Gawker Media Joins The Journal News In Declaring War On American Gun Owners
Obama’s goons in the media have pretty much declared war on legal American gun owners by publishing their names, addresses and the types of guns they own. First there was the Journal News, which is a Gannett publication. Now Gawker Media has published the names of legal gun owners in New York City.
Last month, the Journal News sparked a firestorm of protest when it published a mappable database of every licensed gun owner in Westchester and Rockland counties, north of New York City. The paper obtained the data—which New York state law explicitly and unambiguously demands be made public—through open records requests. The reaction was swift and furious—gun rights and privacy advocates published the names and addresses of the paper’s editors in retaliation, and the paper (ironically) hired armed guards to protect against threats.
Below is a 446-page list of every licensed gun owner in New York City. I obtained it from the NYPD two-and-a-half years ago via a Freedom of Information Law request. Because the NYPD is more interested in raping and/or eating ladies and spying on Muslims than it is in honoring public records law, the list contains only the names, and not the addresses, of the licensees. (If you’re curious, here’s what section 400.00 of the Penal Law of New York, entitled “Licenses to carry, possess, repair and dispose of firearms,” has to say on the matter: “The name and address of any person to whom an application for any license has been granted shall be a public record.” The only way to get the associated addresses from the NYPD, as the law requires, would be to take them to court, which no one has apparently done.)
OK people the editor of this hit piece is one John J. Cook. Here’s his address and phone number:

Here’s a picture of Cook with his two cute kids, which is his Twitter profile picture, by the way.
Pay back’s a bitch, isn’t it?
