    They seem to have that constitutional right. I am glad I have the right to boycott the paper.

      Unfortunately .....when they break the rules of ethical reporting
      no one can take it back and unpublish those names !  Why the hell don't they publish the  name of felons who  acquire and own guns illegally .! I fear theres not enough paper !

    Not something I would do, but meanwhile the pro-gun side has put out a video claiming that Sandy Hook never happened and was somehow faked by Obama to take our guns that has now been watched about 8.5 million times. So, perhaps the paper's strategy is to fight stupid with stupid. Perhaps they believe that two equal beams of moronity will cancel each other out.

    I'm not entirely sure why people mind. Seems to me it would serve as a pretty handy guide of addresses for robbers to avoid.

    This story about what the News did, left me feeling unsettled..  The "reason" this was done, has me in a quandary, actually, on my true opinion of this.  It does not surprise me that the NRA and gun owners have every reason to be outraged....however, they do fight for THEIR constitutional rights, so they can hardly scream about any rights that apply to ALL of us.
    Your little humor, horseback...actually brings up a very serious question......Precisely HOW do "they" intend to guard against the inevitable issue of "stolen guns?"....Excellent question, horseback.  I'm eager to see the responses.

      Its not even a serious question of  the issues in REAL need of change ,  the point is , watch now what changes in New York because of the list ......Nothing  !   Nothing except that the Media gains a little attention from the death of twenty kids !

    I asked a similar question several weeks back and the overwhelming majority of answers said no. My opinion has been and remains no, this is not okay. It is an invasion of privacy regardless of the fact that the info is deemed "public." The term "public information" came well before the advent of the internet, let alone the internet on a vast array of device...including mobile phones, in vehicles, and kitchen refrigerators accessible for anyone for any reason 24/7.

    I do not agree with making this information easily available to anyone with an internet connection or otherwise. People who truly feel they need this info, should have to go to the local courthouse to get it while leaving their name, address, phone number, and a copy of valid ID when requesting it.

    It would be much more helpful if the JO (I'm attempting to not provide them any more boost in search rankings over this) published the address and other identifying information for the criminals that buy, sell, and profit from the sales and transport guns illegally. There is much more value in this information but the JO is probably desperate to draw attention to their declining and likely going defunct newspaper.

    It was simply stupid.  First of all the list was exptremely outdated.  They had listed my father at an address he had not lived at in more than 20 years.  Secondly, this list only covers permits.  Since, shotguns and rifles, (including the so-called "assault weapons" everyone is so excited about) do not require a permit, they barely mentioned a fraction of the gun owners in the area.   In fact the area they covered was a major suberb of NYC.  So the majority of the people they listed were ex-law enforcement like my father that required permits for their service revolvers when they retired.  And what was the politically ostracize law abiding citizens. Ofcourse when their names and address were published on a blog in return, they weren't too happy.  Journalist seem to really hate when you use journalism on them.
