Quotes of the day

Putnam County District Attorney Adam Levy says he is opposed to releasing the names and addresses of licensed gun owners.

In a statement Monday, he said that disclosing the information, which is public under state law, would endanger residents with permits and their neighbors and that it would be irresponsible to make the gun information available to people with criminal intentions.

Levy was responding to a Freedom of Information Law request from The Journal News/LoHud.com.

***

“The Affiliated Police Association is putting The Journal News on notice that we will hold them accountable for any incident where any of our members are involved in an incident where a person, criminal or ex-con presents themselves at the residence of one of our members as a result of their name being made public by The Journal News,” Robert Buckley, vice president of the organization, said in the release.

Richard Well, president of the Police Conference of New York, will ask that all county clerks deny requests for such records, which he said is allowable if it would endanger the life and safety of any person, the release said.

“We also urge The Journal News to cease its quest to obtain and publish this information,” Well said in the release. “It serves no legitimate purpose and could easily lead to more tragedy.”

***

During the public comments portion of Tuesday’s Orangetown Town Council meeting, Richard Molloy of Pearl River asked the board to condemn The Journal News for publishing a map of legally licensed pistol permit holders in Rockland and Westchester counties last month…

Councilman Denis Troy said he thought the map was irresponsible, which Councilman Thomas Diviny agreed with. The board voted to pass the resolution 4-0 with Stewart abstaining. He said he wanted to look more into possible repercussions from publishing the map before making a decision on it…

“The thing that got me when I first looked at it was I looked at a street and I said, ‘Oh my god, that guy’s dead.’ Twenty-five percent of that information, which is public information, is incorrect on that website. So if you think that somebody lives in a house, they don’t necessarily live in that house anymore,” Nulty said.

“These are law-abiding citizens. I think The Journal News went overboard on this, certainly.”

***

As an example, he said the list included most of the correction officers at the Rockland County Jail in New City. Because their names and home addresses were listed, and they must wear name tags while on duty, the inmates now know exactly where each guard lives, and they have been harassing and threatening those guards ever since the list appeared.

The inmates also know when the guards work, meaning they know when their families at home are alone and unprotected, and thus most subject to home invasions, kidnapping and assault. The inmates have been threatening the guards with this information since The Journal-News published the list, Nulty said, telling the guards that they have friends and family on the outside who can easily visit their homes when the guards are at work.

The chief went on to say that hundreds of people on the published list work undercover, and are not supposed to have their names and addresses made public. They include not only local village and town police here in Rockland who are detectives and on various undercover task forces such as narcotics, intelligence and organized crime, but county detectives in the Sheriff’s Department and District Attorney’s office, in addition to hundreds or even thousands of New York City police officers who live here.

Additionally, Nulty said the northern suburbs of Rockland and Westchester Counties are home to many federal undercover officers, whose identities are also supposed to be confidential, for their own safety and to safeguard their investigations.

***

[New York City Council Speaker Christine] Quinn said the publication of the list was not appropriate.

“I think the rules for getting a gun need to be tougher, but if you meet the rules, and you get a license in the legal way, and you have that license, I don’t think that should be printed in a newspaper,” she said.

Quinn added that anyone who has met the rules and received a license, “you have not done anything wrong. You’ve met the legal standard.”

***

The problem here is threefold:

Making this list public put gun owners in danger. There are former judges on that list—even reportedly a woman who was the victim of stalking. There are lunatics on both sides of the aisle, and we have already seen proof of that. There have been threats to the paper and it’s personnel, even their families—so much so they had to hire security to protect them. And there are gun owners who have been contacted by fanatical gun opponents who have threatened their lives as well. (The gun opponents wouldn’t be using a gun, I assume?)

What good does this do? Or will it do? The friends and neighbors in Newtown, Conn. knew that the shooter’s mother was a gun collector who had guns in her home. That did not prevent the massacre; nor will listing these people’s names and addresses prevent any potential violent act by one of those gun owners or anyone in those homes in those two counties.

It’s a slippery slope. What’s next? Lists of those who are on welfare? Lists of those who subscribe to pornographic magazines? You get the point. We as Americans are entitled to some level of privacy—gun owners included.

***

“The whole battle over the Second Amendment has little to do with crime or any of these things” Mr. Keene said. “It has to do with culture and the view that different people have about what kind of a country this ought to be.”…

“It wasn’t until the culture wars of the late 1960′s, 70′s and 80′s that, all of a sudden, the Second Amendment became anathema to liberals who viewed it, really I think culturally, as a as symbol of an America they didn’t like, an America in which people took responsibility for themselves and for the protection of their families, an America which didn’t look to the state for the answer to all of its problems,” said Mr. Keene. “And the media, the elite media, if anything, represents that view more than almost any segment of our society.”…

“What happened there in New York with the posting of the legitimate, licensed pistol owners in Rockland County and others has had tremendously terrible consequences. As you know, now prison guards had their home addresses listed by that newspaper and are now under threat from prisoners and their allies outside,” Mr. Keene said. “This was an incredibly irresponsible thing that was an attempt by this elite to demonize people who own firearms legitimately.”

***

Would you publish a database of people who have filed for bankruptcy? People who have been foreclosed? People who have tax liens? Or would you say this information, while public, has no news value; tells a reader nothing he needs to know and does so at a price of discomfiting some law-abiding citizen, putting their business in the street?…

[I]f one consequence is that some New York state gun owners feel exposed, the larger consequence for all of us is a further chipping away of private spaces, a further compromise of the increasingly quaint idea that one has a right to live peacefully and an expectation to not be bothered in so doing.

