Doubling Down

That New York Gannett newspaper that published information about gun owners, including an interactive Google map, is at it again:

Apparently undeterred by retaliation from a pro-Second Amendment blogger, the editorial staff at Gannett’s “Journal News” is at it again.

After creating an uproar for publishing the names and addresses of gun owners in New York’s Westchester and Rockland counties, “Journal News” announced it will release and publish the names and addresses of permit holders in Putnam County, according to Reuters.

“Further names and addresses will be added as they become available to a map originally published on December 24 in the White Plains, New York-based Journal News,” the report notes.

Prediction: this will go on until some enraged gun owner shoots out windows at a journalist's house, at which point the New York state legislature will step in and try to craft a law to muzzle the newspapers, resulting in lawsuits.

Can it be any more obvious that journalists just have complete contempt for the Second Amendment at this point? If these bozos manage to gin up a civil war in the US over guns, it's only fair that they become targets themselves, isn't it? And when they lose that war, only poetic justice that they be stood against a wall and shot with the guns that they hate so much?
