Janet’s List claims first success

We're just SOOO proud!

Isn’t that great? We still have readers! (Janet Hasson, 3 Gate House Lane, Mamaroneck, NY)

One of the homes identified as having guns on Janet Hasson’s Journal News interactive map has been hit by burglars – target: the gun safe. Next up, the first murder of an abused woman who, until the map’s publication, had been hiding from her husband. “You want that bitch’s address? Sure, we got that!”

A White Plains residence pinpointed on a controversial handgun permit database was burglarized Saturday, and the burglars’ target was the homeowner’s gun safe.

At least two burglars broke into a home on Davis Avenue at 9:30 p.m. Saturday but were unsuccessful in an attempt to open the safe, which contained legally owned weapons, according to a law enforcement source. One suspect was taken into custody, the source said.

The gun owner was not home when the burglary occurred, the source said. The victim, who is in his 70s, told Newsday on Sunday that he did not want to comment while the police investigation continues.

“The police are doing a full investigation,” the man saidthrough a partially opened front door.

There was broken glass in the backyard Sunday and a ladder leading up to a second-story window. Neighbors on the street of modest, Colonial homes said they had heard about the burglary.

The homeowner’s name and address were included recently on the controversial interactive map of gun permit holders in Westchester and Rockland counties published on The Journal News’ website.

Too funny: Journal News removes my disclosure of publisher Janet Hasson’s address

After reading the Journal-News’ courageous exposure of the home addresses of gun owners I strolled over to the comment section and replied to another reader’s inquiry as to the home address of the publisher by supplying that information (Janet Hanson, 3 Gate House Lane, Mamaroneck NY 10543 (248) 594-2197). Checking just now, I see that the paper has deleted my response.

Well isn’t that brave of them.