This is not about freedom of the press or freedom to own guns. It is, rather, about the freedom to be left alone, and whether that’s still sustainable or whether henceforth we must all live exposed. The technology being what it is, it’s worth remembering that the answer to that question, whatever it may be, will be shaped both by journalists and by those who are not.

“Now the firestorm began when the Journal News identified gun owners in a pedophile-like interactive map,” Pirro said during the opening of her Saturday night show. “The battered woman hiding from her abuser whose address has been protected by the courts. The police officer whose family is now in jeopardy. The witness who testified against the bad guy who is in jail and, for years, has been stewing about that witness.”

This message is for any politician or staffer reading this: Go look at the front page of DRUDGE right now. You fools in politics never realize that there are some genies you can’t put back in the bottle. You stand on the bodies of dead children to go for your wet dreams on gun control, talking about confiscation this, and retroactive registration that, and gun-nuts this, and domestic terrorists that, and you always think that your words will have no consequences. Idiot “journalists publish the names and addresses of law abiding citizens for the “crime” of exercising a right specifically enumerated in the highest law of the land. Then, suddenly, 200 families have already signed up to build a “liberty fortress” in Idaho, to be joined by thousands others. And do you think something like that wont be replicated all across the country, in multiple states? Rather than being coolheaded, you elite politicians start vilifying every man and woman who simply value the second amendment and the Constitution it’s a part of. You fools.

On another note: The Denver Broncos could not get a post season win with Manning…but they did last year with Tebow…let the Tebow curse begin.

Cindy Munford on January 12, 2013 at 9:12 PM

Would you publish a database of people who have filed for bankruptcy? People who have been foreclosed? People who have tax liens? Or would you say this information, while public, has no news value; tells a reader nothing he needs to know and does so at a price of discomfiting some law-abiding citizen, putting their business in the street?

These are ridiculous examples. People who have filed bankruptcy or been foreclosed on or who have tax liens have gotten themselves into a problem that many should be ashamed of. This is not even in the same universe as someone who chooses to exercise his 2nd amendment rights and doesn’t want the world to know he has guns, which is his right. After all, aside from owning guns at home (and in Pennsylvania we have no gun registration), concealed carry permits are all about …. CONCEALED carry. What’s the point of having anything like a concealed carry permit if everyone is going to be told that one is carrying?

But to try and compare all this with bankruptcy? There’s nothing to be ashamed about in owning guns. I’m proud to own guns, but it’s no ones business and the guns are not here for publicity but for protection – including the protection of one not knowing whether there are guns here or not.

We started out as underdogs in a long, competitive primary. But despite the odds being stacked against us, Governor Palin and SarahPAC showed daring leadership by endorsing my campaign.

“We’re touching on something really deep here,” Touré opined. “[People] feel very defensive as well, because of the very racist – very nakedly racist — attacks on him that we see constantly.” He noted that the word policing was “silly,” but a sense of defensiveness about the “hatred” Obama faces is legitimate and justified.

I had to read that headline carefully – I thought it referred to 2013.
Still, 62 dead children is 62 too many.

Toure? He sees racists everywhere…

that would be nice …. even nicer would be if the advertisers left in droves as well …

Advertisers tend to leave newspapers with no readership.

Why pay to advertise to a vacuum?

I saw a bit of that show, people said that it took them over a year to get permission to become legal gun owners. Does that qualify as impulsive in New York? Also, we just bought a new vehicle and some kind of paperwork we had to sign was for DHS? Why does DHS need to know if I but a car?

HomeLand Security and Patriot Act
*********************************

It is clear — especially in the aftermath of September 11th — that no bank or financial institution wants to see its name in the headlines as the source of funds that facilitated an act of terrorism. Effective screening of Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) and other government terrorist and law enforcement lists is one method by which the financial services industry and the government can work together to ensure that terrorists don’t use our own banks against us. Doing so is now the law

Affected Financial Institutions

The new OFAC regulations are not limited to banks. Insurance companies, securities and investment firms, and import/export trading companies are also subject to OFAC Rules.

More specifically, Section 352 amends the definition of a financial institute to now include:

An insured bank (as defined in section 3(h) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act)
A commercial bank or trust company
An agency or branch of a foreign bank in the United States
A private banker
A broker or dealer in securities or commodities
A thrift institution
A broker or dealer registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934
An uninsured institution (as defined in section 401(a) of the National Housing Act)
An investment banker or investment company
A currency exchange
An issuer, redeemer, or cashier of travelers’ cheques, money orders, or similar instruments
A dealer in precious metals, stones, or jewels
A loan or finance company
A pawnbroker
A travel agency
An operator of a credit card system
A licensed sender of money
A telegraph company

A business engaged in vehicle sales, including automobile, airplane, and boat sales

Persons involved in real estate closings and settlements
The United States Postal Service
An agency of the United States Government.

OFAC acts under presidential wartime and national emergency powers, as well as authority granted by specific legislation, to impose controls on transactions and freeze foreign assets under U.S. jurisdiction.(More….)

It was a very good clip. Some NY officials were in the group, who were outed.

Watch it and then give your opinion, instead of your ignorant pre-judging.

If the 2nd Amendment only applies to muskets, then the 1st Amendment only applies to Town Criers.

davidk on January 12, 2013 at 9:09 PM

I’ve been saying for many years that, if the Second applies only to muskets and flintlock rifles, then the First only applies to hand-operated presses with hand-set type.

And Freedom of Speech only applies to non-amplified speech to a crowd or individual conversation (and hand-written letters sent by horse carrier – not email) – NOT radio and television…or movies.
