Journal News of Westchester and Rockland County, NY Publishes Names and Addresses of Gun Owners

The Journal News has taken a disgusting stance on gun ownership and went through the databases of gun owners in two counties in NYS and listed every single law abiding gun owner by name and address even going so far as to map them out.

When they received criticism their retort was that it was public information.

Update: According to the laws of NYS on February 24, 2012 giving out a list of gun owners in a geographic location is illegal. You can see the law here.  Hat tip BenInNY  if you want to tweet him.

The story is here on Yahoo. 

So here is a list of all their twitter account names associated with their paper. Let's see if they like their information shared. Names of the reporters are listed. 

Now some of the names do not come up in online searches but Brian Howard comes up for Rochester, NY as well as Sherburne, NY. 

Jill Mercadante comes up for two addresses in NY. One in Brooklyn and the other in Lindenhurst.

Chris Vaughan comes up in Medford, NY.

Yaron Steinbuch comes up at the following address:  23 Scenic Cir, Croton On Hudson, NY 10520

David Mckay Wilson, who also goes by David Allen Wilson comes at the following address: 162 Bay Shore Rd
North Babylon, NY 11703

Update: And here is Dwight Worley , the reporter on the story, whom another blogger found and also found is a gun owner : "Dwight R Worley

23006 139 Ave, Springfield Gardens, NY 11413 But you might want to call him first to let him know you’ll be dropping in: (718) 527-0832 "http://christopherfountain.wordpress.com/2012/12/24/so-how-does-journal-news-reporter-dwight-r-worley-rate-a-nyc-pistol-permit/  Hat tip again BenInNY who provided the link.

Those are the first few names that are publicly found. I can continue. Would the Journal like me to or would they rather that names of law abiding people not be listed online and mapped out for any reader to see?

I encourage any twitter follower who has read this to continue down the list and list the names and addresses they find. Feel free to tweet me the info so I can post it here as well.
