Anti-gun Newspaper Hires Armed Guards After Gun Owner Outing Story

There isn't a liberal gun hater anywhere in the world that doesn't like guns when their security is threatened.

Guns are good for the goose but NOT for the gander.

A Clarkstown police report issued on December 28, 2012, confirmed that The Journal News has hired armed security guards from New City-based RGA Investigations and that they are manning the newspaper’s Rockland County headquarters at 1 Crosfield Ave., West Nyack, through at least tomorrow, Wednesday, January 2, 2013.


There isn’t a liberal gun hater anywhere in the world that doesn’t like guns when their security is threatened.

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. (see map above, red dots show every legally-registered gun owner’s home address)

Due to apparent safety concerns, the newspaper then decided to hire RGA Investigations to provide armed personnel to man the location.

Private investigator Richard Ayoob is the administrator of RGA. He told the Clarkstown Police on Friday, December 28 that there had been no problems on site at the Journal News headquarters despite the massive influx of phone calls and emails.

Gun Control Fairy Tale Exposed By Hollywood Hypocrites

McBride had filed at least two reports with the Clarkstown Police Department due to perceived threats. However, the police did not find the communications in question actually threatening. Incident-Report 2012-00033099 describes McBride telling police she was worried because an email writer wondered “what McBride would get in her mail now.”

Police said the email “did not constitute an offense” and did not contain an actual threat

The Journal News caused an international stir when they released an interactive map of pistol permit holders names and addresses in Rockland and Westchester counties last Sunday, December 23. The editors have said they believe knowing where guns are is in the public’s interest. The newspaper has also taken a strident editorial position in favor of strict gun control.

Rather than take the map down following the public uproar, the executive board at the Journal News has decided to “stick to their guns” and double-down on their original decision, as they have said a map listing all pistol permit holders in Putnam County will soon to be posted.

[update—Putnam County officials have since announced their intention to not comply with the Journal News’ request for the names and addresses of pistol permit holders]

The controversial use of the Freedom of Information Act to create the interactive map may come back to bite the Journal News and others who would prefer that pistol permits remain public record.

New York State Senator Greg Ball has already introduced state legislation to make such records off-limits to the public and Rockland County legislators led by Frank Sparaco (R) will soon introduce a bipartisan-sponsored resolution with a similar intent.

It is not clear whether the negative reaction has threatened the Journal News’ true popularity as a news source. As an anecdotal piece of evidence, the Rockland County Times confirms receiving an influx of new subscribers who stated they cancelled their subscription to the Journal News due to the gun story. source – Rockland Times

  • That figures. Just like liberal anti-gun proponent Diane Feinstein who holds a concealed carry permit in CA. I call it
    HYPOCRISY plain and simple!

  • I am aware of it thank you NTEB that is right in my area round about where I live 😉

    • Don’t worry if things get to bad I have a ham radio and if you don’t hear from me there I will see you at the dining room table with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Amen! In the mean time keep the news coming, NTEB you keep blogging and I will do the same.

  • I say we infringe their right to defend themselves. Ultimately its really a ploy to gain major attention and make money and so far it looks to be working. I AM THE SILENT MAJORITY NOT CONTRIBUTING TO THEM.

  • If I was NOT a gun holder I would be pissed. All this did was to tell the bad guys where the EASY TARGETS are. Silly libatards…….Guns are for PATRIOTS! Bet you missed this little tid-bit:

  • This newspaper is hypocritical. It wants to ban guns for the normal every day citizen, but any of the elites, it wants to have guns. They proved this by hiring armed guards. Why do you not insist on a gun free zone at your newspaper like so many want in our schools. Are you saying that newspapers and their employees are more important than our school children? How dare you lecture and condemn gun owners when you hire armed guards for protection. What hypocrisy you demonstrate.

    • Well said! You just saved me a lot of typing. :o)

  • Its the typical Liberal mindset. May God have mercy on their souls!

  • Ummm correct me if I am wrong but a gun violence parody was just shown on the O’Riley Factor. Was it this video parody here?

  • Everyone BOYCOTT the paper if you get it shut them down cancel your subsciption to it. This is an outrage. Like Ann Coulter said If you give the gun owner name give all the people who have KILLED PRECIOUS BABIES, they MURDERED LIFE that GOD ALMIGHTY CREATED all the people who are getting food stamps and free help of the backs of hard working AMERICANS print the name of the Business that DON’T PAY TAXES General Electric, Print the name of the government people that are EXEMPT from the HEALTH CARE JUNK that they want to thow on us. Well if it is soooooooo GREAT government people you get it too HIPPOCRITES. I am using RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENT here these people are very evil and GOD has the LAST WORD. PRAISE GOD.

  • I am going to point out a very enlightening thought that matches what the bible has said. We will get to what the bible has said in a minute. First let me say this.

    None of this is about Republican or Democrat any longer. None of this is about any party for that matter any longer. It is about the prophecies of the bible.

    Firstly let me explain what congress is. Congress / house of representatives was put in place to be or have a representative for every or specific number of people. In short there is one person to represent a specific number of people. All of those people constitute (house of representatives) congress. CONGRESS is suppose to stand up and speak for THE PEOPLE. Suppose to be our direct representation into the government.

    Well a short while back when the health care bill was passed (Obama care) from that time till now CONGRESS has taken the stance that “no we don’t represent the people, we represent our President and our political party. THIS IS FACT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now lets go back a little further into history for a moment. There is a little town or village called Lexington & Concord and a small group of people were gathered around and talking. They were concerned that the government at the time was not representing them. This famous expression stemmed from that time and that expression was “NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION” The government had completely lost touch with the people and the people understood that and said we have no voice.

    The culmination of this small group of people gathered together and talking formed this famous headline “THE SHOT HEARD ROUND THE WORLD”!

    Fast forward to present time again. There are small groups of people talking in little Lexington and Concord towns and villages all over the nation. What do you think they are discussing? So we have a government who is clearly doing whatever they want to do and there was a large majority of people who said they don’t want this legislation of healthcare but the government passed it anyways. They basically rammed it through, imposing their own will on the American people.

    People are starting to put 2 and 2 together and the government is aware of it. The seeds of rebirthing this nation are in this country. I AM NOT SAYING THIS IS HOW TO SOLVE ANY OF THIS. I am merely pointing to history. To continue, as long as the government continues to take the stance that they are going to dictate to the citizens what ever they want and have lost that touch with the constitution and how and why it was set up that way. There is going to be a dear price to be paid. They are forgetting that there are still a BUNCH OF AMERICANS LIVING IN THIS COUNTRY. Now what the bible says!

    Matthew 24:7
    Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.

    These are the word of God! How does any nation figure to be exempt from the word of God and his prophecies? Just a recap of history.
