. Now the pissed off people have names and addresses, turnabout is fair play. Now, I don't want to see any harm come to them BUT, they DID go out of their way to piss off people they knew were armed. "Pick your battles".

    I guess the reason I don't feel an ounce of pity for the journalists is because the media in general from print to broadcast has used their soapbox to take sides, advance messages in biased manners, and otherwise mess with people they didn't like. It's a sick kind of justice that they got a taste of what they put out, but not at all inappropriate.

    Always very upsetting to liberals when they receive a little of their own medicine.

    Hopefully these 'journalist' learned their lesson.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Journalists’ Addresses Posted In Revenge For Newspaper’s Google Map Of Gun Permit Owners | TechCrunch
    A week after the Newtown massacre, The Journal News published an interactive Google Map with the names and addresses of gun permit owners in select New York cities. The bold move has escalated into a transparency arms race, after a Connecticut lawyer posted the phone number and addresses of the Journal‘s staff, including a Google Maps satellite Image of the Publisher’s home. “I don’t know whether the Journal’s publisher Janet Hasson is a permit holder herself, but here’s how to find her to ask,” read Christopher Fountain’s blog post. The double irony here is that open data was heralded as a tool of enlightened civic dialog, and has been co-opted for fierce partisanship, bordering on public endangerment.
    The Journal‘s original publication of the map sparked nationwide outrage and thousands of angry comments. Gun permit holding is public information in New York, and can be acquired through a mere request via the Freedom of Information Act. But, coming on the heals of the Newtown shooting, the publication had a clear provocative intent. “New York residents have the right to own guns with a permit and they also have a right to access public information,” said a defiant Hasson.
    Given that Bushmaster .223-caliber rifle used in the School shooting was reportedly legally registered with the killer’s mother, the Google Map sparked a debate about whether gun owners should be labeled like other potential menaces to society, “The implications are mind-boggling,” said Marine Scott F. Williams to The Journal News, “It’s as if gun owners are sex offenders (and) to own a handgun risks exposure as if one is a sex offender. It’s, in my mind, crazy.”

    Funny how people always seem to give a **** after the SECOND eye and not so much after the first.

    Do unto others as you would have others do to you. Those journalists got done to them what they did to people merely exercising their constitutional rights.

    They aren't even really journalists, in this instance they did a little bit of work but more than half the time all they do is use the AP newswire.
