The NY newspaper who “outed” 50,000 legal pistol permit holders in Rockland and Westchester Counties and pissed off hundreds of millions of people worldwide, because Guns Are Bad, M’kay? and You Need To Know That Your Crazy Neighbors Are Packing now has a full and complete understanding of the phrase “the chickens have come home to roost” and has now hired armed security guards to protect their business offices (and presumably the homes of their employees that a swift and vengeful internet published as a counter attack). The very reason that people own guns in the first place, which the Journal News seems to think is so eeeeevil, is exactly what they immediately resorted to when the jaundiced and steely eye of public opinion turned against them. Complete hypocrisy. Completely typical of our liberal elite masters too.
Armed guards from RGA Investigations have taken up post at the Journal News’ Rockland County headquarters
Guns are good for the goose but NOT for the gander.
A Clarkstown police report issued on December 28, 2012, confirmed that The Journal News has hired armed security guards from New City-based RGA Investigations and that they are manning the newspaper’s Rockland County headquarters at 1 Crosfield Ave., West Nyack, through at least tomorrow, Wednesday, January 2, 2013.
According to police reports on public record, Journal News Rockland Editor Caryn A. McBride was alarmed by the volume of “negative correspondence,” namely an avalanche of phone calls and emails to the Journal News office, following the newspaper’s publishing of a map of all pistol permit holders in Rockland and Westchester.
Due to apparent safety concerns, the newspaper then decided to hire RGA Investigations to provide armed personnel to man the location.
Private investigator Richard Ayoob is the administrator of RGA. He told the Clarkstown Police on Friday, December 28 that there had been no problems on site at the Journal News headquarters despite the massive influx of phone calls and emails.
Golly, I can’t believe it. They felt unsafe and insecure, so they turned to firearms? Say it ain’t so Joe. Say it ain’t so.
It is not clear whether the negative reaction has threatened the Journal News’ true popularity as a news source. As an anecdotal piece of evidence, the Rockland County Times confirms receiving an influx of new subscribers who stated they cancelled their subscription to the Journal News due to the gun story.
When I was growing up, the J-N was a decent little small town paper. Things have changed. May they go down in flames even faster than Newsweek, lose every subscriber and advertiser, and even have their rag paper rejected by the recycling centers.
Every weapon of military utility designed within the past 100+ years was gone. This isn’t a society stocking up on certain guns because they fear they may be banned. This is a society preparing for war.
Molon Labe, mofos.
As Spock said to Kirk in Wrath of Kahn: By the book Captain, by the book. BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!
Locally - even our best stocked (’cuz it was so damned expensive) store is down to slim pickings - almost all of the rifles are gone. These do as I say, not as I do moroons (after the vote on the fiscal cliff deal - I’m now convinced that it is US vs THEM - and not JUST Right/Left, GOP/Dem. We are being sold out big time and arms will be our last defense to save America.
Sad what has become of America - this last vote was just proof - the Dems weren’t the only ones selling us out - it is all who believe that America’s Constitution is wrong and we need to join the one glowball world order - that includes the media, wall street, many CEOs, the GOP, and of course the unions.
America is being destroyed from the inside. And hopefully, enough will start fighting back - now that the GOP has shown, that it won’t even attempt to defend us anymore. - don’t forget ‘warrantless wiretaps’ passed again - where are those noble leftests who screamed invasion of privacy when evil booosh ‘passed’ it?
God Help America.
When I saw that “Ayoob” name, the exact same thing came to mind. The MSM hypocrisy is thick as syrup.
Speaking of: I note O’Bugger has stated that “We cannot cut our way to prosperity” - “we” apparently meaning the government.
I guess he thinks “we, the people” can, though. We economize, give the hard-won surplus to them, they give it away to the idle, unemployed, unproductive and lazy folks, and we’re supposed to prosper.
mcgoo has it it exactly right. Just like here. And the govt. makes no apology for giving away millions and million while telling folks at home, we are all in this together. Uh huh.
MPs can claim expenses when they have to use the train to get to work. Rates for rail use is thru the roof, but for the working stiff, anyone who must use rail, be interesting to see if they can declare the high cost of their travel as, a work related expense. We know the answer to that one.
