In an article title “The gun owner next door: What you don’t know about the weapons in your neighborhood” the paper linked to an interactive map titled: “Map: Where are the gun permits in your neighborhood?” where you can search neighborhoods to see who received a legal permit to own a hand gun license listed by name and address.
Some Immediate Reaction to this invasion of privacy:
“The gun -owner has an added responsibility to take all measures that their firearms do not fall into the hands of such miscreants. Beside the natural precautions, they cannot permit themselves to fall hostage in trade for access to their firearms locks.”Threats from local Government:
” If the homeowner is killed or injured, will LOHUD be charged as an accomplice to the crime?”
“It is as if they put out an ad to jewel thieves listing the names and addresses of where to find diamonds and cash.”
“This is CRAZY!! why in the world would you post every licensed gun owner information?? What do you hope to accomplish by doing this? This is the type of thing you do for sex offenders not law abiding gun owners. What next? should I hang a flag outside my house that says I own a gun?”
“Now everyone knows where the LEGAL GUNS are kept, a valuable piece of information for criminals. Why don’t you do something helpful, like trying to find out where the ILLEGAL GUNS are kept? That would be helpful to the non-criminal population”
The New York Times Reported last week that Governor Cuomo of New York said:
“Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option — keep your gun but permit it,”New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg had this to say about banning rifles:
“The president, through his leadership, could get a Bill like that (banning assault weapons) through Congress… That’s his job,” Bloomberg said.This is a invasion of privacy that does nothing to safeguard the law abiding from the criminal element. One barking dog can herd a thousand sheep to be sheared. This appears to be an attempt to abrogate the Bill of Rights. If Paul Revere had the internet, he would not have needed a horse. Please share this with all of your fellow Americans who are alarmed by a government encroachment, aided and abetted by propagandist masquerading as objective journalist.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! If you are appalled and alarmed at this abuse of power:
The best response to the gun grabbing agenda driven is for Americans nation-wide to purchase a firearm today!
I am calling on all Americans, Constitutionalists, Tea Party Patriots and 2nd Amendment Activists, to make their voices heard in NY and around the country immediately. The New York City Council just published a report recommending blatant infringements and restraints on the Bill of Rights!!
