Ha! Where are the Journal News reporters in YOUR neighborhood?

Readers here at FWIW have done an admirable job of supplying that information, but here’s an interactive map - hey, boys, to answer Clevon Litttle’s question, this is where the white wimmen at!

You can save these children or you can sign a gun-free zone petition

Save the Children

Won’t you please help?

The excuse put forth by Journal News editor Cynthia Royle Lambert* for publishing the names and addresses of gun owners is that the public needs to know which of their neighbors homes is gun free and therefore a safe place for their own children to play. This is spurious nonsense, of course: the sole reason to publish the interactive map was to follow up on the Newtown massacre and harass gun owners while emotions run high.

But if child safety were indeed the point, the paper would do far more to advance that goal by compiling a data base (easily obtained from public records) of the location and owners of private swimming pools, which are at least 530X more likely to kill a child than a gun. Can’t sell papers doing that, naturally, and property owners might be annoyed and boycott your advertisers, but “if it saves the life of just one child …”

Here’s another thought experiment: just like guns, many autos are stolen on order – thieves look for specific vehicles that have been requested by car ring bosses. Suppose the Journal News were to compile and publish an interactive map showing the exact address of each registered car owner with the year, make and model of the cars he kept. No more cruising the streets, hoping to find a 2007 Honda Accord for the Boys from the Bronx, they could drive right over to 3 Gate House Lane in Mamaroneck and pick up what they wanted – oh joy!

Strip the emotional baggage away from the word “gun” and that’s exactly what the Journal has done. Even worse, they’ve set it up so that law abiding gun owners, those least likely (almost infinitesimally) to commit crimes with their guns will have them stolen and put out on the street, where they will be used by criminals against what, in the liberals’ dreams would be defenseless citizens. So would the Journal be praised for establishing a shopping bazaar for car thieves? I think not. Same logic here: love guns or fear them, right wing nut case like me or sane, sober liberal like yourself, we should all denounce this asinine act of the Journal News.

And the pressure grows

Jammie Wearing Fools on of my favorite blogs, links here, and my all time favorite, InstaPundit, links to Jammie Wearing Fools.

For all you new visitors, you should know that this blog is supposed to be a mixture of whatever interests me and a running report on what’s happening in the Greenwich real estate market, so come back next week and you’ll probably be disappointed. But for this week, there is no real estate activity and I was wondering how I’d fill the pages until on Christmas Eve, appropriately, the Journal News came out with its bright idea of exposing law-abiding gun owners and feeding that information to criminals and busybodies.

Oh, I do love fools.

Here’s what viewership’s looked like just a few minutes ago,  even before Jammie and the Professor provided their links. Thank you, Journal-News. Hope your past three days have been as much fun as mine.

Keep up the heat – and look who’s got the home address of Cyndee Royle, editor of the Journal-News?

Reader “Jeff” sends along a link to the latest article in the White Plains tabloid, Journal-News, reporting on the hornets nest occasioned by their publication of an interactive map showing the identity and address of all registered gun owners in Westchester County and surrounding areas.

Cyndee Royle

Cyndee Royle in better days, long ago and far way

Editor Cyndee Royle defends her decision and in fact sounds quite smug about it. Her paper is apparently still trying to obtain, and publish, information on how many guns, and their type, are registered to each owner, presumably to make shopping easier for gun thieves. Nothing more disappointing than getting a Remington 870 when you’ve been hoping for a Ruger Mini Thirty.

Let’s keep those cards and letters (and telephone calls, of course) coming.

EDITOR: 

Miss Royle’s married name is Lambert. She lives in White Plains and here is her Facebook page complete with pictures of her and her kids. Hello Sanctimony.
