Another home targeted by the criminals using newspaper outing.
Journal News map-listed guns, permits stolen from New City home, cops say
Looks like another home was targeted by criminals using the Journal's "outing" of gun owners...only this time they got the weapons.
I hope the home owner sues that rag out of existence.
Re: Another home targeted by the criminals using newspaper outing.
I'm just a couple of miles away, the next town over from that one. I'm friends with a lot of police in the county, they said burglaries have spiked across the board since the Journal News "story."
The county clerk's office has said pistol permit applications have soared at the same time.
Homes targeted for the usual valuables are hard to attribute to the pin maps but the gun specific cases, and there are a couple more, are obvious. In these cases, only the guns and whatever valuables that happened to be in the safe were taken. TV's, laptops, all left behind.
Political screws are being turned. They talk about this very uncomfortably. They're just as disgusted as the rest of us but they've alluded to being pressured to keep quiet. They don't care if I talk though, leaving names out of it.
