Dangers of Gannett’s ethics violation outing gun owners continue to emerge

"A reformed professional burglar considers The Times Journal’s publishing of New York gun permit holders’ names and addresses a 'gold mine' of information as actual cases of individuals threatened by the action are starting to become known. Telling Greta Van Susteren of Fox News yesterday that burglars look for guns to sell to criminals, former thief and crime prevention consultant Bob Portenier explained how the interactive map published by the Gannett holding could be used to case and rob homes, resulting in guns being funneled to violent criminals who bypass the 'gun control' laws that their victims obey. Additionally, reports of threats to individual citizens, including the endangerment of current and retired law enforcement officers, illustrate how people who have life-preserving reasons to keep a low profile have now been put in harm’s way." ...

"B. Todd Jones, the Acting Director of the [ATF], and Cathy Lanier, Chief of the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, D.C., are being challenged on selective enforcement of the District’s ban on so-called 'large capacity ammunition feeding devices' for semi-automatic firearms. This column will serve as a follow-up to an earlier request asking who authorized violation of the ban, after NBC’s David Gregory produced a magazine during his Dec. 23 'Meet the Press' interview with National Rifle Association head Wayne LaPierre."

"That request was documented by Gun Rights Examiner and sent to the respective agencies via email. Because the responses to very specific questions created more questions than answers, this column will now be used to transmit an open letter to the two law enforcement executives:" ...

"When the Journal News in New York’s Westchester County decided to publish the identities of gun permit holders in two counties – information it was legally able to obtain in New York but beyond the reach of Washington State news agencies – it ignited a backlash that seems to have surprised the editor and publisher, which suggests neither is half as smart as they apparently think they are." ...

"'You don't hunt with a 50-caliber weapon, my friend,' Munoz derisively told NRA lobbyist Todd Vandermyde before the panel voted for the weapons ban by a 6-4 vote."
"First, Muñoz is dead wrong. Second, no serious Second Amendment scholarship argues that the Founding Fathers devoted 10% of the Bill of Rights to the sport of hunting (although with some creativity in defining 'sport,' there might be a case to be made)." ...

... "While the number of gun sales is steadily on the rise, according to several studies the amount of households with guns has actually been decreasing for several years - as are murders and crimes involving guns. An analysis by FactCheck.org of the Annenberg Public Policy Center shows that last month the homicide rate involving guns fell to an all-time low since 1981. The number of armed robberies and assaults has reached its lowest point since 2004, though the number of suicides involving guns has reached its highest point since 1998."

"... The woman was working in an upstairs office when she spotted a strange man outside a window ... she took her 9-year-old twins to a crawlspace before the man broke in using a crowbar."

"But the man eventually found the family."

"'The perpetrator opens that door. Of course, at that time he's staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver,' ..."

I would own a gun if New York City laws didn't make it extremely difficult to do so. But I nevertheless find Keene's arguments disingenuous.

Bolt-action rifles and shotguns can also be used for hunting and home defense. Unfortunately, those guns aren't particularly lucrative for gunmakers. ..." ...

The Second Amendment was put into place to combat these fears and to ensure that the federal government could not raise a standing army powerful enough to overcome an armed populace." ...

The final measure mentioned would be the strictest of its kind in the nation." [emphasis added]
