Journal News Gun Map Leads to More Stolen Guns

Don’t think of this as accidental. It’s deliberate. The left specializes in causing chaos that benefits them either way. Putting up a map of gun owners is a win-win scenario. If a break-in happens, then they can use that to show that legal guns can easily be stolen. Even if the break-in only happened because of their own stunt.
Two handguns and two pistol permits were stolen from the New City home of a man whose name and address are listed on the website of a local newspaper as possessing gun permits, police said.
The thieves ransacked the house Wednesday night, breaking into two safes on the home’s third floor and stealing a third safe. The guns were in the stolen safe, police said.
The burglary comes less than a week after a White Plains homeowner who, too, was listed on the Journal News website as having gun permits, arrived home to find his home burglarized with jewelry missing and an attempted break-in of his gun safe. The thieves were not successful and no guns were stolen.
The newspaper has not responded to numerous calls for comment.
The head of the White Plains Police Benevolent Association, Robert Riley, has been one of the fiercest critics of the Journal News map, saying it puts the lives of police and ordinary citizens in potential danger.
But then again putting people’s lives in danger is the whole point of gun control.
